Fontyou Beta Tests Collaborative Type Factory

Creativebits - Tue, 01/21/2014 - 14:53

Paris-based Fontyou was founded in 2013 with the idea that while designers share a love for type and often create new letterforms, they lack the time or technical skills to extend their ideas to the point of creating a complete font. One aspect of Fontyou is that it provides designers with a place to share such work for comment by the design community and receive inspiration from other work. In some cases Fontyou also plays the role of working with such type fragments to turn them into fonts or vectors sold on its site, with a percentage of royalties going to the creator of the submission.

Fontyou is now extending this idea by beta testing what it ambitiously calls "the first collaborative type factory." The idea is that those accepted can not only post type ideas and fragments but can build on the submissions of others. If such a collaboration ultimately results in a product that seems viable, Fontyou will then polish it before making it available for sale, with all those contributing taking a cut of the royalties. You can request access to the beta program on the Fontyou site.

Scrabble Typography Returns for a Second Round

Unbeige - Tue, 01/21/2014 - 11:36

scrabble typography

Andrew Capener‘s fontastic version of Scrabble is back! The California designer set out to reinvent the beloved board game in a way that would excite people about typography. His concept was to replace the familiar bleached-wood, monofont letter tiles with rich walnut versions in a variety of typefaces. An additional design tweak: all of the game components would be magnetized, an innovation that anyone who has lost that lone “Z” or “K” can appreciate. A licensee of Hasbro is back on board with a second (limited) edition, which includes new fonts and Bauhaus-inspired game components.

Quote of Note | Marc Jacobs

Unbeige - Sun, 01/19/2014 - 10:19

mj-ss-2014

“…Jamie [Bochert, fit model and muse] comes in with jet black hair and traipses in some old Victorian dress in the middle of summer. And you know what? She looks cool. So you sort of say, ‘Why not?’ We started looking at things that are Victorian. It really started with a pair of surf shorts and a Victorian blouse….There were a list of reasons: the final scene of Pippin. This book of women in Tahiti wearing Victorian blouses and making these tropical print quilts. Maybe a bit of what Prada’s men’s show was. Maybe a lot of things I’ve taken in. Then Jamie walks in with this dress and all of a sudden you’re adding things up, and somehow I make a logical connection between those things. There is no right or wrong.”

Quote of Note | Dan Neil

ford f-150

“Ford changed the game this week when it unveiled its aluminum-intensive pickup truck, the 2015 F-150, that is as much as 700 pounds lighter than a comparable steel-bodied vehicle. To the casual observer, the anticipated 3 mpg (20%) increase gained by Ford’s high-tech ‘light-weighting’ (a term of art) may seem marginal, but I assure you it is a figure of immediate and national consequence.

[Gives example of fuel economy gain and resulting net efficiency of Toyota Prius, which averages 50 mpg, with that of low-mpg vehicles like pickups, in which the fuel-saving effect is multiplied: to nearly four times that of the Prius, in his example.] Now reckon with the Big Multiplier: 763,000. That is the number of F-series trucks Ford sold last year, a figure that on its own would make the F-series the seventh largest vehicle company in the U.S. market. By virtue of the hundreds of millions of miles rolled up by the F-series annually, you are looking at the single biggest real-world advance in fuel economy in any vehicle since the Arab oil embargo.”

Watch: Stephen Colbert Discovers the Darker Side of Norman Rockwell

Unbeige - Fri, 01/17/2014 - 12:49

Biographer and art critic Deborah Solomon stopped by The Colbert Report this week to discuss her new Norman Rockwell biography, American Mirror (Farrar, Straus, and Giroux), which reveals that the American-as-apple-pie artist wrestled with severe depression and was consumed by a sense of inadequacy. The real scandal, for Colbert, is that Rockwell was not the political conservative that he has been made out to be. Among Solomon’s revelations is that he [gasp!] voted for Kennedy.

Mark Your Calendar: Isaac Mizrahi at 92Y

Unbeige - Thu, 01/16/2014 - 20:22

Watching the multitalented Isaac Mizrahi converse with flighty QVC hosts who do not understand most of his references is more enjoyable than most network television, and so you won’t want to miss his upcoming appearance at New York’s 92nd Street Y. The fashion designer, business mogul, “masstige” pioneer, raconteur, and sometime cabaret singer will submit to the surgical, this-is-your-life interview stylings of IMG and CFDA vet Fern Mallis, who never fails to draw big crowds for her ongoing “Fashion Icons” series at 92Y. The Mizrahi-Mallis matchup is scheduled for the evening of Tuesday, February 4. Grab your tickets here before the QVC Mafia buys the lot of them. Think of this as our version of Today’s Special Value.
