Finding the best free #fonts isn’t easy (except when we post them here), but it’s always good for business to have some extra out-of-the-box typefaces within arm’s reach. That’s why we’re always searching the Web for its best-kept-secret fonts.

    This week’s featured free-font set takes a different approach than the standard weekly list. Instead of supplying a list of gorgeous fonts, Tutvid did something really interesting, pairing free fonts together that really complement each other.

    In the above photo, you’ll notice a quote by the legendary Star Wars character Yoda. The fonts in use are Alfa Slab One and Lora. This quote is one of my favorite lines in all of the Star Wars movies, tv shows, stories, etc. It’s very inspirational. 

    Check out the rest of the list at Tutvid. There’s 20 graphics like this, each featuring two fonts. Print them out, or use them as your computer’s wallpaper for your daily dose of inspiration. But don’t forget to download the fonts! Have fun!

Is this the most disgusting marketing strategy ever? Probably.


The Atlantic has a fascinating piece on a new marketing strategy that cosmetic companies and other businesses in the beauty industry are seizing; however, the world is probably better off without it.

    The new marketing strategy - a product of modern tech and social media - seems rather predatory but certainly effective. 

theatlantic:

Is This The Grossest Advertising Strategy of All Time?

Most of the time, targeted ads are pretty harmless. You searched for a flight to Denver? Here are some hotels in Denver. You looked for new running sneakers? Here are a few options.

But a new “study” from marketing firm PHD recommends a strategy that crosses the line from merely targeted to outright predatory, explicitly advising brands to seize on the times of the day and week when women feel the most insecure about their bodies and overall appearance in order to sell beauty products and other goods.

Women, the study claims to have found, feel less attractive on Mondays, especially in the morning. Thus, as the release explains, “Monday becomes the day to encourage the beauty product consumer to get going and feel beautiful again, so marketing messages should focus on feeling smart, instant beauty/fashion fixes, and getting things planned and done.  Concentrate media during prime vulnerability moments, aligning with content involving tips and tricks, instant beauty rescues, dressing for the success, getting organized for the week and empowering stories.” Yuck.

    It’s hard for me to disagree with such effective marketing, but at the same time, I don’t think it’s morally correct. What do you think?

By Fausto Mendez

    If you live in the USA, you may have heard a rumor or two that Apple’s releasing a new iPhone in October, and those rumors came true today. Introducing… the iPhone 5C .

   Featuring the good ol’s fashioned internals of the iPhone 5, the new iPhone 5C ships with a 4-inch Retina Display and plastic, solid-colored case. The Facetime camera on the front and the flash on the back is upgraded, so camera fiends have something to look forward to. Data fiends may appreciate that this iPhone ships with more LTE bands than any other phone on the market today.

    Otherwise, it’s exactly the same as the iPhone 5. Of course, it ships with the brand new and gorgeous iOS 7. Thanks to The Verge for the beautiful, live pics.

Don’t know who’s responsible for this beauty. I’d love to credit the creator, so if that’s you, let me know!
