My friends at Cypher 13 got in touch to inform me that they have recently released a new font called C13 LCD through YWFT.

The new typface, Arco has been released by the clever people behind You Work For Them. The font was designed by Nicolas Massi and is available for $30 smackers.

I just really love the color choices in the smaple layout above.

Not sure how I missed this but You Work For Them is selling a really nice glow-in-the-dark Steven Harrington Earth Day print for half off the original price. You can’t go wrong for 20 bucks on this one.

“In Thai, buamai translates to ‘are you bored?’ We created this site to become a massive image library (in due time) that would eventually kill time when we (or anyone) are bored. For now, the people posting images on Buamai is a closed collective, but we might open the flood gates in the future. So, if you are ever bored, click away! Buamai was created by Michael Paul Young.”

That’s Michael Paul Young from You Work For Them. It looks like a really cool site so far with a weird enough slant to make it interesting. I like the idea of keeping it tightly curated. Problem is that also requires a lot of selfless devotion. It will be interesting to see if they can keep it going. I hope they do because the WWFT/YWFT guys always have good ideas that are worth supporting.

We thank you for the new source of inspiration Michael.

Be warned, posters featuring boobs, banana gobbling women, swamp dogg and dragons ahead. That’s the right kind of warning if you ask me.

There are some really nice new t-shirts in the shop at You Work For Them. The shirt above is inspired by the cover of Brockmanns famous book Grid Systems In Graphic Design. It may in fact be the ultimate ‘design nerd’ t-shirt and I have to admit to wanting one pretty badly although I have kind of passed out of my t-shirt phase.

YWFT has arguably been the single most reliable one-stop-shop for graphic designers looking for typefaces, original stock imagery, patterns, vectors, inspirational books and just about anything else you could think of. Well ‘the best just got better‘ with an all new website featuring faster downloads, exclusive material and bigger images.

YWFT really has been around for a while and it really has become one of the best sources of just about everything, so if you have never visited, this is a better time than ever. Some of the new stock image libraries on the home page, an image from which you can see above, already make it worth a new visit.

YWFT is onces again sponsoring this year’s TypeCon 2008 in Buffalo, New York. TypeCon is the leading conference in America on all that is type. YWFT is also curating a poster exhibit at TypeCon. They are currently seeking the best poster work that has excellent type. Type can be the main focus of the poster or minor (that seems a little strange). They will be showing the best submissions and the poster show will also most likely be traveling like their last TypeCon poster exhibition. They are currently seeking as many submissions as possible.
