Árida Font Family by Latinotype

Árida, a desert-inspired font family designed by Alfonso García for foundry Latinotype.

Árida is a font family inspired by the Argentinian city of San Juan, which is located in the semi-desert of Cuyo. With its sharp edges, it pays home to the vegetation of this region. The typeface seems aggressive at large sizes but looks warm and friendly at smaller sizes⁠.

The Árida font family comes in 5 weights ranging from Regular (with a matching Italic version) to Black. Its regular weight contains 773 glyphs while its Italic counterpart is composed of 939 glyphs. Furthermore, the family also includes numerous typographic features such as small caps, different styles of figures, ligatures, stylistic and contextual alternates, among other OpenType features.

A Massive Wave Crashes in a Seoul Aquarium as Part of the World’s Largest Anamorphic Illusion

An enormous aquarium with perpetually crashing waves has popped up amidst an urban landscape in South Korea, but don’t expect to hear the water sloshing around if you walk by. Designed by District, the elevated tank is actually a massive anamorphic illusion. The digital media company created the public project utilizing the world’s largest advertising screen that spans 80.1 x 20.1 meters. As shown in the video, the deceptive aquarium looms over the outdoor area and splashes repeatedly into the sides.

For more of District’s illusory works, check out Vimeo and Instagram. (via Design You Trust)

The Study of Ancient Towns in China by Yukai Du

An illustration series created by Yukai Du as a Study of Ancient Towns in China.

Yukai Du is an illustrator and motion designer originally from China who currently lives and works in the UK. As a personal project, she has created an illustration series as a study of ancient towns in China.

“Originally from China, I was sent to learn Chinese painting when I was 4. The fineness of Chinese painting was something I could not appreciate at that age. After I moved to London and established my career as an illustrator and animator, I went to Beijing to visit where my grandfather grew up. It brought back my memory of the buildings and landscapes I used to see in Chinese paintings. Therefore, the personal project is for me to find a way to depict some Chinese historic locations with a combination of Chinese painting elements and my ‘modernized’ illustration style.” — Yukai Du

Below you can see her beautiful artworks. For those of you who want to see more of her work, please visit Yukai Du’s website or follow her on Behance and Instagram.

Hundreds of Intricately Cut Layers Compose Impeccably Detailed Wildlife Sculptures by Patrick Cabral

All images © Patrick Cabral

Manila-based artist Patrick Cabral (previously) layers paper incised with decorative motifs and lacy patterns into dazzling sculptural portraits of wildlife. Ribbed tentacles with alternating gold and white dangle from an octopus, while elegant pieces comprise a rhinoceros’s exterior. Each multi-layered work contains hundreds of individual paper pieces that are entirely hand-cut.

The crowned lion (shown below) spans more than five feet and is one of Cabral’s largest projects to date. “Working on a piece like this is a paradox. It’s a lot of work that usually spans around 3 months. I love the whole process of cutting because it’s sort of meditative for me,” he writes on Instagram. “It’s opposite though once I started assembling the pieces together because it becomes really stressful (especially) on pieces as big as this.”

For more of the artist’s intricate compositions, head to Behance and Instagram.
