The Owl is a very wise bird; and once, long ago, when the first oak sprouted in the forest, she called all the other Birds together and said to them, “You see this tiny tree? If you take my advice, you will destroy it now when it is small: for when it grows big, the mistletoe will appear upon it, from which birdlime will be prepared for your destruction.” Again, when the first flax was sown, she said to them, “Go and eat up that seed, for it is the seed of the flax, out of which men will one day make nets to catch you.” Once more, when she saw the first archer, she warned the Birds that he was their deadly enemy, who would wing his arrows with their own feathers and shoot them. But they took no notice of what she said: in fact, they thought she was rather mad, and laughed at her. When, however, everything turned out as she had foretold, they changed their minds and conceived a great respect for her wisdom.

Responsive Type, part 3: Headers and hiearchy This third instalment of this basic introduction to responsive typography focuses on how best to use size, contrast and style changes to create a strong typographic hierarchy. Our base font has been defined. So far, so good – but what about the rest? Type hierarchies don’t just make themselves. Butterick’s Practical Typography This is a bold claim, but I stand be­hind it: if you learn and fol­low these five ty­pog­ra­phy rules, you will be a bet­ter ty­pog­ra­pher than 95% of pro­fes­sional writ­ers and 70% of pro­fes­sional de­sign­ers. (The rest of this book will raise you to the 99th per­centile in both categories.) All it takes is ten min­utes—five min­utes to read these rules once, then five min­utes to read them again.

HD Index Painting in Photoshop Building off from last post's topic about Pixel Purism; how it's more important where you arrived than how you got there. I wanted to share with you a method I've been developing with my environment work on Chasm for turning Photoshop into the most powerful pixel art tool using what I'm calling "HD index painting". I've shown it to a number of people and each time the reception has been through the roof. If you're unsure what index painting is, then I recommend you read the previous blog post as it defines it as well as several other terms that we will be expanding upon here.
