Whoops! There's no time to erase your memory now.
Tiffany's in trouble and we gotta help her!

Miss Tiffany's picture

AHAAHA! Look now I'm a blond bombshell in datdress ... err I mean ... distress.

Maybe if I put on a disguise I could fool the monsters into thinking I was Tiffany and she could escape?

My God!!! What a SAD commentary on our world! TYPE to the rescue! We need to rescue the damsel in dis dress (and this sad blog) with something typographic--a weighty subject that makes flip our lids. Tiff, hide behind this:

Check your personality type:

OK, How about if I insert something not in the funny category. I am posting a test file I have developed for spacing/kerning. You can use it as is or select the small caps feature in an opentype savvy app.
I use it to check for color, set up side-bearings, and kerning. There are also some ligs in there and double letters.
Let me know if this makes sense or helps anyone. Also, if it screws you up, I'd like to know that too and why so I can learn from it.

I couldn't figure out how to post the attachment to my last post so it is at the top in my first post where it makes no sense but what the heck, right? I mean, do I ever make sense?

Funny.

And hey, I would be "Tayp", since the first letter of the
Armenian alphabet is "ayp"!* Here's an image for you:
{I'm getting an error uploading. Help?}
You might like to append "(Tayp)" for the other 6 billion people.

* Although it's "ayb" in Eastern pronunciation.

Hrant,
So would I write "Tayp" and then the Armenian glyph?
I don't have an Armenian font though and I don't know which glyph is "ayp".

email a PDF of the glyph and I'll post it in place.

ChrisL

hrant's picture

OK, it's working now:

But like I said, maybe append "(Tayp)".
(And that "ayp" is a hair dark, sorry.)

Hrant,
Check above. I swapped in the change in the original post.
Thanks for your Armenian contribution to international humor!

Bravo Vincent! The Klingons don't have a chance. Her oufit has been in the dryer with "Cling on Free"!!!

Gee, I wonder what typeface they used for the word "on"?

Ok, Vince. Please stop. I'm glad I know you, otherwise this would be more disturbing that it already is.

I dunno, but this space babe looks pretty hot to me!

Beam me up Scotty gone wrong! Looks like one of those accidental mixing of particles when two people get beamed up at the same time. Must have been me and some women named Dynel :-)

I hope Dynel doesn't mind being bald :-)
