Stoere Binken Design - Gratis fonts voor professionals

Je kunt kosteloos uitproberen of het lettertype de juiste uitstraling heeft voor het product dat je aan het ontwerpen bent, en of het de gewenste typografische mogelijkheden biedt. Er zijn een aantal echte font ontwerpers die uit liefde voor de typografie hele goede gratis fonts aanbieden. Hieronder vind je een uitgebreide – en nog steeds groeiende – collectie van fonts en font families die je zowel als corporate font, voor verpakkingen of elk ander creatief ontwerp én zelfs het web kunt inzetten. Daarnaast hebben we er wat lekkere gekke fonts tussen zitten die het werk aangenamer maken, want welke ontwerper speelt er niet graag? Onze criteria om een font in deze lijst op te nemen was dat het een nauwkeurig uitgewerkt lettertype is, deze een uitgebreid letterteken set bevat en goed gespatiëerd is.

Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum. When graphic designer Philippe Apeloig featured his own poster designs at the Espace Topographie de l’art in Paris, he chose the title Vivo in Typo for the exhibition, and decided to make the title the graphic focus of his promotional poster.

Apeloig concieved of an image comprised entirely of typography. He began by sketching punctuation marks with ink on paper. He then moved to the computer, producing pages of digitally-generated punctuation. By manipulating the spacing and the weighting of the punctuation, Apeloig was able to create individual text forms. He then layered these text forms in different scales so that the title of the exhibition, Vivo in Typo, emerges as if it were woven together. Apeloig then returned to sketching to experiment with the layout and development of the text. Font-A-Day. Ubuntu, the font .. the OS .. the way of life?

Monogram

History[edit] Monograms have been used as signatures by artists and craftsmen on paintings, sculptures and pieces of furniture, especially when guilds enforced measures against unauthorized participation in the trade.

Rise of the Living Type

Take your pick. The prints above and below were designed in the mid-1600s by the Polish goldsmith, Jan (or Johann) Christian Bierpfaff (1600-? 1690). Bierpfaff's organic alphabet (dedicated to the patriarch of the Mackensen clan) blends the newly discovered shell patterns with grotesque botanical styling to produce extraordinary, abstracted figures in which the ornament itself comes to life.

The design is whimsical, imaginative and exquisite, all while being restrained within the confines of a recognisable alphabetical form. Although the background information online seems a little ambiguous as to publication dates, I believe the series above (released as a suite of 20+ prints called: 'Libellus Novus Elementorum Latinorum..') was the first appearance of Bierpfaff's innovative designs.
