why

For School.
Old School
what’s it all about

It’s about playing with type as an object rather then a letter.


Again, designed this at school years ago. I was playing more with objects then letters. Number were use as a sort of code. The numbers plus the letters spelled out what the name of the book is.

everydayworks, Tweet HTML Typography using Georgia Font

Sep 02 09 by everydayworks




why

Exploring type in HTML text
everydayworks tweet
what’s it all about

It’s about experimenting with CSS Text Rotation and HTML text typographic designs.
Fonts Used

Georiga.


Another HTML typography design, I styled my typographic poster I did for my first post 1st Post and added “tweet” instead of “01 post”. It is used on my Twitter page for the background. I did have to tweak a few things.

  • The 2nd “e” isn’t flipped like my original design.
  • I removed the other graphic elements and just used a block color div.

Again, only works in Safari and FF latest browsers. Enjoy!

1999ish Design skills? Old School

Aug 27 09 by everydayworks




why

Not sure really.
Old School
what’s it all about

It’s about a cute picture with old school design skills.
Animation

Small animation, the photo thumbnails would cycle through a bunch of other photos of this cute little girl.


Wow, Remember when duplicating 1 pixel column or rows of an image and stretching to create something cool looking. I still use that sort of technique on images rather than resizing.

HTML Typography using CSS Text Rotation

Aug 25 09 by everydayworks




why

I wanted to experiment with type using only HTML text.
css typography
what’s it all about

It’s about design using CSS


For sometime now, I’ve been wanting to turn my typographic poster into fully HTML text using CSS. I knew it was possible, I just didn’t know how. After hours of research on CSS Text Rotation, I came across Snook.ca site that had just the information I needed. So with a little CSS and Designs skills I coded this first Typographic poster using only HTML text. My font selections were limited of course. This didn’t really stop me from creating something really nice to look at. Stay tuned, i’ll finish more HTML Typography designs for all to see.

I haven’t done any testing to this, I do know it works in Safari 4 and FF 3.5.

Finally, my 1st post. Welcome.
