Cumulus and Foam has been making the press rounds lately with mentions in Print Magazine, It’s Nice That, Selectism, and linkage on NOTCOT, Unstrung, and involved in a so-called debate on QBN of what is considered beautiful. As well, our Behance project for C&F was featured on their front page this past week and jumped to over 200 thumbs up! It’s been a great start for this strange little creature and we look forward to what else will arise from its birth.
Don’t forget, if you use C&F and want to share the results, stop on by it’s Facebook page and share.
When Stefan Kjartansson first sent us Cumulus and Foam, we asked him what sort of conceptual keywords would he attach to his beautiful monster. He gave us terms like Abortion, Brothels, Rabies, Fake Orgasms, Bacteria, Victorian Wigs & Cappuccino Froth as things that inspired the design. Today we took those original keywords as our inspiration and designed special font showings just for our Behance page. (Cumulus and Foam on Behance)

We would like to take a quick breather right now to announce some new font designers on the site. First, over the next few weeks/months we will be adding designs from the massive collection of Intellecta Design, a Brazilian type foundry focused on remastering found and antique type. Second, another Brazilian foundry by the name of BRtype has currently added six unique designs to the library. Last but not least, Rui Abreu (Portugal) has joined our site and started by added his modern design Gesta to our library.
We are currently in the works of adding even more new foundries over the next few months. As well, we have hundreds of fonts (from designers like P22 and Sudtipos) waiting to be added to our library as we speak. Keep a close watch via our newsletter, Facebook, and Twitter to be notified of when these new items are posted.
Some of you may recall a little font release by the name of Black Slabbath that we launched back in 2008. Well, the designer of that fantastic font release is back at it again. Stefan Kjartansson is this designer in mention and his latest font creation is anything but normal. We have to say, this is one of the most original font designs to cross our paths, if not the most ever. This upcoming release goes by the name Cumulus and Foam, and will contain 3 different styles. Look for this beauty releasing this summer, only at yours truly, YouWorkForThem.
Look out, Clark W. Griswold, because Soaka just parked on your front lawn. Soaka is the grotesque, raw, country cousin of our slab serifs Motown and Lollop, and brings the pain when you’re facing down those rough Cobra Kai design jobs in the middle of the night. This totally out-of-control slab serif is available in opentype format, and is coded with stylistic alternate options that offer a more playful approach. Grab a can of Blatz and get ready to crush it on your skull, ’cause it’s time to hit the street with Soaka. In honor of Soaka’s launch, we have created a special PDF type speciman, enjoy!
Mr. Kiji graduated from RISD with a degree in industrial design in 2003 but since then has been focusing on his main passion, drawing! Most impressive to me is his ability to cover a wide range of styles & techniques, something you don’t see too often these days. Steady on Mr. Kiji!
Some of you may already know, but we have been developing and maintaining a little image blog/community called Buamai since late 2008. We recently did a little spring cleaning on the code and layout of the site, making for a much easier and quicker experience when searching and browsing for images. Also, be sure to check out the iPhone app if you enjoy the site. At only 99 cents, app purchases help us raise funds to continue working on the site and keeping it alive.
Word of warning, some images might not be safe for work (nsfw).
We are proud to announce two more amazing type foundries have joined our library, say hello to TipografiaRamis & Positype. Launching with over 20+ fonts between the two of them, they bring us amazing new scripts, serifs and sans-serifs. We are very excited to have these two designers join us and we look forward to posting more from them in the coming months.
