For the type fans out there

Darden Studio : Birra Stout

Just got passed on a great site of some type people that I haven’t come across before (though that’s not saying a lot.) Darden Studio has a lot of great work and blog to look at, they’re also passing on the wealth w/ one free typeface called Birra Stout. Download Birra Stout at and their site at

I also thought that parts of their colophon were worth repeating here: The soundtrack has always played a role in our design process. During development, we listened to a lot of NPR, and the energetic offerings of Ella Fitzgerald, the Magnetic Fields, ‘N Sync, Def Leppard, Jellyfish, Paul Anka, Ryan Paris, Future Bible Heroes, Regina Spektor, Neil Finn, Christina Aguilera, Johnny Cash, Suroît, Ragan Fox, Elvis Presley, Elliot Smith, ABBA, Eartha Kitt, Fannypack, the Black Eyed Peas, Tom Thumb and the Latter Day Saints, and The Misfits significantly aided the shaping of this website.

Our tools: Our toolbox contains Apple computers, Hewlett-Packard printers, Fontographer, FontLab, Python, Yojimbo, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe InDesign, Adobe Illustrator, TextWrangler, MetricsMachine, Superpolator, and SubEthaEdit; our desk drawers are always stocked with Staedtler Mars erasers, Pilot v5 pens, Sanford 2B drafting pencils, and lots of Post-Its.
