Typography | Free Sans Serif downloads

Here are some good free sans-serif fonts that have popped up over the past couple of months.

Gandhi Sans is a great looking humanist sans-serif similar to Gill Sans. It comes in the four standard weights of regular, italic, bold and bold italic, making it very useful for standard Word processing. There is also a matching Gandhi Serif, the combination of the two is similar to Gill Sans and Perpetua.

Karla is a great looking open humanist sans-serif in the Swiss style, but with a bit of personality in the double storey g and wonky q. Karla is available in regular, italic, bold and bold italic.

Oswald is a condensed bold humanist sans-serif, good for headlines and similar to Franklin Gothic Condensed.

Layout | Vintage Movie Posters worth a bit of money

The Guardian has a collection of the 10 most expensive movie posters. Expensive not in production, but in the value of the physical poster to a collector. Most of these are great examples of vintage horror movie illustrations, but also include the beautiful Metropolis design. I love the custom type on these posters, and there are some great compositions and perspectives.

Typography | Exo free font family

In a rare occurrence for free type families, you can download the whole 18 fonts that make up the extensive Exo. The font comes in thin, extra light, light, regular, medium, demi-bold, bold and extra bold, all with matching true italics. All weights have small caps, alternates, ligatures and different number formats in the open type system. The combinations of the different weights lend this to being able to be used in a large range of products. The font itself is a geometric sans-serif similar to Klavika (the Facebook font).

Layout | Minimalist Star Wars Posters

I love these minimalist Star Wars posters by Travis English. Check out his tumblr site for more posters such as Dr Who and Harry Potter. Just like the movies, the posters for the original trilogy are probably the best. The posters use simple silhouette illustrations of key locations and protagonists for each film. View other nice Star Wars posters here, here and here.
