Type: some videos to get us
I want to start us out today with a
few videos to give us a little bit of
a transition into talking about
fonts and typography.
Some Font Fun
And here are some fun sites
we can tinker around with just
a bit, to show you that type,
like life, can be fun times.
How to get nifty fonts
You might notice that most computers– even
the ones here in the super-slick design-minded
labs– don’t have a huge selection of fonts.
This can put you at a disadvantage as a creator.
But not to worry. Fonts are out there.
Let me show you a few cool places to visit.
… I wish to prepare you briefly for what is
coming on the next slide.
The flyer you are about to see is real. While no people
were harmed in its creation, I’m pretty sure the first
time I saw it, I lost a year off the end of my life.
No names have been changed, as no one is innocent.
Okay, what we know…
It’s a little rough, but here’s what we know:
This is an event by Big AND Nasty Productionsalso the guy from Big And Nasty hates me if he Googles himself.

Three DJs were there: DJ bus, Cracka, and Jibby gibby
There was a keg, a light show, and a dance floor
As a team…
