In honor of the HIGHLY ANTICIPATED series finale of one of my FAVORITE TV shows, and as an excuse to blog about How I Met Your Mother on a blog that is supposed to be strictly design and work related, I bring you WHO’S YOUR MOMMY. I cannot to wait to find out in 81 minutes, WHO is the mother of Ted Moseby‘s children… I admit, I wasn’t an early adopter of How I Met Your Mother, but I did just watch/rewatch the whole series in it’s entirety (I wasn’t just wasting time, I was multi-tasking, probably making something like this…) and in chronological order so that I was ready to watch the finale in REAL TIME. I think that makes me a legit fan, so don’t get on my case about “not watching from the start.” I came around. That’s what’s important. Anyways enough talk and more typography.

Okay UPDATE (just moments after posting this)… I think it’s just the SEASON finale tonight… This is good and bad. Good: more How I Met Your Mother! Bad: I want to know the mother! AND this piece of typography was supposed to be timely!!! I could still be wrong about being wrong, and have been right all along… But we’ll find out in 32 minutes.

UPDATE AGAIN. I was totally wrong! There’s a whole season still to come! Ooops.

I recently heard about this project that SOTA (The Society of Typographic Aficionados) is organizing. It’s called Font Aid V: Made For Japan. SOTA is asking designers to submit glyphs which they feel represent Japan. SOTA will then compile all those submissions into a font which will be sold with proceeds going toward relief efforts in Japan after the devastating tsunami and earthquake this year.

This is the fifth SOTA has organized a project like this (hence the “V” in “Font Aid V”). As described on their website, previous Font Aids have raised funds to help war and disaster refugees, September 11 victims, and also after the earthquake in Haiti in 2010.

Below is one of the glyphs that I submitted. You can read more about my submission here. And more about typesociety.org here.
