Design Double Take

DDD-CITIES
We haven’t expressed our love for Behance in while, (to jog your memory it’s the super cool site that showcases up and coming graphic designers’ work) so we wanted to share a project we have been admiring of late. Texas A&M graduate Ryan Russell is an Animator and Graphic Designer who focuses on simple and minimal forms.  Case in point: his purist, yet striking city designs defined by the iconic structures that mark the metropolises we love.

Do you get them wine (been there, done that), flowers (but they die!) or perhaps a cake plate (do they already have one?!)?

Free Font Friday

Matilde is a hairline font that’s flirty and fun! While it’s a condensed font, it’s still easy on the eyes. Elegant yet very approachable, it is a multipurpose type that can fill different roles depending on how it is used.

Headings, magazines, children’s materials, posters,and logos are all suitable for using the Matilde Font. We can just picture this light-hearted type used as the title to a children’s book! How would you use this playful free font?!

More font and lettering eye candy are right this way on our Typography & Lettering Pinterst Board!

Although Labor Day has come and gone, did you know that Fall is not officially here until September 23rd?! Rejoice in a few extra weeks of Summer sun by spending scarcely a moment indoors! Hop on a bike for a ride, explore all the lush parks in your city and have as many dinners on the patio as possible!

Melamine servingware allows you to entertain outdoors in style, without all of the hassle of using your usual (breakable!) dinner plates. Let’s be honest, paper plates are convenient for picnics and parties, but they are no where close to chic! Melamine plates and platters are functional and are your bridge between chic and convenient!

Free Font Friday

more free fonts It’s been a little while since we had a Free Font Friday, but as everyone has their weekend escapes on the brain, we couldn’t help but immediately fall in love these wonderful place-based fonts!

Being based in San Francisco, all of these Northern California destinations are near and dear to our hearts. We’d visit every single one this weekend if we could! At least we can download each and every one of the fabulous fonts.

Still searching for your perfect type?? Have you given our FREE Monogram Maker a try? It helps you find the monogram that was meant just for you!
