43 / Open Source Tuesday 🔥
By Noemi Stauffer • Issue #43 • View online
Hi again!
Here’s the first issue entirely dedicated to open source releases, major updates, and other high-quality free fonts. Big month in the open source type world, with French foundry Velvetyne launching a new website, releasing three new typefaces and updating five other ones. But as you’ll see, there’s a lot more.
Also, the newsletter of Product Disrupt has been impressing me lately. Some of my recent favourite finds include Vice’s collection of stock photos with trans and non-binary people, that are free for non commercial use, and a huge repository of ethical alternatives to the products of tech giants. Worth reading if you ask me 👌
Hope you enjoy today’s issue! ✌️ – Noemi

Open Source Releases

Velvetyne also refreshed their website, and many of their typefaces, including three of my favourites:
☞ Award-winning Le Murmure now supports Cyrillic, designed by Alex Slobzheninov (who also contributed to the stunning branding of &Walsh, the new creative agency of Jessica Walsh).
Millimetre now comes in Light and ExtraBlack. Its two original weights, Regular and Bold, remain practically unchanged.
☞ A display version was added to Bluu Next. Also, note that the redrawn and expanded retail version of this typeface, called Bluu Suuperstar, is currently 50% off at BlackFoundry (see offer below).
