What The…?: Guy Creates Font Based On Volvo Wagon!


05 Apr

Designers are a funny breed of people. Hell, all creative people tend to be pretty quirky.

Alex George is perhaps more special than most, designing his latest font on the Volvo 240SW station wagon. Otherwise known as a ‘brick’, this ugly POS couldn’t be more uninspiring if it were on fire, as far as we’re concerned. But Alex loves them!

This charming font is based entirely on the side-profile silhouette of the wagon and according to the jpg graphic, he’d really, really like to buy one… if you have one for sale. No idea what country he’s from, but we’re sure you’d love to offload one if you had one.

Another day, another Photoshop tutorial. It took around 30 steps to make this cool little folder icon graphic from psd.tutsplus.com. The same mob who did the tutorial on the excellent dark button graphic.

Just when I think I’ve learned all I need to know about Photoshop to get by, I learn a bunch more. Keep it coming!
