Netflix Sans
 

Netflix Sans

Netflix is getting in on the bespoke typeface trend with Netflix Sans, a custom made font by Dalton Maag to use in their new branding. Read more about what motivated Netflix to quit using Gotham and create their own font.

The End of the Minimalist Trend
 

The End of the Minimalist Trend

As many companies rebrand, they seem to be ditching the simple sans look in favor of sharper serifs and more stylized sophistication. Eyeondesign focuses on the new Chobani logo and how it may signal the end of the generic sans trend we’ve been seeing in recently.

Weird Type
 

Weird Type


Over the last couple of years, we’ve seen augmented reality apps blur the lines of digital imagery and the world around us. In a similar way, a new AR app called Weird Type lets you draw in three-dimensional space with words. Take a look and play around with layers upon layers of lettering.
