## Cape Arcona Type

CA Postal

CA Postal is a cute and clever little stamp-font.

It was originally intended for a record-cover only, but when the artist wanted all lyrics printed in the booklet, it was time for a font. The initial inspiration was a moveable-stamp printing-set, which had a nice Futura-like style, being very pleasant to read, especially in small sizes. But of course it’s the loose and irregular outlines that give the font its special charms.

CA Postal features two sets of characters and the “Contextual Alternates” feature will make sure that never two identical characters will stand next to each other, so that the stamp-look becomes even more authentic.

## Pintassilgo Prints

Transmogrifier

Inspired on Cuban posters by the talented and quite prolific graphic artist Eduardo Muñoz Bachs, Transmogrifier was hand painted with a thin brush, using loose, fast strokes.

This font is packed with lots of contextual and stylistic alternates that automatically transmogrifies the letters as you write (opentype savvy programs needed!). You can also pick the alternates by hand and set the text the way you like better. The choice is yours, and there are really plenty of alternates to choose from and create original handlettered-looking designs.

The font also brings a set of rough pictures based on charcoal sketches from Shniedewend & Lee Company, circa 1888. These were hand painted using the same thin brush as the letters, making them a natural complement.

Marujo

Marujo is a highly decorative typeface inspired by painted pieces of Arthur Bispo do Rosário, a striking Brazilian artist who lived for 50 years in a psychiatric institution.

Besides its spirited Regular and Light cuts, Marujo family brings nifty eye-catching variations adorned with dots and stripes. It also brings complementary fonts to spice things up even more: there are 2 shadow options and yet a picture font packed with doodles, mostly on nautical subjects (which are strongly present on Bispo do Rosário, a former seaman apprentice.)

Bispo do Rosário’s works employs a multitude of materials and are often very intricate. Words are everywhere, painted or embroidered at most. He produced a vast amount of works, and is now – posthumously – widely recognized in Brazilian art scene. The psychiatric institution in which he lived is now a museum dedicated exclusively to his work.

Marujo draws inspiration not only from Bispo’s works, but also from this man’s potency, a persistent man who produced amazing art locked in such a tough environment for a life-long.

Marujo fonts are positively adventurous and will safely navigate through a sea of feelings, reaching free spirits everywhere. To navigate is precise…

## Create a Bold, Typography Based Poster

Hey Design Cutters, Simon here! I have to say that, like many of you, I’m super excited to get started creating things with Design Cuts’ latest collection of typefaces. I mean, c’mon, multiple layered type systems, cool extras?

Today I’ll be showing you how to create a bold typography based poster. You’ll learn how to work with the awesome type systems in this week’s deal, as well as the various creative extras. This lesson includes plenty of pro tips about composition, layout and properly planning your images.

Let’s get started shall we?

## A BUNDLE OF VERSATILITY

Before we get started, take a look at one of the 12 fonts from our current bundle. You’re about to learn how to combine your fonts in this multi-layered, 3D way. It’s going to be fun!

## STEP 1: THE CONCEPT

Robin Williams’ death came as a shock to me, as to many around the world. At first, I wanted to make a piece in tribute to him, but copyright issues foiled that plan (I still made the piece, but it won’t be the basis for this tutorial).

I still wanted to pay homage to him in a way or another. One of my favorite roles by Williams is the Genie in Disney’s Aladdin (1992). I was looking at a lot of Aladdin video clips, gifs, and trivia, when something clicked.

One of Genie’s main “feature” is his distinctive blue hues. His lamp has also an interesting color scheme. I sampled my color scheme from two stills of the movie. This would be my small tribute to Williams.

The colors I’ve sampled from the lamp are the following (from dark to light):

• #401E2C
• #632A38
• #6C4154
• #D8A091

The colors I’ve sampled from Genie are the following (from dark to light):

• #0E0E1F
• #2B3075
• #545FAB
• #8C93C8
• #DDD5BE

Mixing these two color palettes will help us to emulate the color palette of the movie (to an extent). Sampling the lamp will also give us the option to use its red/brown tones as counterpoints to Genie’s blue hues.

### The subject of the poster

Once again, the piece can’t feature a character like Genie. As designers we always have to be aware of copyrights and respecting the work of others. After brainstorming quite a lot with the Design Cuts team, we came up with a quote about type:

Typography, exposing the true beauty of words

This seemed fitting, as the deal at hand is a type collection. We had a bunch of other good ones, but once again, potential copyright issues stopped us from using them. There was this one from Ellen Lupton (the designer and author behind books such as Thinking with Type) that struck a chord with us:

Typochondria: A persistent anxiety that one has selected the wrong typeface.

Anyways. We’ve got our color palette, our quote. Let’s get to work!

## STEP 2: DOCUMENT SETUP

Because we’ll primarily be manipulating type elements, I chose to work with Illustrator. Type manipulation is much easier and refined in Illustrator than in Photoshop in my opinion, and working in a vector format has advantages of its own when thinking about scalability for later applications.

I’m using an 18″x24″ canvas.

I’ve also added a few guides (vertically: 1″, 2″, 9″, 16″, and 17″, and horizontally: 1″, 2″, 12″, 22″, and 23″).

## STEP 3: THE BACKGROUND

I decided early on that my design would be with a dark background, featuring light elements. So let’s organize our layers a hair, and add a dark blue rectangle (#0E0E1F) that fills the whole canvas.

I’ve created a layer dedicated to the guides, one dedicated to the reference material and color palettes, and now one dedicated to the background elements.

