Although the typefaces are freely available via the Lost Type they operate on a Pay-What-You-Want scheme, the first online typeface store of its kind, with 100% of the contributed donations going direct to the respective designers. Also worth nothing that neither Riley or Tyler take any cut from this operations neither do they hold onto any funds.
Lost Type Co-Op Store
I have recently been chatting to Riley because I am a big fan of his design work, and have previously featured some of his amazing logo designs, and through these chats Riley brought up the subject of the new Lost Type Co-Op Store.
I'm delighted to be able to help these guys spread the word about the store with their initial offerings shown in the photographs above. Merchandise includes: The Official Button Kit and a Font Specimen Book for their font Ribbon.
The graphics on those pins are just gorgeous.
If you don't fancy buying anything from the store then you should at least browse the stupendously varied selection of fonts on offer. The fonts above are just a small selection from their library.
Just a few days ago I posted some lovely examples of modern vintage logo designs by Wallace Design House, so continuing the modern vintage theme is another fine collection of modern vintage logos by Riley Cran.
Riley is also responsible for LostType.com.
These logo examples were just featured in Grain Edit, so you may have already seen these exact same logos, but if not then it's all about sharing and caring. :)
Although I do enjoy the colour designs there is something about the rawness of just black that really works for me with these modern vintages styles of logo designs.
The Swagapple logo, above, is a nice example of this, and if you visit Riley's website you will see how he has taken an element from the logo and turned it into a secondary logo mark. I like.
Also work checking out Riley's blog for more of the same.
