Goudy Blackletter 1922 is another open source font from The League of Movable Type, one of my favourite font web sites. It is available for download below. This font is based on Frederic Goudy’s Kennerley Oldstyle.
Ever the keen photographer. I have been shooting pic’s since I got my first camera at age of about 8. I love exploring my vision through a lens, fascinated with shooting images that show how I see the world. I favour black and white, but will use colour when the colours are just too beautiful to ignore.
A self promo poster, sipnning spin on my previous ‘No. I don’t design logos’ poster. Let there be no doubt as to my purpose in life. I design logos, and I am bloody good at it. How’s that for some positive self reinforcement.
There is no subject more controversial then SpecWork. It never ceases to amaze me the levels of emotion, even hatred that someone people exhibit when arguing against companies such as 99Designs and CrowdSpring. If SpecWork were a religion, we would bear witness to holy wars erupting between believers and non believers. This is my take…
If you have not seen the first installment of this hilariously funny animation, then head to Designer vs Client first, then come back to watch this, the sequel.
Just purchased/won on eBay, an ‘apparently’ mint Apple Mac Colour Classic, with all boxes, floppies and manuals. Been watching it for a week on eBay and it ended today. Sure something must be wrong as I was the only bidder, makes me nervous when that happens.
This is the first part of an ongoing logo design series. Showcasing a collection of logos and brand marks, self submitted by a bunch of freelance designers and creative folk in many creative areas. These logo designs are not random. They are the designs created by the designers themselves. These are the logos each designer here feels is their best design, for any number of reasons.
A new typographic based poster design, free for you to download. This quote came about whilst on my usual daily rampage on Twitter. Just popped into being after hearing the usual debate about the virtues of Mac and/or PC. being a Mac fan, I ofcourse sided with Mac. Hence this poster. “Remember. An Apple a day keeps Vista at bay.”
These are my Freelance Logo Design Snapshots, just an initial glimpse of ongoing and completed logo and brand identity projects from my portfolio. This one is for ‘The Brain Bureau’, a retro styled identity for a psychology group.
It just doesn’t get any better than this.. im still laughing.
As to be expected, a revolt of sorts, by creatives of all disciplines, ensued after news announced by iStock that they would be selling ‘ready made’ logo designs. The level of discourse created by such news was pretty intense, and will be going on for some time I am sure.
Pinched this story from Font72, as I feel it warrants being mentioned and commented on. Putting aside the beautiful artwork on the Lettercase website, I am intrigued by this idea of sharing, collaborating and finding fonts with your ‘special’ friends and work colleagues.
League Gothic is a revival of an old classic, Alternate Gothic No.1. It was originally designed by Morris Fuller Benton for the American Type Founders Company (ATF) in 1903. The company went bankrupt in 1993. And since the original typeface was created before 1923, the typeface is in the public domain. You can download it for free here.
This is the 2nd vector font from Gustuv that I have available here for download on IJC. The first one being Teodoria. The download of Vilhelmia (Behance Link) comes as a Illustrator file, fully editable as you see fit. It will provide a solid framework for your own remix or use as is.
This typographic poster, based on the periodic table, originally kicked around the internet some months back now and proved to be viral in every sense of the word. It literally popped up everywhere, and for good reason. The designer, Camdon Wilde clearly onto a classy winner has now come up with version 2, in a stylish black and silver version.
A Few Good Logo Designers. You worked in a creative department? You want great ads? You want a bigger logo?… The size of a logo, well tragic, doesn’t sell products… You weep for a bigger logo and you curse the art directors. You have that luxury. That the size of a logo doesn’t sell product. I’d rather you went to lunch and said thank you.
