Truly an amazing tutorial. I haven’t read something that blends art and science to an astounding outcome in quite while. It’s definitely worth reading through just to gain inspiration of how you can look to math and science for wonderous results in your designs. Along with that, it demonstrates a clever technique to make repeated patterns not appear like patterns to the naked eye.
If you’re doing web design and not using Fontspring yet, shame on you. While TypeKit and a bunch of the other great web font services that have cropped over the years are great, Fontspring hits that sweet spot for me of not relying on someone else to host the fonts and thusly charging me monthly with usage caps and having a great collection of high quality fonts to choose from. The fact they’ve figured out the tricky stuff for me of finding the winning font-face stack goes a long way too. I can’t say enough about these guys. I used them on Widgetbox and it worked out great.
