Jeff Croft

I’m a product designer in Seattle, WA. I recently worked at Simply Measured, and previously co-founded Lendle.

Some of my past clients include Facebook, Microsoft, Yahoo, and the University of Washington.

I’ve authored two books on web and interactive design and spoken at dozens of conferences around the world.

I’m currently accepting contract work and considering full-time opportunities.

    Seven new positions open at World Online

    We’re hiring. Yes, again. And this time it’s for a bunch of people.

    Seven, to be exact (well, six more…one of them I already mentioned). If you’re counting, this is the third time since I was hired in January that I’ve posted about us adding staff. We’re growing at a terrifically fast pace, largely because of the success of Ellington, our commercial, Django-based content management system.

    We’ve got a page listing the jobs up for your perusal. Some of them don’t yet have full job descriptions, but they should be added soon. Hop over there, or keep reading for more Jeff-flavored info…

    An open letter to Apple and Microsoft

    Mr. Gates and Mr. Jobs:

    A few days ago, Andrei Herasimchuk (whom I consider a friend and admire quite a lot) posted an open letter to John Warnock, CEO of Adobe Systems, with regard to typography on the web. Andrei proposed that Adobe, being the license holder of several of the classic typefaces, “consider releasing eight to twelve core fonts into the public domain.” Andrei’s list of suggestions include Warnock Pro, Jenson Pro, Caslon Pro, and more.

    While these are great typefaces and would certainly be an incredible addition to any web designer’s toolkit, I can’t help but think the request is a bit too idealistic to have a chance of really happening (Adobe, please feel free to prove me wrong). Not only do these typefaces make up a decent revenue stream for Adobe that would be lost, but Adobe also has a vested interested in a little web technology called Flash, and may well believe that making great type available in HTML and CSS-based web pages could hinder Flash adoption amongst designers who demand great typography. And I know neither of you want Adobe coming to the web’s rescue.
