Branding and UX designer. Obsessive typophile. Color theory junkie. I spend my days mediating the treaty between logic and creativity.

comment Why do yellow and red look good together in this photo?
Extra points for the black interior. Better combo. What does Tarantino know? I'm a Mopar man myself, but yellow and black in any brand is fast. And for the record, that is yellow, not orange as others implied. You guys must be wearing tinted glasses or something.

comment I need suggestions for an 'undelete' icon
I hinted at it above, but let me come right out and say it ... Use words: "Restore", "Undelete", "Undo".

comment How can I display extra information in a table?
This is really more of a UX Design question in my mind. My vote is to send it that way for more extensive feedback. You'll want to craft your question in a broader way like "how to best present additional table data" so it's not too specific to your application.

If you must have an icon, try this query at IconFinder.

@Blake is asking about screen printing so I would assume it's white and green on a blue surface.

comment Is the OCR-A sans-serif?
Because monospace invites such heavy distortion it is often treated independently. Some faces manage to pull it off with a pretty good imitation of true sans or serif, but not here. Those are slab serifs, BTW, not to be confused with cross bars seen on t and f.

The answer is: don't bother labeling it. There is a wide range of transformation you can apply to a color when you understand Albers' experiments. I'll dig up my copy and find a representative passage to reference.
