Through Lines 060

Big fan of Deep Sea Diver here after encountering the band through an appearance from Sharon Van Etten on their latest album. Bonus points for a cover of Wilco’s “Reservations” as part of this performance at Paste Studio NYC.

  • It’ll be interesting to see what happens with this Diversity in Design initiative. Good intentions obviously, but let’s see some real results.
  • “If you think you’re burned out, you’re burned out, and if you don’t think you’re burned out, you’re burned out.” How to Take a Break.
  • Oooh, this new TrueType Curves plugin for Glyphs will be handy if I can ever get enough time/energy to finish working on my long gestating type project.
  • Speaking of type, Aerobik from Lift Type is pretty fun I must say.
  • David Březina’s got another interesting type family in his new release through Rosetta Type called Handset. Definitely relevant to a project I’m working on at the moment.
  • I don’t think I knew there was a contest behind the 36 Days of Type project.
  • Some great new prints at the 3rd annual Glasgow Print Fair including work from my pal Conor Nolan and favorites Supermundane, Eleni Kalorkoti, and Risotto Studio.
  • New music from Alex Lifeson? Definitely not what I would have expected — and maybe that’s entirely the point.
  • Solid research and sleuthery by my pal Doug Wilson on Telegram Commercial Codes.
  • I won’t lie, I appreciate this particular rant from Roger Waters.
