Typography for Lawyers

May 11th, 2009 · 1 Comment

I stumbled across this site while doing some typography research. At first I kinda chuckled (have you ever seen a lawyer’s handwriting?) but upon closer inspection, I found it to be a very clear, well-written piece of information. Very useful not only for lawyers, but for any professional not already familiar with typography and communication […]

“The Alchemists” becomes “Art & Copy”

March 24th, 2009 · 1 Comment

I posted about this film over a year ago (here), when it was called “The Alchemists,” wondering if anyone knew if it had a release date… and then I forgot all about it. I see now it has been renamed to “Art & Copy” (and maybe re-edited? judging from a comparison of the two trailers) […]

From its extraction through sale, use and disposal, all the stuff in our lives affects communities at home and abroad, yet most of this is hidden from view. The Story of Stuff is a 20-minute, fast-paced, fact-filled look at the underside of our production and consumption patterns. […]

Pray

August 29th, 2006 · Comments Off

Back in 1997, Wired ran a cover story about Apple’s demise, with only the word “Pray” set above an Apple logo surrounded by thorny wires. They had become a bloated, mis-led giant with little perspective of their customers, and they were sinking. For devoted Apple fans, it was depressing. Read it here. Well, now it […]

Air Max 360: Design Process commentary from the designer

March 3rd, 2006 · Comments Off

Hear The Story Saw these in the store the other day for $229, put them back on the shelf and hurried out as quickly as possible. After watching the “Hear The Story” feature, I may go back and try them on… now – how can I justify these as part of my half-marathon goal?

August 9th, 2005 · Comments Off

The scale of these two projects is very different, but by comparing them side-by-side as design exercises, they highlight the opportunity for success through innovation & execution of a vision. In Apple’s case, they have (as they always seem to), in NASA’s case, they havn’t (as they always seem to). Also, this comparison further shows […]

Who Needs a Copywriter?

July 20th, 2005 · Comments Off

Noun is the industry leader of leading-edge architectures. We will step up our ability to engage without reducing our capability to visualize. If all of this seems improbable to you, that’s because it is! What does it really mean to optimize “intra-efficiently”? Imagine a combination of XSL and XSLT.
