How to Use FF Chartwell Primarily suitable for Adobe Creative Suite, FF Chartwell for print uses OpenType ligatures to transform strings of numbers automatically into charts. The data remains in a text box, allowing for easy updates and styling. It’s really simple to use; you just type a series of numbers like: ‘10+13+37+40’, turn on Stylistic Alternates or Stylistic Set 1 and a graph is automatically created. To help get you started using FF Chartwell we’ve created this video tutorial and here are some simple steps: ONE — Firstly always make sure the letter spacing is set to “0” (zero) TWO — Using the values 0-100, type the values, then use “+” to combine them into one chart. THREE — Want to bring a bit of color to your work? FOUR — Turn on Stylistic Alternates or Stylistic Set 1 and enjoy! To see the original data all you need to do is turn off Stylistic Set or Stylistic Alternates.

ZoomHub · Share and view high-resolution images effortlessly Map Maker - Desktop Mapping FatFonts FatFonts is a graphical technique conceived and developed by Miguel Nacenta, Uta Hinrichs, and Sheelagh Carpendale. The FatFonts technique is based on a new type of numeric typeface designed for visualization purposes that bridge the gap between numeric and visual representations. FatFonts are based on Indo-arabic numerals but, unlike regular numeric typefaces, the amount of ink (dark pixels) used for each digit is proportional to its quantitative value. This enables accurate reading of the numerical data while preserving an overall visual context. How it works Fatfonts are designed so that the amount of dark pixels in a numeral character is proportional to the number it represents. This proportionality of ink is the main property of FatFonts. Multi-level Digits With the examples above you can only represent numbers from 0 (blank fatfont) to 9. The image above represents a 4-digit FatFont number 4,895. The number of the left shows you the circle that contains each FatFont digit. Miguta

Officina Creative Inc | Graphic Design Studio About the Project — This is a personal project, experimenting with web typography based on vintage type samples — old advertisements, packaging, hotel matchbooks, postcards, etc — and recreating them for the web. In my opinion, typography and design have gotten boring as we adopt the “less is more” philosophy. I’ve always been a fan of “more is more” and there is something captivating about the way we used to arrange our type, sometimes bordering on incoherent and disorderly — but undeniably interesting and beautiful in its own right. This quote by Bethany Heck in an essay on New Traditionalism sums it up well: "Vintage designs have reminded designers to take risks, to mix more typefacesand break more rules.” Well, who isn’t interested in risk-taking and rule-breaking, especially in the usually non-life-threatening realm of design?

20+ Tools to Create Your Own Infographics A picture is worth a thousand words – based on this, infographics would carry hundreds of thousands of words, yet if you let a reader choose between a full-length 1000-word article and an infographic that needs a few scroll-downs, they’d probably prefer absorbing information straight from the infographic.
