We breezed past the $4,500 goal at warp speed, and $6,000 is right around the corner!
Research and Development
I have been doing a ton of research for this project. The extra funding here has given me some breathing room to learn as much as I can and pour the fruits of that knowledge into the end product! On the recommendation of a talented friend, I'm reading a couple of books, including The Elements of Typographic Style. I guess I should re-watch Helvetica too, right? (Well, that's worth it just for The Album Leaf soundtrack).
Since we hit the $4,500 goal, I'll be collecting addresses from $10-reward backers as well. You shall all receive a nice letter-sized print-out of the cheat sheet, along with a reasonably high-res image so you can print more if you'd like!
Thank you all so, so much, from the bottom of my heart! This is an amazing opportunity to give back to the community, and I can't wait to get everyone their posters. The more funding I get, the longer I'll be able to work on new designs and get everything spot-on. Keep up the amazing pace, everyone! Another design update will be coming soon.

Maybe I'm missing something, or the design could be improved by X and Y. There are no guarantees, here: I have strong feelings about the "right way" to make this poster, so I reserve the right to implement 0% of all offered advice. However, I do guarantee that I will listen to you in earnest before deciding what to do.
