Blue Goblet Serif: A new member of the hand-drawn Blue Goblet Series

Blue Goblet is a series of fonts and ornaments by Cory Godbey and Jeremy Dooley. This best selling series has now been extended to include a new member, Blue Goblet Serif. Blue Goblet Serif comes with a variety of weights and also an outline version. Blue Goblet is hand-lettered by the artist, Cory Godbey, and is organic, spontaneous and exuberant. Characters bounce and dance above and below the baseline and x-height, making this a whimsical and fun script.



Not only is Blue Goblet Serif a excellent choice, it also is a member of a wide family of different fonts. You can use it side by side with the original Blue Goblet, and there are a wide range of ornaments available, totaling over 350 illustrations! These illustrations include frames, florals and other text ornaments that can be inserted into your text and resized at will. This makes the Blue Goblet series a great pick when you want a type system that works very well together for a very unique and consistent look. The Blue Goblet series continues to grow and be expanded, making it a valuable investment.



Blue Goblet Serif also includes auto replacing ligatures that make it appear that the script was drawn by the artists own hand, just for you! Blue Goblet Serif also includes a wide variety of alternates that can be accessed in any OpenType enabled application. Blue Goblet includes over 150 OpenType glyphs, and is loaded with features including an even more unique alternate alphabet. Included are swash alternates, style sets, old style figures and small caps. Please see the informative PDF brochure to see these features in action. OpenType enabled applications such as the Adobe suite or Quark can take full advantage of the automatic replacing ligatures and alternates. This family also includes the glyphs to support a wide range of languages.



Blue Goblet Serif is great choice for display and short blocks of display text, children’s books, packaging, or other unique applications. Fill in the counter spaces with color for a unique look, or alternate the different weights. Use Blue Goblet whenever you want to inject a sense of fun and whimsy to your designs.

Carta Marina

Carta Marina is based on the titling found on the famous map drawn by Olaus Magnus in 1539. The map of northern Europe took 12 years to complete, and the total size is a huge 1.7 meters tall by 1.25 meters wide. More information about the map, as well as the high resolution reference document used to create the typeface and illustration set can be found at the James Ford Bell Library, University of Minnesota. The titling is slightly aged, very sturdy and elegant. Carta Marina includes a full set of OpenType alternates for every character in the English alphabet, oldstyle figures, historical forms, small caps and 64 discretionary ligatures. These ligatures are used to alter the appearance of the type so that the printing appears realistic and without any duplicate letters to detract from the antique appearance. The Carta Marina family also includes some of the unique illustrations that give the map much of its character. It includes depictions of fanciful sea creatures, land animals a

Microsoft Expression

I have been trying out the Microsoft Expression web design program recently. My final verdict: I like it better than Dreamweaver. I’ve been using Dreamweaver for 5 years now, but where Expressions really shines is its handling of CSS, which is, in my mind, quite a bit better than Dreamweaver. My “problem” with CSS as opposed to tables is that with tables you can visualize what you are doing. CSS is a bit more programmatic. Expression helps a bit. If you are looking to save some money, and you use a PC, you should download Visual Web Developer. You can do some very advanced stuff with this program, and the interface is very much like Expressions. The price is right: free! However, Expression is more intuitive in how it handles CSS. It’s very interesting how Microsoft is starting to head into Adobe’s turf. Microsoft is working on equivalents to everything in Adobe’s product line. My long term bet is on Microsoft.

Guerilla Marketing

Just recently, I was wondering why we don’t see more of... ...this... ...this... ...this... ...this... and this here in the states. Yes, guerilla marketing. As you can see, all of these images don’t have their point of origin here in the USA. Then, I got my answer . Seriously, when looking at few of these campaigns, although they are clever and probably very effective, some of them seem destructive and disruptive. I think that American advertisers recognize this, and understood that American culture doesn’t have time or allow disruptions or annoyances, making it a tactic that is rarely used stateside. There are also probably some legal, or rather enforcement reasons that make it more common overseas. Any other thoughts? Everything with the exception of AXE via adgoodness . AXE via ibeliveinadv .
