Over at LostType the newest release is Bemio font.
This is what is looks like with a couple of other fonts for comparison.
I like it well enough that I have added it to my font library.
What do you think – does it stand out enough to be memorable? Does it have some special appeal for you?
Over on Automattic’s DailyPost blog there is an article today about the 2012 Postaday badges that are available.
I put the badge in a widget that you can see over on the right sidebar here, and linked it back to the Daily Post. And when I publish this post, I shall tag it with ‘postaday’.
Here is an extract from The Daily Post:
As for tagging your posts, we’re going to keep it simple this year, so please start using the postaday tag in replacement of postaday2011 or postaweek2011.
To see all the latest posts published by other participants, add postaday as a topic in your reader using the “Add a topic” box in the bottom left corner.
What does the second paragraph mean? It means I should go to The WordPress.com Reader Page and I will see the ‘Add a topic’ box – and I can take it from there.
I am hesitating in case I get deluged. Ah well, let’s get wet!
I recall that this was a joint effort from me and my wife and partner Tamara.
I also recall when we put it together, and I like that memory.
It’s a while since we made it and if we were to do it again, I would vote for using a different typeface (maybe), but the idea remains the same.
I hope you enjoy it.
The deadline for submissions is March 15, 2012
The national Endangered Species Day Youth Art contest:
…provides young people with an opportunity to learn about endangered species and express their knowledge and support through artwork.
Endangered Species Day
Started in 2006 by the United States Congress, and renewed each year, Endangered Species Day (ESD) is a national recognition of the importance of animal and plant species worldwide and is an occasion to educate the public on how to protect endangered species.
It will be celebrated on May 18th.
With hindsight, 2012 will be seen as a good year, just as the 1990s, and before that the 1980s, and so on are now seen as good years because each year the situation gets worse.
Polluting, spoiling, and destroying habitat is a game that wins by stealth. Things get worse, but in the short run we don’t see the effects.
If you know someone who is in K-Grade 2, Grades 3-5, Grades 6-8, Grades 9-12 and you want to help educate them and for them to go on to educate others about endangered species, tell them about the art contest.
