Adding a little organic aesthetic to your usual selection of san-serifs. This list is pretty top notch and definitely good for @font-face as well as other uses.
For the web designer whose dummy copy isn’t thug enough. If your client’s got a sense of humor, I’d highly recommend this little nugget of AWESOMESS. Fo’ shizzle.
This "Projeqt" is a very interesting addition to the “portfolio site” mix. I signed up for the beta, and if this is as good as I think it is, I might roll this into a future website redesign. But for now, I gotta get something up to replace this.
Check out these awesome CSS3 experiments in web design by Simurai. Best use of the twitter api ever! Read the whole article to get insight into his work. Also, be sure to check out all of his experiments here. This almost goes without saying, but you’ll need the chrome or safari browsers to properly view this stuff.
At my day job I mostly work with Flash, AfterEffects, Photoshop. About a year ago I wanted to try something new and created Shitty Day using HTML, jQuery and CSS. And a couple months later, after I discovered that CSS3 can do animations, I did a photo-only tumblr theme called Organ. Nobody really cared until Cameron Moll (thanks) posted it on his blog and I got asked to create an official theme. It got featured in the theme garden and I was like.. wow.. it seems people really like this CSS3 stuff. So I kept on experimenting and created some more CSS3 demos.
I’m really happy that most people enjoy them. But there are also some concerns. If you look at all the demos, you’ll see that most of them only work correctly in -webkit and some just in Safari. And they also lack a graceful degradation. There are people like Paul or Divya that have been pushing me to make them more cross-browser. Thanks and sorry, for letting you down so often. I can understand that some say: If it’s not cross-browser it doesn’t “count”. And Web Designers have a responsibility and so on..
I don’t normally put political stuff on here, but this had me lol’ing all the way to a Black Panthers rally. Read more at the link or below.
Terrible Typo of the Day: On the electronic voting machines in a number of Chicago’s predominantly African-American wards, the name of the Green Party gubernatorial candidate is accidentally spelled “Whitey” instead of “Whitney.”
From the Chicago Sun-Times:
The city election board plans to post a “candidate-neutral” list at polling places, showing the correctly spelled names of all candidates on the ballot, Allen said.
The snafu, however, has Whitney contemplating legal action to force a fix.
“I don’t want to be identified as ‘Whitey.’ If this is happening in primarily African-American wards, that’s an even bigger concern,” Whitney told the Chicago Sun-Times. “I don’t know if this is machine politics at play or why this happened.”
The best part? His first name is Rich.
