Apple’s UI changes from iOS 7 to iOS 8 are subtle, yet incredibly extensive. Spacing, positioning, and font sizes and weights were liberally tweaked and adjusted. Almost every icon was redrawn as well. Mercury has released their fully vectorized iOS 8 UI kit, absolutely free, and it’s definitely worth downloading.

FlatIcon plugin updated for Photoshop CC2014
I told you FlatIcon was the one Photoshop plugin you should absolutely be using back in March. It’s so convenient. When I updated to Adobe Creative Cloud 2014, the Photoshop plugin stopped working.
Thankfully, the folks over at FlatIcons have recently updated the FlatIcon plugin to work with the latest version of Photoshop.
All is right with the world again!

Snapwire offers quality free photos
I’ve written about free stock photo sites I’ve found in the past. Recently, I came across Snapwire and thought I would share it with you all. Snapwire offers seven free photos every seven days. The photos all feature a CC1.0 license, which means they’re free to use in any way you wish. The site appears to be fairly new, so there isn’t a large collection built-up just yet. Hopefully it continues on for a long time.

Adobe releases free multi-language font for Creative Cloud users
Adobe, in partnership with Google, is pleased to announce the release of Source Han Sans, a new open source Pan-CJK typeface family that is now available on Typekit for desktop use.
Source Han Sans, available in seven weights, is a typeface family which provides full support for Japanese, Korean, Traditional Chinese, and Simplified Chinese, all in one font. All told, each font weight in the family has a total of 65,535 glyphs (the maximum supported in the OpenType format), and the entire family rounds out at just under half a million total glyphs.
This is awesome for designers who must work with multi-language files. The font is available for all Creative Cloud users (including free subscription users).
