When it comes to the design profession, there's a long and complicated history of "trendy" and "disruptive" design.But a new survey of more than 1,000 designers has found that a lot of the current focus on the latter is actually misguided, and the former is the wrong direction."It's easy to think about design as something that only needs to be used in the context of your brand," says Jason Luscomb...
Google’s cool text blog has just launched a new, modern, cool design template.
The template is designed by the world-renowned digital illustrator Paul Rand and it’s available on the blog’s site.
Rand’s template is a mash-up of traditional font styles and colors.
You can check out the original template, or you can customize it to your liking.
Here are a few of the highlights.
The font is designed with modern font weights like sans-serif, italic, sans-monospace, serif and sans-latin, which are also standard fonts on the Google+ platform.
You’ll see italics, bold, underline, underlined, understretch, and the wordmark all in a bold, solid, solid-colored style.
You also can choose from six different font styles: monospace, sans serif, seriff, monospace sans- serif sans- latin, sans monospace italic.
Google also added a new font option for text boxes, which can be set to a bold black or a lighter gray.
The new cool design also has two new backgrounds for text, a solid black and a lighter grey.
In addition to the cool design templates, Google also launched a Chrome extension for the cool text app, which lets you customize the font, colors and spacing of text boxes.
It’s available for download here.
