Bye for Now
Hi, Tumblr. I’ve neglected you for so long.
I started this blog as a visual bookmarking tool for all the design and art that has caught my eye over the last few years. I started it in school during one all-nighter, around 5AM in the UTC Fine Arts Center three years ago.
I may pick this up again one day. For now, I’ll be writing and sharing links about design over at http://laurahelenwinn-design.tumblr.com/. I hope you follow me there.
Web Typography = Photographic Typography
I’m comparing web fonts to a relevant historical model, the transition from metal to photographic type. This excerpt on photo-type is blowing my mind.
Herbert Spencer, “Tradition: Cliche, Prison, or Basis of Growth?”, 1958.
"Since the invention of the composing machine, the economies of typefounding, as much as improved taste, have forcibly diminished the flow of new type faces."
But photography today provides us again with the opportunity of an almost limitless range of cheaply-produced display lettering variations and distortions…

This is what my last semester of school feels like.

This decade is defined by its regurgitation of past decades. At first glance you think this is a vintage photo, maybe from the 70s. Look more closely; that’s my generation. (The gold glitter pumps give it away.)
"When someone has to tell you to put your brushes down at night and you can’t wait to start again in the morning, that’s how you know you’re doing what you love."
As told to me by Nick Gamarello. (via ovadiaandsons)
By this definition, I definitely loved the original Sims.
I don’t like the way the government handles healthcare/taxes/education/gun control/energy/anything.
But, unless I was downloading the Metallica it usually left me alone on the internet.
