The Art // This geometric illustration by Ukranian designer jD style is right up my alley. It’s like an updated interpretation on the current triangle trend with muted colors and overlapping textures.

Brandon Grotesque Font [Friday Favorites]

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.
