Ecofont

Ecofont

A friend sent me a link to this and an extra news release about it. Seems like an interesting idea, when used at small sizes that is. I did a test (extremely un-eco I know) with it, and at a normal reading weight size, it does a good job in my opinion. They state on […]

The zine takes text from the dada writer/performance artist/other worldly being, Hugo Ball. I think the two are a great […]

Agostina

Agostina

Agostina is a unique typeface in many ways. The obvious being that is is a Sans-Serif typeface that contains both beginning caps and ending lowercase swash letters. This instantly gives endless typographic possibilities to the user. Agostina takes advantage of the OpenType font format that opens further exploration with a full latin and limited alternate characters as well.

Droid (Sans, Serif & Sans Mono)

Droid (Sans, Serif & Sans Mono)

I always give Google tons of crap, because I cannot comprehend how a company who at one time had stocks steadily in the $500 range, can have such ugly products. I mean, they have adult slides, guitar hero rooms, and endless insanity in their posh offices that make the .com offices of late 90′s look […]

TypeCon 2008 Poster Show

This last year’s show was an open entry exhibit. Normally when you do something like this, you get a couple of good pieces and a lot of not so good ones. This was not at all the case for this show. Shu and I saw that we had enough room (barely) to get all the posters up if we used the walls and fabricated cardboard walls. The posters that
