They won't want to pay more than $20 an hour but you should be charging more depending on your experience.

Besides the font, the spacing is kinda fucked up too.

This is more entertaining than the actual news

Its because free fonts don't contain ligatures and I don't think MS Word lets you kern.

At least they had the foresight to use a totally free font, part of me was expecting to see it listed only as "free for personal use"

I guess it would, at least now. It's been over a decade since I tried to "design" something using a word processing program.

also the S in NEXUS should align with the serif in the N of PANOPTICON

I like that it doesn't align, the "the" doesn't align to the beginning.

I love the font, I actually found it by taking a quiz by pentagram design, which font are you.

I also like it with the word panopticon because of the circles, punny.

Juliana that swooping "a" descender is awfully willy wonka-ish

But it's a million times better overall than what they're using. Odalisque wouldn't look so horrible if the rest of it was appropriately designed.

Ya it is lmao! Billy is sorta willy wonka-ish though. But there is a normal a in the set too. I just used the swashes because of the current font they have.

This font looks good in lowercase too. I will make one in a minute.

that thing he's wearing is retarded but i do think it's interesting that the official site of "the smashing pumpkins" has one picture of bill, and a picture of his cat

is the cat in the band?
