Launched in 2010, it has since been a repository of inspirations and links related to design, architecture, art, film, literature, music, photography, and, of course, New York City.

We can pick apart a Frankenfont like Roboto on Typographica, but we don’t always articulate to readers what the problem with it is as an application. I think part of the hesitation is fear: fear of tearing down 
figures who have “made it” outside the design profession, who engage with social and economic problems, and who have created positive showcases for design. All of these people and projects bring more attention to design, which is wonderful, but not if it means the end of analysis.
