Neighborland

Categories WebsitePosted on

Neighborland is a fun and easy tool for people to shape future businesses and services in their neighborhoods.

Inspired by I Wish This Was, this project takes that idea a few steps further to help collect demand and bring people together, so the future of our communities better reflects our desires today. It connects residents who want things with likeminded people, initiatives, and resources. It’s a valuable poll for civic leaders and developers to assess what residents want in vacant real estate and existing public spaces. And it promotes entrepreneurship by revealing neighborhood demands and proving there is a viable customer base for new businesses to open.

The project has been a big team effort led by Dan Parham and Tee Parham with integral development by James Reeves, Alan Williams, and Chris Palmatier.

Newswordy

Categories WebsitePosted on

Buzzwords are frequently used in news media. These are words that do not typically occur in everyday speech, but are common among newscasters, talking heads, and pundits on cable news.

These ‘news words’ are accepted by audiences for their implied meaning. But often loaded words are misused or used out of context. The actual definitions can be different than what is implied.

Every weekday, Newswordy will celebrate one of these words.

Along with each word is a definition, a quote with its use (or misuse) in the media, and a news and Twitter feed on the subject.

A unique color is algorithmically generated from the characters in each word to create its background color.

The type is set in Standard CT from Castle Type, a revival of the popular 1950s Swiss typeface, with similar attributes to Akzidenz-Grotesk (a precursor to Helvetica). Standard was also the typeface originally chosen by Massimo Vignelli for the New York City subway system in the late 1960s.

Newswordy is designed and curated by Josh Smith.
