Really nice, straightforward case study of the newly released ngenworks rebrand.
The real problem with free fonts, or how to use free fonts intelligently. Great insight here.
It’s an adorable, educational, interactive book (preview?) about typography, from A to Z. Did I mention it’s adorable? Seriously.
Nerd request: PHP + CSS + Typography
I’m in the process of designing a custom theme for this blog and my personal site, and I have a really weird crazy idea related to making some fun, fancy, decorative initial caps styles for my blog posts.
The kicker is, I don’t think I want to replace the actual first letter of the paragraph with my decorative initial letter, I just want to kinda repeat it, graphically. Why? Because the way I want to treat them would just be for visual interest, and it would be pretty hard to read if I didn’t repeat the first letter in normal text. Does that even count as an initial cap?
So I wouldn’t be able to simply use the CSS first-letter pseudo element. To do this, I think I’d need to have a php (or something) script extract the first letter of the post so I could repeat it, then treat the extra letter graphically through CSS. Is this technically possible, or am I crazy?
