Ahoy hoy! Welcome to Found Friday Vol 52, where we have the following: a website with free, well-made subtle Photoshop patterns; an article on typography and the role hierarchy plays; a site where you can get huge, easily mountable wall murals; a Mac app for picking colors live off the web; and an overview of web font services in a nice little table.
Subtle Patterns just launched this week, and because of all the demand, their server is going really slow. So be patient (I imagine this isn’t helping). Anyway, the site has a bunch of great, subtle patterns for web designers. Definitely worth a look.
Hierarchy plays a huge role in good typography – this article breaks it down with examples, images and well-written content.
Is your workspace boring? Spice it up with these wall murals. You can use your own shots or their artwork; you can go huge or small; you can apply them yourself. A cost-effective way to make your workspace a bit more interesting. (via uncrate)
From their site: “ColorSnapper is an easy-to-use tool for quickly finding out the color of any pixel on the screen. It is activated via a system-wide hotkey, giving you a magnifying loupe to easily pick the pixel you need. The resulting color is copied to clipboard in a format of your preference.”
There are an ever-growing number of services out there designed to help you implement new fonts on your website designs. This website organizes the information, the pros & cons of each, in a nice little package. (via swiss miss)
See you next week!
