Testing @penpot@fosstodon as a free and open source app for #webdesign and #webprototyping, finally. Quite based on #svg. Good to see that it seems ok to avoid #figma and other #xd proprietary apps.

Out now! Lithops by Daytona Mess, aka Anne-Dauphine Borione is a unique very display very organic semi modular typeface.

Its name stems from succulent plants to which it bears a resemblance, and was (loosely) inspired by Art Nouveau, Alzheimer brains and Matisse cut-outs.

Dowload it on velvetyne.fr/fonts/lithops/

forgot to mention: lots of presentations and workshops taking place as well!
