Fonts?

I am terrible with fonts, I will download 50+ fonts for one project, try them all out on the design, then just to annoy myself decide that the one I had previously installed for another project was best suited for this one. I torture myself when it comes to fonts, I always want to be precise, but not over complicate it, and still make it readable ect... It kills me a little inside.

I know the feeling. What frustrates me the most is you get everything perfect, release the project and then bam... you discover a font that would have been better suited.  Dodgy

And then release an update to annoy your customers. Big Grin

Cantarell, Ubuntu, Calibri, Lucida Grande, and Open Sans are all great fonts

In general, I use ChinaCat a lot. I have a ton of fonts on my computer at my disposal, though, so it really depends on things like what I'm making the graphic for. For example, when I make book covers for my stories, the font is always chosen based on the project as well as the imagery. I use some form of bubble letters if the words are going to be part of the sky, for example. But in general, my favorite font to use on things in the most basic form is ChinaCat... and occasionally I Hate Comic Sans (yes, that's a real font)

They need to stop requiring times new roman for literally everything. Yea it's a tried and tested font, but it just looks a little bit... serious sometimes. Tongue

Our official memos are all in Times New Roman. I'm so over that font. Tongue So I make sure to use something else any chance I get.

I'll have to look into using Garamond. Never used it. I highly doubt I could get away with "ecofont" at work even if it did save them money.

You know, speaking of money, we're still using Inkjet printers at work for some odd reason. Not sure why. We have some laser jet ones too, but inkjets are expensive.

How much do you guys print @Guardian?

Way too much.

It seems every meeting we have to have printouts of the slides everyone can see and we send out via email just prior. It makes no sense.

I've been questioned at some I host why there's no printouts. I just have to be blunt "that's wasteful, I'm not doing that." Every one fo these people bring notebooks to said meetings too. It's excessive.

We do the same thing. We print out the same thing about 30 times and we end up going through several packs of paper a day. These printer cartridges go fast. Finna

Depends of use... for writing/reading purpose Open Sans and Roboto are my boys (?)
For graphical design reaaaaally depends of what kind of work is and the idea to portrait. Some font I use on base:

I like the moon-get one @Plushy.

I've been adding a few new fonts into MS. The primary one I'm using right now is "Merriweather" (reload without cache, and look for the bright blue table headings, such as the "quick reply" heading, or in the toolbar).

Going to be messing with a few more in the coming days. Fonts make a bigger difference than I thought.

I'm loving Rubik at the moment. I've been using Lora for a recent project too which I found and quite liked.

I generally just head to Google Fonts and keep scrolling til they all blur into one.

Both very nice ones for certain purposes.
