February was an active month for many typefoundries, like Latinotype which released 3 typefaces this month: Showcase (beautiful script font), Australis and Ride My Bike Serif. Ride My Bike Serif as the name says is a variant of the original Ride My Bike, it’s curious how this month other designers released variants of previous typefaces: Kermel Serif, Pacific Northwest, Lust Slim and Core Magic were examples of this trend on the month. Others designers decide to launch all the variants of a typeface at the same time, this is the case of the family Bandera (original, text and display), which by the way, was also released this month.
If we should choose 3 winners of the month for best typefaces (based on sales, aesthetics and personal taste), we go for this guys:

Moment of Glory by Robert C. Jackson

"It’s said often that negative space-sometimes called white space (even thought there might not be any white around)-is more important that the stuff that’s in it. For the most part, this is true. Space calls attention to content, separates it from unrelated content around it, and gives the eyes a resting place. Negative space is just as much a shape that you have to deal with in a composition as positive shapes, whether pictures or type. When you don’t deal with it at all, negative space feels dead and disconnected from the visual material it surrounds. If the space gets filled up, the result is an oppressive presentation that no one will want to deal with. A lack of negative space overwhelms and confuses the audience, which is likely to get turned off"

2014 Oscar Nominees // Saul Bass Remixed
To make the task of creating alternative movie posters for this year’s Oscar nominees a little more interesting, I decided to limit myself to solely remixing famous work of Saul Bass instead of making something completely new. This way my options were very restricted, but at the same time it made the process of finding the solution of representing a movie visually somehow easier (confirming the known rule of ‘limitations driving creativity’).
