Typography Love

One of the best parts of tackling my blog re-design was choosing the fonts. I'll admit it—I can spend hours poring through fonts online, fawning over the prettiness and drooling over the delicious typography. And you know what's awesome? A lot of the fonts are absolutely free!

Below, I've collected six of my absolute faves. (Metropolis 1920! Ahh, this font totally encapsulates the Roaring Twenties!) I haven't used any of them in a design just yet but maybe—hopefully!—soon. 

I found all of the fonts on sites like DaFont.com, Font Squirrel, and Free Typography. Out of three, I'm especially partial to DaFont because THEY HAVE A FONT DEDICATED TO STAR WARS SHAPES! I mean...that's just plain awesome. 

Happy font-ing!   (<— Not a word but that's okay!)

  1. I kind of love looking for new fonts too, and I use dafont.com pretty regularly. :) The flower in the header of my blog is actually a flower font from dafont.com. :) I like the new blog look, by the way. It's very fresh and pretty. :)

    1. Oh, I love the flower on your blog, Jaime! It's so pretty! And YAY for DaFont! I could honestly spend hours on that site if I let myself. Haha.

  2. I used to teach visual arts/papercrafting classes and had a few design jobs for a little while, and I LOVE fonts. These ones are amazing!! The Catch 22 and To The Lighthouse ones are my favs--so lovely.

    Love your new blog look, too! :)

    1. A paper-crafting class sounds like so much fun! I'd totally take one from you if we lived closer! Did you make cards and stuff? Artwork? Jealous!

    1. Aw, thanks so much, Sarah! This year, I'm hoping to take a letterpress class like you did last year!
