It has been awhile since we blogged a site, this kind of happens when you have 4000 fonts in your ‘new products to post’ que. But the crew from Numero 10 emailed us the other day to let us know about their new portfolio, and we must say it is amazingly nice. Be sure to check out the A4+++ Réclames Peintes project for a beautiful approach to hand painted sign-artwork with modern brands like Smirnoff and Nescafe.
Sam Green lives in London and has a nice lineup of illustration works ranging from insane pencil & ink to rough color explosions and tons of tension filled black and white works that leave you begging for more. You’ve probably already seen his work out & about but it’s time to check out his new works along with an official add to bookmarks. File under #holy crap.
We have had many new designer/foundry additions to our site in the past month, one of the biggest being the addition of the font foundry Insigne. Insigne will be bringing hundreds of new fonts to our font collection, with already over 200 in this month alone. We also welcome Theodore Jordan and Greg Perkins to our stock audio designers, look for new audio collections composed by these two in the coming weeks. And last but not least, we also added a new designer listing page to help you find a particular designer or foundry of interest.
After the interesting discoveries we made while creating Typography in Water, we figured it was best to continue exploring this nature versus type theme. This time around we explored freezing type to see what sort of visual oddities might arise. While the results were similar to the previous placements in water, ice created a much colder, cleaner and minimal effect than water. Jump on over to the YouWorkForThem Behance to see this latest project.
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 recently published a project on Behance titled Typography in Water where we took five selected fonts and mixed them with water. The final result was astonishing and we figured why not provide these as wallpapers as well. So to serve all the frenzy around the recent Apple iPhone 4 and iPad releases, we are offering selected images from the project as wallpapers for those devices. Read more…
Really interesting work over at the portfolio of Hattie Newman. As noted in the about section, “I am an illustrator and set maker working in London. My background includes a first class degree in Illustration from UWE, Bristol and a breadth of projects for a range of clients. Combining my two and three dimensional imaginations, I enjoy making work inspired by all things charming and strange.”
