After the matrix is slipped into the bottom of the two-part type mold, the mold is filled with the molten lead alloy to cast a piece of type. After
the lead alloy cools, the type #mold is opened and the type is removed.

Are Wind in the business of mobile phones or brown coughs?
Spotted this awful logo in a supermarket in Italy. It seems to balance an icon that looks like a minimalist arse over the brand name 'wind' a word often associated with flatulence. Not the best combination!
A fantastic example of poor brand design.
Great design is everywhere you look in Italy.
When I cycled over the boarder the first thing I noticed was the condensed font they use on the road signs.
The font used is called 'Alfabeto Stretto' and belongs to a typeface inspired by the British transport alphabet.
It looks great but from a distance readability isn't great. Functionality sacrificed for aesthetics in true Italian style!

“I Stand Amazed in the Presence,” also known as “How Marvelous” or “My Savior’s Love,” was written, both lyrics and melody in 1905 by Charles Gabriel. He was an Iowa native, showing a talent and love for music at an early age.
Gabriel’s profession became editing gospel song books and contributing numerous hymns for various publications. He’s credited with between 7000 and 8000 songs, thirty-five gospel song collections, Sunday school song books, collections for men’s and women’s choirs, numerous cantatas, including 41 Christmas cantatas, and music education texts. He also wrote under numerous pseudonyms, making it challenging to determine the exact number of songs he wrote.
Chris Tomlin would later popularize his arrangement of this hymn, entitled “I Stand Amazed.” Tomlin’s contemporary approach couldn't be more fitting, knowing that Gabriel’s own hymns had reflected a significant change from the gospel music of the 1800s.

Century Gothic is strongly influenced by the font Futura, though with a higher x-height, and its design history also derives from two separate typefaces intended as Futura competitors. It is a digital typeface that has never been made into actual foundry type.
