Better Spam Filtering
Commented on Wednesday, 30 August 2017 - 11:45am

Thanks Derek. I'm working on better filters and tools to keep these chumps out, but I'd love some deputies to help keep eyes on the boards and shut down spam if it happens. Send me a DM if interested?

In meantime, downvote any spam posts as you've been doing - that is an effective method.

Joep, I'd suggest simply adding new images to the thread as a new comment.

How do I create a professional logo?

I'd recommending studying the anatomy of type and how people perceive/read type, so that you're able to evoke characters even while removing certain key elements.

Appreciate the help here, but let's make sure we direct these posts to the Type ID section. The first time a user posts Type ID to the wrong place, they get a personal message directing them to the proper place. Repeat posters may find themselves with...

An honest conversation about Type ID
Commented on Tuesday, 20 December 2016 - 4:19pm

We're listening, and switched it up. The top of the site now defaults to active communities/posts, allowing you to quickly see what's new and jump into a thread. The feed is still there; I'm intrigued to see how we'll figure out how best to use it to...

If you're playing the home game, here's what new in the world of Type ID wrangling:

I've created a few recipes that flag our engine, preventing certain Type ID posts from the Communities area.

Thanks for the suggestions, Thomas. I've made the changes requested above, though reluctant to let go of "Type ID"; but agree on all points - let's see how it plays out.

Type Battle 42: B-R-R-R-R! Winter Type
Commented on Saturday, 10 December 2016 - 3:42pm

Thanks everyone for participating! We'll keep these rolling week to week. Late entries are always accepted!

I'm currently working on getting an email blast sent out to all 200,000+ accounts to spread the word that Typophile is back. We've...

Nicely done, Ofir! Very unique.

Joël, I've fixed permissions to that page. Let me know if you can access it now. //j

We've tried to keep all old links intact. Do you have an example?

After some (mis)trials of other platforms, we came full circle back to Drupal, which is a big reason why we've been able to preserve avatars, passwords, and URLs.

Communities are a lot like Forums, but open up some new possibilities, like...

Thanks Stewf. Glad to see you here again! Yes, bold certainly was the goal. But the feedback is pretty consistent, so I imagine we'll have to address it.

Thanks for the design recommendations. The way I see it, Typophile is a living entity and can evolve. As words can only go so far, would you guys be interested in a new thread devoted to sharing design comps for an improved layout/experience?

Typophile logo
Commented on Tuesday, 12 August 2014 - 1:55am

Unfortunately not a juicy story here- I customized it. The tight crop is a byproduct of wanting to fill the space, and simply typing in the font was not distinctive enough.

And yes, removing the temp marker is long overdue.

Friends don't let friends use Hobo in their apps.

How do you access Private Messages?
Commented on Friday, 18 July 2014 - 3:52pm

You guys are right - we phased out PM years ago, and now go with an email system.

The "Lato Saves Billions" font saves billions and billions of dollars!!!

I like this. If I want to spend more money in my business, I can bump it up to Bold, or even Black. Things get tight, pull it back to Hairline.

Giving quick constructive criticism to people who didn't get the job
Commented on Friday, 28 March 2014 - 12:55pm

In my experience, there's a job out there for designers of all levels of sophistication. If an applicant's work is not at the quality levels that you expect at your organization, there's nothing wrong with letting them know that "it's not a good match...

Absolutely - Have you looked into Robofog?

Peter Bruhn, Rest in Peace
Commented on Sunday, 23 February 2014 - 9:12pm

What a tragedy. Peter was a long-standing member of our community, both at Typophile and type design at large. He'll be terribly missed. Our hearts go out to his wife and kids at this sad, sad time.

Type Battle 42! Draw 3 contemporary additions to Zapf Dingbats
Commented on Monday, 24 February 2014 - 12:15pm

No, you don't have to construct them from Type... But rather just make them look like part of the Zapf family of dingbats.

We'll extend this battle for another week to give more time to people to throw their hats in the ring.

How Joe Clark earned himself the Typophile banhammer
Commented on Thursday, 16 January 2014 - 2:58pm

Joe, you're wrong. Joe Pemberton is not running this place. He's no longer a part of Punchcut, or Typophile, at least not officially.

Bleeping out certain words on Typophile has nothing to do with my religious beliefs, but rather accessibility...

Happy to refund the value of his complete contribution (financial and otherwise) over all the years, totalling exactly $0.
