Your weekly dose of design inspiration and awesomeness.
Here are Weekly Wonders 20’s champions:
Fubiz is an inspiration gallery that focuses on graphic design, urban culture and digital arts. Their content is always top quality and, although the articles are written in French, it’s definitely worth a look (they offer Google translation of their site for the ones who’d like to read choppy French to English text).
Graphic: Alex Varanese
Alex Varanese is a graphic designer and typographer currently located in the Bay Area, CA. His creations are fantastic and he plays a lot with retro style in his posters. Besides making great graphic design, Varanese also creates beautiful original typefaces, something you should definitely take a look at if you are a type-lover.
Art: Emily Carrol
Emily Carrol is a skilled illustrator currently located in Vancouver, BC. She draws interesting short comics, usually telling stories related to angst and horror. Her comics are very well executed as she plays with the page, making her readers scroll down and down to keep up with the action, having her drawings waiting for us in the dark corners of our browsers. Margot’s Room is her latest tale.
Freebie: Cassannet Font
Cassannet is an Art Deco font inspired by Cassandre Posters. It’s a pay-what-you-want font and for a free download, the studio Atipo invites you to simply share a tweet or a facebook post about it. Cassannet is available in regular, bold and outline.
App: Dynamic Light – $0.99
Dynamic Light is a great app that will give to your photos a vibrant HDR look. It’s like no other I’ve used and it does marvels to photos that are too dark or that lack contrast. I use it and I love it.
