Here we have a new typographic based poster design, free for download, based on one of my favourite quotes. “The probability of somebody watching you is proportional to the stupidity of your actions.” Have been fond of this quote for years, and have used it numerous time in my personal blogs.
Zag regular and bold are free custom sans fonts which are applicable for any type of graphic and logo design – web, print, motion graphics etc and perfect for t-shirts and other items. These are OpenType format. There are 7 styles in the family, two of which are free to download. The remaining 5 can be purchased from MyFonts.
This is one of a few ideas for a brand new identity. It’s focus right now is on the main logo, but the project will expand into other areas, including marketing, advertising, interior and exterior decoration. Creating the right identity for her is crucial at this point to distinguish herself above regular mens barbershops. The client is opening a new male hairdressers, or barbershop, here in the UK.
Blackout font is a new release, as it popped into my inbox this morning, so grab it whilst it is still fresh and start playing with it. If you have not visited The League of Movable Type yet, then I would take a minute or two to check it out and sign up to their RSS feed. It’s a class site, and they are encouraging people to design and make available class fonts for the Open Source community.
This free font came hurtling down my broadband connection courtesy of TypeNue. MOO! is a free font, a ultra-fat, electro-style, geometric typeface. It was designed focusing on logotypes, titles and display letterforms, with cut-out diacritics. Download here.
So this came through from Design You Trust this morning, another brilliant news flash. A ridiculously manic typography t-shirt, like, real geeky stylie. The only issue I see with this is that the explanations are set quite small, so interested strangers may be tempted to come up like real close and stare at your chest. Imagine the situation down the pub after a few Stella’s. Lord.
CP Mono fell into my sights a few months back whilst purposefully looking for a reasonably stylish mono spaced font for a new project. I try to avoid the many free font websites due to the sheer volume of dodgy and overused quantities of free fonts. Being a freelance logo designer, finding quality and unique ‘free’ fonts can be a struggle. Whilst there are 1000′s available, many are poor in quality and feel. Finding those ‘special’ free and open-source fonts is something of a past-time for me.
Logarde Thin is a sassy font that I stumbled upon on Behancé a while ago. Being a freelance logo designer, finding quality and unique ‘free’ fonts can be a struggle. Whilst there are 1000′s available, many are poor in quality and feel. Finding those ‘special’ free and open-source fonts is something of a past-time for me.
‘The 12 LogoType Designs – Have you Seen These Series’ showcases logos that are type orientated, in that they only use type or sets of characters to convey the message. They are free of icons and imagery. This style of logo design is one that I love, the logos are message focused, they are bold and strong, yet they can also be smooth and subtle. The emotion of the message changes with the typeface used.
Always one to look out for inspiring and original logo designs, I have been a wondering around the interweb in search of a fresh supply of logo designs. Logo design is what I do and I have wanted to put together a series of logo designs of my own choosing but without using the ‘usual suspects’ from the ‘usual sources’.
Whilst creating a new logo, I came up with a mad idea to create a new font. First time I have ever done so and frankly, I feel lame even calling it a font because it’s far far from being one. A font that is. The logo name is called Prone’, so taking the prone meaning literally, I decided to play around with some pretty shapes to create a custom and truly unique and utterly experimental ‘font’.
Nice to spend a few hours on a Friday afternoon playing around with some personal design projects. Felt like doing something Helvetica and typographic again. Oh my, what a surprise.
There is a universal confusion over the (anally) correct way to refer to the letters, characters, shapes, bitmaps, vectors we associate as being words. Frankly, does it really matter? Well, yes and no. It’s not like the simple difference between VHS and Betamax.
Neighbourhood Typeface. Andy Chung took the Neighbourhood font as a challenge to create something that had the graphic expression of a display face while still maintaining some of the functionality of a text face.
After the release of the Thank F**k For Helvetica-Max Mieding Typography Poster yesterday, here is part 2, a tribute to the man actually behind the idea of Helvetica. The first poster a tribute to the man mostly responsible for the crafting of the letterforms for Helvetica.
So many personal celebratory typographic posters out there for Helvetica, felt the need to create my own celebratory poster, with my own words of wisdom. With a specific mention to Max Miedinger.
