comment Morphing names of a team roster in to a volleyball shape
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.

@djechlin Thanks for calling me out...I hedge all the time. Just trying to be as fair as possible!

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.

@dumbledad - I've told people before that I don't really want to become a wine "expert" because then I wouldn't be able to appreciate cheaper stuff as much :P You're a programmer, right? Programmers seem to value function waaaaaay more than form :P

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.

comment Looking for a nice, condensed, but readable font
Readability isn't primarily opinion-based - Helvetica has been known to struggle on the screen at smaller sizes. Some choices (like a typeface designed for the screen instead of print) will be objectively better.

comment What font is used in this address?
@Ilan - Interesting find! Both are designed by Adrian Frutiger and look almost identical! Do you know where they differ?

comment What font is used in this address?
@Ilan I'm guessing the lack of a perfect match is due to extra ink in the tight corners. Could be wrong though...I'd be interested to see a closer match if there is one!

comment Creating Voronoi diagram from Adobe Illustrator CC
I experimented with Delaunay triangulation in Illustrator and ultimately found it to be better to work with that sort of stuff in Processing. Illustrator scripting is poorly documented, limited in its feature set, and a lot slower, at least when I was using CS5. Your mileage may vary.

@AndrewLeach looks that way.
