  • Posted to Introducing Textblock, Feb 05, 2019

    Theo Rosendorf of Typographic Desk Reference (TDR) fame, has released a new javascript-based tool for adjusting size, leading, & grades.

    Here's what he has to say:

    Going on five years, we have used Textblock to great effect at Glyphic. It was originally used for design prototypes, and over time slipped into production for sites already using JavaScript. We now use it to typeset all of our work. It’s quick to use and gives complete control over type size and spacing.

    We thought it was just too good to keep to ourselves so we have released it open source. We hope you enjoy using it as much as we have.

    This is brilliant. I was playing around with PDF export and the new export panel yesterday, and I've already used it half a dozen times for client work.

    Figma truly are game changers.

    Good list of deals, although extremely annoying that none of the links can be opened via middle-click.

    A huge pet-peeve is when a site meddles with expected interactions like this.

    Investing time in family is time very well spent. You've made a wise choice here (and hopefully avoiding burnout along the way).

    This sounds great. Being able to hide stuff like the Apple badge would be fantastic.

    I can't say I'm a fan at all. It looks cheap.

    Thanks for sharing this! Great to see her stuff again.

    Her work is the designer equivalent of a David Thorne email.
