Simple, and nicely blended. I always rewatch this movie to refuel the travel bug, get inspiration, and have a nice, quality relax-time with visuals.
I set out to using free, open-source web fonts for a particular project lately. I’ve had bookmarked some articles a while back with some pretty cool combinations that will help the Design process move a long a bit faster. To name a few:
- Design Shack’s 10 Great Google Font Combinations You Can Copy
- Daniel Eden’s Just my type
In those articles where screenshots of sample combinations. I just saved them to my local drive for comparison. If you don’t have Adobe Lightroom (for its Survey or Compare views) or Adobe Bridge (for its Thumbnail view) but are on OS X, you can use Preview to compare the stills.
Diggin’ the typography design on these shirts from Undefeated’s Holiday line.
I’ve been doing some experimentation with Adobe Edge this past week since it’s preview release on Monday. I figure to have a break, and do some exercises with Adobe Illustrator. Hence, the above: “ill-ocano”.
The Ilocano or Ilokano people are the third largest Filipino ethnolinguistic group. Aside from being referred to as Ilocanos, from “i”-from, and “looc”-bay, they also refer to themselves as Samtoy, from the Ilocano phrase “sao mi ditoy”, meaning ‘our language here.’ The word “Ilocano” came from the word “Iloco” or “Yloco.“1
Yes, it looks like the spelling is off, but the explanation of why it is so and the exercise is right after the jump.
