Readymag, the design tool for creating websites without coding, has been honored with the Red Dot Award for Brands and Communication Design 2023. The award-winning project, “The Faces Behind Typefaces,” is a digital editorial shedding light on the significance of the Type Directors Club (TDC) and its medalists in the global design and typography community. The announcement of the winners took place on November 3, 2023, at the Red Dot Gala in Berlin.

“The Faces Behind Typefaces” received the Red Dot Award in the Brands & Communication Design category as a Webspecial project. 

“The ‘Faces Behind Typefaces’ digital editorial has found resonance within the global design and typography community,” says Diana Kasay, co-founder and CEO of Readymag. “The Red Dot Award is our common win. It was born as a result of fruitful collaboration with TDC, and it vividly illustrates Readymag’s goal — to push the limits of web design together with creators. This project serves as a clear demonstration of Readymag’s creative potential as an innovative tool for storytelling and design.”

“We’re proud that The Faces Behind Typefaces has documented some of the greats of the profession and provides an engaging, informative, lasting forum for their high-regarded creative thinking and work,” commented Carol Waller, executive director of the Type Directors Club, the leading organization for the global type community and part of The One Club for Creativity. “The greats featured in The Faces Behind Typefaces are truly global in stature and influence, and many of their creations are still in use today. Highlighting and celebrating these people behind their great work is a critical way of informing and educating the current and next generation of creatives in general, and typographers and type designers in particular.”  

Designed to foster meaningful dialogue between generations of typographers, “The Faces Behind Typefaces” connects prominent figures in the field of type design. “The Faces Behind Typefaces” is a deep-dive into the impact and legacy of the TDC Medal and past medalists consisting of seven chapters.

An international center for the arts is coming to Naples, Florida. Benefiting the lives of exceptional young classical singers from around the world and further enriching the cultural fabric of the Naples community, Theater in the Garden is excited to announce its plans in partnership with the Luciano Pavarotti Foundation.

It is planned to be a multi-purpose space designed to honor the legacy and vision of the world-renowned tenor, Luciano Pavarotti, while also fulfilling the long-standing need for such a multi-use facility in Naples. The property will embrace a 900-seat state-of-the-art indoor theater, an outdoor amphitheater in a landscaped garden setting, the Luciano Pavarotti Museum, The Luciano Pavarotti International Voice Competition, and Luciano’s Restaurant. It will be the first Foundation location to be established outside Modena, Italy.

“I am thrilled the Luciano Pavarotti Foundation will soon have a permanent presence in the United States, especially one in a cultural center as rich and diverse as Naples,” commented the maestro’s widow, Nicoletta Pavarotti. “The city has much in common with many of those in our homeland. Naples has vigorously embraced and encouraged the performing and visual arts from its inception a hundred years ago, wisely seeing them as the bedrock of a cultivated and envied civilization.”

The Academy is aligned with the maestro’s wish to see the continued advancement of the appreciation of all forms of vocal performance and the support, encouragement, and development of the next generation of exceptional young singers, especially those from underprivileged backgrounds. The Academy will provide students with voice, acting, and diction lessons, and provide opportunities to showcase their talent through public performances.

The state-of-the-art indoor theater and the outdoor amphitheater in the surrounding gardens will be available for use by the Academy and other performing arts groups based in Collier County. 

Luciano Pavarotti’s theatrical costumes worn during his starring roles in the great opera houses of the world, and posters, photographs, and a lifetime of memorabilia will be part of the Pavarotti Museum as well as other collectibles from his legendary “Three Tenors” and “Pavarotti and Friends” tours, memories from his special friends as film director Franco Zeffirelli, Princess Diana, Frank Sinatra, and collaborations with such pop icons as Sting, Lionel Richie, and U2.

Estimated to cost $25-30 million, Theater in the Garden will serve as a cultural epicenter for generations. It will host various performing arts organizations, providing a place for both artists to showcase their talents and for the community to enjoy the arts like never before in Southwest Florida.

Through Theater in the Garden, Pavarotti’s musical legacy will profoundly impact the cultural arts of Southwest Florida and well beyond. Those interested in supporting the development of Theater in the Garden or donating are encouraged to contact Robert Kovacevich, Development Director, at [email protected].

The conceptual team is made up of

  • Nicoletta Pavarotti, President of The Luciano Pavarotti Foundation
  • Livio Ferrari, Director of Theater in the Garden Inc.
  • Robert Kovacevich, Development Director of Theater in the Garden Inc.
  • Tim Ronalds Architects

Author Joe Furnari Releases New Book ‘Ludicrous Returns vs. the Market’

Gatekeeper Press is pleased to announce “Ludicrous Returns vs. the Market” launch in November 2023. This book introduces a new groundbreaking approach for investing. Author Joe Furnari is an experienced investor with an MBA in Finance and also an Engineer with a passion for data analysis.

Book Highlights:

  • New investment approach is based on “patterns that predict consistently over the long term”
  • Stock Investment model developed for optimizing performance on stock investments
  • Market timing model developed for optimizing performance on S&P500 equity index investments

I had a vision to earn game-changer returns vs. the market by seeking patterns that predict performance” – Joe Furnari

The book describes development of the stock investment model, which includes an in-depth analysis conducted on stock patterns over a 50-year period, from 1970 to 2020. This analysis led to the discovery of “patterns that predict consistently over the long term.”  These predictive patterns were also found to be common across stocks of multiple industries and market caps. The book defines these patterns and shows illustrative examples of the high correlation to predict performance.

To prove the stock model effectiveness, a 14-year simulation test from 2007 to 2020. The test results were astonishing. Average annual return was 44.5%, compared to S&P 500 11.1%. This is not a day trading model.

Joe Furnari applied advanced mathematics and statistical techniques to identify chart features with a high probability to future 3-6 month performance. He refined the model and retested repeatedly until the model delivered “Ludicrous Returns vs. the Market.” This book provides instructions on how to apply the stock investment model.

The discovery of patterns that predict also led to the development of the market timing model. Tailored for 401K accounts restricted to equity index funds, this model identifies optimal cash vs. S&P 500 equity position. The model is configured to identify when to exit equities ahead of potential crashes and when to re-enter. In a simulated 52-year test spanning from 1970 to 2021, this model accumulated wealth at a staggering 4.8 times the buy-and-hold strategy.

“Ludicrous Returns vs. the Market” will help readers learn how to:

  1. Create a high-performing stock portfolio.
  2. Screen for best-performing 15% of stocks and stocks to avoid.
  3. Identify optimized time to buy.
  4. Identify strategic time to sell.
  5. Time the Market buying and selling S&P500 equity index at optimized times.
  6. Apply the stock investment and market timing models with illustrative examples.

Book is available in Kindle, eBook, paperback or hardcover.
