             Flavorful Colors

                  We, as Graphics Artists are also Great Story-Tellers. We can tell a compelling story even if there is no picture at all. Just by text and colors, we can make them believed that the product is Caramel-Flavored even if there’s no caramel picture on its label… how? With proper coloring that is right for each flavor. you can now convince them that it is that flavor!!
                Today, I am giving you some of the Flavorful color palette that I am using. and not only that; for a limited time only I am giving you the link of where you can download the PSD (Photoshop Document) of the Artwork I gave as an example. meaning-You can now use it however you want. but after two weeks the link will become broken.

Here is the Color Palette that I am talking about...

And here is the Artwork that I made using the Flavor Color Palette...

FONTS: To use? Or not to use?

Fonts, to Use? Or not to Use? It Depends
            It Depends on how you are using them, Later I will Teach You How to use them Properly . Because if You Don’t know which font you can Use freely, you might End up Violating Certain Law on Copyright.
First, Let’s Define Three types of Font Licenses…
The First is “Open Font License”
The Second is “Free, but for Personal use only License”
And the “Commercial Use License”

The Open Font License (OFL) - Free for all Purpose (Personal and Commercial) for the goals of the Open Font License are to stimulate worldwide Development of collaborative font projects, to support the font creation efforts of academic and linguistic communities, and to provide a free and open framework in which fonts may be shared and improced in partnership with others.

The OFL allows the licensed fonts to be used, studied, modified and redistributed freely as long as they are not sold by themselves

The Free, but for Personal Use only License - it allows you to use the fonts for personal use only, you can use it any way you want, except for Logo and Branding coz. You need to purchase their license fot them to allow you to use it Legally!

You MAY NOT sell this font or claim them as your own.
You MAY NOT edit or rename this font.
You MAY NOT redistribute this font.

The Commercial use license it allows you to use their fonts
for a fee Sometimes any amount of donations is good enough  some have their prices It includes a complete set of characters and punctuation marks  that you can use from logo to any kinds of branding Legally!

this is what I confirmed when I asked a company from sweden that sells Commercial typefaces for logo and branding purposes.

I hope it helps! for more important contents please visit my blog at
