Empathy

Matt Gemmell writes beautifully on one of my favorite topics:

Eventually, I began allowing myself to acknowledge what I’d always inwardly known: that there’s no higher purpose than making an emotional connection with another person. That the success of an endeavour isn’t in the broad strokes and metrics – the sales, or downloads, or ratings, or comments or whatever else – but in the myriad individual moments where someone would be briefly touched, or empowered. Ephemeral, unmeasurable, rarely reported. But critical.

You may not have heard of Jonathan Hoefler or Tobias Frere-Jones but you’ve seen their work. Before their recent split, they collectively ran the most successful and well respected type design studio in the world, creating fonts used by everyone from the Wall Street Journal to the President of the United States.

Font Men, gives a peek behind the curtain into the world of Jonathan and Tobias. Tracking the history of their personal trajectories, sharing the forces that brought them together and giving an exclusive look at the successful empire they built together.

Iconic is a new icon system for the web which takes the most powerful features of SVG icons and exposes them via a bit of JavaScript. You can style the icons with CSS (even just parts of the icon) or change icon properties using simple data attributes (like which way an arrow is pointing). They’re also responsive—so the icons are automatically simplified at smaller sizes. The package is $99 for a pro license and $49 for personal use.
