Blackout typeface

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.

Two styles: Midnight (solid) & 2AM (reversed)

Eats holes for breakfast lunch and dinner. Inspired by filling in sans-serif newspaper headlines. Continually updated with coffee and music. Makes your work louder than the next person’s.

Not Any Old Free Font Will Do

Never ceases to amaze me how designers and typographers spend their valuable hours, only to give away finished results for free, namely fonts. Creating a typeface is a lengthy job, no two ways about it. So hats off to any designer frankly, who is able to design a useable typeface, let alone make it available for free, or release it to the OpenSource Community.

Being a freelance logo designer, finding quality and unique ‘free’ fonts for that next logo project 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.

Here on ImJustCreative, I am trying to find the fonts that are that little bit special, for any number of reasons. Not any old free font will do.
