As you may have noticed, activity on Art Sponge has slowed down over the past few weeks (months?) and the reason for that is simply a lack of effort on my part, faced with other growing priorities and parallel personal projects. Letting the blog die however has never been an option I’ve considered though, and I do intend on reviving things here in some form or another—I just need some help. Without going into many details about how I envision the future of Art Sponge I’d like to make an open call to any Berlin-based creatives interested in working with me to provide new content for the blog. I’m very open to new ideas and would love to discuss new ways of developing this blog!
Geogrotesque Stencil is the newest member of the popular Geogrotesque family, it has been thought as a display typeface, but it goes one step further and tries to solve some of the typical problems of stencils fonts. Most stencil fonts don't have a wide range of weights, Geogrotesque Stencil has a range of 7 weights. Another characteristic of this type of fonts is that the cut usually does not adapt well to the size or the use of different materials, generally it has a wide cut that works well in small sizes but in larger sizes is not very elegant, on the other hand a thin cut does not work in small sizes and affects the reading. Geogrotesque Stencil tries to solve these problems with 3 levels of cut (A, B and C). The thin cut (version A) matches the stem width of the Thin weight, in version B is twice as wide and in the version C is three times more wide. Geogrotesque Stencil | Emtype Foundry

Interview With Khajag Apelian“Type Design Is Not Only About Drawing Letters” Having started his career studying under some of the best typographic minds in the world, Khajag Apelian not only is a talented type and graphic designer, unsurprisingly, but also counts Disney as a client, as well as a number of local and not-for-profit organizations throughout the Middle East. Even more impressive is Khajag’s willingness to take on work that most people would find too challenging. Designing a quality typeface is a daunting task when it’s only in the Latin alphabet.

When we were discussing ideas for new columns this year, I sat back and thought about what I felt was really missing from the web. I kept coming back to the idea of decorating, but I wanted to tackle something more practical and knowledge-based, rather than just inspiration. While trying to shape the column’s focus I was reminded of an important lesson I learned while writing Design*Sponge at Home: photographs should teach and not just describe.

Fading easterly windswell will continue to drop today but should still offer sloppy short-period windslop around waist-chest high levels through the day. A rather small northwest swell is expected to fill in through the day today, topping out around head-high or slightly higher levels overnight into Tuesday. This swell won’t amount to much but should at least keep our boards wet as we wait for the next big swell arriving mid-week. OMaui | Home
