Revised Font Stack | A Way Back Serious efforts are being made to get more typeface choices on the web to enhance web typography. Still, most of us prefer web-safe fonts like: Verdana, Georgia, Times New Roman and Arial. Though choices are limited, yet the number can be increased by exploring other pre-installed fonts. “… font stacks are ultimately design factors, and should be scrutinized as such.” Baskerville, Garamond and Palatino have already been used a few times to create font-stacks that inspire. I’ve selected 10 popular typefaces, serif and sans-serif, each from the survey. MicrosoftTahoma, Verdana, Segoe, sans-serif;Microsoft.com will be (in most cases) rendered in Verdana on Mac, and in Tahoma on Windows. Times New RomanIf we look at the above snapshots taken from Sushi & Robots’ about page, we will find that Palatino and Georgia have different x-height (and weight) than Baskerville and Garamond. I’ve created a font-stack for each typeface while considering the font share table statistics.
VGC Top Ten: Worst Photoshop Disasters in Game Cover Art on VGCh by Stephen Kelley , posted on 07 January 2010 / 153,459 Views Let me begin this VGC Top Ten with a statement: I will not deny that I am not good at using the popular photo editing suite Photoshop, but I know crap covers when I see them. Sometimes the cover art for a game seems to be a total afterthought, and looks as if it gets rushed to save money. As you will see many of these covers suffer from being “shovelware” so it is no surprise that the quality might be sub-par. But others look completely mental, sort of like if scientists trained a gorilla to not only speak in sign language, but to create bad Photoshop images as well.

NCAA March Madness 2003 (Multi) This is just a case of needing to fit the art on a small space, and having to make cuts.
