Speak Up HELLO (AND, WELL, GOODBYE)After nearly seven years of blogging, Speak Up has ceased publication. While this may not be a remarkable amount of time in the world of print and online publishing, the intensity with which we — founders, authors and readers alike — undertook it made it seem as it had been decades. For a thorough description on the reasons to close Speak Up, you may read this post, so as not to take much more space here.

DIY Book Headboard The new apartment was still feeling a little empty and un-lived in so Simon and I set about on this fun little project! It took as about 4 days to put it all together but most that time was spent sourcing the materials so if you were smart about it (and know where to get things – unlike us) then you could do it in a day easy. 1. To start this project I needed a lot of books – I tried yard sales first but ended up finding all my books at thrift stores. Some stores charge way more than others for the books, so I set myself a budget of $1 per book. 2.

Nick Sherman > Senior Degree Project > Ideation Long before the semester even started, I began thinking and writing about what exactly it was that I wanted to do. The first thing I decided to do was make a long list of all the topics I was heavily interested in—or at least enough to be happy spending a semester focusing on. Right from this point I became quite excited about this whole degree project thing. I love to go into ridiculous levels of detail with research and development, and that is something you rarely ever get an opportunity to do.

Typographer's Glossary Serif: Serif's are semi-structural details on the ends of some of the strokes that make up letters and symbols. A typeface that has serifs is called a serif typeface (or seriffed typeface). Some of the main classifications of Serif type are: Blackletter, Venetian, Garalde, Modern, Slab Serif, Transitional, and Informal. Typothèque Every year we make a lim­it­ed edi­tion of the pock­et-size cal­en­dar and sketch­book. And every year we strive to make it better. You may have seen the story of the previous editions. In this year's edition we found a way to include a ribbon bookmark, and clearly separated the sketchbook from the calendar, while keeping the simplicity and strengths of the previous editions. Clear layout in 8 parts, giving each day the same amount of room (and leaving an extra slot for notes).

Over 50 FREE Cleaning and Organizing Printables Are you busy cleaning and organizing this month? I know I am. I use printable pages for many things in my home.

Home of the Universal Font Classification System With so many fonts available on the market today, a simple alphabetical font list can't do the job and font vendors have accordingly devised a variety of ways to help users find the font they are looking for, leveraging the accessibility and power of the Web.

Arial versus Helvetica. How to tell them apart. Is Arial just a poor copy? Seconds Out, Round One Every typeface, like every one of us, has its distinguishing features. You might be forgiven for thinking that some fonts are clones, or identical twins. However, closer inspection reveals subtle differences and nuances that simply escape casual perusal. Something that can really help heighten our sensitivity to those differences is getting out our magnifying glasses and really taking a closer look. If you’ve forgotten to bring your magnifying glass, then don’t fear for the Fontometer is here (we’ll get to that in a moment).
