The TDAC logo was hand drawn by Nate and the tagline makes use of a custom typeface crafted by Salli called Salli Scribbles. It is available for $5 on Nate and Salli's website, Studio SSS. This site utilizes @font-face tags to enable unique typography on the web. Navigation and headings also make use of Salli'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.
