Hi guys et gals:
Josh Darden has finally updated his new studio website and that means for you and me lots of goodies:
The free font Birra Stout (Birra is eyetalian for beer) is super chunky and cute, tho I’m pretty Nick Curtis would roll his eyes—it’s more his thing :oP
Freight is now in OpenType Std form for only slightly more, tho I’m not sure of all those nifty features are integrated and contextual :
The Untitled face that won a TDC award in 2007 has been released as Jubilat. Its available in OpenType Pro too:
There are other gems all over his page:
This italic seems like an extension Corundum, but notice the gothic with the funky number eight... I need that!
Read the blog. There are plenty of previews of coming attractions. Corundum News and a commissioned face for Mucca’s rebranding of Canton Liqueur. There are some interesting designs in the tshirts section:
There is an in-house branding technical sans that I really like. Argent? Notice the capital R:
I spied that in the Birra PDF specimen.
I am truly impressed Mr. Darden versatility as a type designer... the next Matthew Carter?
But lets no forget our friend halfway around the world—PampaType released Garrone:
It seems to take the best qualities of Rayuela Chocolate and Alrt and transform them into something exciting and expressive, yet still entirely suitable for serious book/text work and related to his other productions. Yummy!
Enjoy and happy font shopping... next payday I promise!!!!!
