We’re finally back with another Typeface Tuesday! This week features Brim Narrow – Designed by Jamie Clarke. We’re loving the depth and layers of this typeface. Designers description below:

“Brim is inspired by antique woodtype and chromatic type from the 1800s. Its various styles stack together creating a variety of decorative combinations. Each layer can be assigned its own colour, resulting in a rich assortment of eye-catching results.”

Serif TV

Created by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, its name, ‘Serif’ comes from the profile design, which looks like an uppercase serifed “I.”
It comes in three sizes – Serif, Serif Medium, and Serif Mini. Currently Samsung has only released Serif in the UK, hopefully with broader distribution to come from this nod-to-a-classic television set.

FontXChange 5 Released

fontxchange_icon

Today we released FontXChange 5.0 for Mac OS X El Capitan (10.11).

This is a free upgrade for all current FontXChange customers.
FontXChange is a font conversation tool that converts fonts between different file formats. This makes FontXChange useful to:

• Convert PostScript Type 1 fonts (Macintosh or Windows format) into a single modern OpenType font file that works on both Macintosh & Windows. End the headaches of the outdated two-file system of screen font and printer font combinations. Just one font file that works.

• Convert TrueType fonts to PostScript fonts. No more printing problems and incompatibilities associated with TrueType fonts and high-end output devices.

• Convert Windows fonts to Macintosh and vice-versa. Easily share fonts across different computers, even different operating systems.

• Convert to web fonts that can be used on web pages

A free demo version of FontXChange can be downloaded here.

These foodie types were designed for Sainsbury’s (a supermarket chain in the UK) ‘Twist Your Favourites’ campaign. The idea was to encourage people to add a bit of something unexpected to their favorite dishes – like sardines in the shepard’s pie, or horseradish to your mac n cheese. What do you think – is it working?
Designed by Analog Folk and Side by Side.
