This family was inspired from the set of font faces used in Amsterdam by Daniel Elzevir to print the famous “Tractatus de corde...” the study on earth anatomy by Richard Lower, in 1669. The punch cutter was the famous Dutch Kristoffel Van Dijk. In our two styles (Normal & Italic), font faces, kernings and spaces are scrupulously the same as in the original. This Pro font covers Western, Eastern and Central European languages (including Celtic), Baltic and Turkish, with standard and “long s” ligatures in each of the two styles. 1669 Elzevir

Robust but assertively warm, it recalls and references the virtues of early classical printing types but presents a distinctly contemporary look. With its even text flow it works very well for long texts. Sina

Design*Sponge | Your home for all things Design. Home Tours, DIY Project, City Guides, Shopping Guides, Before & Afters and much moreThis week’s radio show was a reader request: tips for beating procrastination and being more productive. I think it’s safe to say that all of us struggle with productivity, time-management and procrastination at one point or another. While most of us know how to “get things done” in the deadline sense of the of the word, most us also want to find a way to avoid those last-minute situations and get work done on a schedule that feels calmer and more in control.

Anodyne Anodyne is a warm and weathered all-caps font from Yellow Design Studio with hand-printed texture and unique shadow options. Features include four distress variations for each letter and at least two for every other character. Double-letter ligatures add realism by eliminating identical texture in adjacent characters. Layering regular and shadow versions allows independent control of the shadow color. Switch between lower-case and capital letters to change texture, or use opentype contextual alternates for additional, extra-distressed variations. Anodyne has an extended character set for multiple language support.

We have some bittersweet news today. After over four great years of design and blogging at SeeSaw, we have decided to go our separate ways and explore new opportunities. This is a big change, but we're excited for what's in store. We have loved sharing our inspiration here, and will always be grateful for the connections we've made with all of you. A huge thanks to our clients, readers and sponsors for the support over the years.

Chuck Blakeman / Traditional Branding Isn’t for Small Business As we start out, we take cues from Giant Corporation, Inc. that we should develop cool logos, fancy brochures, zippy websites, and catchy copy. But this is a waste of time and money for a lot of small businesses and a huge misdirection of focus. There is a better way for most of us. A janitorial supply company wrote a response in another blog promoting all this fancy “branding” (to which this blog is a response):
Urbana is a contemporary, naturally condensed sans-serif typeface inspired by the traditional lettering found in Colombian city buses. A mixture of influences reminiscent of modernism, hand lettering, cluttered spaces and improvisation are the source of its unique forms. Urbana was designed to save space and catch the reader’s attention while keeping a high legibility in virtually all situations. More… Urbana
