Holiday Bonus: Present Labels
As a special holiday gift to our customers we’ve put together a special selection of Christmas present labels using traditional art from our collection. There are 13 labels in PDF format, perfect for printing out and using to label your presents.
To download the labels click on the image of a sample label above and to the right and then print them out from the PDF file. Ideally you should print the labels out on adhesive backed sheets of label paper (available at OfficeMax, Office Depot, Staples and similar stores). Then cut out the individual labels and stick them on your presents. If you can’t get adhesive backed label paper you can always use a glue stick or tape, which works just about as well.
Merry Christmas, Joyous Yule, Happy Holidays, etc.

New Font: BigBlok
A great many years ago when working in game publishing I had a real fascination with doing titles in a strong, super-bold font called Bolt Bold. The truth is I rather overused it.

I don't know what came over me one Halloween, but I couldn't get the idea of dancing skeletons out of my head. The classic dance of death, but a bit more expressive, with the skeletons working together to form the letters of a font. This resulted in the design for the Bonyeard font, where each letter is made [...]
The 1960s was a time when creativity flourished, in music, in literature and in the visual arts. This creativity found its outlet mostly in the counter culture, and one big aspect of that was in poster design for concerts at the great nightclubs of that era like the Fillmore. Rock posters of the 60s have a particula[more]
