future

Hi,

I have recently graduated from university, studying Graphic Design. I have created a blog with some of my designs to exhibit some of my skills.

Here is my blog: munyachidakwa.wordpress.com

I would love for some feedback on my work. I am open to any form of criticism.

I thank you for taking time to read this

Hello! I've got a bit of dilemma on my hands. I'm currently the design editor of my university's student newspaper and for April 1st we're doing a joke issue with the theme "time warp." Each page will be from a certain period in time, with the first page being the beginning of the universe (the leading cover choice right now is a blank page) and the last page will the end of it. All pages will be themed, with some modeled after illuminated manuscripts and others 1920s newspapers, for example.

Now, I'm incredibly excited for this project, but the fonts have got me tripped up, specifically at the very beginning (cavemen and the discovery of fire) and the end (the far, far future). Anything after the start of movable type I'm fine with, obviously, because I can start to use Garamond and the like. But I'd like some ideas for the type before typography and into the future.

I'm very curious to hear the opinions of you insightful typophiles on the future of penmanship and the art of the cursive hand. I think there is probably consensus that the *art* of writing by hand as a practical skill is in decline. This is nothing new though--even Cicero complained that his contemporaries' handwriting was a complete mess. At the same time, it might be too narrow to judge today's handwriting by 19th century standards in which penmanship conveyed education, social status, etc.

I'm also interested in cursive handwriting's influence--past, present, and future--on printed and digital media.

So in a nutshell, where do you think we are headed? Has cursive died? Will it gradually evolve?

Can anyone figure this one out? Thanks. I'm looking for the dubNation part.
