Typesetting Tip of the Day
Designers know that the "edgy, roughed up look" is quite in right now, but creating this look takes WAY more time to execute. One thing I discovered is that it's pretty easy to obtain this look for type by altering the size of individual letters. For example, you have the word, "Designer." Make all the type 32 point. Then make the "D" 20 point, the "e" 38 point, the "s" 22 point, and so forth. Be very random with it. Don't worry about kerning/tracking, just play with point-size and you'll get some cool effects.
