Happy Monday, everyone! It’s our favorite: font snob day at The Handmade Home-where we all take a stand against poorly designed, horribly overused, wretched little fonts that simply shouldn’t exist. Hurray!
If we seem like snobs, it’s because we are. ;} And if you have no idea what we’re referring to, just be sure to clickety click on our past posts…and revel in our obsessive over the top distaste for all things in the way of comic sans. Yeah. We know. We’re so awful.
So in the meantime, in the way of awesome products for the font snob enthusiast, we’ve found some magnets that are right up your alley: this fabulous alphabet is fun on the fridge…and they’re tastefully done in a simple font + grown-up stainless steel finish. This way, your kids can be snobs too. Spread the snobdom.
This project is super fun for those things around the house that require that accurate look in your replication of fonts. As I’ve said before, fonts in art, are like faces and hands…one wrong move and the entire look is changed. This fabulous project gives you a perfected look for a modern canvas project. Perfect for a gallery wall! And I think you could use it in more ways than one…Let your font snobiness shine!
And for a few of you who recently asked me for a few tips for working with fonts…it’s truly hard to narrow it down. Our design courses began with the in depth study of typography in school, and it truly is an art. Thus the passionate dramatical lashout towards poor, helplessly sad fonts. Here are just a few simple rules of thumb we follow, to keep our designs simple, and avoid bad font useage:
And finally, what you’ve been waiting for: We’re such a snobs, that its hard to compose 25 worthy fonts…repeatedly…so we’re branching out. But these were well designed + fun! Enjoy!
All of these are free…just be sure to check on their licensing for personal vs. commercial use. Happy font loving!
