How To Turn Your Handwriting Into A Font

Add the ultimate personal touch to any document: turn your handwriting into a font and use that. There’s a lot of creative potential here, and it’s a lot easier to do than you’d think thanks to MyScriptFont. Friends don’t let friends use Comic Sans. It’s just a bad idea. If you want a font that looks handwritten, don’t mess around: create a custom font using your own handwriting and use that.

Beautiful Motion Graphics & Typography Comes To Life On Vimeo [Stuff to Watch]

Tight typography and swish motion graphics can’t be learned overnight; it’s a skill that takes years to master. Sophisticated software and video editing techniques are not the instant talent that many mistakenly believe they are, and so true masters of the art should be celebrated much in the same way animators, artists and filmmakers are. When it comes to this sort of content there’s no question that Vimeo is where it’s at.

How To Get Mac & Windows Fonts in Ubuntu [Linux]

Whenever you’re happily setting up your new Ubuntu system, one of the things you’ll probably think about the least is getting the correct fonts installed. If you’re a bit confused about why I mentioned fonts, it’s because most distributions (or at least those who’d like to remain legal) only use free, or “libre”, fonts. While there’s absolutely nothing wrong with using these fonts, there will most likely be multiple cases where you’ll be required to have certain fonts.

WhatFont: Find Out What Any Type Of Font Is On A Webpage [Cross-Platform]

Have you ever been on a website and wondered “What type of font is that?!” I have. And depending on your interests and area of focus, you may even do it more than the typical Internet user. You could spend hours searching for the font on your favorite search engine, or you could use WhatFont. WhatFont is a browser extension and bookmarklet that you can enable once you’re on the website with the font in question.

5 Typography Resources To Help With Your Designs

We all know that fonts are important, right? I mean, when there’s a website bashing Comic Sans exclusively, we know it’s obviously important enough for someone to care about font usage. However, what makes a good font? What goes into properly using a font? These are the questions that bother me when I’m trying to work on something that involves any element of design. Fortunately, I’ve found a few websites to consult when preparing to use fonts.

Free Font Friday: Comic Sans, You Are Not Alone (With A Bonus Video!)

Comic Sans is one of the most notoriously abused typefaces, but it’s been taking it like a champ, and just keeps on being its cheery, quirky self. Also, it’s not the only comic font around – just the most famous one. So I’ve decided to dedicate this month’s Free Font Friday to Comic Sans.

Take Your Fonts Out On a Date To See If They Match With Type Connection

Whether or not you take an active interest in typography, I’m sure you’ve seen something like this before. A document whose writer (or, worse still, its designer) tried to be overly creative, and did some horrible font matching. I don’t just mean “used Comic Sans MS” (the perennial “awful font” everybody loves to hate), but even if the writer or designer used “sane” fonts, they don’t always go together.

10 Cool & Interesting Web Applications On Fonts & Typography

I have always been intrigued by how thick and thin lines, angles and shapes can come together and form beautiful fonts. Just a shift of pressure on a stroke and you can get something entirely new. That’s the magic of typography.

Typography is art in its truest sense, and the web has certainly made it more mainstream. Choosing the right fonts and a theme to go with it are joined at the hip when it comes to web design. The right combination gives us a web design that spells ‘wow’.
