This short film, “Experiment” by ZoĆ© Berton-Bojko and Susana Covo Perez that I stumbled on while digging around on Vimeo is fully of fun and delightfully weird little moments and beautiful detail.

  • Google Fonts’ new Fonts Knowledge site looks like the beginnings of a valuable source of information for novice type users and experts alike.
  • I have a soft spot for Garamond-like type families and modern interpretations of that style of classical book type. Chassi from R-Typography is no exception.
  • Sharpie Pro is exactly what you might think. It’s especially great looking when tracked tightly in all caps. I wish it had a few more alternates for vowels, but I still dig it.
  • A Black Box for the world. What an amazing, if not sorely needed project.
  • Notes on the Vinyl Boom. Crockett’s math on what an indie artist might actually make from sales isn’t complete, but perhaps the most important consideration is the environmental impact.
  • The full story of The New Pornorgrapher’s original masterpiece, Mass Romantic.
  • Sounding the Sumburgh Foghorn seems overly complex but I’m glad there’s someone who took an interest in preserving its legacy and operation.
  • What Wipes in Star Wars Teach Us About Interface Design and the brain. Really interesting observations in this article from Matt Webb.
  • Counting down the days to The Book of Boba Fett.
  • This kind of hacking I can get behind. Well done.
  • Pantone Color of the Year: Very Peri.
