So, on the topic of how much I love fonts, did I mention how much I love fonts? Specifically, how much I love free fonts licensed for commercial-use that are beautiful and fun to use?
The internet is awash with shareware/open-source fonts from people experimenting with typeface design, and it can be a bit daunting to comb through them all for that perfect, inspiring, professional-looking font. It is also super-expensive to buy professional font families from the usual distributors. That’s why I was so happy to find www.fontsquirrel.com which is a curated website full of gorgeous free fonts with licences for commercial use.
It’s nicely laid out and easy to navigate so you can get a quick preview of the font before you click on it for more detail, or you can just download it right away if the preview convinces you immediately (sometimes I find with free font websites you have to navigate through several pages to even see if you like the font, and then decide which download link is the real one and which one will give you a hard drive-eating virus). If you want to purchase a font family, their sister site, www.fontspring.com, is chock-a-block full of tasty, reasonably priced fonts.
Time for a font-spree!
