We came across a very nice Flickr group today, all dedicated to Polaroid Type 80 film. With loads of retro like imagery on here, it makes for a fun little area to browse.
Our hot font release of 2009, Agostina, recently made an appearance in this years hollywood action film Crank: High Voltage. Used during two different sequences in the film, Agostina puts on its dancing shoes and shines. Much thanks to the designers who used our font for this project, and great execution with the sequences! Thanks to Mark Stuckert for the heads up.
