Choosing the right font is a crucial step in graphic and web design. Whether it be a website that you’re designing, or simple a homemade greeting card, the typography used can either make, or break, the message that you intend to convey.
Calligraphy in typography adds an element of sophistication and class. The word itself is derived from the Greek words “kallos,” which means beauty, and “graphe,” which means writing. It is no wonder that such font type is popular to use to heighten and make elegant any design project that is being worked on.

“Now boarding all rows.” To get in the air, you have to choose the right airline for you. Factors such as destination, cost, and bonuses are taken into careful consideration when making the decision on which carrier you will fly. How do we make these choices?

Thanksgiving is nearly here! That means Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, football games, great food, and lots of guests. Typically these guests are the ones we put off seeing until the holidays, but ones we nevertheless want to impress.
