Draw massive amounts of attention to the topics that really matter in the world.
Flynn Design's insight:

When I see the weight that our current world affairs is having on our children, it causes massive concern for their well-being. But lately, I have noticed them actively seeking out the positive for inspiration and finding it, and my heart is uplifted! This is one source that my daughter follows and shared with me. Very "Upworthy" indeed!

Alas, I have found a kindred spirit in Théo Le Du Fuentes!

A Brief History of Type | I love typography, the typography and fonts blog | Flynn Design | Scoop.it

In the previous installment of this series, we took a closer look at Transitional style typefaces, so-called because they mark a transition from the former Old Style types—epitomized by Baskerville—and the subject of today’s brief history, the Moderns, also known as Didone (the terms Modern and Didone are used synonymously throughout this article).

"The World Before Her" Director Nisha Pahuja talks about the experience of sharing her film in Mississippi.

Directr Nisha Pahuja traveled with Film Forward to Mississippi to screen her documentary, "The World Before Her," a film that chronicles a beauty pageant in ...
Flynn Design's insight:

We had the pleasure of viewing "The World Before Her", Nisha Pahuja's film that is on the brink of launching in India. After the screening at Duling Hall, part of Sundance's FilmForward program which is designed to engage the audience in meaningful reflective dialogue, Nisha spoke about her process and time in India. It was indeed an impactful night on all who were able to attend.

    Nisha's film enlightens us on the struggles and challenges that young girls and families are facing in India today. And, on a broader spectrum, connects and empowers us all through the understanding that women and girls in all countries face similar challenges.

#StuffWeLike What do you do in YOUR spare time? | Flynn Design | Scoop.it
Flynn Design's insight:

Fun, but awkward. Unsettling, actually. A beautiful work of Trompe l’oeil! As designers, we feel and think our way through our creations. Each typeface has its own character and personality and plays a vital role in the identity and communication of the piece at hand. By seeing one font spelled out but substituted with another, my brain tells me it  should be one thing, but my eyes see another. Love that the designer did this…”just to stay busy for a few days.” We love type!
