Freebie: EdmondSans Font
New this month is EdmondSans, a small caps display typeface created by James T. Edmondson and distributed by the Lost Type. You can get it for free or send a donation to the creator depending on the weight of your wallet.
App: Vectoria – $4.99
Vectoria is an app that allows you to create simple and intricate vector shapes on your iPhone, iPad or iPod. The learning curve is very steep but the wide variety of shapes and patterns you can create with that app is extremely impressive. I must admit I haven’t quite figured out myself how to create “nice” looking vectors yet but after toying with the app for 15 minutes, I’m slowly getting the hang of it. Plan at least an hour of practice before you can start to create amazing shapes… unless of course you’re a little genius. Either way, I recommend Vectoria to all adventurous designers out there.
