Ten Dollar Fonts: Hardy    |    Official Store

Hardy is a display typeface whose circular cuts replace each angled intersection. For every 45° and 90° angle, there is a circle to soften the edge while still maintaining the typeface’s chiseled appearance. Each circle’s size is determined by the measure of the angle. The result is a largely masculine, yet somewhat awkward geometric face with strong personality.

Hardy is designed by Wade Jeffree, a New York based Designer, Art Director and metal-loving Vegan originally from Melbourne, Australia. Wade currently works at Sagmeister And Walsh.

"The ‘A’ symbol embodies my own aesthetic and approach to design. It is clean, minimal and typographic. No more than it needs to be a simple representation of my work. The overall identity is strong with impact but also retains an elegant feel. I used a collection of design associated words as a visual element, some using alliteration and some not. A photo of me when I was two adds to the character and extends the visual language making it even more personal."

Aaron Canning is a graphic designer from Dublin, Ireland. He is extremely passionate about typography, book design and everything minimal. His work has a strong emphasis on structure, simplicity and clarity to convey his brief as accurately and precisely as possible.

"Cristina and Cyla painted a wall in Bushwick, Brooklyn, as a tribute to the great poet Paulo Leminski who would be 70 years old in August 2014. We are very grateful to our new friend Nev (No Entry Design), for all the support and contact with Livestream Public who gave us the opportunity to paint this mural at the corner of Morgan Ave & Stagg St."

Criatipos emerged alongside the professional career of designers Cris, Cyla, Doo and Jack as a means to escape from the digital realm and to bring back handmade processes, blending work and fun to communicate in a unique approach.

Quote of the week (08/09/2014):

Wasted Rita    |    http://wastedrita.com    |    Facebook

Wasted Rita is a graphic designer and illustrator conceived in New Jersey, based in Lisbon. She is a natural born agent provocateur, sarcastic as needed and a full-time thinker who must write about life, human behaviors and play with words in order to keep breathing.

She studied in a religious college and grew up listening to Black Flag, turning out to be a harsh mixture between Jesus Christ and punk-rock. Rough and rude at first sight, above all, just a passionate kid doing what she thinks she should.
