We haven't posted about some free fonts in quite a while. We used to have a day of the week to offer some nice free findings in terms of fonts but it was getting difficult to find beautiful and worth sharing material.
Mixing analog with digital always works. Despite the advances in technology and the tools that help us to recreate and emulate diverse effects, there's nothing like using the materials to get the assets and textures you need. The branding project created for Squarespace New York by Pawel Nolbert and Karol Kolodzinski is a great example with a beautiful outcome. We're really digging the mixing of paint splatters to recreate the Squarespace logo and different assets for their brand.
The project consisted of two main parts: two static hi-res key art images, one logo-based and one abstract, operating within the same visual language, and an animation/bumper that featured the Squarespace logo.
