This has been making the type world rounds lately, U&lc has started posted some free PDF downloads of old back issues. They are not the best scans (did they scan these during a Christmas office party?) but they are free, available in high resolution, and did we mention free? Grab em while they are hot, and enjoy the type insanity.
We wanted to drop a quick post to let everyone know we have updated our Type Tester feature. We have added a larger viewing area and larger sizes of 100pt, 150pt and 200pt. We have also added character support for european characters and other special symbols, this means Read more…
Set the wayback machine for January, 2010: Network Osaka sends us their beautiful new serif, titled Haute. Immediately, it starts on a rapid climb toward becoming one of the year’s biggest sellers, and becomes a top-notch addition to the YouWorkForThem Exclusive Font Library. Now, fast-forward to present day, where we are proud to present the second exclusive release from Network Osaka, Burocrata. During the design and development of Burocrata, we worked closely with Network Osaka to make sure the finest details were reviewed, cleaned up and even polished with a chamois made of thousand-year-old yak fur. Network Osaka carried on improving more and more of the fine details with lasers and breakfast cereals late into the night, until finally, this amazing new sans serif emerged like a butterfly made of satin, covered in ice cream.
In addition to the release you can also Download PDF to see examples and specimen charts. (Sorry, no ice cream left.)
Burocrata is available only at YouWorkForThem.
For the past five weeks, our in-house designer Jackkrit Anantakul has been sketching, scanning and designing his latest font (handset) design, entitled Gavin. When all was said and done, the concept sketches had over 1100 letter designs, from which we narrowed down two versions, Gavin and Gavin Alt. Each of these two styles contains over 400 diverse, hand-drawn letters. To celebrate Gavin’s release we created a promotional pdf to showcase possible designs using Gavin. Gavin is extremely fun to design with, and we hope you enjoy reading this complimentary pdf as much as we enjoyed designing it.
About a month ago we released a new font, Matter. We felt it would be beneficial to go an extra mile and create a small PDF zine to further show the typographic value of Matter.

I am going to riff a little with the spirit of today’s theme, Earth Day.
First, there is a really nice zine for earth day titled, RRR. You can check the pdf out here and has a lot of really nice work from a lot of players in the illustration-design arena. I think you can only find it here, so feel free to link this post up. Proceeds from future sales of the printed versions of this book or artwork found within will go to benefit the Surfrider Foundation. Don’t forget to check out Steven Harrington’s Earth Day poster. Thanks, Jonathan.
