Going back to my first love, I found the greatest type website today (well, greatest that I have ever laid eyes on): http://lineto.com/The%20Fonts/Font%20Categories/Text%20Fonts/Brown/
I found it while digging through stylesheets on ALLDAYEVERYDAY looking for their font
A list of some interesting/fun font websites I have stumbled on:
- http://practicaltypography.com/, seems a bit like an opinionated Strunk & White (not sure if the adjective nullifies the adjective) of course created by a Colphone dude
(Apologies, this is a sparse list, I’m only re-discovering now)
The outside surfaces are painted in various tones of red, to accentuate the contrast with the landscapes; patios and stairs, however, are treated with blue tones, such as sky-blue, indigo, violet, to produce a stronger or weaker contrast with the sky or, on the contrary, an optical effect of blending in with it. The intensity of the colours is also related to the light and show how the combination of these elements can help create a greater illusion of space.

Have been drawn to bold colors lately, especially after browsing Josef Alber’s Interaction of Color

For original print, please contact me (lol).
Or if you can figure out how to get Microsoft Word to recognize Minion Pro, please contact me (this is more pressing).
Ultimately, I think the #1 thing that draws me to someone is their sense of freedom. Freedom and confidence are two different things, in my book. Confidence is overrated—it can be faked, whereas freedom is fearlessness. Freedom is being more or less okay with wherever you’re at, at any given point in your life or your day or your hour, be it really sucky or really great or somewhere in between (and there are a lot of in-betweens.) The single guiding principle that I try to follow, assuming blindly that the rest will fall into place, is to operate squarely in the present. I think it’s one of the most difficult things for anyone to do.

i posted an editorial from business of fashion on my facebook today, primarily because it reflected and balanced many of my thoughts on the current state of fashion week
scrolling down the rest of my facebook feed (yes i think facebook is still relevant for sharing), i noticed my friend posted an nytimes article on michael dunn’s conviction as symbolic of justice being served for trayvon and other members of a voiceless community
it made me question if i was being exceptionally shallow in sharing my (or, someone’s) thoughts on an industry aimed at the 1% while everything else is going on in the world
currently my coworker is sending live updates on the ebola patient zero in america and i can’t help remembering something lucy said: “i don’t keep up with the news, i figure i have limited time, so i’m going to focus on what i’m interested in. i’m just not interested in knowing about world politics”
it’s hard not to admire her candor and confidence. i would say most everyone i’ve met is like that but too afraid to admit
i remember first learning about what my finance friends did at their jobs and marveling at hedge fund managers and their ability to see, interpret, and understand everything that was going on in the world and how it might impact their positions in a company producing products 5 degrees of separation away from any crises at hand. to have such a macro view of the world was glorious. granted it takes a lot of effort and sometimes requires trudging through incredibly dense material (have you read the wiki page for quantum superposition?), but you continue to nurture your little well-rounded circle of knowledge and it feels good, that you’ve improved yourself
sometimes i wonder when the hell i’m ever going to apply my still-limited knowledge of superposition to anything else in my life,
whether i should be rounding myself out by following a variety of news, science, design, music blogs/quora topics/twitters,
or if i’m ever going to figure out that there are things i’m just not interested in
[sidenote: my friend called me out on not using periods when i email casually. i wrote back “i don’t like periods they are too fatalist and permanent”. it was a joke but i just re-read this post and it might be a tad sincere]
i love this song
i remember in high school, i was driving down main street (so apropos for suburbia/college town) with my windows down singing this song
and katie dill walks by, “THAT’S MY SONG!!”
i’m not sure who was happier, her or me
