10ft Deep —

This photo was taken three years ago on a crisp sunny 'fall' day in Collingwood with all my design school mates as we all took a much needed break from our folio builds. Needless to say, an objectively brighter April day.

After getting stupid-delicious croissants at Lune, we strolled over to check out this fun and playful mural-in-progress by Spenceroni! Definitely go check out his latest works.

In light of the 'lighter' side of things, this issue is dedicated to giving your mind a break and sinking into that short-sleeve, breezy-bike-ride feel. Have some fun playing with these:

The Bézier Game 
A fun way to hone in on your pen-tool game, or to learn how to use a very fundamental design skill! All experience-levels welcome here.
Munsell Hue Test
Here's a color one for ya! Get those sunset gradients in their place with this color-hue sorting game.
Times New Arial
A variable font concept by Liebermann Kiepe Reddemann (produced by Elias Hanzer) that emphasizes the hybrid between two common fonts. Have a play with this fun variable mixer!
So I'm sure y'all are masters of getting cozy at home by now, but how cozy are your letters!? Test your eyeballs and kerning intuitions with this fun one!
