Neal Fletcher.

 

Now you’ve probably all heard of him by now, but I still think you should take a look at Neal Fletcher’s work & website. The recent graduate from UCLan (Preston, UK)  has had appearances in Creative Review, Form Fifty Five  & Whitezine amongst others. His recent typeface ‘Bowen’ is a massive hit in the creative world is every type nerds dream. You can download the typeface amongst most of his others at http://www.nealfletcher.co.uk/

John Peel Record Archive.

The Arts Council & BBC have teamed up to bring us The Space (a new free digital arts service ).

Listening to Peel Sessions, viewing photographs and watching videos are also all part of the site. Wonderfully designed and a timeless piece.

Bodoni.

One of my favourite fonts is Bodoni which means I have exceptional love for this decorative twist on the typeface.
