5 Fonts That You Need to Completely Avoid

Posted by Alexa Audet on Sep 15, 2016 8:35:00 AM

 

Just because they come pre-installed in your computer, doesn't mean they are okay to ever be used. So, where does this font prejudice originate among designers? It could be that the hatred of these fonts grew from overuse with the whole familiarity breeds contempt mumbo jumbo. Maybe it's determined on a case-by-case basis. Unfortunately, there is no science or mathematical equation to determine a terrible font; if there were, every one of these would be extinct.

In a list of what could have easily been 100, I've narrowed it down to 5 fonts that are complete garbage, use at your own risk.

Get Your Creative Fiber Here!

Posted by Alexa Audet on Aug 30, 2016 8:00:00 AM

I’m going to admit, I had a few creative blocks of my own when starting this blog. It’s not easy being charmingly witty 24/7 and, unfortunately, there isn't a creative fiber supplement on the market yet. That being said, we have to look elsewhere when finding a cure for what ails us. So what helps a creative genius in a rut? Here are five things to try next time you encounter that creative constipation.

From Design School To Code School

Posted by Ben Fjare on Aug 16, 2016 8:00:00 AM

I continued my education after high school at Montana State University. The degree of choice was a Bachelor of Fine Arts with an emphasis on Graphic Design.  If you're not familiar with what you study with a graphic design degree, it's basically a four year trade school degree with emphasis in art (painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, etc.) and then a study in how to create logos, print media, concept art, website design and the like.  When I was enrolled in my classes, there was one design student that was an excellent developer as well as an artist, and when we created websites in one course his skill set allowed his website to be far far better then anyone else in the class.

Challenging Yourself To Learn New Skills Fuels Your Work Performance

Posted by Justin Brown on Aug 5, 2016 8:00:00 AM

I am a firm believer that challenging yourself to learn new skills fuels your work performance. However, I think work performance is only the tip of the iceberg.

It's a powerful force when you're able to do something that interests you. Letting your mind wander can produce or connect ideas or thoughts that you never thought you had. After all, there's a reason why Google, HP, 3M, and several other companies have adopted the 80/20 rule. The rule allows their employees to work on assigned tasks 80% of the time then spend the rest on tasks or hobbies they enjoy doing. The article can be found through the link below.

Make Your Job Feel Less Like Work with "20% Time"

As for myself, challenging yourself to learn new skills has an overwhelming effect on my overall health and well-being, which translates into both the quality and quantity of work performance.