## STEP 4: BREAKING DOWN THE QUOTE

This step is where I’m deciding of the line breaks I’ll follow. Each segment will feature a different type.

Typography / exposing / the true / beauty of / words

Prepare the individual text elements. Typeface, color, and size don’t matter at this point.

We will make use of Yellow Design’s Lulo and its rich layers to draw attention.

We’ll use Tyler Finck’s Porter Sans Ink for its neat shapes.

We’ll use Juri Zaech’s Frontage for its retro touch.

We’ll use Ian Irwanwismoyo’s Bowney for its rough presence.

Finally, we’ll use some of Maghrib’s Alpha Extras (namely the sun bursts), to highlight key elements of the poster we’ll be creating.

There’ll also be some other elements peppered in (poster edge, halftone texture…), but if you have all of these at hand, you should be all set to replicate my design.

A note of caution: the creative process for this piece wasn’t as linear as it is in this process writeup. It took a lot of trial and error to figure out the most satisfying color combos, or the most visually enticing size relationships between each line of text.

## STEP 5: USING LULO

This one is probably the most complicated set of steps, and I promise it’s actually an easy one. The way Lulo actually works is actually based on layers. The various typefaces of the family are actually drawn to work in relationship with each other.

Create a new sub-layer within the type layer, name it Typography, and add the typography type element within it.

You can also push the layer organization obsession a bit further, and order the type blocks by order of appearance.

From there, change the type to Lulo Four Bold, change the color to our dark red (#401E2C), and the size to 90 points.

Duplicate the layer (CTRL/CMD+C), paste it in front (CTRL/CMD+F), change the typeface to Lulo Three Bold, and change its color of the copy to our lighter blue (#545FAB).

Duplicate the newest layer again, paste it in front, change its color to our lightest blue (#8C93C8), and the typeface to Lulo Two Bold.

Repeat the process, changing the color of the new layer to our off-white (#DDD5BE), and the typeface to Lola One Bold.

Finally, repeat the process one last time, changing the color to the lightest red (#D8A091), and the typeface to Lola Outline Bold.

We know have ourselves a pretty neat “headline” piece, simply by stacking type elements and switching colors according to our color palettes.

There will be additional tweaks, but we’ll get to these later.

## STEP 6: OTHER TYPE ELEMENTS

### Type element: “exposing”

Exposing is set in Porter Sans Ink Regular, colored in our off-white (#DDD5BE), and sized at 120 points.

### Type element: “the true”

The true is set in Rather loud. It’s sized pretty big to match the width of our previous elements (414 points). We also take advantage of the various OpenType features of the typeface (alternates and ligatures). Finally, it’s color will be our lightest blue (#8C93C8).

### Type element: “beauty of”

Beauty of is set in Bowney. It’s sized at 234 points, and its color is our lightest red (#D8A091).

### Type element: “words”

Finally, we’ll be taking advantage of the awesome Frontage type system for words. The process is the same than for “typography” (layer stacking). The order of layer goes as follows (bottom to top):

• Frontage 3D – #545FAB
• Frontage bold – #D8A091
• Frontage regular – #DDD5BE

The elements are sized at 180 points.

## STEP 7: TYPE TWEAKS

While we have most of our elements ready, the composition is boring in its current state. Its lines are purely horizontal, and lack a bit of the “punch” the typeface themselves display. I’m going to suggest a few things to solve this issue.

### Tweaking “typography”

For starters, the word “typography” is a bit small compared to the rest of the type elements. In order to increase its size, let’s break it on two lines: “typo/graphy.” Tackle each of the text elements one after the other. Don’t hesitate to either lock or hide the ones that you’re not working on, to make the task easier.

Now that it occupies a more vertical shape, we can increase the size from 90 points to 144 points. No need to touch the line spacing value, as the default one takes well into account the various layers.

Next, to add some dynamism in the overall piece, we’ll add an arc effect (Effect > Warp > Arc). I’m using a 25% bend value.

### Tweaking “exposing”

The first tweak we could do here is to change “exposing” to “exposes.” This will make more sense grammatically.

Next, we should reduce its size a bit, so it can be visually nested under the arches of “typography.” This brings its size down to 96 points.

### Tweaking “the true/beauty of”

This one is a bit trickier. In order to insist on the significant words, and make the two lines work better as a unit, we’re going to shift colors a bit. We’ll put “the” and “of” in our blue, while “true” and “beauty” will be in our light red.

### Tweaking “words”

Finally, to tweak “words,” we’re going to increase its size to 204 points.

### TWeaking the overall feel

Now that the ensemble of the type objects have been tweaked independently of each other, we need to work on them as a whole. I’d like the type to be confined within my most inner guides (a column of 14″ wide and 20″ tall).

With the guides back on, it’s pretty clear that we’re not there yet.

Let’s move the elements around a bit, so everything fits in the desired space. While the result is better, the spacing between “exposes,” “the true,” “beauty of,” and “words” still needs to be fine tuned.

Since the placement of “typo/graphy” and “words” is fixed, we can turn off the guides, and visually refine things.

Once the spacing issues are solved, it’s time to pepper the piece with a few subtle extras, like the sun bursts and textures.

## STEP 8: THE LITTLE EXTRAS

There are three extra elements that I’d like to add to this piece before calling it complete:

• A sun burst behind “the true / beauty of” to highlight that part
• One of Ian Irwanwismoyo’s bonus halftone texture
• Finally, one of Ian’s rebel frame

Start by creating a new layer for your extra elements just above your background layer.

### The sun burst

This one is easy. Open \Maghrib\alpha rough & Extras\extra\extra.ai.

