A new favorite font for y’all today! Brandon Grotesque is a sans serif type family of six weights plus matching italics. It was designed by Hannes von Döhren. Influenced by the geometric-style sans serif faces that were popular during the 1920s and 30s, the fonts are based on geometric forms that have been optically corrected for better legibility.
Brandon Grotesque has a functional look with a warm touch. While the thin and the black weights are great performers in display sizes the light, regular and medium weights are well suited to longer texts. The small x-height and the restrained forms lend it a distinctive elegance. You can grab Brandon Grotesque from MyFonts.

Hop & Jaunt is a couple of designers who started their creative agency while traveling and is now based out of New Orleans. John of Hop & Jaunt started an illustrated guide to New Orleans that I can’t get enough of! His illustration style is amazing and he captures the feeling of the city perfectly. Here are a few of my favorites and you can check out more on Hop & Jaunt’s Facebook page!
I am officially a New Orleans resident again! Our trip home was pretty insane since we were scheduled to arrive home right after hurricane Isaac passed. We ended up driving through some bad weather in Mississippi and when we got to New Orleans most of the city was covered in downed trees and had no power. We stopped in Maryland, West Virginia and Virginia on the way and took some videos and photos that I’ll be sharing soon! I’m back to blogging and taking on Freelance work since I’m one of the lucky ones with power restored! Zander and I have a September desktop wallpaper for y’all, hope you enjoy!
