Font Friday 4.0

WOW! Starting the new year with my 40th Font Friday! I thought this quote was especially fitting for this upcoming year. Stay tuned for my new years goals next week. I’m still letting it sink in that we are in 2014!
Font Friday Young
Young is a great sans serif font that comes in a regular and italic style. It works great for a headline, or for smaller, multiple lines of text. Enjoy! (Also note, Pantone’s 2014 color of the year, Radiant Orchid.)

Font Friday 3.9

Happy New Year Font Friday
The holidays are over, and 2014 is right around the corner. I always find myself reflecting on the past year and looking forward to my goals for the new one. What did I do that worked, and what can be improved on (more on that next week!) Enjoy this week’s font Friday, a thin script that mimics handwriting. Bacana can be downloaded from here. Have a great weekend!

Font Friday 3.8

I don’t know about you, but when I get home from work, I look forward to watching the 25 days of Christmas on TV. Home Alone has been playing a lot lately (I’m not complaining!) and has one of my favorite movie lines of all time. Thank you Kevin McCallister, for inspiring today’s Font Friday.
Home Alone Type
I like this slab typeface that comes in a variety of weights. Josefin Slab has 5 weights, and italic options for each.  Any free font that has thin–bold and italic options is a win in my book. Enjoy and have a great weekend!

Font Friday 3.7

Whew! Busy busy over here in design land, how about all of you? I can’t believe we are a little over two weeks away from the new year. I’ve been feeling especially feisty lately, and I keep coming back to this as my mantra. Enjoy!
Hustlin' Fox
This week’s Font Friday is Geomancy. It comes in both a thick (shown) and thin. It has a retro feel that works great for posters.

Font Friday 3.6

Tis the Season Font
Now that Thanksgiving is over, we are in full holiday mode, which means that it is perfectly acceptable to be listening to Christmas music 24/7. I am doing exactly that. Enjoy today’s font, Canter, and have a great weekend. I have some fun things planned, especially for my blog. Anyone doing festive things this weekend?

Font Friday 3.5

Greetings from Seattle, and Happy Thanksgivingukkah (or day after Thanksgiving.) I’m so happy to be spending some time with my family in Seattle, and celebrating two special holidays! Hope you all have a great weekend!
Altast Font Friday
I love Altast Greeting, and think it works well on a card, or print. It is a very happy and welcoming script, and the thicks and thins are subtle, yet well done. Enjoy!

Font Friday 3.4

Here in LA, the weather has been just the right amount of fall. It is slightly overcast, scattered drizzles and a little colder than normal (aka, 63 degrees). Well, I am LOVING it. After growing up in Seattle, I was tired of 325 days of rain. I needed the sun. Now, after living in southern California for college and a little post-grad, I’m finding myself missing that fall feeling. Believe me, I don’t need excessive amounts of rain, but it is great to be able to wear my boots and scarves every once in a while. Either way, loving this weather, so excited for the weekend and T-5 days until I am home in Seattle!
Type and Rain Love
Signika is my choice font for the day. It is a great sans serif that comes in four weights (I like options!). It has pretty good kerning built into it, which is always a huge plus, and looks great in all caps, upper and lower or as a headline. Enjoy this versatile font and have a wonderful [fall feeling] weekend!

Font Friday 3.3

It has been a crazy week getting prepped for Thanksgiving and I am so excited for the weekend! I have lots of fun things planned so stop by next week and take a peak! Have a great weekend!
FR2S Font Friday
A different take  on Font Friday today, since this typeface has so many options. Sullivan is a great display type face that has three different choices: Regular, Beveled and Filled. All three are in the alphabet above! How will you use this font?

Font Friday 3.2

Friday is finally upon us! You all know how much I love this day of the week! Enjoy this positive reminder that things will all work out.
FR2S Font Friday
Adele (yes, it is called Adele) is a great thin san serif font that works well for headlines. It also has a lowercase option, which is always a bonus. I’m a big fan of this font, and big fan of this quote by Modest Mouse. Have a great weekend!
