New from insigne: Mittwoch

Mittwoch is an extended modern serif and a new companion to insigne’s Montag and Dienstag extended sans serifs. Mittwoch conveys a graceful air with its high-contrast letterforms and its ball terminals, but also includes some unique touches that are unexpected for modern faces. Mittwoch includes four different weights and 50 alternate characters, including swashes, more traditional modern letterforms and simplified characters for titling or when a more unique look is needed. For complementary companions, be sure to check out Montag and Dienstag, also available from insigne.

Happenings on Da’ Web

*Bing* Bing is live. Logotype is still ugly. Tried it out. Think I will keep Google as my default for now.

Wanna know what Google Wave is but don't want to sit through a 1.5 hr vid?

Since fonts on the web are the big craze of the moment, here is one of the lesser known players: FontJazz. Apparently works by creating a .gif with all characters and a .js file to do client side replace.

Yay, Office 2010 will finally support OpenType features! Kerning in word was just a bridge too far for MSFT apparently.
