It’s hard to believe, but 45royale turned nine a couple of days ago. 2014 was one of the most challenging on record for us, but we made it out and are still kickin’! In the past year, we launched our new web site, signed on some great clients, and expanded our design and development team.
Here’s a scenario. We’ve been working with your company for a few months. We’ve spent time discussing your place in the market, user objectives, and business goals. Gathering this information helped us make informed decisions about your product. We’ve spent endless hours together discussing, wireframing, designing and developing your product. Every day we have been living and breathing this amazing new “thing”. You’re pumped. We’re pumped. We’re all riding the high and certain that we’re steering things in the right direction. Or are we?
Welcome to the first installment of Typography of the Month, also known as TOTM. One of the first things we do when starting a web design project is set the typographic tone for the site. As such, we’re always on the look out for beautiful, unique, and expressive type. Since we can’t use them all, we thought we’d share our findings in hopes that you’ll be able to use them in an upcoming project. Without further a do, here are our favorite typefaces for the month of December.
“The client is just as afraid as you are. They’ve fought for the budget to hire you. Their job is on the line. And their business might go under if this project goes badly. So have some empathy for them. And never miss an opportunity to show them that they’re in good hands with you. Be confident in what you’re doing. Take charge. Behave like the expert they hired.”
I’ve been using my new iPhone 6 Plus for about two weeks now. I’ve had a lot of people asking me about it, so I figured I’d write out a review. I previously had an iPhone 5, and other than cracking my screen about two months before the new release, I loved it. The battery life left a little bit to be desired, but I always feel that way about a device at the end of a two year contract cycle and after several new OS versions. When the new phones were announced the big question was, do I go for the iPhone 6 or the 6 Plus?
