Great Design Resources

Graphic Design, Typography

I’m going to count this as a “Free Font Friday” post because there are free fonts in here but I also found some other really awesome resources for designers:

Appmaker– A drag-and-drop mobile app developer. Currently in beta stage.

Hiro– An online notepad that syncs across your devices

WP Test– A place to test WordPress plugins and themes

UICloud– A database of user interface elements.

DiagnosticCSS– A simple way to detect invaild HTML markup.

Formstone– jQuery plugins for interface structure and customization.

And one that’s a little bit funny but I’m sure plenty of designers can relate to and probably use to convince some clients.

NoJPEG– a fun way to explain to your clients why jpegs are the wrong file format for logos.

And a whole lot more including a lot of free fonts.

(Almost) Free Font Friday

Graphic Design, Typography

So every now and then I’ll post cool free fonts that I discover. This might not be a cool thing for a graphic designer to say but I don’t like paying for fonts.. at least not with my own money. =) so I usually try and search around for free fonts. I did however come across some cool hand written fonts that aren’t free, but they aren’t as expensive as you would typically see for fonts.

These fonts I wouldn’t mind buying.. even with my own money.

I’m really into thin stroke fonts these days, so I thought these were cool. Plus I really like fonts with a hand drawn feel. Enjoy.

Free Font Friday

Graphic Design, Typography

I’m on a mission.. (did you think of that cereal commercial? I did). So since I’ve started my “healthier lifestyle adventure”- which is what I’m now referring to all this as.. I’ve been pretty simple with my breakfasts and lunches, dinners I vary all the time, but for the past 8-9 months 5 days out of the week I pretty much have the same thing for breakfast.

Now, coming from someone who didn’t really eat breakfast to begin with, it wasn’t that big of a deal for me. But I’m starting to realize how bored I’m becoming with my weekday morning smoothie. It just doesn’t do it for me anymore. So my mission: To throw in some variety. I’ve found a few recipes- we’ll I’m not sure if they are all considered ‘recipes’ necessarily but I’ve got some things I’m going to try out. I’ll let you know how that works out. In the mean time- enjoy some free fonts..

I’m a little disappointed in myself, I apologize- I was doing so well. It’s been a few crazy weeks with work, with the new apartment and with helping my sister with her new house, I just haven’t gotten around to posting in awhile. I know this is a lazy post but hey you get free things from it..

Just a few fonts I found interesting. I like the thin and tall style of these typefaces. Hope you do too!
