It’s the weekend and if you like me, like to spend your weekends trying to learn something new here’s a little motivation, to be more specific, some 3D and typography motivation. Rishabh Gandhi shared a 3D project aimed to explore type forms in a distinctive medium, experimenting with 3 dimensional motion graphics. It’s simple, but it’s also a great for folks to try to recreate that to learn the tools.
Good design is long lasting, that’s the best definition for me and it’s clear when you see projects that were published more than 2 years ago like this collection of posters that Roy Cranston shared on his Behance profile. They were daily designs created in 2019 but look as stylish and fresh as if they were created today.
Simi Mahtani shared a collection of beautiful graphic design work. The self-driven typographic studies were inspired by emotions during life in quarantine from 2020-2021. Simi rendered these studies with the help of Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, and Adobe After Effects. I personally love the extra effect added to the text, giving them a more metallic look.

With the new year, the lockdown is still a topic on every mouth, stay home they say, keep distance they ask, and wear your mask they required. But once your home thing we take for granted are things you depend on, seeing your loved ones, giving a hug or kisses. Living in isolation is something we all have to learn to adapt to, making sure we have enough movies, entertainment, to have a better appreciation towards foods, living to the minimum, and take time to another aspect. It is hard but manageable, hope you all hanging in there, we will hug each other again.
Under the name of kissmiklos, he is a designer and visual artist based in Budapest, Hungary. He shared a typeface he designed entitled: 'Masqué' which is a font family inspired by the 'Didot font'. It's quite a fancy typeface that should mostly be used for display and headlines.

Give it a look and you can also give it a test and download the Masqué typeface.
Andreion de Castro shared a personal motion design project, exploring and experimenting with creative coding on a daily basis. Inspired by pop culture, he often uses lyrics and movie references as the premise of his animations. “As you will see when you browse through my posts, I tend to work with more emotion and depth, translating into a slower motion.” - adds Andreion. Combining traditional and modern mediums, constantly seeking what could be the future for design.
Chrisb Marquez shared a beautiful typography work, to be more precise, it’s about his new mono typeface called Ingram Mono, a sans serif font design published by Minor Praxis and Powered by YWFT - sometimes monospaced typefaces tend to be a bit too spaced out, most of them look a bit difficult to use on most project. Ingram seems to address this issue, making it a bit more versatile. What do you think?

Xtian Miller is a designer from Detroit, MI, USA and he is back another typographic poster studies, I really dig his style and his sense of graphics. Having featured his work before on abdz, you just can't help to appreciate his creative senses and his willingness to constantly keep exploring through discovery. His work is a mixture of the pure graphic design from the 90s, and even beyond that.
Dave Ordnajela is an Art Director & Illustrator based in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. He shared an aesthetic series filled with imaginative scenes, concluded with a beautiful typography treatment titled: 'Moments & Places'. I am not sure if it's because of the pandemic but it's a personal experiment for Dave to create after a need of taking pictures. So Dave would imagine these 'Moments & Places' where there would be a soundtrack to complete the piece.
One day when contemplating a particularly awful break-up, lettering artist and illustrator Jessica Molina came up with an idea—what if she could send her ex a nasty letter? Better yet, what if she could create a series for all the frustrating exes of the world? Thus, her passion project Petty Postcards was born. I love side/passion projects, I love lettering and I love this idea even more, especially in this moment we live.
Hanson Method™ shared their latest creation, a versatile typeface consisting of 3 weights name Oskari-G2®. Each with an individual character (no pun intended).
