Towards a more perfect link underline | acusti.ca

Interesting CSS Trick to simulate real Underlines - while we still should consider not using underlines at all, since they where just introduced to be used in case there is no bold font option.

Preview 150,000 Fonts directly in Indesign

A new plugin from Fonts.com allows you to try out fonts directly in Indesign before buying them. This could be a great tool for all Designers who do Identities, as they might want to "feel" and "see" if a font suits the design and the client. My first question is if it allows to create PDFs or to print out Pages to present them to the client - if not they are missing an opportunity, but it is still a great tool and we might not need to use the online previews anymore.

Animated Fonts, the next frontier

Typography is a beast - everyone uses fonts, they are integral part of every operating system and application, and still in 2012 the art of making type look good is in the hand of the creator. And here are now animated fonts to make it even harder beyond the new challenges that web fonts bring. Animated fonts make fonts even stronger in character and make them express a style and a story.

This will make it difficult to use these fonts beyond the classic script fonts or as a demo. One of these demos is Typogami. I think zou can just use it for a documentary about origami - at least in the animated form, but still - great idea and execution.

Download it for free on their Facebook page and read more about the font following the link.

Contemporary free display font Archive

I like the all caps display font called Archive because it has a great balance in weight, modern elements and readability. As seen in the examples it works great if you age it, but I think it might show it's best use as a logo font for a tech startup that doesn't want to get lost in the see of soft shapes and script fonts.
