Siruca Pictograms™, the first Open Source project of Fabrizio Schiavi

Siruca Pictograms™, the first Open Source project of Fabrizio Schiavi
I’d love to design a lot of new picts for my Siruca Pictograms™ but I can’t find the time, so I asked collaboration to some others icon designers. You can participate to the grow of this project if you like. I’ll publish it just below the text in this page with your name and a link to your site. Don’t worry if you don’t know any font editor, you can send me a Freehand, Illustrator or any vectorial file with your design and I’ll fix it. Siruca Pictograms™ is designed to works with Siruca™ font. It’s a stencil font with rounded terminations, and this characteristic must be keeped. To simplify my work, please, draw your pictograms as path with trace —in the example on the left: I need the blu path. Have a good trip!

Periodic Table of Typefaces on the Behance Network Large original English version HERESpanish version HEREPortuguese version HERE PRINTS, SOURCE FILES, and other Periodic Table of Typeface related goodies are available HERE The Periodic Table of Typefaces is obviously in the style of all the thousands of over-sized Periodic Table of Elements posters hanging in schools and homes around the world. This particular table lists 100 of the most popular, influential and notorious typefaces today. As with traditional periodic tables, this table presents the subject matter grouped categorically. The Table of Typefaces groups by families and classes of typefaces: sans-serif, serif, script, blackletter, glyphic, display, grotesque, realist, didone, garalde, geometric, humanist, slab-serif and mixed. Each cell of the table lists the typeface and a one or two character "symbol" (made up by me simply based on logic), the designer, year designed and a ranking of 1 through 100. The sites used to determine the rankings are as follows :

Designing Icons Around Privacy — Some Random Dude The couple months ago a person contacted me to help them design a small icon system for an academic paper. The icons were needed to communicate different online privacy settings when sharing content or information. Communicating levels of privacy is far more complex than the simple nouns or verbs normally symbolized in icons. The set was small enough in number for me to take design them outside of my work hours. The six different forms of sharing were: public (available to all), private (available to no one), shared with your friends, shared with your extended network (friends of friends) shared with groups (classmates, co-workers, etc.) and shared with specific people of your choosing. The first step was to concede that an icon-only solution was a fool’s errand. There were three main challenges in designing the icons. Icons for this purpose should to be small, yet clear since they play a fairly minor role an interface.

Lato: new free open-source sanserif family by Lukasz Dziedzic tyPoland presents its first public typeface release Lato Lato is a sanserif typeface family designed in the Summer 2010 by Warsaw-based designer Łukasz Dziedzic (“Lato” means “Summer” in Polish). In December 2010 the Lato family was published under the open-source Open Font License by his foundry tyPoland, with support from Google. In the last ten or so years, during which Łukasz has been designing type, most of his projects were rooted in a particular design task that he needed to solve. When working on Lato, Łukasz tried to carefully balance some potentially conflicting priorities. The semi-rounded details of the letters give Lato a feeling of warmth, while the strong structure provides stability and seriousness. Lato consists of five weights (plus corresponding italics), including a beautiful hairline style. The entire family is completely free for any desktop and webfont use, and is available from the Google Font Directory at: Enjoy!

Guggenheim Offers Free Books! Way back in the 20th Century, back before one small, viral meme could have more impact and influence than tons of Times op-eds, newspapers still mattered.
