Letters & Stone


I Love Typography has an absolutely fascinating feature on Fergus Wessel. Fergus is a letter cutter, and his work can be seen all over the UK in memorials and places like St Paul’s Cathedral.

2012 Presidential Campaign Logos

For those of you interested in both design and US politics, SVA Close Up has published a discussion of the campaign logos of Obama and the Republican nominees. Steven Heller, Debbie Millman and Alice Twemlow analyze the five logos, provide their opinions and make some suggestions.

Device-Agnostic Approach To Responsive Web Design


Smashing Magazine has a great article on a device-agnostic approach to responsive web design up. Author Thierry Koblentz says, “This is a different take on Responsive Web design. This article discusses how we can better embrace what the Web is about by ignoring the big elephant in the room; that is, how we can rely on media queries and breakpoints without any concern for devices.”

Typekit Adds Inscriptional Typefaces From Adobe


Typekit has announced the addition of some inscriptional typefaces from Adobe to their library (it makes sense that we’d see these kind of announcements more often, given that Adobe now owns Typekit). These could make for some interesting designs for users who are going for, say, a stonecut-themed web design (see the first feature in this article for ideas!). The new additions are Trajan Sans and Lithos.

Freebie: Chat UI PSD

This edition’s featured freebie is a cool chat UI PSD. This UI template could be used for a number of features, such as a private message system similar to Twitter’s direct messages, in addition to actual chat. Check it out at 365psd!
