The best laid plans… Here are my pieces corresponding to May 16, 17 and 18. Following theAlphabet series, I present you the letters “L”, “M”, and “N”…
Continuing my tour of typefaces through the alphabet, here are my pieces corresponding to J and K.
Not really bowled over with this piece, but I reached my time limit, so here we are.
In case an apology needs to be made I promised myself I wasn’t going to use helvetica for this. That said, I didn’t set out to the typeface I ended up using. How did this happen? I started looking at the different looks of each “h” typeface, and I noticed how much hobo’s “h” looked … Read more
I learned two things working on this “g” piece. 1) I have a really sucky selection of “g” fonts on my Windows machine. And 2) I really like the double storey “g” over its single storey brethren. I also scoured the interwebs trying to find out why this letter changes from double to single as … Read more
Foiled again! The lack of variety in my “f” fonts on my PC was pretty surprising. Don’t get me wrong. There are some sturdy workhorses there– stuff like Futura, Folio, Franklin Gothic.

I saw Eurostile’s lowercase “e” and it reminded of some of those unwieldy, heavy door handles/pulls that … Read more
For some reason, my “d” font choices are somewhat limited on my PC, which is my main workhorse, so I had to look at things a bit differently. I picked this font– which I’m Ivory soap sure is one of those free fonts that some (a lot?) of us have accumulated over the years. Its … Read more
Picking which font NOT to focus on for the letter “c” was easy. I knew from the get-go I didn’t want to go with the much-maligned Comic Sans. Not because I didn’t like the font (which, being a “recovering” comic book geek, I don’t particularly care for anyway). It just didn’t move me creatively for … Read more
So, this is what I got for today. No fancy intros, no purple-prosed laden explanations. (And, yes, I’m well aware there might be some irony at play tonight). Enjoy!
