  3. Trade Gothic vs. Crayons

    Melissa: I actually hope people will stop using Trade Gothic for their branding. I like it, but everything looks the same... Which sort of defeats the purpose of branding. Trade Gothic, bold, all caps.
    Josh: Right? At least if they did it in crayon it would stand out for a little while...
    Melissa: I'm not sure why crayon was your first idea for an alternative, but sure

  4. I did an interview for Design Feast last week, which I think went well. I talked about design, economics, books, and dancing. Here’s a preview:

    There is something about the totality of the book that I think makes it enduring. The fact that it exists in space as a whole object that holds content seems obvious, but I think it’s lost on a lot of people. The thing about web design, for example, is that you can customize the interface and branding until the cows come home, but it ultimately has to be viewed on some device that you have no control over—whether it’s a desktop, tablet, or mobile phone. The platform that delivers the content has some effect on the way the user experiences it, but in a way it’s sort of arbitrary. When you’re making a book you have control over the design as well as the platform, because the book is its own platform. You control how big the pages are, the quality of the paper, the texture of the cover material. All of this influences the way the reader experiences the content and if you can define all of those variables, you get to define exactly how the object will exist in space.

    On Problem Solving. I hear a lot of people boldly proclaim that “Graphic design is problem solving.” Part -part- of graphic design is problem solving. Isolating this single element of the design process and holding it high as the de facto element of graphic design is among the most asinine…

    Perfection Printing Press No. 605 mounted on a cherry base

    Chase size: 1 and 5/8 x 2 and 3/4 

    Wilkins Toy Company, Keene, New Hampshire

    "Perfection. A lightweight self-inking toy press, often light blue in colour. A number still survive. The catalogue of 1911 showed five models. The first two were described as ‘patented 10 March, 1908’, the others as ‘patent applied for’."

    The sketchbook images definitely make the cards seem more personal (and perhaps more memorable).
