I get tickled with some of the newer publications online, and this one just caught my attention with a chuckle. Taylor Holland wrote this article, and she's trying very hard to teach non-designers all about typography in a single page. She writes :
      Remember when marketers could say, “That’s not my job. I just do branding”? Modern content marketing leaders need to be well-versed in a wide range of topics: marketing automation technology, data analysis, search engine optimization, video, VR, graphic design. Considering that many of us come from writing backgrounds, there’s a lot to learn.
