• They’re too short.

• They’re confusing

Prototypo features a streamlined way of editing typefaces with over twenty parameters to modify all built-in glyphs at once. The application brings a whole new approach of type design by letting you focus on shape design, integrating historical, mathematical and visual rules of this discipline to automate repetitive tasks.

7 Simple Steps to Resolve Any Conflict Like a Zen Master http://ow.ly/vLyMA

"If you’re like most people, you dread conflict. Your ears burn and you start to sweat just thinking about it. It’s a combat zone, where somebody wins and somebody loses. Somebody’s right, and somebody’s wrong. Maybe you avoid conflict, fearing hurt feelings, bruised egos and lost tempers. Or do you go at it like a blood sport, so focused on winning that you take out anyone in your path?

But you may have seen a few people who are able to handle conflict differently. They stay cool without stonewalling, With their guidance, hidden problems come to light. Innovative solutions develop to resolve issues that festered for years. These Conflict Masters even manage to turn a conflict into a pleasurable experience.

How do they do it?"
