        Steampunk Everything http://steampunkeverything.com What is Steampunk? Our steampunk definition is our way of expressing what we perceive as the best interpretation of this genre. We define Steampunk as a parallel reality of a world powered by steam. You have probably seen a Steampunk tattoo and wanted to know what was the style called. This sub genre of science fiction is intriguing and filled with so many levels of expression. Some people love the Steampunk style but actually never knew that it was an actual culture. The steampunk gears are the central focus of the steampunk jewelry and if you got to a steampunk convention you will see a ton of steampunk cosplay. The clothing has different levels. On one level there is authentic Victorian or Gothic clothes that are worn to embrace the period that energizes the culture.

          As the 90s came to a close, the business of music began to change profoundly. New technology allowed artists to record and produce their own music and music videos, and the internet became a free-for-all distribution platform for musicians to promote themselves to audiences across the world. The result was an influx of artists onto the cultural scene, and audiences were left wondering how to sort through them all. In this episode we discuss these massive changes, and reveal how music blogs and websites have arisen as the new arbiters of quality.

            Type is everywhere. Every print publication, website, movie, advertisement and public message involves the creation or selection of a fitting typeface. Online, a rich and artistic typographical culture exists, where typefaces are created and graphic design seeps in to every image. In episode 2 of Off Book, typeface designers Jonathan Hoefler and Tobias Frere-Jones outline the importance of selecting the right font to convey a particular feeling. Graphic designer Paula Scher talks about building identity in messaging, while Eddie Opara uses texture to create reaction. Infographic designers Julia Vakser and Deroy Peraza map complicated data sets into digestible imagery, mixing color, graphics and type.