We’re going to grab this wider one, as it’ll fit the text block a bit better.

Copy and paste it into your Extras layer, change its color to our darker blue (#2B3075), and center it behind the text block. Don’t be afraid to make it as wide as the canvas.

### The halftone goodness

Next is Ian Irwanwismoyo’s texture. Place \Ian-Irwanwismoyo\Bowney Marowney\Rebel Edges\Texture Bonus\Bloody Halftoner.png in your design. Make sure its within your extra layer, but below the sun bursts.

I’ve centered it in the canvas, and size it at 24″ tall for now.

Trace it to change it into vector elements.

Change its color to our darkest red (#401E2C).

I’m not a huge fan of the line at the top of the texture.

The solution? Simple: increase the texture’s height to approximately 25″, and the line will be out of the canvas.

### The last touch: the frame

We’re close! We’re going to add a frame around the piece. Ian’s Rebel edges are perfect for the job. Since his stuff is a bit on the intense side, we’re going to distort thing a bit so only a little bit of it will show.

Start by placing 04.png in your piece, below the halftone texture.

Trace it to make it a vector asset.

Change its color to the darker blue (#2B3075).

As you can see, the result isn’t entirely satisfying: the frame doesn’t have the proper aspect ratio. To “fix” this, you can simply size by hand, dragging the frame’s edges so they’re matching the frame for our piece.

If like me you think that the frame is too intense, simply increase its height to 25″, and the excess will be clipped out of the frame.

And with that last tweak, we’re done!

## Create a Font Based Event Ticket Design

Hello Design Cutters!

Jo again. For our latest tutorial we’re going to play around with a slightly different format, creating an event ticket for a Jazz and Blues Night at the groovy Design Cuts Lounge ;).

We’ll be looking at how to create a bold, simple layout using a limited colour palette and chunky fonts, plus using images, pattern fills and layer masks to add texture. It’s going to be fun!

Quick note: In this tutorial, the term “clipping” or “clipped layer” is used a few times. This means that the layer is only visible/applies to the layer directly below it. You can very quickly do this by holding ‘Alt’ down on your keyboard and clicking between the two layers. Here’s a quick demonstration.

Ok, you cool Design Cutting Cats, let’s get started!

## WHAT WE’RE CREATING:

We’ll be using the fantastic creative fonts from our current Inspirational Creative Fonts Collection to create this outcome:

Today, we have another great freebie for you to enjoy. Maghrib have kindly donated their awesome Alpha Extras for the Design Cuts community. These images are so cool and versatile on their own, we’re sure you’ll find lots of creative ways to use them in your work!

