Was reading up about Salmonellosis today when I came across this interesting bit of information: The Four-Inch Law refers to a regulation passed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 1975 outlawing the sale of turtles with a carapace length of less than four inches. Exceptions are present for scientific and educational use, export, and private sale. The law was enacted, according to the FDA, “because of the public health impact of turtle-associated Salmonellosis”. There had been reported cases of young children placing small turtles in their mouths, which led to the size-based restriction. Strange world, strange world…

As the icon above states, this is still very much beta phase for us and this blog. A few months back, we updated to the new and much awaited WordPress 2.5. Well to make a long story short, this package was a nightmare on OSX and the new WP admin made the process of blogging much slower, and time is something we are very limited on.
So, we have rolled back to 2.3.3, and hoping this will keep us moving ahead much smoother with our posts. But with this ‘rollback’ there might be some new bugs pop up. Let us know if you catch anything.
Thanks for your patience.
Who needs a typeface? Romance in a Readable Font, a promotional video for Absent Grotesque created by the internet’s most beloved video artists, Fred & Sharon. Including Fred, Sharon, uncomfortable silences, and animation (don’t forget the animation!).
In 2007 Michael Cina found four individuals, Eric Carlson, Matt Desmond, Maddy Nye, Travis Stearns with sound abilities in imperfection for the YouWorkForThem type foundry. The design of “a model sans serif” typeface releases all that associate with rigid standards of life. Adding some new members, the fonts were tested in Berlin, to closely view the idiosyncrasies contributed through time by all. Inspiration was taken from any character set, but nature gave us this – a perfect realist sans-serif in OpenType format with a deep and inconsistent breath.
Sometimes here at YouWorkForThem, we get some down time (or make free time) to just experiment with new ideas and small topics to keep our minds fresh. We recently took the topic of Possibilities and explored putting this into motion. This short movie was composed by one of our designers, Lee Suetorsak. Soundtrack by Michael Madill (Gr3yman).
“An explosion of architectural little magazines in the 1960s and 1970s instigated a radical transformation in architectural culture with the architecture of the magazines acting as the site of innovation and debate. Clip/Stamp/Fold: The Radical Architecture of Little Magazines 196X – 197X takes stock of seventy little magazines from this period, which were published in over a dozen cities. Coined in the early twentieth century to designate progressive literary journals, the term “little magazine” was remobilized during the 1960s to grapple with the contemporary proliferation of independent architectural periodicals. The terms “little” and “magazine” are not taken at face value. In addition to short-lived radical magazines, Clip/Stamp/Fold includes pamphlets and building instruction manuals along with professional magazines that experienced “moments of littleness,” influenced by the graphics and intellectual concerns of their self-published contemporaries.” – Click/Stamp/Fold
Believe in god or not, the design work Matthew Wahl is doing for Christians is very nice work, and very progressive. Rock on God
