Sponsor // A Fresh Face in The Stock Imagery World

Foto Sushi

Foto Sushi, a new player in the stock photo industry, is breathing life into the mundane world of people imagery. The brainchild of seasoned art directors and designers, Foto Sushi was created to help alleviate some of the pain that goes into finding good people images. Designers can choose from about a dozen expressions per model, and each model is shot under consistent lighting schemes so they can be easily grouped together. Each extra-large, high resolution image has been beautifully retouched to save designers time and models are shot in focus to make them easy to clip out. Lastly, Images are never cropped, so designers wont’ be inconvenienced with rebuilding body parts. Licensing agreements are Royalty-free making Foto Sushi hassle-free.

Sponsor // Yana Typeface

Yana by Laura Worthington


Classy, calligraphic, and confident. Yana’s classical proportions convey worldly sophistication and experience. Yet unlike more staid classical faces, Yana’s concave terminals and elegantly flared serifs suggest romance, mystery, and a touch of Victorian extravagance.

Designed as a versatile family for everything from text use to headlines and titling, you’ll find yourself using Yana in project after project. Yana is available in regular, bold, and italic variants, and includes two sets of swash capitals — each available in standard sizes and small caps, but also in mid-sized petite caps, ideal for adding beautiful, properly scaled flourishes to the middle or end of wordmarks.

Yana is available through a limited-time promo deal here.

Sponsor // The Hungry JPEG

fetridge font

Fetridge & Outfitter

In recent years script fonts have found a renewed interest. Known for their fluid and varied strokes these digital counterparts draw inspiration from sign painting of the past and present. Since they are based on the gestures of the written word, they can add warmth and personality to a design often making it more approachable.

In today’s post we highlight a series of scripts from our sponsor The Hungry JPEG. Ranging in a variety of styles and weights  the examples below represent just a small fraction of their current catalog.



I Am the Frankenstein Monster!

Ralph Cosentino

Werewolves! vampires! spiders with top hats! These are some of the creatures featured in a new monster picture book series by author, illustrator, and character designer Ralph Cosentino. Inspired by his love for monsters this collection pays homage to the folklore and stories he admired as a kid.

In the first book, readers are invited to rediscover Frankenstein, not as a menacing beast but as a gentle giant with a love for reading and foreign languages. Joining him in his adventures are a chubby bat named Claude and a lovable cat named Bela. Together they explore alternative uses for windmills and learn the finer points of Spanish music and dancing (I suspect the later pays homage to Ralph’s own background as the son of Argentinian flamenco dancers). To help bring the story to life, Ralph employs auditory phrases and expressive typography to encourage parents and children alike to immerse themselves in the experience and pretend to be their favorite characters.

After years of burning the midnight oil, Ralph is ready to bring the series to light (but don’t tell Dracula!).  To secure a copy and earn cool stuff along the way, you can help support his efforts via this Kickstarter campaign.
