comment Critique: Scrollable flyout nav menu
@JamesEarnshaw If you're referring to the smallest view where the search box and the logo get weird, that happened when I copied/pasted to Codepen and didn't feel like fixing it because it was beyond the scope of the question. I'm interested in hearing more about awkward design rules though, that's a critique I didn't expect to hear!

comment Critique: Scrollable flyout nav menu
@ZachSaucier Unusable from a technical perspective? If you're viewing in Codepen on a mobile, make sure it's set to 1x. The menu scrolls on swipe; the arrows aren't required there but admittedly that might not be obvious to the uninitiated.

@Nit - Criticism is expected, but I would hope that you could at least delve into the "why" a bit! Feel free to post an answer :)

comment Methods for designing identity systems beyond the logo
@DA01 - Do you have a sense of what that looks like? Does the design team pass a brand manual to the ad team who runs with it? Or, does the designer pass a logo to the ad team, who does some stuff, and then the designers encapsulate the use cases into something more consistent? My specific context is that I'm trying to launch an in-house brand and I feel like I'm stuck between either defining guidelines we won't use later or having a messy brand with no rules. I'm wondering if this is a common problem or if I'm just approaching it wrong.

comment How do I properly create a derivative work with a font licensed as SIL Open Font?
It's just weird to me that I would make no meaningful changes to the font other than reduce the number of glyphs in it and then put my name on it like I made the font myself. It makes sense, though...

comment How do I properly create a derivative work with a font licensed as SIL Open Font?
@Amphiteóth - yeah, that seems to be the most important part. If you want to throw that in as an answer you're welcome to; otherwise, I'll post up an answer with some of the process I went through to arrive at my solution.

Welcome to GD.SE! This is difficult to visualize - do you think you could post up some screenshots of what you have done so far?

comment Skew transform severely distorts screenshot - any workaround?
Try scaling it down first, then applying the skew in two separate transformations. I've found that can give better results.

comment Can you help me identify one serif and one sans font?
@pixelpinch take a look at the 'e' in 'Garden' and the 'C' in "RESIDENCE". Once you know what those look like you'll pick out Rotis every time. It's one of the weirdest fonts I know that has a degree of popularity.

comment Can you help me identify one serif and one sans font?
@Ilan Eh, it was an easy one. If you'd like, you can edit my half of the answer into yours and I can delete mine since our posts are pretty similar. Unless you're ideologically opposed to fully answering the question of course :P

comment What font is being used for the Apple Watch?
Good catch on the website reference. I'll mark this as accepted until we get more details (I'd love to know about its name, the design process, etc.).

comment What font is being used for the Apple Watch?
@DA01 Nah, I was watching the keynote and right away I noticed that the 'e' and 'c' glyphs didn't curve all the way around like Helvetica does. The 'R' and 'G' are very different too.

comment Are there any free tools to convert .eot files to .ttf, .otf or any other font formats?
Were you able to convert an EOT file to anything else? I tried and was unable to do so.

comment What is wrong with Comic Sans?
Papyrus, as well. It really bummed me out when Avatar used it for subtitles - you spend hundreds of millions of dollars on a movie and you go with a MS default font that is supposed to evoke ancient Egyptian papyri?

comment What is wrong with Comic Sans?
@dumbledad - You're probably not the type to make angry comments about font choices on YouTube, either :) I really do think that a lot of Comic Sans hate is bandwagon hate...I think the same thing happened with stuff like disco, and Nickelback. A third case could be made that how a designer feels about someone using Comic Sans is analogous to how a gourmet chef feels about someone going to McDonald's for a hamburger.
