comment Sans vs Serif: Research Studies Only
It's not that they didn't render properly as much as it was that a lot of serif faces simply weren't designed for the screen. So they weren't typefaces that were optimized for the context they were being used in. The same could be said for serif faces in that a lot of those were also not designed for the screen...but admittedly the screen was a little more forgiven of those faces.

comment Sans vs Serif: Research Studies Only
@JoryO I think a bigger issue is that it's next to impossible to compare broad categories of type with each other. There are very legible sans faces, and very ugly illegible sans faces. Same goes for serif. And nearly any other aspect of a typeface you may be interested. At best, one can only test a specific 'font X' vs. 'font Y' in a 'very specific context Z'. And even then, if the writing is boring, people wouldn't want to read it anyways :)

Ya gotta trust your eyes. Or--at least--other people's eyes. Type design is very much an art.

comment How much should i charge for designing a mobile app?
There is no 'basic price'. In fact, any client asking that is probably a client that can't afford a real designer anyways.

comment What does the term raster and vector apply to?
@joojaa do they actual 'render' vector output? Meaning are they creating vector based texture bumps, shadows, atmosphere and the like? (If so, that's impressive! And certainly something that I'm sure can be done...like you said, lots of exceptions rendering most graphics applications these days "a bit of both")

I had a fun weekend as a kid when a few of us at a hotel realized Battlezone was rigged for free play. Good times. :)

comment What does the term raster and vector apply to?
@joojaa technically, that's a limitation of the output device...not the file itself. And most 3D apps are vector based...in that they are based on mathematical paths rather than pixels (though most all 3D apps also render raster images)
