Fun with Fonts

Have you guys ever visited Font Squirrel? It’s a ‘free font utopia’ and as an admitted font hoarder, it’s a deep rabbit hole for me. I can spend hours in there…and then hours again in Photoshop playing around with layouts, kerning, drop shadows and textures. Font Squirrel is a great resource for designers, all of the fonts are “100% Free for Commercial Use”* which is a giant generous blessing. You can even generate Web Fonts for use in web design.

I want to give these guys a big hug, a chest bump and a cupcake.

Here are a few of my favorites from this week.

*Font Squirrel mines the web for font with licenses that allow commercial use and shares them on their site in an easy format to navigate. You should still read the license on each font before you use it to make sure there aren’t any restrictions. For more info, check out their FAQ page. And if you have the means, you should also donate to the designer where possible – it’s not easy to design a beautiful font!
