When zombies arrive

Date

If you saw that title and answered, “Quickly fax judge Pat”, then you are a winner, because you knew I was about to talk about FONTS. If you’re not into fonts and are simply a rabid Walking Dead fan like me (no pun intended) you probably said something like, “Kill them through the head”. But guess what? You’re STILL a winner because you’ll always have The Walking Dead.

Lately I’ve become a little obsessed with fonts. (Is there a word for that? And don’t say Graphic Designer because I would say, Ha ha, very funny, and also, That’s two words.) Why? I have no idea. It’s not like I have a tremendous call for varying my writing. But Portlandish sites like Creative Market get me going, they really do. Here are my current favourites:

 Manhattan Darling

creativemarket_manhattandarling_preview2-o

Very Berry

veryberry-preview-1-f

Wanderlust

wanderlust-4-f

Westcoast

westcoast-1-f

Al fresco

al-fresco-size-maestro-o

All of them kind of soft and flowy. But I also like:

Burford

burford_01-oWhich is a bit more razzle-dazzle.

I can tell you the exact moment I appreciated a font for the first time. It was when I saw a Paris Metro sign, one of the Art Nouveau ones, and I bet I’m not alone in that. But that said, as in most things, I’m utterly ignorant about them really. (When I first got published, someone had to very nicely explain the difference between serif and sans-serif to me.) Even so, had I still been IMPERVIOUS to them, this excellent ARTICLE: 27 fonts give or take that explain your world, would have opened my eyes.

What about you guys? Seen any nice fontage recently?
