why this, why now?

I've decided to try out a blog because I seem to have ideas and get ideas all the time, with no central and accessible way of documenting these ideas. It could be ideas for my own personal projects, ideas for teaching design, design inspiration, or a place to put up some of my own design/art/creative stuff.

So here we go, lets see how well it suits my intentions....

serif and sans serif

This image comes from the website http://ilovetypography.com  which was recommended in Just My Type by Simon Garfield.  Any typography lessons I have done in the past seem to start with serif vs sans serif, so I love this image.  This website goes onto explain things in a fun and easy to follow way, so take a look budding typographers....
As an aside, this also relates nicely to Deadwood and Paul Newman DVDs I have watched lately....excellent!
