Inspired by a movie that I very much liked! ;) So I just re-created this logo with vectors.

On a //sideline: I think this is one of the beautiful examples of clean design, that is simple, yet powerful. And in this case, it carries also a very subtle (double) meaning, that falls perfectly in place in its original context. I do not know who was the designer, but I admire his work… :)

So… Instead of explaining… what if I ask: What is this? :-)

Hint #1: I re-created this logo, not invented it!
Hint #2: Inspired by a movie!
Hint #3: 1980′s is the time period.

Anyone? ;-)

This is the version of my wife, Ani — she “cooked” it using my ingredients. ;-)

Who cooks better? ;-)

EDIT (2010/Oct/20): One more variant, even better (this time, slightly edited by me):

Not sure why my “kitchen idea” continues today, but a fact is a fact: now I have not only a frying pan but also a big ceramic stove and some fried eggs! ;)

Interesting (even for me) to see how a tiny Power button can evolve into some kitchen utensils… :)))

(Larger size of this illustration is available, too — just click the 640×640 image above.)

An update for my previous idea… don’t ask me why, but my Power button evolved into a Tefal pan with aluminium bottom! ;-)

Playing with some power button options… (inspired by this dribbble shot).

Typeface vs. Font

Friday, October 15th, 2010

TYPEFACE:

A typeface is a single set of characters that share stylistic unity. A typeface usually comprises an alphabet of letters, numbers, punctuation and diacritical marks.

FONT:

Old school typographers defined a font as a complete character set of a particular typeface in one size. When type made the leap to the digital realm, a font became an electronic file that rendered the typeface in all sizes.

(via FontShop)

It’s so nice someone can explain the difference so clearly and simply! :)

Some say, by imitation, sometimes we learn the best. Well, today then, I tried to learn from Tim Van Damme — I avow my results are not as impressive as his, but I tried very hard! :)
