The Story by Mobstr
This put a smile on my face. Continuing on from Mobstr’s "Playing With The Buff Man" series, The Story tells the tale of the on going dance between the artist and the so called “Buff Man” as they both fight for control over the wall.

Courtesy Script by Sudtipos.
Courtesy captures the elegance and propriety of finely practiced Spencerian penmanship, in particular the Zanerian school. Its lowercase is notably understated, a simple monoline with very wide connections that ease readability. In the capitals, Courtesy adds variety in both the weight of the strokes, and in degrees of flourish — from merely fancy to over-the-top engrossery.

Ordinary Behavior by Kevin LCK
Artist and illustrator Kevin LCK works almost exclusively in black and white, so it comes as no surprise that as he’s ventured into sculptural objects the aesthetic has remained the same, while the dimensions clearly haven’t. In his new series Ordinary Behavior the artist builds dioramas into everyday electronic objects made from cardboard such as a computer, camera, and iPhone.

Showcase by Latinotype.
Latinotype did it again, the guys behind many lovely and relevant fonts of the past year, bring you:
Showcase, the new typeface of Daniel Hernandez and Paula Nazal is a handmade font consisting of a set of types that are composed of four styles, one script, one sans, a slab, sans mini and finally a set of ornaments and dingbats, all made to work together in the same language. It’s inspired by a pen that writes different typefaces and ornaments, and casually reaches into a harmonious family.
Showcase is very easy to use and allows great versatility, can be used both in a magazine as a restaurant, through windows, cafes, and really anyway you can think of!

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.
