Can't say that artist Tim Kowles created this series of drawings produced by attaching drawing implements to the tips of tree branches, because really, the trees did. But it was an inspired idea.

"The wind’s effects on the tree, recorded on paper like signatures, each drawing reveals the different qualities and characteristics of each tree."

Funded by a Kickstarter project, font designers Jeremy Dooley and Robbie de Villiers and graphic designer DJ Trischler created 'Chatype' for the city of Chattanooga.

Their goal is to reflect the character of Chattanooga and get folks excited about the city while celebrating “ingenuity and innovation.”

Branding a city with a specified font is akin to creating a flag they say, just this one will get seen a lot more.

Common Birthday Chart

According to a heat map created by Matt Stiles, a data journalist with the NPR, September 16 is the single most common birthday for Americans between the ages of 14 and 40.

On the other end of the spectrum, the least common date of birth, not surprisingly, is February 29, which comes every four years during a leap year.  The second least popular birthday falls on Christmas, December 25, followed by January 1.
