“Colophon” comes from a Greek word meaning ‘a summit,’ ‘top,’ ‘finishing.’ It is a description of the details and methods behind a publication, often found on the last few pages of a book.


The TDAT logo was hand drawn by Nate and the tagline makes use of a custom typeface crafted by Nate called Nate's Notes (you can buy it here for $5). This site utilizes @font-face tags to enable unique typography on the web. Navigation and headings also make use of Nate's custom typeface. Additional headings utilize League Gothic, a free typeface originally designed by Morris Fuller Benton in 1903 and available from The League of Moveable Type. Body text for the site is set in Helvetica Neue.


Salli and Nate worked with Neoteric Design to develop the redesign of They Draw & Travel in the Spring of 2011. Neoteric redesigns websites with a focus on customer needs, site goals, ease of use and engaging design.


We used Illustrator, Photoshop, and TextMate to create this site. The site runs on Ruby on Rails. Content is maintained using Refinery. It is authored using HTML5, and complies with web standards as set by the W3C.
