To carry on the topic of fonts and those fun typefaces, it dawned on me that maybe not everyone understands not only the concept of all these different fonts, but choosing the right one (I carefully chose the one that you are reading this in), when do you italics, bold and blah blah blah. Weeeellllllll, for those of you who are more visual than others (and the rest who enjoy a good spoof on these silly typefaces) enjoy this video!
In carrying on the timeless tradition (mostly from one of my favorite NYC radio stations TheQ) here is the first of two posts, a twofer if you will. This week’s topic is fonts, especially those that most designers not only despise but openly make fun of. This link has a rundown of the top most fonts that we cringe when we see. Though with every computer I come across and new program I download there they are, waiting with that smug look on their faces saying “Here I am. Use me!” I shudder just thinking about Comic Sans….
I am finally putting the finishing touches on this site, and as it comes to “an end” it occurs on the end of another year of….me. My birthday is tomorrow. This was an interesting having to go back and catalog a lot of my work as I look back at another year that has passed, reminiscing on specifics of certain projects, the clients and what I had to go through to complete them. There is an early episode of Seinfeld that jokes about this. Is it a coincidence? Is it big, small….fun-sized?? Regardless, here is to another post, another website and another year….cheers!
In trying to make an effort to stay focused and keep myself engaged in all things social media, I thought I would share an article I read this morning that although I’m not 100% sure I believe (or even 10%!) but it was really well written and I am going to need all the luck I can get in the next 3-4 months.