Remember, this freebie is just a tiny sample taken from our current deal: The Inspirational Creative Font Collection (Includes Web Fonts) at just 29 (92% Off). This bundle is full of best-sellers and it’s easy to see why – they really are classic, versatile fonts that never go out of style and are bound to feature in your work for years to come. Enter your email below to download this freebie, so you can follow along with this tutorial easily. ## Step 1: Open up a new 2.75 inch height x 8.5 inch width document in Photoshop. Then, we need to download this great paper texture from caminopalmero: Old Paper Texture If you’ve followed some of my previous tutorials, it’s likely you’ve already got it downloaded – it’s a bit of a favourite Paste the texture on to your Photoshop canvas, scaling to fit the dimensions: We want to create a dark background without losing the texture, so we’ll need to make sure the layer is rasterized so we can invert the colours (Image > Adjustments > Invert): This gives us a nice inky-blue colour, but we want to build the design on a more neutral base. We’ll do this quickly with a clipped hue/saturation Adjustment Layer with the following settings: Hue/Saturation Settings: Colourize: On Hue: 0 Saturation: 0 Lightness: -10 We now have a subtly textured black base to work on: ## Step 2: Before we finish off the background, there’s something we can do to give it a more authentic touch. A lot of tickets have some sort of pattern in the background to make it harder to produce fakes. Here’s an example below: We’ll do something similar by creating a Pattern Fill. Open up a new Photoshop document with the same dimensions as our working canvas, and a transparent background. From the current bundle, select Yellow Design Studio’s Lulo One as the font, at size 10pt and colour black. Then type “The Design Cuts Lounge”. Zoom in to 100% and position the text in the top left of your canvas, using the transparent grid to help align the text 1 square in from each side: Then, crop the image so that there’s approximately 1 square below and four squares to the right of the image: Once cropped, in the menu bar go to Edit > Define Pattern and type an appropriate name in the pop up box, then hit ‘OK': Going back to your working canvas, in the menu bar select Layer > New Fill Layer > Pattern. In the first pop up box that appears, you can leave everything as the default and click ‘OK’. In the second pop up box that appears, make sure the pattern we just created is selected (the most recently created pattern should be selected as default) and that the scale is set to 100%. Then, click ‘OK': Change the layer blend mode to Soft Light and drop the Opacity to 40% for a subtler effect: Great stuff! To keep things tidy and easy to locate, put all the layers we’ve just created in to a group called ‘Background’ and we’re ready to move on. ## Step 3: Next up, we’re going to use a little trick to create a perforated effect on the ticket. We want this to be at a specific position and we’ll set up a guide to help us. Go to View > New Guide and in the pop up box that appears make sure ‘vertical’ is selected and type ‘2 inch’ for the position: This gives us a guide exactly 2 inches in from the left of the canvas, and the perfect width for out ticket stub. On a new layer, select a simple sans-serif font like Helvetica Light or Arial. Set the font size to around 18pt and colour to white and type a continuous line using the ‘dash’ key. Stop when it looks like it should cover the height of the canvas: Rotate the text 90 degrees and position it against the guide we created: To create a more authentic perforated effect, we’ll add a subtle Drop Shadow with the following settings: Drop Shadow Settings: Opacity: 75% Angle: 150 Distance: 2px Spread: 0% Size: 2px You can see the difference it makes below: Lock the layer to the top and we’re ready for the next step. ## Step 4: We’ll now start properly digging in to the amazing fonts in this bundle! From the Alpha Extras freebies select the following graphic of the person carrying a guiar case: Paste it on to your Photoshop canvas so that it’s just to the right of the perforated line and approximately two-thirds of the height of the ticket (made red in the example so it’s easier to see): To make the image easier to see without it being quite so dramatic, we’ll add a clipped hue/saturation Adjustment Layer: Hue/Saturation Settings: Colourize: On Hue: 206 Saturation: 40 Lightness: 28 This gives us a nice, muted blue shade which feels far more appropriate for a jazz and blues music night! The solidity of the shape is a bit distracting, though. We’ll add a more suitable, rough texture by using a Layer Mask on our original image. One of the great things about this bundle is the variety of extras that come with the font sets. We’ll be using inspirational-creative-font-collection > Ian-Irwanwismoyo > Bowney Marowney > Rebel Edges > Texture Bonus > Bloody Halftoner.png for this step. Open Bloody Halftoner.png in a new Photoshop window: Using the Magic Wand Tool, click on any area outside of the dark dots then inverse the selection ( shift+command+I): Copy the selection, then go back to your working canvas. If you’ve not done so already, create a Layer Mask on our guitar man layer, then alt+click on the mask layer to edit and see it directly. Then, paste the selection we just made from the Bloody Halftoner.png and scale it down so it’s positioned similarly to below: Click anywhere in the layers panel to go back to your working canvas. You can adjust the position of the mask to your liking by un-linking the mask and image, which you can do by clicking on the link between the two in the layers panel. When you’re happy with the texture created, we’re ready to move on! ## Step 5: We’ll explore some of the extras a little further by going back to inspirational-creative-font-collection > Ian-Irwanwismoyo > Bowney Marowney > Rebel Edges and opening up strokes.psd. We’ll be using the following, Stroke 8: Copy and paste (or drag and drop) on to your working canvas, scaling and positioning similarly to below: We want to use this as a base to place some text on, so let’s add a clipped hue/saturation Adjustment Layer with the following settings: Hue/Saturation Settings: Colourize: On Hue: 40 Saturation: 55 Lightness: +90 Next up, we’re going to use a Layer Mask to crete a ‘cutout’ shape, using the same method as before. From the Alpha Extras locate and select the trumpet graphic: Copy and paste on to a new Photoshop document, flipping the image horizontally (Edit > Transform > Flip Horizontal). Use the Magic Wand Tool to click on any of the darker areas of the image to select it directly: As before, copy the selection and return to your working canvas. If you’ve not done so already, create a Layer Mask on our stroke8 layer, then alt+click on the mask layer to edit and see it directly. Paste the selection we just made of the trumpet in the lower right corner, then click anywhere in the layers panel to go back to your working canvas and see the mask. As you can see, the image is a bit too big. Not to worry! We can adjust this easily by unlinking the image and mask layer, then activate the mask layer icon to transform the shape as normal. Once you’ve scaled the trumpet to fit within the stroke, we’re good to go for the next step. ## Step 6: On a new layer, select #C24646 as the colour and use the Rectangular Marquee Tool to draw a rectangle that covers the brush stroke between the left edge of the canvas and the perforated line. Press ‘alt+delete’ on your keyboard to fill with the foreground colour : Change the blend mode to Multiply then clip to the hue/saturation layer below: Going back to inspirational-creative-font-collection > Ian-Irwanwismoyo > Bowney Marowney > Rebel Edges and opening up strokes.psd which we opened earlier, select Stroke 9: Copy & paste this on to your working canvas, scaling so that the width just about matches the baseline on the Guitar Man graphic. Use a clipped hue/saturation Adjustment Layer to apply the following settings: Hue/Saturation Settings: Colourize: On Hue: 0 Saturation: 0 Lightness: +85 Put all the layers we’ve just created in to a group called “Decorative” and we’re ready to start playing with some fonts! ## Step 7: The first font we’ll work with is Marujo Fino by Pintassilgo Prints. Set the size to 27pt and colour as #F1CA2E, then type “The Design Cuts Lounge” (or whatever groovy venue that takes your fancy :)) and position towards the upper right of the image: Next up, on a new layer change the font colour to #F9F5E4 and reduce the size to 17pt. Type “Presents” and position so that it’s aligned right below the original text: With the colour still set to #F9F5E4, select Rather Loud Bold by Pintassilgo Prints. With the font size at 60pt, type “Jazz & Blues Night”: This font family contains some rather cool ligatures, which add some interest. You can apply these by selecting the text you’ve just typed and going in to the Character panel. From there, make sure both the “Contextual Alternates” and “Discretionary Ligatures” are selected and you should see the changes instantly: Duplicate the text layer we just created and change the font colour to #C24646. Change the layer blend mode to Multiply and use the arrow keys to nudge the text slightly up and to the left. This gives the text a nice offset print effect, giving it a more tactile feel: ## Step 8: Now we know what we’re attending, we need to know when and where we need to arrive! With the font still as Rather Loud Bold, change the colour back to #F9F5E4. Set the font size as 34pt and type “Doors: 7pm”. Change the blend mode to Screen and drop the layer opacity to 35%: Duplicate the layer, changing the font colour to #C24646. Change the blend mode to Multiply and bring the Opacity back up to 95%. Again, use the arrow keys to nudge the text slightly right and down for that offset print effect: Repeat the process with the text “Moanin': Til Midnight”. Use #4D738E as the blue font colour and position the text so that it aligns with the bell of the trumpet: Finally for this step, we’ll add a venue location. Select Lulo One Bold by Yellow Design Studio as the font, 12pt size and the colour as #362D26. Set the layer blend mode to Multiply and Opacity to 95%, then type “49 Frith Street, Soho, London” or any suitable address for your venue. Position so that it aligns left with the “Doors…” text: ## Step 9: For the text on the ticket stub, I’ll give you an overview of the fonts, colours and sizes so you don’t have to read over the same steps over and over again, and can get to the finishing touches quicker £5.00 Font: Marujo Dotface Size: 64pt Colour: #F9F5E4 Admits One Font: Rather Loud Bold Size: 37.15pt (or so it’s the same width as ‘£5.00′) Colour: #F9F5E4 Ticket No. 017 Font: Ostrich Sans Ink Regular Size: 24pt (except for the ‘o’ in ‘No.’ which is 20pt) Colour: #C24646 Saturday August Font: Rather Loud Bold Size: Saurday: 24pt / August: 32pt Colour: #F9F5E4 30 Font: Rather Loud Bold Size: 62.5pt (or the same height as Saturday/August) Colour: #F9F5E4 Now we’ve got our funky text all sorted, we can move on to adding some finishing touches and textures. ## Step 10: We’ll give the ticket a slightly ‘rough round the edges’ feel using the inspirational-creative-font-collection > Ian-Irwanwismoyo > Bowney Marowney > Rebel Edges > 01.png. Paste on to your canvas, scaling so that the edges go over the outside slightly: Change the blend mode to Soft Light for a subtler effect: To give the edges a faded, rather than darker effect, add a clipped hue/saturation layer with the following settings: Hue/Saturation Settings: Colourize: On Hue: 30 Saturation: 40 Lightness: +75 ## Step 11: Next, we need to download this awesome paper texture from Bashcorpo: Paper Texture 6 I’ve gone for Texture 6 as it’s got a warm, reddish hue to it, which reflects some of the text. Paste on to your canvas, scaling to fit and rotating clockwise: Change the blend mode to Multiply and drop the Opacity to 20% to add a subtle, warm tone to the image: ## Step 12: For the next texture layer, we’ll be using the original Old Paper Texture by caminopalmero that we used in the background. You can duplicate the version in our “Background” group and just Invert again to return to the original colour: Change the blend mode to Vivid Light and drop the Opacity way down to 10%: ## Step 13: Finally, navigate to inspirational-creative-font-collection > Ian-Irwanwismoyo > Bowney Marowney > Rebel Edges > Texture Bonus > Halftoner-full.png: Paste on to your Photoshop canvas, scaling to fit and rotating clockwise: To finish off, change the blend mode to Soft Light and reduce the Opacity to 80%: ## And we’re done! I really hope you enjoyed doing this tutorial – maybe you could even try a variation to create an event poster to go with the tickets?

