MAC Rhino Fonts goes West!

Stefan H's picture

Hi all!

This might sound like a trend or something, but I'm also heading out West and yes the city in mind is of course San Francisco. It has been on the agenda for quite some time and now the timing is perfect. It won't be forever, but 6 month will give me (and my family) the opportunity to experience daily life in this fantastic city. And since SF also is a good community regarding type design and graphic design, this will probably lead to new connections one way or the other. Already having some close friends there, I would still like to point out to all you other locals here on typophile, that I look forward to meet some new faces during my stay.

Cheers & long live San Francisco!

I know Typophile isn't meant to be an "employment service", but I would also like to point out that apart from the work I'll bring myself, I'm always open to collaborate on typedesign with some local design companies. Please step forward – I'm all ears!

Salute!

what is going on with San Francisco? :)

San Francisco's rad, that's all. Plus we're less cranky than New Yorkers (although just as mean in our kind, "it's all good" way).

Can't wait for you and the family to arrive, Stefan.
it will be a great 6 months...

Mean? Come on dude.

To me, there are four livable cities in the US: LA, SF, NY, and Nawlins.

I followed Stefan to Stockholm. Stefan follows me here. It's called the circle of life, my friends. Will be great to have you at the local type gatherings, Mr. MAC!

Right on, Timon.

Hrant: try living here for a while.

Stefan: We promise to be nice to you and to pet the rhino. You'll have fun!

I lived in Palo Alto for 2.5 years as a kid. It's what softened me up.

Passive aggression is the new abrasive, baby. New York is so 20th century.

;)

Actually, you may have heard, "It's the cheese".

The cheese can be good! Especially the cheese from Cowgirl Creamery!

My favorite story about the differences between the coasts comes from the 60's. The hippies from the West Coast and the yippies from the East Coast decided to surround the Pentagon, hold hands, and raise it in the air. The East Coast contigent, led by Abbie Hoffman, looked at it as a great media event. The West Coast contigent believed it could be done…
peace

Stefan, it'll be great to have you around. Will you make it to Tiffany's get-together?

________

Have you heard this one?

"You should live in New York, but leave before you become too hardened. And you should live in San Francisco but leave before you get too soft."

I always thought that was about politics, which could be true. But after my return to NYC for TypeCon, I think it's all about the weather.

One thing about New York though, to my relief I didn't see one pair of Birkenstocks or Doc Martens. SF could take a lesson from NYC in the shoe category. =)

"Will you make it to Tiffany’s get-together?"

I'm not sure if I'm even invited? Even less aware if I will get there in time. Our flight leaves August 28th (arrival 1:50 PM local time)... I would be happy to join though ;-)

live in San Francisco but leave before you get too soft.

the way i heard it was live in Northern California... in Baz Lurhman's Everybody's Free (to wear Sunscreen) In which case I think Napa, Redding, Eureka, Dixon, Davis and Sacramento all qualify. (I lived in all of those cities, for a couple months anyway). Never been to SF tho. Maybe since everyone else is doing it...

“Will you make it to Tiffany’s get-together?"

When is this shin-dig happening? And, uh sorry for butting in if its invitation only. :)

Stefan, Terry, see this thread for info on Miss Tiff's shindig: http://typophile.com/node/14465

Miss Tiffany's picture

Stefan, OF COURSE, you'd be invited ... if you were going to be there in time. Somehow I think there will be another shindig in your honor when you arrive.

It isn't really my shindig, so much as I just happen to be visiting.

Miss Tiffany's picture

Tbiddy the shindig is next weekend, the 20th. It isn't invitation only, but you (whomever) need to get on the list (found at the node listed above) to receive instructions.

Everyone in SF Bay Area permanently or visiting on August 20 - join the type event planning Yahoo Group... everyone is invited, but you have to be on the list to get all the scoop.

There will be more events in the future - yeah, let's honor the arrival of Stefan and Terry with a September get-together.

Tiffany,

Thanks for the invitation. I'll be missing the first gathering though, but stay ready for the September dito!

Cheers
