Yana Bereziner : Nordic Font

Fred Showker's Creative Tidbits

Yana Bereziner, Web Designer, Graphic Designer from Kyiv, Ukraine must have been influenced by the Nordsmen of yore!
      Nordic is a unique Display Face, that was created from the inspiration of norwegian runes. Since it is a distinctive logotype it will work best in large, open settings like posters, headlines, t-shirt designs and uses where the typography is uninhibited.
This is just one weight, there are two faces with 3 weights and you can pick up the full version!

The Lord of the Fonts: a guide to fonts in The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings

Fred Showker's Creative Tidbits

What would the Lord of the Rings trilogy be without its iconic logo? The chiseled yellow letters are pretty close to perfection where movie logos are concerned. But that’s not the only instance of certain characteristic typefaces used throughout the trilogy and its marketing. Most of them have recurred in the new Hobbit films – but what exactly are they and where can they be obtained?
      Fonts do matter. Sometimes a correct typeface is the one thing that makes a difference between a promising, but rather obvious fan art and a professional-looking artwork.

Well if you want true advertising concept design, here it is. If you were to design the perfect ad for beach goers, what would your dream up? Draftfcb Brazil developed a magazine insert with solar panels and a USB port affixed to it that could be used by beach goers in Brazil to charge their phones so they never have to leave the beach.