1. I will be honest, I had to go through this collection a few times to take it all in. The variety of it all is quite fascinating, to say the least!

Always love grunge, but… LOVE LOVE LOVE the polka dots and 3D effects. Some of the fonts give the impression that you can actually touch them ~as they are so raised off the screen!

This absolutely a unique and outstanding collection. Quite honestly I’ve never seen these before! Trying to think how I can use them!

WELL DONE Design Cuts!

BTW, it did not say specifically… Are the “Desktop” fonts included in the package as well as the Web fonts?

BTW2, I’m absolutely in love with the last font – the one that says LIGHT. It appears as if its made with “light bulbs!” (like in the theater)

• Tom Ross says:

Thanks for the kind words Roz, this is one of my favourite deals too :).

The variety is definitely something I wanted in this collection, and hopefully it will serve the DC community well across a range of projects. I love the 3D style fonts too, as they include so many alternate versions it gives you loads of creative control.

Desktop fonts are most definitely included yes, the web fonts are also there as an extra bonus though.

Oh, and the ‘Light’ font image is actually done entirely using fonts, no images, if you can believe it. The shadow effect and dotted text are all part of that particular font family :).

• Hi Tom:

I’m anxious to play with these fonts. Are they all done with the fonts, or are some done with images as well, where the fonts look raised/3D-ish?

I was in Photoshop most of the afternoon, after a longgggg hiatus. I had a bit of re-acquainting to do, but it was great fun and VERY relaxing.

• Tom Ross says:

Hey Roz! Amazingly the 3D examples are done entirely using fonts, as the 3D style fonts allow for so many styles to be built up, you can achieve some really incredible effects, without the need for images. I’d love to see the results of your afternoon Photoshopping :).

• Leann Warren says:

The “Light” image appears to have a semi-transparent glow around the dots. Is that a setting? I can’t seem to re-create it. Thanks!

• Tom Ross says:

Hey Leann, great question. The glow isn’t part of the font, but can easily be applied as a layer blend mode once you type out the text you need. Marujo has a range of awesome variations, including a solid font with dots, and a font that consists only of dots. By layering up variations of the font, and adding in your own layer blending options and layer styles, you can create some amazing results, without ever needing to use images. I hope this helps :).

2. Anna-Emilia says:

Nice! Most of the fonts support Finnish, yeah! And I would assume that those support Swedish, also support Finnish, since our alphabets are the same
If I still have money left, I believe I must have this deal! (Since I am still annoyed about the previous font deal that I couldn’t get it :P)

• Anna:

Sometimes there is a second opportunity to purchase old “related” packages. So you might get an opportunity to buy the font package again!

