Quotes on Shit    |    http://quotesonshit.tumblr.com

We all use so much shit. We collect shit, buy shit, steal shit, trade shit and then throw shit away. So what happens with all this old shit? Is there a life after it leaves our hands? Shit winds up in our garbage, on our streets, in our landfills, and in our junk shops. QOS feel bad for this abandoned and rejected shit so they’re rescuing these objects and breathing new life into them by giving them a voice with words. They want to turn old shit into new shit, and give them a second chance to be loved and help find this shit a new home. QOS is a side project by Jessica Walsh and Timothy Goodman.

Friday Freebies: Free Typeface Anke

Noe Araujo   |    http://ankesans.com

Anke is a geometric, simple yet legible Sans Serif typeface made by Noe Araujo. For his first non-experimental type, it meant the conception of the need of a earnest but always cool font for his projects, something in between Futura with a kind of orbed structure was pictured on his mind.

Uppercase, lowercase and diacritic characters came in along 3 full days. As for its tittle it came across the credit of The Bauer Type Foundry and a common German girl name. - Download Anke for free here.

Have / know a freebie that you want to share? - Feel free to send it!
