Just stumbled upon this funny typography game for typo geeks Kern Type, a kerning game. You have to move the inner letters (kerning) untill the whole word is perfectly kerned. Use your mouse or the arrow keys or your fingers on the iPad. I reached an overall score of 97, and you?
PS: You know what’s the result of bad kerning? It’s called keming ;)
One of the things I really like in the field of graphic design is typografy. What is even better, is handmade typografy! I came across this beautiful project via Little Paper Planes (on Facebook) called “‘The’ Project”. Robb Ogle from houndofthe.com already has some impressive font designs in his portfolio, but he used wordmarks from a private stock of predigital lettering scoured from low resolution archives and turn it into clean, straigh bezier curves. He only extracted the word ‘the’, hence the name of the project for use by today’s graphic designers who appreciate the wonky shapes of yesteryear. That’s me!
Make sure you go have a look over at the special website he created for this project www.thetheproject.com!
Well, folowing the business cards of Kristine earlier this week it is now time for my own cards. I wrote a post about the production a while ago and maybe it’s just me, but designing and producing your own business cards is really satisfying. The wordmark has been set using a medium bold Helvetica (24 and 18 pts) and the information beneath it was set using a Bookman Old Style 10 on 12 pts. I have to be honest… The cards were long finished, but I haven’t had the time to take some decent pictures of them. Untill I shot Kristine’s that is! Go click below and enjoy.
It’s totaly not new, but I found this again a while ago and just had to share it here…
