Just a head's up about a great article over at Jon Tan's website called Reversed Logotype. Explaining the practical problems that can surface when designing with mono type. Specifically when you have some black wording, then reverse it out, white type on black background.
An optical illusion creates the impression of the white elements appearing slightly thicker.
Jon writes an incredibly interesting and detailed article on this, and even offers up some practical tips to combat this illusion.

This is Part Two (Part One) of a collection of recent faces on MonoExpression. A fun photographic based creative side project that I set up last year.
It's goal: to collect as many black & white portraits of creative souls. For no other reason than, because I can, I love photography and I especially love black & white portraits. Here are ten portraits I picked to show you what is going on over there.
