Deal of the week: Distressed Veneer font.
thumbnailWe're all looking for ways to insert some cool into our designs, and you'd have to go some way to be cooler than this week's deal from our sister-site MightyDeals.com; a great vintage typeface from Yellow design studio. The Veneer font is a lovingly rendered, all-caps, typeface with multiple distress options. It's ideal for inserting a bit of organic texture into your designs, whether they be flat or not. Based on early 20th century advertising sans-serifs like Monotype Grotesque, the lowercase has been dropped, the corners rounded and distress reminiscent of the imperfections in wood block prints have been added. Veneer is a bold, but friendly, typeface with regular spacing and minimal detail so that nothing is lost in the distress. Speaking of the distress, the typeface is actually several fonts with three levels of distress: there's Veneer One, regular and italic; Veneer Two, regular and italic; and Veneer Three, regular and italic. What's more, for alphabetic characters each font has an additional distress level in the lowercase slot giving you a total of 6 levels of distress. VeneerGraphic3 Also included is Veneer Extras, a set of 38 icons designed to compliment the typeface. There's a moustache, a couple of revolvers, some weather effects, a nice bird — a great alternative to the standard Twitter icon — even a charming (if slightly incongruous) alternative ampersand. VeneerGraphic2 Great for adding a vintage touch to T-shirt designs and even posters, the high levels of detail in the distress means the fonts look good even at high resolutions. Desktop versions come with opentype language support, webfont versions have been subset for optimal file size. VeneerGraphic1 Normally this set of fonts sells for $39, but for a limited time, you can get them for just $9. But why not think about increasing your savings? You can get the desktop and webfont versions together for just $16! Head over to MightyDeals.com to grab this bargain. VeneerGraphic4 VeneerGraphic5 Have you used Veneer in a project?
