They are for everyone, to share and be shared so that we can all benefit from them!
Type and typography have suddenly become such a huge part of our lives and, sadly, there has been no such formal training given to people with their own desktop publishing suites (Word, Pages, things like that). Suddenly everyone’s using something that they don’t fully understand the rules to, to create designs that could be so much better, if only they knew that these guidelines existed!
