While I have been interested and passionate about letters for some time, my experience in the digital design industry had me hesitate to break that realm and spend time on learning anything but that. I have experience using type and typography principles in many graphic designs, and marvel at the fonts I choose from to do these. But, you can only ignore your passion for so long until you make the time to be able to practice it yourself, and so far (although I have a lot of practice to do) I'm loving it and it feels so right to spend my time this way.Read More
I finally decided to make a custom rubber stamp of my logo. I love how organic it looks and now I have options to play with offline.
Ever see or develop an application where web fonts are loaded conditionally based on a larger screen and assumption of bandwidth? What are your thoughts on using web fonts in a whole mobile site?
Love this font, and the many others that are featured in this month's MyFont's Rising Stars Newsletter. I'm thinking I'm going to treat myself to some new fonts in early 2012 after I finish reading Sitepoint's HTML5 and CSS3 for the Real World, and Designing with Web Standards 3rd Edition.
Cassia is another gorgeous typeface with bazillions of uses!
I suppose this goes without saying, but instead of 100% of the effort and discussion being around agreeing on standards in the new browsers, I feel more progress could be made faster in the world of browser hell if someone could also invent a solution for assisting in upgrading browsers, innovations could be adapted quicker and we could put less resources into so much cross browser testing and effort (and dying inside).
The last time I cared enough to open and test IE6 in VMware Fusion, after installing Windows updates, I saw a red bar at the top of IE6 windows with an alert to update the browser. I thought this was a good idea toward this, but a small effort on the scale of things.
More than talking about why it's a good idea to update, getting the message to those every day users who really have no idea is the real challenge. Until it's 100% (or close) widespread knowledge or easier to do (I like how Wordpress updates so easily...) the numbers will spread out with each upgrade and leave more behind relatively.