Hope this helps!

Roz Fruchtman
@PhotoshopHaven

• Tom Ross says:

Thanks Roz! We definitely do do this, although for the last font deal, we’re waiting to hear back from one designer before being able to potentially offer it as any kind of private bonus for you guys. I’ll keep you both posted on this though.

• Tom Ross says:

Yep, that should be fine Anna-Emilia :). Language support was a priority for us with this bundle, as we have so many nationalities within our community here. I’m glad the Finnish variations are useful for you.

I’ll drop you an email about the previous deal and of course we can try to help.

• Anna-Emilia says:

Thanks Tom for the email. But I’m actually more happy with this current deal, so I got it. Thanks!

• Tom Ross says:

Awesome stuff :). We actually were able to re-run the older deal, so good news there. You should see the private banner for this in your account.

3. Randy W says:

WOW! What a great offering. I’ve been eyeing a few of these lately and I am always excited about a font release from Yellow Design Studios. Cant wait to get my hands on this deal! I missed the last one you had but this just made my day.

• Tom Ross says:

Thanks for the great review Randy, that’s wonderful to hear :). Ryan at Yellow Design Studios is a great guy, and we’re huge fans of his work too. Lulo is awesome to work with, so please do let us know how you get on, we’d love to see your work.

4. Julie Lalonde says:

I have loved ALL the font packages so far and this one is not an exception, love love love it

• Tom Ross says:

Thank you Julie, this is one of my favourites too :). I hope you have lots of fun using your new fonts.

5. Caleb Allen says:

As a young artist just getting started, I can’t express how much I love these font bundles it’s really helping me grow my resources and tools for doing my job ha. Thank you guys so much, this site and what you guys do is a godsend!

Thanks again,
Caleb

• Tom Ross says:

That’s amazing to hear Caleb, and exactly what we want to achieve with these bundles. Fonts can be very expensive normally, so to see so many of the DC community benefiting from these more affordable bundles is always great.

Keep up the great work, and please do feel free to send any new designs our way, I’d love to check them out.

6. Lorraine Janzen says:

Hmmm… another font deal. And they look fantastic. Great for posters. And maybe some packaging items. I’ll just have to get this one in a day or two.

Tom, you mentioned the possibility of some of the older deals occasionally being available again. Any chance that includes the 2 Lil Owls Creative Textures and Digital Papers Collection? I got the first one but wasn’t able to get this when it came around. If it does become available again, I’d love to get it.
thanks,
Lorraine

• Hi Lorraine:

It’s Roz, I DO NOT work for Design Cuts. Just an avid Design Cutter who LOVES this community. I try to help when I am around and I know the answer (or think I do).

Generally the return offers are related to the current offer. For example: This period’s offer is Fonts, so generally Fonts are offered as the return offers.

Of course, if I am incorrect Tom or Tina will correct me

But I too missed one of 2 lil’ owls offers when I first found this community and I got it when there was another 2 lil’ owls offer as it was offered as a return offer.

Hope this helps.

Roz Fruchtman
@PhotoshopHaven

• Tina Muller says:

You’re absolutely correct, Roz. We usually re-run an older deal that is in some way related to the new, current deal. So in this instance we’re offering a new fonts deal, which is acompanied by a bonus font deal, that was on offer some time ago. We also make sure to email the members who have shown interest in an expired bundle, once that deal is available again.

• Hi Tina:

I was pretty sure I was right, but one never knows.

I remember when I first found you all I had missed one of 2 lil’ owls and also a font package.

The font package I had seen, but did not understand about Open Type Fonts, so passed on it. After I watched a class on fonts, I saw my mistake and grabbed it the next time it was offered when another font deal was available.

The 2 lil’ owls package came about when you had her products as the featured deal. By that time I became acquainted with everyone and the community and did not hesitate!

It’s a good feature to bring back the older deals as bonus offers.

Hope all’s well and Tom is resting

Roz

• Lorraine Janzen says:

Thanks, thought I was writing Tom. Small iPhone screens!

• Tina Muller says:

Hey Lorraine. Thanks so much for the kind words! Let us know if you create anything with these new fonts.

With regards to the 2 Lil Owls Creative Textures and Papers, they will most definitley be offered again, as they haven’t had their re-run yet. I’ll email you as soon as it is available again.

7. Liv Esteban says:

0.25sec = the amount of time it took me to hit the Buy button. Seriously. This deal is awesome (as always), the extended licensing is even more awesome (as always), and you guys are the most awesome (again, as always)!

• Tina Muller says:

Haha did you actually time it, Liv Thanks so much for your awesome comment. It’s so great to hear you’re enjoying the bundles so much. As always, if you do create something with your new resources, please do send us some of the designs.

8. Richard says:

Another fantastic font deal. I love this collection that you have put together. Plus an exclusive font too. You guys are too much! Thank you for the effort you put into these deals. So, credit card at the ready…

• Tina Muller says:

Thank you so much Richard! I know you love your fonts, and I really hope that this bundle will be of great use to you. If you can show off any of your work, please do. We’d love to see some of your new designs.

9. Douglas Bartow says:

I bought this set because of the fonts drawn by Tyler Finck. Really nice stuff, a superstar in the making for sure.

• Tina Muller says:

Great stuff, Douglas! Let us know if you designs something with Tyler Finck’s fonts. I’d love to see what you create with them.

