Typography Inspired by Chocolate and Coffee

devilishly tempting photo of chocolate by john loo on flickr 400 sizeTypography and design quite literally color your reader’s experience of everything you write.

I wanted the colors on this page to remind you of chocolate and coffee: rich blackish browns; softer reddish-browns; and café chalkboard grays. My idea was to imitate the sensation of sitting in a clean coffeehouse — because don’t we all like that blend of relaxation, caffeination, and conversation?

Thanks for visiting my new home on the web. There’s not much to see here yet — I’m still unpacking.

If you’re looking for something to read, you might like song written, where I write about the craft of songwriting from a literate and literary perspective.

And if you happen to be a musician or a writer, I’m also teaching the third edition of an online course called The Art of Daily Practice. It’s aimed at helping musicians and lyricists design a practice routine that they can actually stick to.

Thanks again for visiting.
