Good designers spend a great deal of time sweating over typography. They agonise over typefaces, iterate through type scales and meticulously apply white space, all in the service of the reader. Then comes along a table with the temptation to get creative, and all thoughts of the reader go out of the window. And yet tables are there to be read, referenced and used, not merely looked at.

"Tables are a frequently overlooked aspect of reading, sometimes overstyled, sometimes poorly thought out. Responsiveness is a particularly thorny issue as the best solutions depend very much on the utility of the table. Tables can be packed with data, rich in content and meaning. Give them the attention they deserve."
