Deal of the Week: Verb, Family of 72 Superb Fonts for 50 Cent Each

Our Deal of the Week features a font family for which the term "family" is not really fitting as a family is a comparably small unit of society. Verb, which by the way is the name of our featured font "family", is more like a font tribe with its 72 different fonts. Verb is able to suit any modern design with one or the other part of its tribe’s members. From decently serious to happily partying, any message can be conveyed convincingly. Verb is like the mother of all Sans Serifs, to be a little pathetic…

Banksy in New York: Controversy, Adversity, and Exposure

As all of the art world knows by now, Banksy, the elusive street artist from the UK has spent the entire month of October in New York. He left 27 works of art in various locations of New York, plus a landscape oil painting “vandalized”, an unpublished op-ed for The New York Times, and two videos plus a free t-shirt graphic for fans on his website. Appropriately named Better Out Than In, Banksy clearly reveals in the header of the website that his New York trip is about his conviction that art should be found outside of galleries to be easily seen and enjoyed by the masses.

October 2013: 10 Best Free Hi-Res Photos by Unsplash

A few months ago we introduced you to Unsplash.com, a project by Ooomf. Since then they kept promise and regularly released new images. Quality varies though. That’s why we decided to help separate the wheat from the chaff by publishing only the 10 best images released in October 2013. We do not necessarily choose those photos with the highest level of photographic artistry, but our eye is more on usefulness. Which photos are good to support articles, designs and such without showing too much uniqueness to render them unusable without their original context. That said: have fun and do whatever you want with these gorgeous photos…

Noupe’s Favorites 44/2013: The Best Links of the Week

If you follow our accounts in the various social networks out and about, you’re certainly aware that we are posting loads of additional content there. Be it links to freebies, tutorials, interesting articles or other things worth mentioning. We dig up a lot in the widths and depths of the web. And we do actually share content, that hasn’t been created by our own team. One of these days we got a friendly email by one of our dear readers, asking us to not only publish these additionals in the social networks as this reader as well as many others are refusing to get engaged in socializing. In times of Prism and Tempora we can perfectly understand this approach. So we decided to curate the best links of each past week into one weekly article, starting today. Here you go…

Techi.com: All the Tech News You Need

There is a problem, we as designers have. We need to stay updated on the latest trends in web design and development. That’s time-consuming enough, but definitely mandatory.

Techi.com has you covered…
