Rufina was as tall and thin as a reed. Elegant, but with that distance which well defined forms seem to impose. Her voice, however, was sweeter, closer and when she spoke her name, like a slow whisper, one felt like what she had come to say could be read in her image.
Rufina’s story can only be told through a detour because her origin does not coincide with her birth. Rufina was born on a Sunday afternoon while her father was drawing black letters on a white background and her mother was trying to join those same letters to form words that could tell a story. But her origin goes much further back and thatís why she is pierced by a story which precedes her, even though it is not her own.
Maybe her origin can be traced back to that autumn night in which that tall man with that distant demeanor ran into that woman with sweet smile and elegant aspect. He looked at her in such a way that he was trapped by that gaze and even though they found no words to say to each other and they stayed in silence, somehow some words leaked into that gaze because since that moment they were never apart again.
Later, after they started talking, projects started coming up and then coexistence and arguments, routines and mismatches. But in that chaos of crossed words in their life together, something was stable through the silence of the gazes. In those gazes the silent words sustained that indescribable love that they didnít even try to understand.
And in one of those silences, Rufina appeared, when that man told that woman that he needed a text to try out his new font, and she saw him look at her with that same fascination of the first time, and she started to write something with those forms that he was giving her as a gift.
Rufina was as tall and thin as a reed, wrote her mother when Rufina was born.

DESIGN TRENDS - Flat UI
Perhaps an older design trend, Flat UI is design based on simple, flat web layouts without the decoration of shadows, textures, and other frills. The trend has leaped into popularity with big-name companies such as Apple and Facebook taking this trend on board.
These types of designs often feature plenty of white, black, trendy colours and large-scale photography in blocky sections, sometimes in modular/grid layouts.
The cause of this trend may be due to the breakaway from skeuomorphism and realistic textures, UI elements. Skeuomorphic design had its place in the early days of smart phone UI design as a way of easing users into new technologies, much like Comic Sans was to typography. However now that generations know what what to expect from a user interface, realistic elements have no place in UI design.
While I appreciate the minimalistic and clean approach to web design, like all trends, it runs the risk of creating websites that lack personality and give a sense of sameness that could be found anywhere else.
To celebrate the completion of Kill La Kill, I collected some Fan Arts that I’ve drawn.
It’s been a year drawing Ryuko, I’m so sorry that I can’t see her anymore.
I’ll update the last one soon.
Mariné is a geometric sans but with the softness of humanistic strokes. It’s mild contrast and multiple different styles allow Mariné to work well as both a text and display font. It also includes an Up version and calligraphic features that add a touch of informality. Mariné is available in an extended family and is the close cousin of Amelia (available at MyFonts.com). All differences between Mariné and Amelia appear in the italic and Up versions.
