    Just toying with a wordmark idea.

    I took some liberties modifying the glyphs of the Rokkit font...

    To answer "Why?" — One of my pet peeves is when people use the (not a real) word "unsemantic" to tear down the work of other developers, or as justification why (not) to use a particular framework (or CMS).

    I'm sure you've heard some permutation of this before:

    "That class name is 'unsemantic' because..."

    What's funny to me is that class names cannot affect the semantics of a document, one way or another — except in the case of Microformats, which is a brilliantly clever hack, but not the original intent of class="foobar".

    To fill that need nowadays, there is RDFa, Schema.org, as well as ARIA roles to aid in accessibility.

    Very nice. For what it's worth, I would gladly gladly read a lengthy blog post on the topic if you have one in you. :)

    Not sure if you were looking for feedback, but I would suggest being consistent with the lower left serif on the stem of the 'n's. On the first, you have it chopped, on the second it's a ligature.

    Sean: Yeah, good point. I wanted to get the "u" and the "n" a bit closer together, so I lobbed a bit off each. But the "a" and the following "n" seemed like they looked cool connected.

    Clearly, I'm not a typographer (probably makes them angry/weep). :)

    Nathan:

    Not sure. Noticed it one day, and now I'm afraid to do anything related to "following," lest I lose my easter-egg. :)
