Once in while a project of such beauty and generosity shows up. Like the stunning Lobster font, Derek Weathersbee has lavished the utmost attention to the presentation of his typeface, Franchise Bold.
The fact that it is a free download just mystifies me and hugely inspires me.
Franchise Bold is the first weight available but Derek is working on three other weights, Regular, Light and Hairline.…Read More

We were always in love with the title sequence lettering to Godard’s movies “Made in U.S.A.” and “2 ou 3 choses que je sais d’elle”. On the ocasion of Godard’s 80th birthday (3 December 2010), we are releasing this typeface as a free download.
It is our hommage to Jean-Luc, to the Nouvelle Vague, to Seberg, Karina, Faithfull & Cie., and a birthday gift for all “enfants de Marx et de Coca-Cola.”
Jean-Luc is free downloadable font.…Read More

Just a few words on how I manage deposits and payment for the logo projects that have a budget of £2000 and over. For most projects I ask for full payment up front for most overseas clients and between 50% to 75% deposit for UK clients. However, when you get a job with a much higher budget, asking for full payment up front is a little cheeky to say the least.…Read More

I have always been a bit weirded out with the whole concept of trends in logo design. I did touch on this quite some time back, but worth highlighting again.
The very nature of trends is that they are just that, something that lives brightly for a while, then typically withers away once a new trend has taken hold.…Read More

Yasmin approached me a few weeks ago to see if I would be willing to take on a relatively urgent project, to create her fashion identity brand by Christmas. Yasmin is a promising young English fashion designer, already featured in many publications and has her first range coming out next year.
What you see here is the first of a few ideas for the main logo presented to her.…Read More

Not all logo marks appear to have a meaning, they look random and abstract. Many large brands appear, at least on the surface, to have an identity that seems devoid of any real connection.
I find coming up with random marks pretty tricky, when a client has suggested I use my artistic licence, I actually end up crawling to a complete stop. Devoid of direction and inspiration.…Read More
