My design studio, ERA404 Creative Group, was pleased to launch our 2011 Creative Reel this week. Information about the reel can be found in the supplementary ERA404 newsletter (Season X, Issue II), the Press Release (ERA404: Commemorating10 Years) as well as the [d]online blog post about the rebranding effort.
In light of my design studio’s new branding initiative, and based on some positive feedback about the lettering, I decided to expand the logo into a whole typeface. The font, which contains 256 glyphs and ligatures, is called era404 Regular and can be downloaded from MyFonts.com (along with my previous font, [d]online). Please only use it for personal use. Contact me (or post a comment) if you’re interested in commercial licensing of either typeface. And as always, I’d love your feedback.
