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:
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.
I was this close “>” to getting them Air Jordan XI “Playoffs” aka. BREDs during yesterday’s release by Nike. But, no cookie for me. It would’ve been my very first Js. For real.
I never got into the AJ game as I couldn’t afford it going to school. That, and Js won’t do well in Track & Field, and Baseball. As for Basketball back in High School & College, I think the most expensive shoes I’ve worn were them CB34s haha. The price just didn’t justify what I was into during the time; or what I needed more of. A wise friend told me once, trying to put things into perspective cost-wise, “you know how many Del Taco soft tacos you can get with that?“1 =)
