@JinWook: The original design simply employs a higher degree of visual rhetoric then the re-design. Imagine the chickens with blank stares. It’s as though you took the facial expressions off...

My “real name recommendation” is for screen names, not just profile names, so when someone cites someone (or tries to cite you) they can be found. For example, if I were to reference you from this post, it would read:

Raymond, H. (2013). Re:...

You’re correct, using both names is acceptable, but it looks a little clunky, and makes things more difficult for the reviewer. I have heard academics complain of this first hand. I’ll make the same point again, seeing a real name as a screen...

Hi HARaymond. Welcome to Typophile. Regarding your research, when using Typophile please be sure to cite it properly:

1. Provide an in-text citation every time you cite someone or something, regardless of how many instances there are.

It makes far more sense to post it here so people can follow the progression.

Depends. What is the budget and when is the deadline?

Hi Snika. What have you found on your own so far? You will find you have significantly greater success eliciting assistance with school work if you can demonstrate what you have accomplished first. Good luck, and may the fonts be with you™.

If you Google emotions and typography you’ll get several good hits on the first page. The journal Visible Language might be a good place for you to start as it is a bit easier to read that most peer-reviewed...

Despite my passion for typography, and given my experience in academia, in all honesty, the typographic design of a dissertation, or any paper for that matter, is the absolute last thing I would invest any amount of time and energy into. And...

I don’t believe it to be entirely irrelevant, but I do think it’s the last thing on the to-get-it-done list. Which is usually a pretty big part of finally finishing a dissertation. I haven’t met a single student or faculty member in nearly a...

Times New Roman. As Charles said, it’s for your committee. Publications will have their own guidelines, and will most likely have required formats for submitted manuscripts. Your academic institution will most certainly have guidelines for how your...

The one instance where I chose to ignore the rules was c 1995 in a psychology course. I was instructed to printed single sided, as per the department guidelines. I insisted on printing double sided under the threat of an F, but was shortly followed by...

If you want fancy Times, just go all in and get yourself a copy of Starling. Absolutely beautiful. Great numbers, salient italic, marvelous range weights, incredible back-story… It works on so many levels. Mike Parker kicks ass.

Best to ask legal questions to Lawyers. That said, from a quick Google, it looks as though the work belongs to someone else so digitizing it would in fact be copyright infringement.

There may be an exception for educational contexts,...

@Keith Tricker: Am I understanding this correctly in that it’s meant to replace “The” and not just “Th”?

New Font using Paul Mathis Th Character
Commented on Friday, 2 August 2013 - 6:26pm

@Keith Tricker: As a Th ligature, I quite like the character. Why did you decide to omit any visual reference to the presence of an e? As “The,” it bears such a close visual relationship to “Th” that extending it to “The” is a difficult leap in that...
