Designer/typographer Andy Chung on his latest typeface:

“I took Neighbourhood as a challenge to create something that had the graphic expression of a display face while still maintaining some of the functionality of a text face. In the end I created something that I feel has the best of both worlds; an ultra simple sans serif text face with a large set of alternates which when combined with the regular characters create a new graphic display look. Neighbourhood is being released under the Creative Commons by-nc-sa Licence which allows others to remix and tweak all working files. As of right now Neighbourhood is limited to only a Regular weight, however the project is up for expansion through creative collaboration to whoever is interested in taking part. This collaborative process has already began as the spacing of the font was graciously taken care of by Igino Marini who runs Ikern.”

I saw his earlier in the week but rediscovered it (and remembered I should mention it) after a visit to my alma matter DIK.

Adult Swim, who gained fame with their efforts to promote and support the likes of Dangermouse and MF Doom have released a new album of electronica that is available for free. I actually downloaded all of it myself and gave it a listen this morning before I thought I would write a post about it. The album is titled, ‘Ghostly Swim’. You can download it free here. It is surprisingly good. There are some really great tracks on the album and it is a really quality album to be giving away. The very first track is good and it kicks the album off strong and the album closes out well too with some good smooth tracks near the end. The album is a collaborative effort of several artists including Tycho (the musical stylings of design hero ISO50). Overall, you can’t beat something this good for free. Download it and enjoy. The album also comes with an image of the album art depicted above.
