9 Alternatives to the Lobster Two font

When the font Lobster Two was first released, I went crazy for it.  I loved everything about it – it’s retro, it’s clean & easy to read, and it has a lot of flair.  If you browse around this site, you’ll notice my love for this font too.  Unfortunately, it was released as a free font, and just about half the world decided that they loved it too.  Now, Lobster Two is everywhere.  It’s nearly impossible to go a day without seeing this font – dare I say, it’s becoming the new Comic Sans (not even linking to that one, because really, nothing is worse than Comic Sans, and I’m not going to proliferate it).  I think it’s time for me to get away from it – and I’d like you to consider moving on from Lobster Two as well.

Anyway.  Yes.  Lobster Two is a graphically beautiful font.  But it’s overused and it needs a chance to rest.  So today, I present to you 9 font options that are similar to Lobster Two.  Use these for a comparable feel, without being lumped in with the masses still using Lobster Two.  Most of these are free, some are free for commercial use as well.  Which is your favourite?  Are there any other fonts that you think are too overused in design today?  Leave some comments below!

Doctor Who Valentine’s Cards

Okay, so I’m still completely obsessed with Doctor Who – the more I watch, the more I want to be the Doctor’s next companion.  But seeing as how that can’t happen, I’ll just design stuff to feed my obsession.  My latest output?  Doctor Who Valentine’s Day Cards, available now on Etsy!

I designed them as a one-page printout, with all four cards on one page.  They feature my two favourite aliens – The Dalek’s and the Adipose (both looking unbelievably cute – I think it’s the eyes!), as well as the TARDIS and the 11th Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver.

For a quick Doctor Who freebie Valentine’s Day card, surf on over to the Superflash Creative facebook page, like the page, and click on the Free Downloads button :)

I dunno about you, but I’d be pretty stoked to receive one of these!  Anyone out there have suggestions for more themed Valentine’s Day cards? I still have a couple of weeks to get some done.  Leave notes in the comments!

All I Want For Christmas Is Who!

All I Want For Christmas Is Who by Superflash Creative Hello again and Happy Christmas Eve to everyone celebrating!  It’s been a very busy month since I last updated the blog, but I have so many ideas rolling around in my head!

Any other fans of Doctor Who out there?  I only recently jumped into it, but I have quickly become obsessed!  And now… All I Want For Christmas Is Who! (Seriously… I think I’ve asked everyone in my family for a sonic screwdriver for Christmas – most of them made fun of me).

Here’s a little print/card I came up with for all my fellow Whovians.  (I think my favourite part is the Gallifreyan lights that are strung across the top of the TARDIS!) Feel free to spread it around and share the love.  And if anyone is interested in a full resolution print, let me know in the comments and I’ll upload it to etsy or imagekind.

Hope everyone is safe and warm and enjoying time with their families!
