December 2005 Archives
This was big year for those involved in graphics and publishing, marked by the appearance of Microsoft's Expression products, the release of Adobe Creative Suite 2, the Adobe/Macromedia merger, Apple's Aperture and the rise of Web 2.0. All significant and well-covered by the media. However, one of the most-overlooked trends of the year has been the growing (and long-overdue) support for the OpenType font format.
In response to my earlier posts regarding design-worthy free fonts, a reader pointed me to the Phil's Fonts site, where District Thin, the thinnest weight from GarageFonts' District family, created by Kienan and Dylan Smith, is currently available for free download in PostScript, TrueType and OpenType formats.
