Font Friday 5.0

Happy Friday to all. I always have a post-vacation hangover it seems, where I miss being able to explore new things and be in a new city. Having good friends and fun things happening makes it much easier to get back into the swing of things. Enjoy today’s Font Friday, and don’t forget to make the best of what you have, no matter where you are!

This font is called Vollkorn, and comes in several weights (always a huge plus for a free font!) Check it out, I love how the italic works so well with the rest of the font.

Chalk Lettering

I have always admired the gorgeous works of chalk lettering done by very talented designers and artists. Here are a few of my favorite below.Chalk Art

I am loving this playful serif font, with awesome rounded terminals. BONUS: it comes in so many different weights, to fit many needs. It has a very elegant feel and would be awesome for prints/posters. Download Glamor here. Have a great weekend!

Garance Dore + Rifle Paper Co.

Garance Dore | Rifle Paper Co
I met Garance Doré at Alt. Summit last month after she gave her key note talk. What an inspiring, positive woman who is talented beyond belief. When I found out she was teaming up with Rifle Paper Co. to release her own stationery collection, I was ecstatic. The line was shown March 1 in Paris, and will be available in the states soon! I can’t wait to get my hand on some of her cards. Check out some of my favorites below!

Font Friday 4.7 / Oscars 2014

The Envelope Please | Oscars 2014
This week, I had the privilege of attending  The 2014 Oscars Winner Envelope preview party hosted by Marc Friedland Couture Communications. In the last few years, the creation of the award envelope has become a work of art, and quite a big deal. Updated in 2011, Marc Friedland has revolutionized the look and feel of the Oscar awards. (Check out this USA Today article here for a more information about the new envelopes/awards.) Attending the event with my good friend Troy of Simply Troy, we got to see a first hand look at the creation of the most famous envelope in preparation for this Sunday’s Oscars!
[This week’s font Friday is dedicated to the award show. Download this font, Born, here]

Three envelopes are made for each nominee in every category. After the winner is announced, all other envelopes are destroyed, other than the one given to the winner. Pretty special!

Mock-up of what the winning card and envelope look like. The envelope weighs about 1/4 pound and is about 1/8″ thick. It makes quite an impact.

Delicious desserts, bits and drinks filled the room. (The party was sponsored by Ciroc and Beverly Hills 90H20).

Font Friday Inspiration
Happy Friday! This quote is particularly resonating with me today, and is a good reminder to take chances and go after what we want. I think we all are trying to find ourselves, and thinking about what we want is a good way to discover who we want to be. I really like this font, Baron Neue, and all the weights that it comes it. Check it out, and download it from here. Have a great weekend!

Font Friday 4.5

Happy Valentine’s Day, and happy Friday to all! I hope you have a great weekend, whatever your plans may hold! It’s supposed to be nice here in LA this weekend, so I’m hoping to get some much needed outside time! Valentine's Day Free Script Font

I love the playfulness of this script font, Motion Picture. It is versatile, and works well in medium to large sizes. Enjoy!

Font Friday 4.4

Too often I think we sell ourselves short of reaching our full potential. Here is your friendly reminder to never settle and always reach for what you want. Happy Friday and have a great weekend!
Don't Settle. Go for your goal.
I’m liking the distressed look and vintage typewriter feel of this typeface. I think when used sparingly, it becomes an a great visual addition to any layout or print. You can download this free font here.

Font Friday 4.2

This week I have been at Altitude Design Summit, which is something I have been so looking forward to. I’m loving getting to blog, doing all sorts of design projects and getting to meet new people. This conference seemed like the perfect interesection of all three, and let me tell you I am LOVING it. Definitely check it out. Coming was taking a chance for me, and I am so glad I did!
Font Friday Kenzo
I like a lot of san serif fonts that are tall and not too thick. Kenzo meets both of those requirements, and I love how it looks as a display type. Enjoy and have a great week!

Font Friday 4.1

This time next week, I will be at Altitude Design Summit! I’m so excited, I can’t even stand it! Enjoy today’s font friday, and this little French quote. Sometimes we need to remember, not everything will always be perfect, so take it in stride, and c’est la vie.

I enjoy this decorative typeface, and think it is great for headlines, prints, or stationery (how cute would that type be as a monogram!) Ecuyer Dax can be downloaded from here. Happy Weekend!
