Working as a freelance consultant. I focus on a few main areas - and one of those is the web. Although I do hire specialists in many situations, I develop many of my projects myself. I specialize in responsive design and content strategy and help my clients traverse this constantly changing landscape. I am excited about angular.js and digging into that right now. I also have experience working with restaurant industry – and I might even have my hand in a few music projects. I should be on an r&d team, a project lead, a contract based consultant, or have my own restaurant-nightmares show for a variety of industries. My critiques are not for the faint of heart.

I haven't put anything on my site in over a year. All of my recent work is internal, but I have a new site on the way with a ton of writing. You've never heard that before, have you?

I'll check that out. I haven't used FontLab since this experience but I was just about to break it out again.

comment Vector pasting in wrong spot / Font Lab and Illustrator
Well... I checked them all out. Everything was in place. The only thing that wasn't was the document wasn't double the width. But that didn't fix it (right away). I went through and unchecked and rechecked. Something on that list fixed it. I wish I knew which. Thanks for your direction.

comment Tools to simulate different DPI screens?
ppi and pixels are a whole different thing. I would switch over to em's % and just leave the pixels behind.

comment Tools to simulate different DPI screens?
when I wrote this, I was for some reason assuming you use this meta: <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1, maximum-scale=1"> --- If you do, (I do) then scaling your browser is just like the devices... 320ox width in firefox looks just like the iphone - except the pictures are more crisp and the fonts as well. But the design structure is spot on.

comment target specific corners for rounding
Hooray! Thank you. That worked perfectly. For those like me, web developers, you're probably going to just click this script and then read it all admire it - and then not know what to do. Select the points you want to round -> then from FILE->SCRIPTS->OTHER-SCRIPTS>choose the script. OR - If you are going to use it a lot, Drag it to -> Applications/Illustrator/Presets/en_GB(or en_EN)/Scripts. And then it will be in the FILE/Scripts menu forevers.
