    Upstairs inside my head I class fonts in categories. In the Serif category I remember this face because of its pointy serif, and I remember its name mainly because the Ss look like a Boa Constrictor that...

    I have a weird mental block when it comes to this typeface. Whenever I see it, I can never remember its name. Maybe it's because there's absolutely nothing about the face that seems even remotely ser...

    I haven't heard the client's side of the story, but just taking what you've written at face value, you're dealing with a big-time deadbeat and a thief. Getting this person to voluntarily hand over payment...

  • Tiny icons

    Any advice on creating tiny icons so they look crisp at small sizes? (16x16px) I have very simple vector graphics but when I reduce them they don't display well. Any tricks for saving? Also when I reduce them below a certain size in illustrator the component of the group shift slightly and it won't allow me to put it back. For example a white square with a black square centered on top - after reducing the black square is slightly off center. It moves almost like I have snap to grid, point or whatever but none of those options are on. Is this a limitation to working at very small sizes? Should I be creating them in photoshop? Advice appreciated

    16x16 what? Pixels? Millimeters? Points?

    If you're referring to pixels, my best suggestion is to draw them one pixel at a time in Photoshop with the pencil tool.

      ^^ ONE PIXEL AT A TIME!!! how boring (joking)
      used to happen to me, commonly i would remove strokes and would work well and for some certain times i would acutally draw into 16x16, and then blow it up big.( work reverse).
