Why Erik Spiekermann appeals to me, and how my life relates

shared on May 03, 2015

Anyone who doesn’t like Helvetica is a friend in my eyes, so by that logic, Erik and I go way back. Kidding aside, the amount of passion Erik has for type is amazing. I mean, most people don’t have that kind of passion about anything so to see someone living and breathing their passion is refreshing. I try to do the same in my work so I look at people like him for inspiration, tips,...

DSGN, version 8.0

shared on March 08, 2015

This post is referring to a previous version of DSGN, the sourcecode of which can be found here. About a month ago, I felt I needed to give this dear site of mine more love in the form of a redesign. As I started the redesign, I realized what it needed was more of a realign. The code needed a major refactor, mobile styles needed to be refined, and I needed a better way to...
