font love

If you’re a designer (and even if you’re not) there are probably certain fonts you absolutely cannot live without. My favorite Web site for new font discoveries these days is MyFont.com–tons of fonts, freeware and otherwise–in a sleek Web interface that is as attractive as the fonts themselves.

Here are some of my favorites:

sexsmith

Sexsmith. It’s playful. It’s fun. If a font could be sexy, this one would be sexy. I use Sexsmith over at Calobee Doodles and it’s one of those I keep coming back to… I have to force myself not to over-use it!

rosewood

Rosewood Std Fill. This font was designed to be used as a (you guessed it) fill for its fancy cousin, Rosewood Std, but I think it stands quite well on its own.

didot

Didot. One of my regular design practices involves combining a simple serif with a simple sans-serif, and this is my simple serif font of choice.

littledays

Little Days. Another of my Calobee Doodles favorites. Whimsical and a little loopy, just like me!

Respect the font, people. What are your favorites?

  1. I like whatthefont.com. The name is great, but it also helps me with those “oh, I know this!” moments.

    I’m all over Sketch Rockwell, lately. Even made a logo out of it.
