Episode 1: Replacing Your Eyes [mp3 link released on July 24, 2012]
We’re posting our pilot episode of On the Grid! We’ve been recording the show for a few weeks now, we’ve done tests that will probably never see the light of day, and we’re finally ready to launch episode one.
We plan on using the show to discuss design through recent events and news. Hopefully you’ll enjoy a mix of design conversation, joking side comments, and discussion of the issues that affect us as designers.
We’re very excited to start this new podcast, and we know it will be may a bit of a process to find our voice, so we can appreciate a good to critique. If you have some thoughtful feedback, leave a comment here, email us (mail at onthegrid dot co), or even call us if want us to possibly play your comments on the show: (973) ON-GRID-2

I’m starting a podcast called On the Grid with Andy Mangold and Dan Auer to discuss design news and topics.
We’ve decided to make the logo design process public and up for critique, so if you’re a designer and have a moment, take a look at the studies, follow us for new ideas, and post your critiques in the comments.
Hey, I love the Raleway font you created, however the weight is too thin for practical use as body text on a website. Any chance of getting it in larger weights (regular/bold) as well as in different styles (italic/oblique)?
Pablo Impallari is actually working on expanding it to 9 weights
no italics yet, but it is open source….
