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!
Pursue Your Dreams
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.]

The world lost a very wise and special woman this week, Maya Angelou. For today’s Font Friday, I chose a quote from her that reminds all of us to be nice to those around us. Always try and be a bright spot in someone’s day :). The font, Roboto, can be downloaded from here. Not only does it come in various weights, it also has an italic version for each (a huge bonus for a free font!). Enjoy!

In honor of 25 years of digital type design, Adobe has offered a free font, Source Serif Pro. It is a serif font, and since it is designed by Adobe, you know that the kerning is going to be good. Enjoy, and have a great weekend.

Too often, we all get caught up in the minor stresses of life. It’s important to step back and realize how awesome life really is, and how lucky we are to greet a new day. Have a great weekend, and hopefully you can enjoy some sunshine!

I am LOVING this script typeface, Remachine Script. It is free for personal use, but make sure you read the license if you would like to use for commercial purposes. Remachine Script can be downloaded from here.

Happy Friday all! I’m looking forward to this busy weekend ahead, and hopefully will get some time to be outside! Surrounding yourself with positive people and good energy is one way to be happy! I love this versatile typeface, 5am Gender. The letters are very tall and narrow, but have a great amount of thickness, making it ideal for many uses! Enjoy!

I like the simplicity of this sans serif font, Mission Gothic, and the various weights that it comes in. I thought it fit nicely with this Don Draper quote, and would be great for headlines and prints. Enjoy!
