  • Trying to Understand Comics | O Danny Boy
    boys boys Nearly every female character in superherodom now needs a Brazilian bikini wax I m throwing away my Victoria s Secret catalog for being too demure Even poor old flat chested Kitty Pryde and Sue Storm are now crazy hot The art in general has completely changed The influence of anime and more experimental pieces from the 1980s are everywhere The old Kirby style is definitely long gone Here s some mini reviews of the issues I bought in case you are interested in checking these out All Star Superman 1 Not bad Comprehensible with some neat riffs on the tired Superman cliches Kind of a sci fi Superman I ll probably pick up another Fantastic Four 30 Dull except for the Namor Reed tension Pass Green Lantern 11 and Green Lantern Corps 1 I have absolutely no idea what s going on here Seems intriguing and layered but I have no way of getting into these Uncanny X Men 475 Lame Thin story weak characters Astonishing X Men 14 15 Ah now here s the X Men I remember Nuanced emotional with a core of humor and humanity I ll buy more of these and go back and buy the old ones Ms Marvel 1 Ok but probably won t continue Eternals 1 Interesting but slow moving I ll probably give this one more read and see if it picks up I realize after writing this Can you believe what the kids are reading these days that I must sound like the most out of it old fart and man that sucks 9 July 2006 Dan Post navigation On Fireworks and Patriotism Fighting Recommendations 3 thoughts on Trying to Understand Comics Steve Portigal says 9 July 2006 at 8 06 pm Wait til you can t find any

  • What's Normal
    is 10 point sometimes 11 Leading Leading the vertical space between lines is 20 percent additional of you font size Which for body copy typically means 2 points So 10pt font has 12pt leading 11pt font has 13pt of leading etc One exception to this is very small type below 8pt which needs more leading to make it more legible Line Length Leading Ratio The most important thing for legibility for black type on white paper anyway Optical Grey is how dense the type appears on the page You generally don t want to have lines of text without enough leading More leading makes the optical grey lighter The longer your line length the more leading you have to have to add For body copy add 3 or 4 Perversely the same hold true with short line lengths where you should add 2 5 3 or 4 Never more than 4 though Font Choice The difference between the thick and thin parts of letters in certain fonts like Bodini make a lot of sparkle that make then less legible You need to add more leading to compensate Also the ratio of the Cap the top of a capital letter to the X Height the top of a lower case x makes a difference The bigger the ratio the less leading you need to add because there is a lot of space already designed into the font face posted at 10 32 AM in design 101 faculty typography comments 0 trackback 0 preceding entries SEARCH ENTRIES CATEGORIES 3D 2 alumni 3 assistantships 3 big ideas 25 classes 16 classmates 17 cmu 14 cognition 1 cpid program 3 design 101 27 design theory 20 extracurricular 11 faculty 9 field trips 5 hci program 4 info design 3 interface design 6 meta 6

  • Rhetoric and Poetics in Design
    our lives Products have three characteristics Ethos the voice of the product or its desirability Pathos which addresses the values and expectations physical cognitive and cultural of the audience its affordances and adumbrations and Logos the technological reasoning or how the product works We are persuaded by all three aspects sometimes one more than the others sometimes all in balance Designing rhetorically is a radical method because in this model there are no fixed truths or things These exist only in the beliefs of the speaker and the audience This model doesn t deny Truth it is just held within the communication between people Echoes of the existentialist interpretation posted at 10 12 PM in design theory comments 2 trackback 0 preceding entries SEARCH ENTRIES CATEGORIES 3D 2 alumni 5 assistantships 3 big ideas 28 classes 20 classmates 20 cmu 22 cognition 1 cpid program 3 design 101 30 design theory 21 extracurricular 15 faculty 11 field trips 5 hci program 4 info design 3 interface design 6 meta 8 money 5 papers 5 photography 5 preparation 6 projects 49 readings 31 software 8 special guest stars 15 student life 19 teaching 2 techniques 12 thesis paper 8 thesis project 5 typography 9 visualization 8 WEEKLY ARCHIVES Week of May 9 2004 Week of May 2 2004 Week of Apr 25 2004 Week of Apr 18 2004 Week of Apr 11 2004 Week of Apr 4 2004 Week of Mar 28 2004 Week of Mar 21 2004 Week of Mar 14 2004 Week of Feb 29 2004 Week of Feb 22 2004 Week of Feb 15 2004 Week of Feb 8 2004 Week of Feb 1 2004 Week of Jan 25 2004 Week of Jan 18 2004 Week of Jan 11 2004 Week of Jan 4 2004 Week of Dec
