Working on layouts for the help page

    Top: My idea to explain dingbats. In Illustrator with notes. Put it in Dropbox

    Bottom: Megan’s gif. Rather than do all the letters it just spells out Dingbats

  2. Today I’ve been working on the free font finds page. Firstly by gathering content and then putting it in to the layout we agreed on. The button size is 55x55px (clickable) and 45x45px (non-clickable).

    Anyone know any good free font sites?

    Today I’m creating the illustrations for the A-Z of type section. Click on the images for captions.

    Right from the beginning of being involved with STF and seeing the logo for the first time, we wanted to create a 3D version. 

    However this has proved really difficult as on closer inspection the logo is NOT a cube. Megan created a mockup using board and masking take to work out the logistics and to get an idea of size. Were hoping to get the final thing made of wood and roughly 6x6x6cm. We have a helper, Douglas, from 2nd year who kindly adjusted the measurements and today I did an actual size mock-up with my papercraft skills. 

    We worked out that because the logo is only 3 sides of a ‘cube’ and the ‘S’ is the same upside down, you could create it double sided. But after doing the test today it adds an extra block at the bottom which makes the ‘F’ less obvious…..

    “The strategic positioning ‘Strong Together’ was visually articulated in the overlapping of the individual letters of the brandmark. A broad spectrum of colours was used to represent core internal pillars of love, hope, strength, wisdom and belonging creating a positive brand expression for both internal and external audiences. Developing the system further, supergraphics were created using enlarged, cropped sections of the brand device. This strong visual language and colour system has been applied to all facets of the business from online, office interiors, merchandise and wayfinding signage.”

    So after designing the flat layouts yesterday, I spent last night putting together quick layouts in InDesign just using boxes and placeholder text, to see how each of the layouts would work onscreen. 

    We have chose to use different fonts, rather than the usual Enriquetta, as it doesn’t really work as a headline font onscreen. Also it doesn’t really fit in with the style of the app that we are working towards.

    We have chosen to use the Cassannet family of fonts and Intro as the headline fonts. We will our usual Gill Sans Light as our body fonts; and also Miso as an alternative.

    I think that it is looking really good so far, and designing for iPad is a really good size to work at. Now we need to work on the actual content and begin to add image, text and the icons that George has designed.

  3. Icons
I did an online search for free icons but none seemed to be right or consistant enough for what we wanted. These 2 sets show the experimenting with flat edged and rounded styles.
