Why Helvetica is not great
Why Helvetica is not great


Type design is a rather obscure profession but even the typefaces themselves don’t get too much attention by the general public. Most people could only name a few typefaces, but among those few are always Times New Roman, Arial and Helvetica. Well-known and popular or not, in this article I will show you why Helvetica is not the great typeface people perceive it to be.

The designer
Arial is often frowned upon due to its history, but what most people don’t know is that Helvetica has a very similar history. A bit different, but as far as I’m concerned it’s just as dubious and embarrassing. As most people who are interested in typefaces might know, Max Miedinger is the designer of Helvetica. However, what most people probably don’t know is that Max Miedinger was not a type designer. Miedinger st

About this Nicolas Cage situation
Edit: I've just woken up to a night's worth of replies to this journal and people have made a great point about the fact that I could put these deviations in storage until the situation has ended, which I just have. If you are new to the conversation and wonder what kind of deviation we're talking about, they are the same kind of montages seen on that blog: http://niccageaseveryone.blogspot.com/
As you can easily guess from the stats on my profile, I don't post very often. I try to, because it's important to use the website I help build. So when last year, for fun, I made these montages I thought it might make people I'm in touch with on dA laugh, or at least smile at the absurdity of them. And some did. When I submitted them, fourteenthstar and her team saw that they could be controversial and they were discussed during a meeting with her team. I had submitted the images with default settings, so they made me disable prints immediately. That made total sense to me, I felt stupid f

Hello. 
Recently I've seen several art thieves and recolors and I'm irked that I can't do anything about it since the reporting system has changed, only allowing the owners of the content to report it. 
Can the staff do something about it? Thanks.

Hi, they keep showing an advert for a website called “UkrainianCharm” and it’s really bugging me now. I think it may be a glitch that you and some other admins need to fix because I’ve been seeing it a good 100 times or more. Please fix this glitch ASAP.

Hey there. There's this woman who constantly harasses me with rude words like: "screw you you little shit". Name of the user is SpokenMind93. Could you please look into this and take action on her?
