  • I love free fonts!

    • i used to feel that way but there are sooooo many terrible ones it makes me very wary of downloading any. this one’s good though.

  • I guess I should have clarified. I love quality free fonts. There are definitely a shit ton of free fonts and most of them suck :) Thanks for wading through the muck and finding us a winner!

  • download worthy. thanks.

  • Oh, I love the book look. Thanks for the link!

  • thank-you

    see if i can put this to use

  • Am

    This font reminds me of the writing exercises little kids (including myself, last time – I still remember!) do in school, where they have to trace the dotted lines of each alphabet so they can learn to write the letter correctly. :D
    I like it dashed!

  • D

    Often is quite nice, but do take note of the license before using it.

  • DB

    THIS is the BEST free font of 2008?!? All the others must have REALLY sucked. Seriously, not sure what the big deal is with this font. I would never use this, and no-one in my design studio would either. OFTEN font was better than this one…

  • haha so angry, thanks for your input

  • I wonder if DB stands for Deuche Bag.

  • DB

    Brian, it stands for DOUCHE Bag (not “DEUCHE”). And in regards to the font, I suppose it’s not TOO bad and perhaps could be used for… No, it really is just awful.

  • DB, what design studio do you work for out of curiosity?

“15/20” by Photographer Neta Dror

 

In 2011, Tel Aviv-based photographer Neta Dror photographed 6 Israeli teens, returning 5 years later to photograph them each again. Now in their 20s, Dror notes that the biggest change isn’t physical but emotional:

“It was incredible to see how differently they presented themselves to me and to the camera: all grew more confident and were less willing to expose themselves. It was clear they were now more aware of who they are and what part of themselves they wanted to show.”

Illustrator Kyung Me explores the various ways we construct false identities in romantic relationships with a series of drawings surrounding a character named Copy Kitty. Going to great lengths to be accepted and adored, Copy Kitty gradually descends into a vortex of fantasy and paranoia. Check out more images from Me’s elaborate narrative series below.
