Free Stuff: Brush Pilot Giveaway and Cyber Monday Coupon Code

Ok, we have a holiday on our hands soon and I’m feeling like some of of you might want some free software. It’s been a while since we’ve had a Brush Pilot giveaway here on BittBox, so I think Thanksgiving week would be a perfect time. I’m giving away 5 copies of Brush Pilot to some lucky commenters, and I also have a Cyber Monday coupon code for 50% off. The coupon code is “ILOVEBRUSHES,” and it’s good starting Thursday and ends at midnight on Cyber Monday. Make sure you read the rules, and good luck :)

Visit BrushPilotApp.com to download a demo and read more details.

Brush Pilot for Mac - A Photoshop Brush Previewer

Brush Pilot™ is a fast and easy application for previewing Adobe® Photoshop® and Adobe Photoshop Elements Brushes (.abr), built exclusively for Mac OS X. Brush Pilot is designed to save you time by allowing you to instantly preview your brushes without having to load them into Photoshop.
Instantly finds all Photoshop BrushesInstantly finds all of your brushes

Brush Pilot for Mac - A Photoshop Brush Previewer

When you launch Brush Pilot, it automatically finds every brush file on your system, so there’s no need to navigate a Finder-like menu system. Brush Pilot also knows what version/s of Photoshop you have, and it separates your installed brushes from the rest.
Fast PreviewsBlazing fast previews

Brush Pilot has a small footprint, uses very little system resources, and previews even the most ginormous brush files at breakneck speed. It’s designed not to get in your way, but to make you more productive, as well as creatively inspired.
Install brushes with a single clickInstall brushes with one click

Brush Pilot is designed for productivity on more than one level. You can send files to the Trash, reveal their location in Finder, and even install selected files into all versions of Photoshop on your system with a single click, menus, Control/Right + Click, or keyboard shortcuts.

Check out some of the new features:

  • Export as PNG! When exporting, Brush Pilot will generate a PNG (with or without transparency) at full size for each individual brush inside the file and organize the collection into a folder.
  • “Show Volumes” menu command will show complete file hierarchy, arranged by volume, including mounted iDisks.
  • Double clicking on folders in file path display will open them in Finder.
  • iTunes style scrollbars.
  • File Count indicators reveal how many brush files are in each folder. (like Mail)

Contest Rules:

  • All you have to do to enter is leave a comment. (tweeting is appreciated)
  • Only comment once.
  • 5 winners will be randomly chosen from the comments.
  • Please only comment if you have a Mac.

A Collection of Beautiful, Free Fonts

It’s fairly common knowledge that the choice of font you use can have a huge impact on the tone of the site you’re designing. A clean & professional serif might be at home on a site that takes itself seriously, while a quirky sans serif might be a better fit for a site with a playful personality.

As Information Architect Oliver Richenstein famously wrote in 2006, web design is 95% typography – so getting the right typeface for your design is important. We’ve selected some beautiful free fonts that are just waiting to be added to your next design.

Found Freebies: Don’t miss out on freely available professional fonts

We’re all busy and time is of the essence, but taking 5 minutes per month to visit a couple font foundries can reap some awesome treasures. I’ve tracked down a few of these sites for you guys to get some free fonts. I’m not talking about “Free fonts” either. These are really good fonts, freely available as, what I would call “bait,” to get users to visit. And for me, it’s working.

Found Freebies: Don't miss out on freely available professional fonts

1. Veer.com

Veer.com (one of my favorite sites because it’s beautifully designed and simple) is a, what I would call, a “High End” stock site. Veer doesn’t mess around. Their font selection is somewhat small, but very high quality, and they give away a free font every single month. All you have to do is visit each month and download the latest free font, which is usually a single font from a popular font family in their collection. Visit the Free Section and you’ll find one font to download for free. (I couldn’t link directly to a “free font” page because it doesn’t exist. You’ll have to find it in their free section.)

2. FontFont.com

Found Freebies: Don't miss out on freely available professional fonts

FontFont.com is a popular type foundry that has a “Goodies” section. I’m not as frequent of a visitor to FontFont, so I’m not sure how often they update their free section, but there is some good stuff there now, including one really cool web font. (pictured above)

Myfonts.com

MyFonts.com doesn’t exactly have a free section, but many designers (more than you think) will give one version of their font away for free as ‘bait’ to get you to purchase the entire font family, or the ‘pro’ version. It’s more time consuming to browse, but you can find some good stuff there. Click on the link above or go to Myfonts.com and click on the “Free” tag in order to filter.

Conclusion:

Just a reminder, but make sure you pay attention to the license restrictions when downloading, and especially when using anything “Free.” Unlike BittBox, the majority of free stuff, in my experience, is either accompanied by a limited license, or used as bait. Never hurts to watch your own back. Hope you guys found this informative! Time for some free fonts to add to your collection :)
