desiderata

Introducing Desiderata from Tortuga Studio, a must have typeface for vintage lovers. It is inspired by the the good old days, hand-crafted art and artisans of the past. Desiderata is intended to convey that hand made aesthetics of neo-nostalgia and vintage feeling many of designers are trying to embrace nowadays. Each letter was hand drawn with great attention then accurately digitized with slightly imperfect edges to ensure that vintage authenticity and feel of age.

It is a great idea to use it for logos, inspirational quotes, t-shirt graphics, typography art, apparel, labels, badges, posters,business cards, stylized wedding invitations, prints, signs, emblems, book cover designs headlines, titles, etc.

Desiderata is the display sans serif typeface that comes with all the essential glyphs, numbers, punctuation marks, currency symbols and multilingual characters. One of the most distinctive traits of it is that its lowercase letters have the small caps design.

Desiderata also has some cool extra features that make it more handy and versatile. There is nothing more dull than a typeface imitating handwriting but showing two identical glyphs in the places with double letters, as in ‘pretty’ for example. So I've created additional set of letters with slightly different design to let you achieve more natural and sophisticated handdrawn look of your designs by having choice between different variants of the same character. Another great feature of Desiderata is that every small cap letter has up to 12 swash alternates, that gives you a wide range of decorative possibilities (see preview images). This font has more than 1000 glyphs in total.

INCLUDED:

  • The Desiderata typeface OTF

Each letter was carefully hand-painted with brush and ink, then meticulously and professionally vectorized with minimally necessary amount of the anchor points to ensure smooth and clean outlines. After that letters were prepared for digital typesetting using pretty excellent Glyphs software.

Signorita features upper and lowercase characters, punctuation glyphs, numerals, diacritical marks, currency symbols and international language support.

Signorita comes in two flavors - Signorita & Signorita Rough. The only difference between them is that the latter features intentionally uneven distressed edges to give the letters a bit of that natural vintage look of warp and age.

priman layered

Introducing Priman, a layered serif display font from Cobra Labs!

Priman is a thick roman style font that comes in three sets, Clean, Rough, and Extras, all in both .ttf and .otf. Priman is good anyplace you'd like a fat serif type with a bit more personality. I've included a guide with some layering ideas (Bottom Right Image - Click To Enlarge), but there are many more possibilities.

Use either Solid or Outline alone or with fills and shadows. Halftone fills and shadows look great with either Solid or Outline, and also layer well on top of full fills and shadows. Use a fill behind an Outline font and move it a bit to look like off-registration printing. Use two halftones on top of each other - the only rules are there are no rules!

INCLUDED:

  • Priman Clean - 4 fonts: Solid, Outline, Fill, and Shadow, with sharp clean edges. OTF/TTF
  • Priman Rough - 4 fonts: Solid, Outline, Fill, and Shadow, but with slightly roughed up edges that will show best at larger sizes. OTF/TTF
  • Priman Extras - 2 distressed halftone fills and 2 distressed halftone shadows.

 

 

20 beaten halftone textures

20 Halftone and 6 Scuff Textures by Cobra Labs. They range from subtle to heavy. These were all scanned from the yellowed pages of very old digest size periodicals. Each file is 4600x3400 at 300 ppi.

There is a transparent background png raster of each as well as a somewhat crunchier CS6 ai and CS3 eps vector. In a couple cases where a certain effect was achieved better with raster, I've included an extra for that purpose

Try them full strength for bold texturing, or color overlay just a bit darker or lighter than your background color for subtle texturing. Interesting effects can be made by combining textures, or deleting part of a texture (for just a corner, say), and exploring masking, blend modes, opacity, and fill.

INCLUDED:

  • 6 Scuff Textures - CS3 EPS, CS6 AI, PNG
  • 20 Halftone Textures - CS3 EPS, CS6 AI, PNG
