Oh hello everyone!
Are you in a good mood? We do hope so.
If not, we hope to have improved upon that issue by the end of this post.
Do you, like us, have a deep unexplainable love for fonts? Well then, get yourself to TYPE CONNECTION, A typographic dating game …
Type Connection is a game that helps you learn how to pair typefaces.
Start by choosing a typeface to pair. Like a conventional dating website,
Type Connection presents you with potential “dates” for each main character—
without the misleading profile photos and commitment-phobes. The game
features well-known, workhorse typefaces and portrays each as a character
searching for love. You are the matchmaker. You decide what kind of match
to look for by choosing among several strategies for combining typefaces.
Along the way, you explore typographic terminology, type history, and more.
By playing Type Connection, you deepen your own connection with type.
It is fun and unbelievably cute!
Number TwoRegina Spektor‘s new album What we Saw from the Cheap Seats is out next week … “There are lots of different places I like to go to explore. I’ve written a straight-up jazz standard type song, and I’ve written a country song, if produced in a colour-by-numbers sort of way. I’m not really interested in having a specific genre, though. I don’t believe people have to commit to anything artistically.”
We mentioned last week about Moonrise Kingdom, well it’s out TODAY! and the cinema seats have been booked. Hooray!
Get into the Moonrise Kingdom tunes over at 8tracks –
“It is the summer of 1965 on the Island of New Penzance. Music Supervisor Randall Poster has curated a selection of some of the favorite songs of the denizens of the island, all characters in Wes Anderson’s new film, Moonrise Kingdom“
What a cool idea.
We hope that has helped to give you that Friday feeling
Handsome and Pretty
