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!

Screen or print?

comment Software for creating typefaces in Ubuntu
This will be closed as a duplicate, but I've used FontForge on Ubuntu before (it was more stable there than on the Mac). FontForge is tough to work with but it is very powerful.

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.

Nice! Good find!

comment Who can help me identify this handwritten-looking script font?
I don't think it's hand-written - the 'm' glyphs are the same. This font isn't the answer, but it's in the same ballpark. I found that one just by scrolling through MyFonts' handwritten tag results for a bit.

Welcome to GD.SE! Did you try searching for "logo design sites"?

comment How to upload my new font?
If you edited in Paint, you probably turned it into a raster/bitmap image, right? While you can make bitmap fonts, they should be in a vector format. I believe it's possible to import bitmaps into FontForge for you to trace over... fontforge.org/editexample.html#CharCreate

comment Font with (fairly) symmetrical S (or how to edit Arial's S)
@Eric - heh, you exposed me :P no study or anything. I just remember working on my own font and trying to get cute with the letters, and I was never happy with my "S". It's a weird letter!

comment Font with (fairly) symmetrical S (or how to edit Arial's S)
@Eric I dunno, it's just a visual thing, what we're used to culturally. Try doodling 'S' letters on paper without thinking, and see how they're formed. Do you find that the letters are heavier/larger on the bottom part of the S? Try drawing top-heavy ones...they don't look right.

comment Where to start preparing a portfolio to enter a graphic design program?
Nominating for reopening. I don't think we have a question about preparing a portfolio for admission to a design program, and that's a good one to have around!

comment Critique: Tritium software logo design
This logo concept reminded me of Ben Barry's design work for the f8 Developer Conference - might find some inspiration there.

comment Substitute for Avenir (Google webfont or Typekit)
The 'R' is very different. I just don't think there is a stellar free alternative out there.

comment Substitute for Avenir (Google webfont or Typekit)
I see you saw the question about alternatives to Avenir Next Pro...is this not a duplicate? Avenir and Avenir Next will be identical to the casual viewer ('Next'-type weights are usually minor refinements, more characters, or more weights).

comment What are some good fonts to use for bullet characters?
Yikes! I wait until I answer to see that someone changed the tag. Are we talking web or print here? I think that's a relevant question.
