Barrett-Forrest explains the variations between early serif fonts such as Caslon and Baskerville and how they evolved into modern sans serif fonts such as Futura and Helvetica.

Founded by a Bangladeshi architect named Mohammed Rezwan in 2008, the nonprofit runs a fleet of almost a hundred boats that offer education to kids and their parents, as well as access to libraries, health care, and information about agriculture and financial management. {H/t Designboom] MSF - Pastillas contra el dolor ajeno.

This Vending Machine Sells Fresh Salads Instead Of Junk Food

Dunkin Donuts, Popeyes, McDonalds, and other chains ring the hallway.
