I need help!
I'm creating a website/social networking resource and I am designing a logo. I found a font that I like for free from a website and want to use just one letter "s" for my logo. I will not be selling the logo or distributing the font in any way, just want to have a clean logo for my website/potentially more than that in the future.
1) can I do this?
2) can I customize the logo in photoshop or something and tweak it to make it original and use that?
3)if not, what steps do I need to take in order to do this legitimately?
Any help or advice would be extremely appreciated guys!
Is there any research regarding the use of Title Case in headlines? I am currently doing work for a company that uses title case throughout its web site, on all headlines and subheads, and I find it unnecessary and more difficult to read than sentence case. I especially think that title case is not necessary when it's a complete sentence. But that's just my opinion. Thanks!
Hi my friends, today I have a question for you, WHAT IS YOUR OPINION of this f-i ?

I've started this ladproject, it's a "letterform a day" project. I was hoping to see if anyone else would like to join me in this experiment/project. The basics of it are, to "find" or make a letterform a day for 50 days. It can be found anywhere or in anything. You can make one or draw one. Paint one or just find one that's already made. An exercise to open up the possibilities of what can be considered typography, or where we can find typography. Inspired by Stefan Sagmeister and Michael Beirut, I've dedicated myself to find or make a letterform a day. You can follow the progress here... http://nicolascervantes.wordpress.com/ Post your letterforms there and also comment. Thanks guys, here's aB that jumped out at me today.

To Whom I may concern,
I am currently a senior at the American University Dubai, majoring in graphic design. However I have a strong liking towards type design and I was wondering if anyone could recommend good type design firms to intern at.
I was and still am working on a typeface that I created for my senior project.
TypingLot is an urban type collection. I started shooting these with an iPhone, cropped and collected on an instagram account on daily basis. I live in New York and teach in New Jersey. Most of them are from NY/NJ area. However, the collection also includes from other cities that I visited over the last year like Helsinki, Istanbul, New Orleans, Maine, Izmir, Tallinn and Ankara.

SWISSTED - flyers into international typographic style posters.
Using Berthold Akzidenz-grotesk Medium (not Helvetica).
As I am a big fan of typography and board games, I decided to combine these two passions into one. Gametica is a simple board game for two to four players, in which the players race their four tokens from start to finish according to die rolls. Like other cross and circle games, it is similar to the Indian Pachisi. In my version on board I added icons on the board symbolize additional tasks.The 140 cards has been added to the game with questions about Helvetica, typography and design. The whole project is based on the world's most popular font Helvetica.
I have finished the basic design of Shket and I'm looking for testers and critique. I'm specially interested in checking glyphs and diacritics for not so common (for me at least) languages as Swedish, Norwegian and so on. The font currently has 406 glyphs including cyrillic alphabet.

I came up with a new concoction which is a cross between Arabic Letterism and Generative Art.
Arabic Letterism has been around in the Arab countries for more than three decades now. The works of one its most notable artist, Nja Mahdaoui, have inspired me very much when I saw them, and one of my first abstract art works in 1984 was a Letterism piece in which I tried to copy Mahdaoui's style.
I am trying to find out the name of this font if anyone can help me please.
