it’s this time of the year again
Finally the top-down time of the year has started. This is how my day starts from now everyday…
I know what you did last night: the commit logs from last night.
If you can stand a little bit of cursing and bad words and if you’re a developer. You should give this site a visit. The commit logs from last night speak for themselves:
a font for number people
OpenType is a font format which I personally might have underestimated in the past. Well you know – fonts and stuff. This all seemed not too interesting up until now. Now that changed dramatically when a font came to my attention which can be used for various purposes and as a font does not resemble the normal numbers and characters scheme. But what can it be used then if not to type numbers and characters?
Well. What about typing graphs?
Everything in the above image is generated by a font… like in your Word-processor (if it uses that font)
“Designed by Travis Kochel, FF Chartwell is a fantastic typeface for creating simple graphs. Driven by the frustration of creating graphs within design applications (primarily Adobe Creative Suite) and inspired by typefaces such as FF Beowolf and FF PicLig, Travis saw an opportunity to take advantage of OpenType technology to simplify the process.
Using OpenType features, simple strings of numbers are automatically transformed into charts. The visualized data remains editable, allowing for hassle-free updates and styling.”
