Well, Hello There!


Welcome! You've reached Portland web designer and graphic designer Adam Wood's shanty on the web. You my friend have found a great web site. Here you get to find out information about my web design, graphic desgin, my hobbies, and my interests while I'm living in Portland, OR. I'm currently a Portland web designer that works with all size business's from around the world. Check out my company Portland Web Design and Development to see all the services that I offer and more information.

My main focus is developing and designing web sites as well as graphic design. When I'm not geeking out on web design and graphics, I enjoy other passed times and hobbies. One of my other creative outlets is glass blowing. As a hobby for years I've created many unique, colorful pieces of art. You might also run into me at a show (music, theater, etc), dining out on some amazing Portland food, hiking up the trails around Portland, Oregon, or just out and about. Stick around and check out the site. I promise you'll find out a lot about Adam Wood.

The Anatomy of a Letter in Typography

August 15th, 2016

I didn’t know what to Google to find what a part of a single letter was.  After a bit of searching I found this very helpful graphic.  I bet most people know what a serif is but I had no idea that what the ear of a letter is or a spine.  Interesting typography stuff.
