A clean and minimal helvetica typographic based poster design, free for you to download. I have never understood the phrase “less is more.” How can ‘more’ really be ‘less’. Frankly, it’s a stupid saying. So, this poster put’s things right, at least in my crazy crazy world. And if you want to really debate it, meet me down the pub for a beer.
A new typographic based poster design, free for you to download. This quote came about whilst I was playing on Twitter in response to something someone said. “No. I don’t design logos. I pull them out of my ass.”
As designers we are inundated with places to display and store our work, usually to overwhelming proportions. So many places to source inspiration and places to show off our work. It can be tempting to use all of them, and thus the mammoth task of keeping them all updated begins. Or we slowly abandon one in favour of another, or give up completely until the next new thing comes along. Welcome DripBook.
One of the many cool things about Twitter, is that I get ideas for new blog posts almost on a daily basis. This post was inspired such an event, all to do with buying new fonts for new logo projects.
After what seems like years waiting for the impossible to happen, getting invited to the awsome inspiration bookmarking site, FFFFound, it happened. I have made passionate pleas before seeking invites, but always the same sad ending. However, on the 14th September 2009, someone heard my passionate request and sent me their one and only invite for FFFFound.
Always, and I mean always, on the look out for new sources of inspiration, I occasional stumble cross a site that has a healthy helping of logo designs, typography, art and pretty much everything else. Share Some Candy is one of those sites.

Several months ago, when I was playing around with a new logo for ImJustCreative, I kind of fell of the rails a little. In my delusional state, I thought it would be a great idea to come up with little dude me’s.
Time for a new giveaway and this time, time for something completely different. Not the usual typographic related giveaway, but something very cool. This giveaway is for a number of Apple iTunes vouchers. There are 5 prizes up for grabs.
Congratulations to Becky Bryant @Caria for being randomly picked as the winner for the TDR giveaway. I really sincerely appreciate all those that took part, and followed me regardless of the outcome.
Couldn’t resist this link up to a logo design blog post on FontFeed, titled ‘Fun with Vintage Porn Logos’. Now, all I need is to be approached by some sleazy porn movie director to commission a new porn logo. I feel the need to be ‘sleazy’.
These are my Freelance Logo Design Snapshots, just an initial glimpse of ongoing and completed logo and brand identity projects from my portfolio.An in-depth logo design process post will follow sometime in the future.
A ‘revival’ of Goudy Oldstyle and Italic font, with features among which are small capitals (in the roman only), oldstyle and lining figures, superscripts and subscripts, fractions, ligatures, class-based kerning, case-sensitive forms, capital spacing. There is support for many languages that use latin script.
Quote : “People ask me why I use Helvetica so much for logos.”
Grabed this cool article in my RSS feed this morning from the neat IDSGN blog, which they quote : “Long before modern icon libraries like Helveticons, designers and sign-makers were forced to use a mishmash of symbols. Until the Helvetica man came along…”
This is Part 11 of the Logo Design Round-Up series. This ongoing series showcases a collection of logos and brand marks, self submitted by a bunch of freelance designers and creative folk in many creative areas. These designers use the logos to sell, promote, brand and market their various skills.
