I am a sucker for a good font. I remember in high school when good ol’ Microsoft Word was all that was around, and everyone used Times New Roman. Hopefully, I won’t date myself, but a few years after that, my husband, who was doing IT for a graphic design firm in Chicago, introduced me to QuarkXpress. I was suddenly in font heaven. I remember saying to him, “You mean, you can actually change the font to all these other cool fonts, resize them and space the letters out? What?!?!?” That day literally changed my life. You may be thinking I’m being a bit overly dramatic, but I bet some of you creatives will understand when I say that finding the perfect font for a project makes me happy… really happy.
And I’ve begun to realize that I keep coming back to the same fonts again and again. Most of them tend to be sans serif fonts (fonts without the little feet), although I’ll never shy away from a beautiful script or a unique serif. I thought it would be nice to have a visual reminder of the fonts I use the most to hang up in my office… and why not make it pretty while I’m at it?
The best thing is that these fonts are all free and can be downloaded from the web!
Plus, you can download a copy of font love for your own personal reference!
