We all love having a vast library of quality fonts to work with, but they can often be far too expensive for the average designer to afford. While the high price tags do justify the quality and craftsmanship that goes into premium typefaces, the total soon adds up when you’re trying to establish a varied collection. This brand new Design Cuts bundle brings you a range of unique fonts from a select group of hugely respected type designers and font foundries. The massive 99% discount brings the $3207 cost down to just $29 for a limited time, making it an ideal opportunity to upgrade your font library while saving a fortune!

Check out these combinations of famous statues from the likes of Michelangelo and Donatello with modern digital art trends such as neon lights, abstract shapes, and vibrant colours.

Whatever happened to the good old fashioned brand mascot? There aren’t many companies these days that have a cute cartoon representative! The only exception might be modern eSports logos, as showcased in one of my previous inspiration posts, but the visual style has evolved from the fun and friendly classic cartoon into strong and powerful, vector art. Fans of the retro design style will be happy to know that there still are some designers out there creating classic mascot characters to accompany their vintage brand identity designs. In today’s inspiration showcase I feature 40 nostalgic logo designs with retro mascot characters. Admire the different old-school art styles inspired by mid-century or the even earlier rubber-hose cartoon aesthetics.
