Glyph Panel in Photoshop?

Glyph Panel in Photoshop?

Adobe and Typekit are looking at ways to make robust typographic controls more accessible in application UIs - starting with Photoshop. The recently formed Adobe Typography Customer Advisory Board was introduced in a blog post yesterday, and here's some of what they had to say:

"We're already working on some long-requested changes to the Photoshop UI, and plan to introduce a glyph panel in the near future. We're also beginning to tackle the problem of simulated type variations, so you can enable stylistic variants like Small Caps with confidence that you're seeing what the type designer intended."

There's more to this story over on the Typekit blog, but a glyph panel for Photoshop has us all kinds of excited right now.

Gamechanger: A Cautionary Tale of Corporate Jargon

Gamechanger: A Cautionary Tale of Corporate Jargon

When design firm Pentagram puts together their annual holiday card, you can be sure it will have people talking. This year is no exception as they poke fun at the corporate jargon often heard around the office. The card's design is basic in contrast with the phrases and language it denounces. They've posted some images on their Flickr page, so flip through the seven verses - a cross between a Dr. Seuss book and a De La Soul track - and try to forget the time you used the word 'creovation' at the dinner table.

Voltage by Laura Worthington for Umbrella Type

Voltage is an unexpected and energetic standout in the world of script fonts, breaking free from formal classifications while retaining the degree of personality we treasure in hand lettering. Voltage takes the script font in a different direction, with an emphasis on practicality and uniformity, and with the reader's needs at the forefront-this is a straightforward, muscular lettering font, assertive, yet down-to-earth. This most magnetic typeface provides 154 unique swash designs (that yield a total of 348 swash variations), 39 alternates, and 15 ligatures. Electrifying!
