New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
Until now I wasn't aware there was this blog feature in typophile.
My primary typogrphic concern at the moment is legibility of typefaces for signage. I'll post some observations and findings here as things progress.
I am new to this place, so let me do some catch-up.
Set 01 was mostly illustration with the exception of the “Designerd” tee. We designed this one for Matthew to wear at a speaking engagement and I just thought that it was really best suited for production and addition to the Chop Shop line.
this one is also available for women folk in American Apparel girly sizes.
Coming around August 1st will be Chop Shop’s second release of tees. This time around we will be featuring more illustration based designs as with Set 01. One being another Tron based theme this time featuring the antagonist in red, an olde style illustration celebrating Sir Freelancelot and this TYPE based tee advertising a designerd’s most attractive asset… his fonts. This design doesn’t leave the women folk out in the cold either with “Boys Want My Fonts” also in the offering.
so far the iPhone lives up to its hype, including posting to community sites from mobile Safari.
After a day I, m typing as fast as I could on the blackjack with about the same error rate. The qwerty is actually as large as the blackjack, but the lack of tactile feedbackdoes have an impact.
More later i'm sure.
anybody knows the what the name of the classic ms dos error typeface????
Yay. My company is sending me up to Seattle, Aug. 1-3. I signed up for 2 workshops on the 2nd.
Looking forward to seeing "Helvetica" and meeting new creatives.
Are there any of you who'd like to meet up w/me?
I have never blogged before, so this is all sort of new and fuzzy to me.
I am a layout and design artist, on-the-job trained at a small newspaper. They didn't pay worth spit, but I received an invaluable education. I'd had a smattering of very limited experience with QuarkXpress 6.0. The paper had just converted from QuarkXpress to InDesign. The day I submitted a despiration job application (part-time clerk typist), they'd lost a graphic designer. I was called; I was interviewed; I was hired (a despiration hire on their part); I was trained. By week two, I was designing full page, full color ads. Baptism with fire on a newspaper printing schedule, no doubt, but one that helped me to finally decide what I want to be when I grow up.
As in ‘not’ type-related: I am currently building a kitchen unit for my other place in Amsterdam. Construction of the cabinets is finished, painting them as well. Next phase: getting the tops (they are being done by a stonemason) and installing it. Probably after the summer vacation, on account of floor insulation that will be done somewhere in the second half of August.
Working with your hands makes a nice change from sitting in front of a computerscreen. : )
How can I measure the rendering speed of different fonts? Is there any tool or website link, I can study?
i was wondering whats the name of this font is
that used in LIVE CONCERT.
Especially, if you look at "C","R","S","G",
C is not fully round shape.G is not there but there is no tail under Spur of the letter G.
I really would like know what font they used. i am pretty sure its new type that its been created by someone.
thank you very much for your help!
p.s its bit similar to franklin gothic. but not exact.
i need to know exact name of this font type.
I am having a hard time recognizing the Typeface of Red Cross. Pls share the knowledge A.S.A.P. Thanks!
Imagine my surprise when, while browsing for comforters at Bed Bath & Beyond, I came across this: a serif drapery rod!
Typophile is made possible through the generosity of sponsors and efforts of volunteers, including time invested by us at Punchcut. We squeak time in on Typophile as often as we can without compromising client commitments.
Typophile gets a lot of traffic. We're seeing about 200,000 unique visitors every month, with actual page "hits" coming in around 300,000 per day. Google likes us. 20,000 Typophile users are depending on us. So we don't take any site changes lightly.
On occasion we have to take the site down for maintenance upgrades. When we do, our general approach is to minimize downtime so that the community can keep moving, discussing and collaborating.
Here are two examples, I can not seem to find their names.
It's so easy to end up with this
I'd just like to point out that I am not responsible for this :-)
So, I'm thinking about giving blogging a go. Per the nature of this site, I'll post on type design and typography, along with other matters related to graphic design. This won't be too constraining since these topics tend to occupy much of my time anyway.
This Day in Type has teamed up with Campfire T-Shirts to provide five lucky typographers with the T-Shirt of their choice. To be entered to win, all you have to do is submit a date to This Day in Type for July 1-31. I will be drawing a name for each week, so each person can enter up to five times. This is my way of saying thank you to the people who have helped make the site better through their contributions!
This is my first blog entry on indesign and would like to make you all there aware that I have been in the publishing business since 1988 and have worked from the versions 1 to the latest available in the industry i.e. CS3.
The publishing industry seems to make a landmark with this release of CS3 bridging the gap between the CS3 print users as well as other media's (web and mobile). Truly would be talking more about Indesign which is my favourite (being a head of design) I really feel that Indesign CS3 has made a great and overide change of how we look at the publishing softwares which were mere boxes and lines in their initial stages.
Will be adding more on Indesign CS3 as it is my first blog on Indesign CS3 and this is just an intro to the mastering INDESIGN CS3.
Before a few months involved with other personals projects I've decided to resume benedicta's project. I hope to advance it in this follow months. You contributions will be always welcomed!
