‘Legacy of Defeat‘ is not just a puzzling name but also the custom type foundry of famed vector illustrator Joshua M. Smith AKA Hydro 74 (who appears to have recently changed his home website as well). To roll out his new venture he is offering several fonts for free and they are some excellent display specimens well worth grabbing while he is feeling generous. Thanks Josh, we love us some fonts.
Ventilate has released their 5th free downloadable poster series entitled ‘Dystopia’. There are some nice entries this go round including the spacesuit astronaut pilot artwork of Derek Stenning.

Network Osaka has released a nicely designed free font called Alpha. You can download it here. Expect a full site launch soon. Still some great work to browse through in the Flickr-folio though.
