has an awesome freebie font this week

I’ve discovered one way to build up your font stash is to sign up for DesignCuts and Creative Markets mailing list. They give away some pretty cool stuff for graphic resources on a weekly basis. It’s a nice way to promote the artists and it’s only offered for a short time. I really like this new one called Violetta. Comes with 4 different typefaces. Design Cuts gives you the chance to enter to win a prize by submitting a design using their freebie of the week. I think this is not only a great way to build your community but also a genius marketing tool. Those who decide to enter, not only get a little practice in but also create something that they can share on other platforms…further spreading the word about Design Cuts. Since I don’t have a lot of time to keep up on the suggested “posting” schedule, this can kill a few birds with one stone, so to speak. What are your favorite design and typography resources? Do you ever enter contests for the practice alone? I’d love to know your thoughts.
