Dana requested a button for a series on settled science. Here they are, larger button for within the blog post:
And tiny button for the left margin once the series is started:
I kind of like the simplicity of this design. The inspiration was the look of Newton's Naturalis Principia. I took this grungey background, an old sketch of Newton's orbits and this beautifully grungey old font (using the big character spacing used on the Principia cover). I know most of you probably aren't that interested in how it came together but as an old graphic designer, I get much enjoyment out of this kind of thing so just indulge me :-)
Very nice John!
Beautiful, in a scientific way.
