I was exploring Explore GitHub when the title of Adam Stacoviak and Wynn Netherland‘s auditory offering, The Changelog Podcast, caught my eye. I saw, with great delight, that the guest of Episode 0.7.4 was Micah Rich from The League of Moveable Type speaking about open source typography.
- Typophile.com is a must-visit site for anyone fascinated with fonts.
- Be sure to check out Lettercase, Micah’s minimalist font manager.
- During the podcast, Micha mentioned that he was in awe of the work of Jonathan Hoefler and Tobias Frere-Jones. Go to Typography.com and you can certainly see why he’s impressed.
Thanks to a post from nedwin over at Hacker News, I
could spend have spent hours playing with Logoswipe. I read the tagline: “You don’t need a logo, you need a type face,” and I was hooked.
If you really a few hours to while away, try this: make a logoswipe and look at the resulting URL, something like http://logoswipe.com/logo/1702. Change the number at the end. Type a lower number–for example, in this case something like 1602–in its place and you’ll see logos that others have made. Fonterrific!
