Fonts are not created equal when it comes to their point size. Text set at 11 points in Times New Roman looks very different than text set in Garamond, even at the same point size. "Point size of digital type doesn’t tell you everything about how a typeface will actually look at a given size," says typography expert Ilene Strizver. Digital typeface designers are no longer limited to a piece of metal when they design their characters, so there can be more variation in a typeface's shape and size characteristics. Strizver recommends that designers "Let your eye be your guide, not the numerical size."
