"What is a Colophon?"

A colophon gives specific credit to the people who built the raw materials us designers use.

Type Designers work hard to make very little money, often have their work stolen, and rarely are given credit for improving perhaps the things you spend most of your day looking at: words.

Adding a colophon to your website or app not only tells me the level of detail you operate at, but also the level of respect you have for the ancient craft of type design and for the brilliant people who do it.

Good on you, colophon people.
