Font Friday 6.6
FRIDAY. I hope you all had a great week and are able to relax and do something fun this weekend. Today’s free font download is Adobe’s newest creation, and has me and all my design friends totally geeking out. It pulls characteristics from Helvetica (a tried + true typeface, arguably one of the most popular of all time) and combines them with DIN (my current favorite font, legible, visually interesting and seemingly growing in popularity daily.) Designed by Adobe for their new Apple watches, this typeface is versatile and contains numerous weights, making it ideal for any design project large or small. Link to download is in this article, at the bottom. Have a great weekend!

Font Friday 6.4
Loving this art deco inspired font, Le Super Serif, that can be downloaded from here. Not only is the font a beautiful serif, it also comes with numerous ligatures that make this font have a little more personality. Enjoy!
Font Friday 6.3
Happy Friday aka weekend eve! I’m so excited for all the events I have this weekend (sneak peak: a fun photo shoot in the works happening Saturday!) and to have a few days to relax a little more. Hope you all have a great weekend!
Axis is a sans serif font that is great for headlines, posters or a small amount of text overlay. The free download only comes in the bold weight, but I love the width of the letters, and it’s legibility. Download Axis from here! Enjoy!
Font Friday 6.2
Prata is a nice serif font that comes in only one weight + style. But, it does have that killer ampersand. I am a big fan of ampersands with a little flair or personality, and will be adding this to my list of favorites!
Font Friday 6.1
After a temporary hiatus, Font Friday is back in full swing. Today’s font is inspired by cowboys, wild west signage and mostly, Frontierland at Disneyland. Enjoy!
Corki is a slim slab font that has southern charm and flair. The font comes in both upper + lower case, with four different weights/types. It also contains numerous glyphs that make for fun designs or posters. Enjoy, and don’t forget to read the licensing before using.
Font Friday 6.0
Happy Fourth of July! Enjoy some BBQ, fireworks and our freedom. Hope you all have a great three day weekend, with lots of outdoor time + picnics.
Alexis is a great slab font that is reminiscent of the western days. It is great for headlines, posters, or any large scale type. I would not recommend using it for body copy as it has such a LARGE personality and will be difficult to read. You can download Alexis from here. Enjoy!

Font Friday 5.9
PHEW it’s been a crazy few weeks, with Alt, Freutcamp and catching up with my job! My Alt Summit recap is coming next week, so get excited! Today’s Font Friday is from Emily McDowell + Garrett Gee‘s presentation. I have been a fan of Emily‘s work for a while now, and I love her fresh, real approach to her cards and comedy. They both spoke about pursuing your passion, not letting fear get in your way, and finding your own point of differentiation. Huge shout out to them, they were both hilarious and incredibly inspiring. Enjoy, and have a great weekend!
I decided to mix it up with today’s Font Friday, by showing two complimentary fonts. The script font, Jenna Sue, has the right amount of hand written feel, yet neatly done feel to make it a script font I’d use. The sans serif font, Quaver Sans, works well with the script because of its consistent lines and lighter weight. Together, they highlight the other. [As always, check out the rights to the fonts before using.]
