Notes Slab No. 1 again

About three years ago, I started working on one of my first typefaces. Released on Github as an open source type face, Slab No. 1 got a regular weight. I worked on it regularly pretty much until I attended Type@Paris in 2016. Then I got busy designing other typefaces. Now I’ve slowly started fixing some curves here and there. Looks like it’ll be a total remake.

(Yes, spacing is a bit generous. Work in progress. )

Notes Behind the scenes

This website is managed by Kirby CMS, running on a Linode server with Runcloud installed. Images and assets are on KeyCDN. The source code is in a private Bitbucket repository, set up with automatic deployment. I’ve written every line of HTML and CSS myself, and almost all of the javascript. According to a quick Pingdom-test, the site loads in 455 ms from Stockholm. Faster than 97% of the tested websites. (Yes, the numbers are worse from other locations, e.g. 2 690 ms from California.)

Yes, I like these nerdy details.

Notes If you can design one thing, you can design everything

That headline is an often referred quote from Lella/Massimo Vignelli. And I … sort of agree. There’s always more to it than meets the eye. But in the sense that design is all about solving problems, then, yes. If you can design one thing, you can design everything. The skill is to know how to solve a problem. What perspective to take into account. But some design related professions require more knowledge than others. And where does design start and where does it stop? So yes … and no.
