Pretty interesting work. Does anyone happen to know if they've made vector versions of the icons available, given the free nature of these designs?
Two architectural reference books. McKay Building Construction, volumes 1-2 and 3-4. The contents are outdated, but they are still proving very useful.
Years ago when I used it on Linux, Inkscape was truly excellent.
Seriously, one of the nicest pieces of open source software I have used. A joy compared with GIMP and others. It is designed as an SVG editor and wasn't 'cluttered' up with features that the format doesn't support. It's not native on OS X (or Win, I expect).
I use Affinity Designer on OS X now. It's pretty great and does have decent SVG support. (Now. Previous versions would export as a raster graphic embedded in a vector format for SVG or EPS!)
That must have been an inspiring brief: "We want a font like Helvetica, but that we own the licence to."
This is brilliant!
Personally I really like them, especially when they serve as a small 'about' page and a site map. DN is a great example of this. They needn't be gigantic, but if the website is large it's good to have these footers as an anchor to orient yourself, especially when then the stuff 'above the fold' is always competing for attention.
I actually really like it, though I bet it will be a shock for Abduzeedo fans though! I always felt that their colourful branding distracted from the material they were presenting. This certainly won't.
Plenty of CSS bugs tho. I'm sure they'll catch those.
I like it, but I'm confused: What's the deal with the Tumblr integration?
On the surface it looks like it's a Tumblr blog now, but it's still Drupal under the hood. It doesn't function like a Tumblr blog (you can't like posts; the URLs; images are hosted on the abduzeedo domain), so why put the Tumblr menu on there?
It seems they are using their 'rawbdz' Tumblr account for submissions, so if you do follow it, you're not necessarily going to be following the blog you expected.
Anyone else find this strange?
