Dispatches from the Spry Hive: Week 24

Posted by Ken Moire & filed under Tips.

This post is part of a weekly series featuring the latest buzz around the Spry Hive.

We are skipping Spry news to acknowledge the terrible events that happened in Florida this week. We, along with many others, are mourning the senseless loss of lives in Orlando. Spry Digital embraces the idea of strength in diversity. Our thoughts go out to the victims of the LGBT community, Christie Grimmie, and all of the families and friends that have been hurt by these acts of hate.

We can always do better. Remember to celebrate the heroic acts of love that occur on a daily basis, and never react to hate with hate.

Now on to more lighthearted fare…

Typography

We applaud Google’s redesign of Google Fonts. If you geek out on such things, here’s the case study of the redesign.

Bungee Vertical Fonts

Vertical type on signage and other projects is a necessity at times, but most fonts are not designed for vertical orientation. Bungee was created specifically for multi-color vertical typography.

Web Design & Development

The CSSConf Nordic 2016 happened and there’s some terrific talks posted online for your consumption.

If you enjoy using Tower for Git (and we do), also check out SourceTree by Atlassian, a free Git and Mercurial client for Windows and Mac.

Entrepreneurship

Zenefits, the popular online HR onboarding company, has been experiencing some growing pains as of late. Now they’re doubling down on turning the business around, asking their employees to get on board or to take “The Offer”.

Misc

Cable network Adult Swim continues to expand their influence in the digital space with this highly visual playlist that promises 25 tracks in 25 weeks.

This July fourth, NASA has plans to make fireworks of their own as they send the Juno spacecraft within 2,900 miles of Jupiter’s atmosphere.

The Bloomberg team continues to make web properties that are the source of much debate within our team. You either love them or you hate them, and the Global Tech Issue is no exception.

The world also lost a musical great this week. Chips Moman, the Memphis and Nashville hitmaker, has passed at the age of 79.


Remember to be good to each other. We will see you all next Friday for another edition of the Spry Hive!
