Free font: Gilroy

Gilroy fonts
I love a nice, clean, well-rounded sans-serif font! Gilroy is kind of a cross between Gill Sans and Avenir; two fantastically readable fonts that work large or small.

Gilroy is a full family of 20 fonts which you can get for $45. But you can grab the Light and Extra Bold versions for free. Download the Gilroy freebies here.

New Google logo & icons in vector format

Google logo & icons

EpicPxls has provided the new Google logo, and icons for Google, Google+, Maps, News, Business and Translate in vector format. They look great. At first glance, anyway.

The bad news is that EpicPxls chose the most convoluted and sloppy way to provide the icons to you. The file you will download is a single tiny PSD file. Each icon is saved in a Layer Group in the layers panel that contains various Shape layers for each color in the icon. So technically they are vector art. They’re just not the easiest to work with.

If you choose to select the appropriate shapes and paste them into Adobe Illustrator to save them as individual proper logo files (as I have), you’ll also notice that you may need to do some cleanup work on the paths.

Still, this is much easier than trying to find the official vector files on Google’s own Developer site.
