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!

New to Typophile. Wondering about attending TypeCon in August and meeting up with other creatives. Have only been to Seattle twice. Looking forward to meeting you.
Hello everyone :)
I been looking for quite a while now for a typeface called Regaliz by Ipsum planet....
This one is a superb type and I am really looking forward to catch it up :)
This font can be downloaded for free from "http://www.neo2.es/" the website of the Spanish fashion magazine, but a download code is require to obtain the type, this code was given in their magazine number 47 (over two years ago) and love to know if some one around has it and wants if it wants to share it with me :)
In return I'll give the codes I got for downloading types from this website (neo2) and as well some cool types I got :)
Best regards, thanks.
My career began in 1942 as an apprentice in the composing room. Because of WWII I was able to get several jobs; working at the College Press under the tutiledge of Richard Hoffman and a night job at LA Type casting the first arrival of Times Roman.
Because of the pursuit of the alphabet it led to working with some of the best in the busines: Saul Bass, Herb Rosenthal and Charles Eames. My commercial career began in the early 1960's with the revival of Jugenstill fonts and becoming an agent for Bertold.
I was able to bring on the photolettering market many original design under the name of Facsimile Fonts and later FotoStar International.
Haven't been around here for some time, but the blog feature is absolutely brilliant. Hope I just didn't uncover I long it has actually been...
How do you set extended titles? for example: 'I hammered my thumb and went aaah!'. If i wanted to set 'I hammered my thumb', as the main title and then 'and went aaah!', as a sub-title, how would I do it? Can I set the main title as small caps and then the sub-title as italics in parenthesis? Can anyone help, or recommend a good reference source?
SXSW has posted the audio from a panel discussion titled Web Typography Sucks. Apropos.
I'm doing a typography study and I need to contact Adrian Frutiger.
Don't you know where to get contact to him? Thank you for private response.

Not sure if anyone is using it, but I've updated the Firefox Greasemonkey script that adds a forum menu to each page of Typophile. It should now work with the new design.
What is it?
Greasemonkey is an extension for firefox that allows user-scripts to be run on specific websites. You can get it here: www.greasespot.net
Typophile Forum Menu is a user script for Greasemonkey that adds a simple forum menu to each page of Typophile, making it marginally easier to navigate. You can get it here: typophile-menu.user.js
Yeah, and I just shut down the other one. Maybe later, folks (but don’t hold your breath).
After another long night, I think we've got the load averages on the server back to normal.
maThe last sunday was father's day in AArgentina and my son comes with a gift. A complete hand drawn alphabet to be digitized. The alphabet was in a A4 page. He is 11 years old.

If you really care...
I saw the SF premier of Helvetica last night and I had to run out during the Q&A to catch the last Bart train, but the question I wanted to ask Gary was, at what point in the making of [[Helvetica]] (the film) did he realize this was not a film about a typeface, but about a commentary about the design and cultural landscape we live in (and that we are products of)? His film is really, really much more than I expected it to be. I thought it was going to be much more academic and historic. It was so much more than that. Helvetica is so much more than a typeface, it's a cultural landmark and Gary Hustwit's film put it into great context.

Today marks Unzipped’s first anniversary. Exactly one year ago I posted my first three entries, after having done a test run with the premiere of my movie poster critiques the day before. Now, one year later, I am pleased to announce a new era in the existence of this blog – Unzipped will switch to (mostly) English.
The initial plan – as explained in my introductory post – was to write in Dutch, with occasionally English and French translations. However it soon became obvious that I couldn’t free up enough time to do these translations. It is for that exact same reason that I discontinued my English tutorials on The FontFeed.
Kudos to Kate Moss for having her own font... Every super model should have her/his own typeface, just as every one-person "celebrity brand" should. But, it shouldn't be released to the public when the design feels like a draft version.
I can imagine the brand brief describing the need for a typeface that matches Moss' anemic and unnatural look, in which case, maybe this design fits the brief. There are just too many problems to mention, and this post would become a mean-spirited critique. See it for yourself -- it just doesn't hold up even under the most basic scrutiny.
Brand New School and Publicis recently rocked the automobile ad landscape with some serious typo-mojo with their "The Car that Reads the Road" campaign for Toyota. The ads were shot in New Zealand (what isn't shot there these days?) and ran in Australia.

The great game of Ice Hockey is played on a Rink internationally that is 30 meters wide by 60 meters long. In North America the rink size is approximately 200 feet long by 85 feet wide. Older rinks like the old Boston Garden were smaller and not consistent between buildings. This makes the international rink wider by approximately 15 feet.
These narrow NA rinks make for a more congested ice surface. The international surface makes for a more exciting game and for the player it provides more room for an attacking style of play.
