shaharh asked: May I ask if the interest in stamps comes from enjoying them as collectibles or as appreciation to specific stamps' design ?

With stamps my attraction is mostly in the art and to their ephemeral nature. I’m a collector of many things, but stamps aren’t really one of them. I just happened to come into ownership of a decently sizable (to me at least) and varied collection and really fell in love with the art on a good handful of ‘em.

I actually hadn’t finished posting the whole collection, I might pick that back up this summer.

heptagram asked: Hey! I am a huge fan of the new typeface you posted as well as the mini site you made for it. I'm in the process of redesigning my portfolio site, and if I may ask, what resources did you use in order to create the site? I am especially interested in the script you created for the header.

Thanks dude, glad you like it!

As for the mini-site, it’s basically just a customized Bootstrap site. The header animation is accomplished with a mix of SVG and this neat Javascript library called Skrollr. Be aware though, Skrollr + SVG + mobile is pretty much a headache and a half.

Introducing Teip (alexjacque.com/teip)

Teip consists of 5 styles (Open, Closed, Lined, Inline A, Inline B) with three weights of each (Light, Regular, Bold).

I started this face a few years ago in 2012, where I put together the basic A-Z 0-9 alphabet in one style and then promptly filed it away and forgot about it. And then, about a month or so ago picked it back up, finished off the character set, and put together the 4 additional styles.

Technical notes: Initlally designed in Illustrator, built in Robofont, and kerning with MetricsMachine. Teip contains 339 glyphs supporting at least 39 languages. Plenty of technical knowledge gleaned from Tal Leming.

Stay tuned to learn where you can get it, in the mean time, go check out the mini-site I put together to show off the typeface.

New typeface coming down the pipeline. Gonna drop with three styles, three weights, and obliques too possibly.
