Ever thought about how fonts change the look and feel of your written page. Most of us, as I do here, stick with the font that is automatically built in to whatever program you’re using. I have to say I avoid Time New Roman like the plague. I hate it. Generally I go for something with a simpler, clean cut line, like on this page, or Century Gothic. But I do enjoy mucking about with fonts within images and so having a bank of more off the wall fonts is a must.
I was on Language Fonts the other day and decided to download some more exotic creations to add to a piece I was working on from Fonts.com. I particularly liked for their graphic quality, the Korean fonts which have, again, very clean lines, almost like mathematical equations.
The trouble is, I could spend a lot of time just selecting all my favourites.
Here are some of those – from a variety of websites:
HY Gothic Korean Medium
Arial® Cyrillic MT
Pokemon - yes I like this 🙂 www.DaFont.com
el&font gothic - has to be used big
Final Lap - as does this www.DaFont.com
I found this short through this blog – ilovetypography.com. An excellent site with all the detail behind how fonts are made.
And this beautiful opening shot leads to www.fontcraft.com and yet more to buy.
