Sharp Sans injects some much needed humanism into the Futura model. With its sheered terminals and true italics, Sharp Sans combines the appealing typographic compensation of the grotesque, with the plump circular bowls of the geometric. The result is a typeface suited for both text and display use that breaths life into the genre of the geometric sans.

http://letterboxd.com/trentwalton/year/2016/ (See also: 2014 & 2015) If you regularly log/add films (in addition to marking them as liked or watched), you are rewarded with a year in review page. In part, the pages inspired me to be more purposeful about what I watch. Instead of just using trailers and recommendation engines to find movies, I think more about influences, themes, and directors.
I’ve been thoroughly enjoying this new web series featuring rapper/chef Action Bronson. He seems to know his stuff culinarily, and his strong personality somehow disarms others—resulting in some surprisingly candid interviews.
Philip Walton does a great job of explaining the difference between native and preprocessor variables. He also outlines some potential uses in his post. I like that he calls out “CSS custom properties” as being the more accurate (and in my opinion, more intuitive) term …
CSS preprocessors are fantastic tools, but their variables are static and lexically scoped. Native CSS variables, on the other hand, are an entirely different kind of variable: they’re dynamic, and they’re scoped to the DOM. In fact, I think it’s confusing to call them variables at all. They’re actually CSS properties, which gives them an entirely different set of capabilities and allows them to solve an entirely different set of problems.
Pretty cool stuff—don’t miss the helpful CodePen demos he made to accompany the post. (1 & 2)
