Panic is Working on Coda Next, and A Second Video Game After Firewatch

Panic, one of the most popular developers for quality iOS and Mac software, have published their 2017 Report that takes a look at what has happened at the company last year.

There’s a lot to gather from there, so I recommend that you add the URL to your favorite “read later” app. But if you’re still in a hurry, here are some notable bits from it:

The company released Transmit 5 and shipped a record total of 39 releases across all their apps. They also improved their QA process and their help library, started releasing tutorial videos on their official YouTube channel and also improved the infrastructure powering their websites.

In the coming months, Panic will publish Firewatch for Nintendo Switch and work is underway for “Coda Next”, which is what they’re calling “a total rewrite of our macOS version of Coda”. Last but not the least, there’s this:

A Second Game

Soon we will also announce the second video game we’ll be publishing! The follow-up to our hit game Firewatch will be a new game from a different studio that is not at all like Firewatch but is absolutely delightful. Keep an eye on our blog and Twitter for the big reveal.

Panic is one of the most revered companies out there, and I can’t wait to see what 2018 is going to be like for them.


Meister is a Custom Typeface for Jägermeister by NM type

NM type is a type foundry made up of a creative collaboration between Noel Pretorius and María Ramos that is known for creating Kinetic, a retail typeface in 2017. For their next project, the duo was tasked to create a Meister — a custom typeface for Jägermeister.

Meister is a new typeface designed by NM type for Jägermeister’s global communication. The custom typeface gives the brand a unique voice in all media channels. There are three key design features that make Meister typeface unique: the 45° angle cuts and diagonal strokes, the flattened curves, and the blocky appearance.

The typeface is part of Jägermeister’s new global identity and advertising campaign, marking the first major rebrand in its history. The creative platform by ad agency Opperman Weiss ‘Be the Meister’ is currently being rolled out worldwide in TVC, print and web.

I’m off to take a shot.
