I’m slowly working on a digital shop of goodies, but I’m feeling generous today, so I’m releasing two mini sets of pretty social media icons, just for you!
Hey, look, I made you a present: a bunch of herringbone patterns! Exciting, no? In addition to the .pat file for Photoshop, I’ve included 15 100×100 png images for blog/twitter backgrounds. Or, you know, whatever. Enjoy!
Clementine Sketch is a free handwritten script font. It’s a cute font. It has its uses, sure. But I keep seeing people using it incorrectly and it’s starting to make me angry. Yes, there are probably more important things I should be worrying about, but whatever.
Here’s the deal: Because this a connected script font but it’s no fancy opentype font, you’ve got to make the letters work for you. For the first letter of every word, use the capital letter form. At the end of every word, use a caret (shift + 6). If you’ve got a v or w mid-word, use a caret at the end of the letter preceding it.
So, instead of typing “codswollop!” you would type “Cods^wallop^!”
A little annoying, yes, but it keeps whatever you’re typing from looking all weird and cut-off. It’s worth it. Trust me.
And that concludes my little lesson/rant. Thanks for humoring me.
Chevron patterns, you guys. I’m so trendy! (Or, uh, I would have been trendy like six months ago, whatever.) I’ve been working on a perfect pattern for a client project and I ended up with quite a few that didn’t make the final cut. Nothing too fancy here, but I didn’t want all my hours of sweat and blood and tears to go to waste, so I figured I’d pass them on. Credit appreciated, but not necessary. I’d love to see a link to anything you make with these!
