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

Techgnology and the Arts - The Current DA Poll
Contribution to the DA Poll Question Discussion and Debate currently raging underneath:  How has Technology affected the Arts?
The digital canvas phenomenon is a good example of how new digital tech possibilities can instantly excite the new school avant-gardists and simultaneously horrify the old school art world traditionalists, two tribes of peoples of different artistic temperaments.  To the traditionalists it’s just crass graffiti created by no-talent wannabes. To the more modernists it’s the revolutionary liberation of arts for the masses.  Why should not being able to draw keep one from being an artist?  The answer is that both views are correct.  I hold equally dear the first sketches of a future great artist here on DA as I would his or her current masterpieces.  Art is at once the moment but also the continuing narrative stretching from our ancient past into our (hopefully) endless future.  Is pho
