SimpleMarkup #193 – Fontal Attraction

Uh-oh. I’m like, seven comics away from #200. Gleep! I have no idea what to do! When I hit 100, I just did a big collage of the previous 99 comics, but that was like, a half cop-out, right? I feel like I need to up my game somehow…

This week’s comic would have come earlier, except I’ve had a rather hellish week, with things like a lower-back injury and a broken stovetop. Plus I had comic-writer’s block until yesterday, when I came across a new-to-me font called Spectral that a client used in a manuscript.

I always love finding new, clean fonts that I can work easily in, and when I mentioned it, people on my team fawned over it too. That’s one way you know you’ve found your tribe—when people fawn over fonts with you with palpable typeface nerdiness.

Don’t forget to check out my new project: the Editors Foundry. This is a paid Slack community meant to provide starter editors with a place to mingle and help grow their businesses.

Have a great weekend!
