November: suggestions from the Editor
As we mentioned in this article, each month Your Inspiration Web offers you a new list of “Editor’s favorites”, designed to promote fonts, articles, or resources found on the web.
November was a great month: in our favorites you’ll find a lot of material to consult. So, let’s get started right away!
Or those which, this month, struck our hearts.
It is elegant in every detail and has excellent graphics: it would be impossible to not fall in love with this site. The logo is beautiful, the soft colors play together perfectly and the typeset is polished in every detail. And even though it is typically discouraged to use both a serif and a sans-serif font in the same project, the details highlighted in georgia contribute to the over-all perfect aesthetic result. Hats off, I’d say.
Disorganized, eccentric, fake-chaotic. And colorful. A true stoke of originality with a very particular font, and audacious and well-studied graphics.
Even though we’ve already put it in the list of particular fonts, we’re going to catch the ball on the fly and suggest it to you once again. We’re talking about the font Ayosmonika, bubbly and creative to the right degree. Just seeing its re-adaptation in the logo for camilarios.com is enough to understand its true aesthetic potential. Wow.
Similar to rockwell but more delicate: nilland is decidedly an underestimated font. It is suggested for esthetically elegant and refined projects.
More free WordPress themes. Some are truly high class.
Resources: brushes, icons & co.
Vintage is dead? I don’t think so! If quality resources in this style are still being developed, it’s for a reason. Floral and woodcut textures: f.a.b.u.l.o.u.s.
Free resources are always welcome, especially if they’re vector and of good quality. Here there are thousands!
There are dozens of websites that offer photoshop brushes. This is an updated archive where we found original and relatively unknown brushes.

Brand identity & logo design
The title says it all: a simple and always current problem about which YIW has also made itself heard. But a review can’t hurt.
It’s a question we should always ask ourselves. When can a logo be deemed inappropriate? What details should be considered?
Touchè. YIW’s editorial staff loves monkeys. And they can’t avoid admiring the original usage in each of the 25 logos found here.
These business cards are a triumph of originality and aesthetics. Be Inspired.
