In March 2021’s edition, Spring takes over with fun new takes on classic concepts; circle animations are back, there’s plenty of pink and purple color palettes, and designers turn to faux split-screens.

Google Fonts Introduces Icons

Google Fonts has received a significant update to allow it to offer icons as well as fonts. The initial icons are Material Design Icons in five styles: outlined, filled, rounded, sharp, and two-tone. The icons are free and open-source, allowing you to utilize them in personal and commercial projects and edit any shapes you need.

In this in-depth post, Kyle Turman takes a deep dive into the central pillars of designing digital products, from user-centered problem solving to collaboration and communication.

Proxima Vara

The eternally popular Proxima Nova typeface has had a major revision with the release of Proxima Vara, a variable font version. Proxima Vara uses three values, width, slant, and weight, to enable 5,000,000 variations, allowing you to fine-tune your typography without adding unnecessary overheads to your bandwidth budget.

With increasing numbers of creative professionals turning to freelance work, you may be considering joining them.
