Layout | Newcastle Festival of Dance Posters

I really like this poster series for the Newcastle Festival of Dance by Amy Rodchester. Polygon blocks were created at varying heights and arranged in a chessboard type pattern and topped by images of dancing feet. The arrangement then was photographed giving a slightly uneven pattern. The black and white photos of old fashioned shoes and the pastel tones give a nice vintage touch to what would otherwise be a very modern poster.

Font Squirrel | Free Font Amble by Punchcut

Amble is a nice looking and highly legible font family available to download free. The font is available in light condensed, light, regular, bold weights all with matching italics. Amble is like a slightly more open version of Verdana. My only issue with the font is the slightly strange upper case K.
