All though there have been many other most used font posts, most of them outline fonts used by the ‘not-so-well-trained’ designer. In this post I want to outline the fonts that are often used by the more ‘professional’ of designers.

50 Inspiring Vintage Advertisements

Web Tips » Inspiration » September 30, 2008
Source wellmedicated »

Like many others I find myself captivated with vintage advertising. There have been numerous articles, blog posts and websites dedicated to the subject and I just can’t seem to get enough. Specifically, it is the advertising of the 50’s and 60’s that is most aesthetically pleasing to me. It seems every ad in that era was either a beautifully shot photograph or a stunning Rockwellian painting. Not to mention the incredible attention given to layout and typography. The following are 50 of my personal favorites. I hope you enjoy them.

Free October 08 Wallpaper Set

Source fudgegraphics »

Better late than never I present to you the new calendar wallpaper pack for October 08. The style is a bit different from the other ones, but I hope you enjoy it nonetheless. When designing the wallpaper I experimented with a techinque I learn a couple weeks back in a tutorial on Abduzeedo. As always there are two versions available: one with the calendar, one without it. The set includes 3 different resolution: 1920?1200 (suitable for 1440?900); 1600?1200; 1280?1024. The wallpaper actually got featured on Smashing Magazine as well. Check their site for more calendar wallpaper. Anyways, this is what it looks like. Download after the jump.

31 Russian websites that can inspire you

Web Tips » Inspiration » September 30, 2008
Source designfloat »

Today I would like to present you a collection of 31 Russian websites that can inspire you. For a long time during 1990s the countries of the former USSR were excluded from WWW world and it’s only lately that a separate community has been formed named Runet. All the designs have their special touch. The distinctive feature of every Russian design is its uniqueness. There are no standards, no precise definition of the styles and what’s most interesting- there are not many websites yet, so for every project there’s place for creativity.
