Best of Yanko Design 2011 & Yanko Design Best of Yanko Design 2011 Steve Jobs hired designer Hartmut Esslinger as the modern-day Snow White for his projects code-named after the seven dwarfs. The vision was to infuse Apple products with “born-in-America gene” and DNA inspired by “Hollywood and music, a bit of rebellion and natural sex appeal.” Hartmut’s mantra was simple, “Form follows emotion,” a twist on the maxim that form follows function. Yanko Design respects both these aphorisms but believes that we should not limit creativity within the realms of form, function and emotions; thus we follow Form Beyond Function. 2011 has been a significant year in terms of historical uprisings, financial stability, nature’s rebuke and the loss of visionaries.

Google Fonts hilariously recommends you pair literally everything with Open Sans and Roboto 🙄 In the article, I’m going to cut through the crap and give you a step-by-step plan for creating beautiful, professional-quality font pairings.

Models help us to visualize the problem, to break it down into discrete, manageable units. The value of a specific model is determined within the context of use. -Martin Ryder Some Basics What is design? See also... The Models: Comparitive Summaries
