10 free fonts that don’t suck.

It’s Christmas in August thanks to Neo2. They’re sharing a whole bunch of fonts (some better than others) all of which are totally free! Mac/PC! I picked out at least 10 that don’t suck! Head on over there, click on an image and then hit “ACEPTAR” to download. They even have a font based off the lasertype I featured awhile ago!

This was supposed to be the first image in the post but I changed my mind. I just couldn’t trash this little guy, so here he sits, after the “more” button, totally useless. (This collection of rolled paper letters is also available on Neo2!)

    cheers angie – you definitely get what you pay for with fonts and you’d have to pick your spots when using these but as far as free fonts go i was surprised how good some of them were

OURO Collective Presents “PACE” and “Kaleido”

OURO-PACE-KALEIDO

 

Heads up for anyone in the Vancouver area, our friends OURO Collective are presenting their new show featuring two works “PACE” (choreographed by OURO) and “Kaleido” (choreographed by Tentacle Tribe). Their work combines street and contemporary dance in a really unique way, and I’m excited to see this show. I’ve shot a couple of their rehearsals and have been planning a project with them in the future!

This is an event for anybody (all ages), and I especially recommend it if you’re a creative person – seeing a lot more dance shows in the past couple years has really inspired the things I’m working on in unexpected ways.

There are 3 evening shows May 5th-7th @ 7:30pm, and 1 matinee show May 8th @ 1:30pm. Advance tickets are available online here.

FYI tickets are slightly cheaper online vs at the door, and their previous show sold out and people were turned away at the door. The show has been kindly sponsored by Converse, with on-going support from Craft Academy SalonSpotlight Dance Centre and Anna Wyman School of Dance Arts.