10. Chris says:

Hello DesignCuts,

This will probably come out sounding like a weird question but I just wanted to be totally sure on the licensing. I know it says you can use these in commercial designs you intend to sell, but say I design a t-shirt and sell it myself, that is okay. What if that same t-shirt design is sold on a site like Spreadshirt, where you upload your design to make a commission on it every time someone purchases the shirt? Would this still fall within the licensing since Spreadshirt/site would be the one processing the sale?

The font files themselves would not be transfered to anyone, just the design itself.

Thank you very much, looking forward to more of your deals!

• Tom Ross says:

Hey Chris, great question! Yup, that would be absolutely fine, as you’re not redistributing the fonts, or allowing them to be used or extracted by any third party. Once you create a t-shirt design, you’re free to do whatever you want with it. It’s the beauty of extended licensing :). I hope this helps, and if you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to let us know.

• Chris says:

Tom,
Thank you very much for the information! Tina told me you were really busy, so to get responses this quick really says a lot about you guys and what you do. I also have to thank Tina tremendously! She kept up with my emails and kept me updated. You guys are truly some of the nicest people I have ever come across online!! By far best customer service I’ve ever had! Thank you all again!

• Tom Ross says:

No problem at all Chris, happy to help :). That’s a HUGE compliment, and really means the world to the whole team here. Thank you so much for all the support, and if you need anything at all, we’re here for you.

• Tina Muller says:

Well Tom really said it all. Thank you so much for your amazing support and kind words. We really really appreciate it. Enjoy your new fonts!

11. Chris Ford says:

OK, another gorgeous bunch. Now please can you stop it, I cannot resist!

• Tina Muller says:

Haha sorry about that! I really hope you’ll enjoy all the fonts though. Let us kow if you create anything with them.

• Chris Ford says:

Will do… can anyone recommend a good font preview app for the mac? I’ve got hundreds of great fonts now and remembering what I have is becoming a problem!

• Tina Muller says:

There are different ways of organising you’re fonts. You can use FontBook for instance, which is a great way of organising fonts. It can glitch sometimes, when instaling certain fonts through it, simply because it is impossible for every single font to be compatible with FontBook, but just a usual manual install will fix that. I also know that Adobe Brigde is a great program for organising files in general, however I’m not 100% sure how well it works with fonts, so FontBook, might be a better option. I hope that helps.

• Tina Muller says:

That sounds really cool actually. Thanks so much for sending us the link. Although I think you will still need FontBook, in order to be able to make the sample script document. But sounds like a gret asset to orgaising your fonts.

• Carol Abel says:

I use the Linotype Font Explorer X for Mac. The best font viewer I ever came across was a Windows one and that’s why I’ve kept my trusty laptop with the fonts linked through my Dropbox account so that I can view them there. Here’s an old link to some font management apps (Windows and Mac):

12. Ludvik Herrera says:

I’ve been craving a font bundle since I let many pass by. I saw the current deal and I without hesitation bought it. Then, to my surprise I saw the bonus option to buy the massive artistic font deal, and it was a great surprise. Now you’ve made me crave more fonts! Now that I have this two deals, is there a chance for an extra bonus bonus to buy the monster creative font deal?!?! That would be sweet!

• Tina Muller says:

Hey Ludvik I’m afraid that the Monsert Creative Font Bundle is not available at the moment, as we finished it original run and re-run some time ago. I’ll be sure to email you thouhg, sholud we decide to bring it back again.

• Ludvik Herrera says:

Thank you very much Tina, very kind of you of following up with me through email as well. I appreciate this deals, please do keep me informed.

• Tina Muller says:

No problem at all, Ludvik. I’ll be sure to get in touch if the Monster Creative Font Bundle goes live again.

• Tina:

Do you not bring things back more than once?

• Tina Muller says:

We haven’t re-run a deal more than once so far, but I’m sure there is a possibility that we might do that in the future. We try to not offer bundles for too long, or too often as we don’t want to degrade their value, if that makes sense?

• Hi Tina & Tom:

I understand, but New people discover you all the time and these people have NEVER seen any of the bundles. I doubt, if those who are regulars would mind. If they have them, they can just ignore the offer!

Sometimes people are away, can’t buy during that period or whatever, or like me that time I missed one, when I first found you guys… I actually saw it when it was offered, but was not familiar with open type fonts. After sitting in on a class at @CreativeLIVE (via the web), I saw one of the fonts I rejected here, in the class demo. Suddenly I wanted it and realized the error of my ways, LOL.

When it was offered again I grabbed it.

Roz

13. Gene Hoffman says:

I’m also missed and am interested in the previous font package. Please let me know if it becomes available again.

14. mindy sommers says:

Big hugs to my friends Tom and Tina. Love the fonts. Verrry cool for vintage work. My agent is reaaallly pushing me for moar vintage, all the time. These come in so handy. Very nice package I just used “Frontage” and it was really fabulous. <3

• Tina Muller says:

Thanks so much for the support, Mindy. I’m so glad to hear you’re liking the fonts, and that they help you with your work. You know I love your floral designs. If I ever buy a house I will buy my bathroom and kitchen tiles from you.

15. Paul Massey says:

I have just downloaded the massive artistic font bundle that I missed out on, I got the link from Tina posted above. It’s awesome. I just love your site and can not wait to begin meddling about with this pack.
worth every penny !!!

• Tina Muller says:

Thank you so much for the kind words, Paul. Sounds like it was a good idea to re-run the Massive Artistic Font Bundle. I’m really pleased you like it. If you create something using your new resources, please do send us some of the designs. We’d love to see what you’re working on.

