This week’s finds are heavy on the awesome/free! We have: a pay-what-you-want type foundry; a resource for free design elements with a unique business model; a site with free, simple desktops; a huge collection of design-related apps & resources on mega-discount; and a company that offers neat-looking, recycled goods like binders, presentation folders and the like.
This “type co-op” (aka foundry) commissions typefaces from a variety of designers. You pay what you want – the Radiohead model, if you will – and that money goes to the type designer. Some cool display faces in here.
Freebie Pixels offers resources for designers to download and use; however, those designers who submit resources that get accepted earn “Pixel Points”, which can be used to buy other resources from their Pixel Store. Interesting concept.
If you’re a fan of minimalism, you’ll like the wallpapers that Simple Desktops have to offer. But be sure to come back here on the first of every month for our monthly desktop calendar wallpapers!
While I might be feeling a little overwhelmed with the explosion of “deals” around these ‘ere Innernet parts, BundleHunt 4 offers some great stuff- 13 Mac Apps & resources for designers, to be specific, at a combined 93% discount.
Rebinder is a company that offers truly sustainable office products. I dig the look of what they’ve got going, and you get to feel good about doing your part too! Their goods could have potential for branding collateral for a lower-budget, eco-focused client too.
See you next week!
