Fonts?
#1
Fonts can make a surprisingly big difference on the overall appearance and feel of any logo, signature, ad, or anything else of that nature. I personally will easily spend a lot of time trying out different fonts and looking with different contexts to see which ones I prefer to use in my designs.

Right now, Verdana and Lucida Handwriting are my favorites. As for the others that are available, I usually just "feel them out" and try whatever looks nice.

What are the fonts that you find yourself using frequently in graphics design?

My favorite font for web design is Open Sans, which I usually just import from google fonts.

For website I typically use Helevitica Neue, Verdana or SegoeUI. SegoeUI is my big one, right now.

Nonetheless, I like it. But on the other hand it seems a bit generic Tongue

It is the best place to get fonts for your website, becuase implementing them into a theme is very easy. Smile

Georgia, verdana, and arial are the main ones I've been using now. I really like Georgia particularly for the stylistic feel of it, but it's better used for text that would generally be in italics as it's a fancier font.

Finding good web safe fonts is difficult. The selection of available fonts that most people have installed is pretty limited. Tongue
