Fonts of the Month: June. Free fonts and many discounts on sans serif.

We are in the half of the year, a huge amount of fabulous fonts has been released this year. This past month of June wasn’t the exception and even go too far in the typography community, as big amount of fonts were released. I think I will make the part 2 of the best fonts of this months because this short list isn’t enough to show you great new typefaces that deserve a mention.

The master Rene Bieder release a new typeface named Choplin, which goes directly to the top of the list of hot new fonts of myfonts. Libertad by Roberto Díaz (designer of Quiroga) is also one of my favourites this month. Good News Sans by Kyle Benson is another remarkable typeface this month. Less words and more letters check the list.

Fabergé Fractals by Tom Beddard

Scotland-based laser physicist-turned-artist and web developer Tom Beddard, aka subBlue, has produced a number of intriguing geometric forms he refers to as Fabergé Fractals. Like an ornate Fabergé egg, Beddard’s creations boast brilliant and intricate design patterns. The English artist uses a formulaic method to create his digitally rendered three-dimensional models.

Beddard explains: “The 3D fractals are generated by iterative formulas whereby the output of one iteration forms the input for the next. The formulas effectively fold, scale, rotate or flip space. They are truly fractal in the fact that more and more detail can be revealed the closer to the surface you travel.

"The fascinating aspect is where combinations of parameters can combine to create structural ‘resonances’ of extraordinary detail and beauty—sometimes naturally organic and other times perfectly geometric. But then like a chaotic system it can completely disappear with the smallest perturbation."

Embroidered Landscapes by Ana Teresa Barboza

Using embroidery, yarn, and and wool artist Ana Teresa Barboza creates landscapes and other imagery that exists in the space between tapestry and sculpture. Mimicking the flow of waves or grass, each piece seems to tumble from its embroidery hoop where it flows down the gallery wall. Most of the pieces seen here are from her 2013 Suspension series, though you can see more on her blog (be sure to click “entrar” next to each item). You can also read a bit more about her work on Now Contemporary Art. (via ThisIsColossal)

Distortion Bag by Bao Bao Issey Miyake

Bao Bao Issey Miyake and N&R Foldings both attempt to create new experiences with bags. The two have come together to evolve the futuristic, origami-inspired bag ‘Distortion’. The bag is constructed using the new method of sequence pieces transformed into a three-dimensional structure. N&R Foldings is a London/Tokyo based Design studio founded by Rodrigo Solorzano and Naoki Kawamoto. With a particular interest in digital generation and digital fabrication N&R’ s work draws inspiration from Origami and its functional capabilities.
