Fonts? - Darth-Apple - November 6th, 2013

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?


RE: Fonts? - Burned Designs - November 10th, 2013

I frequently use Arial, Helvetica, Neou(thin), Lobster 2


RE: Fonts? - forthwall - November 11th, 2013

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


RE: Fonts? - simlink - November 12th, 2013

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

I recently discovered this one, and it looks pretty interesting. http://www.fontsquirrel.com/fonts/Capture-it?q%5Bterm%5D=capture+it&q%5Bsearch_check%5D=Y

That's suspiciously the same one used on your avatar Tongue


RE: Fonts? - Darth-Apple - January 28th, 2014

Yes, and the one used in the site's footer as well. Tongue


RE: Fonts? - simlink - January 30th, 2014

I used to use that one for Holt District. Tongue


RE: Fonts? - Acko - January 30th, 2014

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


RE: Fonts? - Clayton - January 30th, 2014

Google Fonts has so much to offer, so many modern ones its hard to choose from. Tongue


RE: Fonts? - Darth-Apple - January 30th, 2014

I'll have to check some of them out. I'm in need of some creative fonts. Tongue


RE: Fonts? - Acko - January 30th, 2014

I never knew that existed. Thanks for sharing, it looks like a great resource!


RE: Fonts? - Clayton - January 31st, 2014

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


RE: Fonts? - Darth-Apple - May 28th, 2014

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

Google Fonts is awesome! Big Grin I recently found Roboto which I'm using on a project.


RE: Fonts? - Harry K. - November 26th, 2014

I <3 GoogleFonts.

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.

That's how I am. It's so frustrating...
