Font Friday 6.3

Font Friday

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
Happy Friday! Here’s a little end of the week motivation to push through until the weekend. Here’s hoping for some cooler temps this weekend around LA.

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!

PAPERSHOP

Last year, IKEA launched a stationery, paper goods + decor line in Europe. It is now available in the US, and it is awesome.  The colors and designs range from bright + vibrant to Victorian era themed. Take a look, what are your favorites?

Current Work/Mood Boards

I’ve been pretty busy with some freelance work lately so thought I would share a mood board for one of my projects. I gave the client three different directions for them to choose from which would then dictate the look and feel for the new site. Which is your favorite?

#1: Golden Vibes

#2: Floral Fun

#3: Positively Pastel

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!
Free Typeface
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.
