Favorite Fonts

 

I don’t know about you, but I can easily get lost looking at beautiful fonts and typography. It’s something I’ve been fascinated with since I was little and find myself when I’m feeling a little blue or dry on inspiration searching through Pinterest for new ones to try out. I have a friend Paige who is a graphic designer (and sadly left us for Nashville when she got married) and I started following some of her boards because she would find the coolest images.

Now, I have stashes of saved notes in Evernote, my g-mail drafts and random stickies on my computer with the names of my favorites so that on different occasions I can find what I’m looking for. I’m drawn to sans-serif fonts (without any curves on the ends) and enjoy simple signs outside of restaurants or coffee shops with basic lines. However, you guys know I also love handwriting and have a special affinity for those fonts as well.

I’ve stumbled upon really awesome posts (like this one with 16 days of type in Paris) that I love to look back at and see how I can continue to push my own creativity. I’ve gathered some of my personal favorite fonts and Pinterest boards for you to check out yourself!

    I just pulled the trigger yesterday and bought Cantoni Pro for my new branding on the blog (not live yet!) but just told myself it was more of an investment than a $60 font. Also a big fan of bombshell!

    Don’t know if you know about Fonts for Peas http://kevinandamanda.com/fonts/fontsforpeas/
    People submit their handwritting and the lady converts them into FREE fonts, updates them pretty often too!

      So awesome! :) I love Cantoni Pro, shoot me a note when it’s live I’d love to see it! Totally. I’ve actually spent a lot on fonts for down the line in life and sometimes they go on sale too. I haven’t heard of that one but that’s AMAZING! Thanks for sending!!!