16. Carrie says:

I absolutely love these font bundles … I have bought every one so far! You guys are seriously feeding my font addiction. I even have a ring binder with pages of font specimens printed out for each font, (all categorised by style of course!) so I can flip through and choose what amazing font I want to use next. I have too many fonts to remember otherwise… but these deals are going to cause me to require a big fat ‘Fontalicious Fun Binder’ No. 2!!!

• Tina Muller says:

Aw thank you so much Carrie! That’s the best compliment for our fonts. I absolutely love your idea of a Fontalicious Fun Binder. I thinks it’s just so much easier to actually flick through, rather than going through your fonts on your computer. Although I do know there are some awesome font organizing programs out there. But there’s just something fun and satisfying about flicking through actual pages. A bit like catalogue shopping.

• Carrie Green says:

Hi Tina,

I do have a couple of different font management apps, but yes, flicking through nice bright colour images is so much more fun. I track down specimens from the font foundry and also examples uploaded by other designers. It really helps to inspire me when I see all the cool ways other people are using the various fonts. I see so many possibilities when I look at them … I just wish I could take a photographic snapshot of my thoughts and file them in the same binder!!

• Tina Muller says:

Ah wouldn’t that be cool, being able to take snapshots of the ideas in your brain. Well maybe in a few decades we’ll have the technology for that.

• leahm@desautelhege.com says:

I love this font binder idea too. Do you have any links to pictures of it? I’d like to build something like this for our studio.

17. Hey guys:

another great bundle.

I am loving the ‘stacked’ font types that are becoming popular like Lulo.

18. Teresa says:

In the next few weeks I plan to buy a WordPress site template. I have viewed WordPress tutorials and created a basic WordPress site, but would say, this is really new for me. I want to use fonts from the Marujo collection in headers and content for a website. I see it says, “This font included web versions.” What does that mean exactly? Do the fonts look the same? Thank you.

• Tina Muller says:

Hey Teresa, web fonts look exactly the same as the desktop fonts. The only difference is that they can be loaded directly into a website. So if you’re looking to use any of our fonts for your new website, you’ll be good to go. They’re basically just in a different font formats, so that they’re compatible with web programs, and such. I hope that helps.

19. Angela Cosentino says:

This was a great tutorial. Very fun outcome as well. The fonts used here are exquisite additions to my constantly changing collection. Free fonts are nice to start out with, but you don’t get the flexibility that these fonts give you. Definitely a great bundle to work with.

• Tina Muller says:

Thanks so much for the kind words, Angela! It’s great to hear you’ve enjoyed the tutorial and our new fonts. I’d love to see your final outcome of the tutorial, so please do feel free to send us your designs.

20. sanjidasfinance@gmail.com says:

This fantastic pack is now mine. Alhamdulillah!

I am looking forward to seeing some equally impressive tutorials that will show us some ways in which these fonts can be best used in projects.

Keep up the GREAT work, Designcuts!

21. Leah says:

Hi guys, this is an awesome bundle alright! I can’t miss this one. Will be purchasing tonight.

Could anyone please tell me if the last bundle (the patterns/mountains one) will be offered in the future? I’m interested, and when I went to purchase, found it had expired. oops

• Tina Muller says:

Hey Leah, we will most likely re-run the Gigantic Vector Elements Bundle. I’ll be sure to get in touch with you as soon as it is live again.
Should you see the Inspirational Creative Font Collection expired, when you’re trying to grab it, you can just drop me an email, and I’ll see what I can do for you.

I love all these typography poster tutorials but unfortunately don’t have Adobe Illustrator. I use PSE 11. Would it be possible to create a tutorial specifically aimed at us PSE users, pretty please?

• Tina Muller says:

Hey Carol, I know we do have a fair amount of PSE users in our community. I’m not sure if we can dedicate a whole tutorial to just PSE, however I’ll speak to Tom to see if we can add different options for PSE in the tutorials, or at least offer links to other PSE based tutorials. If you need something in the meantime, please just let me know what kind of resource you’re looking at using, and I’ll have a look, to see if I can find something suitable online.

37. Kathryn says:

Please let me know when the deal will be on again, so sad I missed this one

38. Melissa Haggit says:

Why oh whyyyyyy didn’t I find you guys earlier??? SMH

I purchased the last bundle deal and fell in LOVE with everything that was offered. I regrettably clicked on the past deals button and am devastated that I have lost out on all of the amazing-ness offered.

If we are subscribed to the mailing list will we get updates on if/when deals may be re-run?

Crossing fingers in Florida,
Mel

• Tina Muller says:

Hey Melissa,

You will definitely get updates of any new deal via the newsletter. If you let me know which bundles you were interested in particularly, I will personally drop you an email when they are available again. I can also tell you that Tom is working on a really nice new font bundle, which you might find very interesting.

39. Elisha says:

I’m new to Design Cuts. I just purchased the Massive Patterns, Textures and Backgrounds Bundle, and you refer to this in the deal tutorial. OMG what a tease – I would have so bought this deal too! ARRRGH!

• Tina Muller says:

I’m so sorry you couldn’t grab this deal, Elisha. While I can’t get you set up with this right now, I’ll be sure to get in touch with you as soon as it is available again.

40. Gabrielle Miller says:

I am so glad you brought this back, I just flat didn’t have the ability to get it last time. Too bad I had to buy a more expensive deal to get this one, which is TOTALLY awesome! Oh well

• Tina Muller says:

Ah awesome! I’m so pleased for you. I’ve you miss out on any other bundles in the future, just drop me an email, and I’ll be sure to get in touch with you when it’s available again.
