Born is a mediterranean typeface open to new times
Su historia Born es mucho más que una tipografía, es también una historia; La de mi año 2013. La historia de una mudanza a la gran ciudad, el resultado de conocer grandes personas de todas partes del mundo y también sus culturas, de conversaciones en clases, bares, trenes… de compartir momentos, experiencias, conocimientos… Born es el resultado de todas estas vivencias y personas: y ahora yo comparto contigo este pedacito de historia. Born, nacida en la ciudad de Barcelona a primeros del 2013, lleva también el nombre de unos de los barrios más pintorescos de la Barcelona actual, donde a orillas del mar mediterráneo lo antiguo y de toda la vida, las nuevas tendencias y la multiculturalidad se unen y fusionan entre sus estrechas y serpenteantes calles, creando una simbiosis entre tradición y modernidad.

The Future Of CSS Typography Advertisement There has been an increasing and sincere interest in typography on the web over the last few years. Most websites rely on text to convey their messages, so it’s not a surprise that text is treated with utmost care. In this article, we’ll look at some useful techniques and clever effects that use the power of style sheets and some features of the upcoming CSS Text Level 3 specification, which should give Web designers finer control over text. Keep in mind that these new properties and techniques are either new or still in the works, and some of the most popular browsers do not yet support them. A Glance At The Basics One of the most common CSS-related mistakes made by budding Web designers is creating inflexible style sheets that have too many classes and IDs and that are difficult to maintain. Let’s say you want to change the color of the headings in your posts, keeping the other headings on your website in the default color. The Font Property Other Font Properties White Space

Fontello - easy iconic fonts composer Invisible | Otro sitio de WordPress Responsive X11 color name palette Well the funny thing about X11 color names is is unknown who originally compiled the list. There is no continuity either in selected color values or in color names, and many color triplets have multiple names. However, it is very useful to graphic designers. I personally find it equivalent to color systems used in print-albeit with a limited color range. You can use this page like a handy swatch library while writing CSS, or you can load it on your smartphone and use it as a handy reference.

Selecting a color palette is one of them that can be tough if you don’t have the right tools. So where do you start? It all comes down to basic color theory and the color wheel. That same tool that teachers used in school really is the basis for how designers plan and use color in almost every project from the simplest web page to expansive brands with multiple sites and campaigns. Basic Color Theory Scientifically speaking, color is the visual presence of light in different wavelengths and relates to how these wavelengths are absorbed or reflected. The most common way we, as designers identify color is by name. The color wheel is a circle dating to the days of Sir Isaac Newton in the late 1600s. The expanded color wheel, which is the basis for most RGB color pickers in design software, is an extension of the basic wheel. Primary Colors Red, yellow and blue are primary colors. Secondary Colors "People who don't like Comic Sans don't know anything about design" Interview: ahead of his talk at London's V&A museum on Friday, typographer Vincent Connare talks to Dezeen about creating the typeface that designers love to hate. Vincent Connare was one of the early pioneers of digital typeface design, working on fonts for Agfa and Apple in the early 1990s before joining Microsoft, where he designed both the web-friendly Trebuchet font family and the now infamous Comic Sans MS. "It was important at Microsoft to show people how things could be done. The group back then were doing things five years or more ahead of everybody," Connare told Dezeen. Originally designed in 1994 to fill in the speech bubbles in a programme called Microsoft Bob, which featured a cartoon dog that offered tips on how to use a computer, Comic Sans was based on the hand lettering in comic books that Connare had lying around in his office. "I was asked to comment on what I thought of the use of typography in this new application. What the Font? Vincent Connare: No.

Banki z darmowymi zdjęciami | To już na szczęście przeszłość. Systematycznie pojawiają się nowe serwisy zbierające i udostępniające darmowe fotografie, a prezentowany przez nie poziom potrafi pozytywnie zaskoczyć. Od jakiegoś czasu tworzę dla siebie taką podręczną listę miejsc najbardziej wartych uwagi i chętnie się nią z Wami podzielę. Takich spisów powstało już ostatnio kilka, ale żaden nie jest wystarczająco kompleksowy i zredagowany tak, jak bym chciał.
