So, Happy Spring and all that crap.

Time for another #FontFriday I think…

First up is a font to celebrate Spring. Yes, it is horribly cheesy – but what the hell!

It’s called Blomster. Kinda cute if you like flowers, or need to do a silly invitation or something weird.

Next up is Hotel Coral Essex. It caught my eye because of the texture of the font. I found it in the “Eroded” section… but it looks so soft. I really like it.

Last font for today is just so cute – I love stuff like this! It looks best on a big scale… which is why I made the thumbnail bigger than normal. The detail is awesome, all the little stars and crosses and squiggles… I especially love how some of the letters look like they are unravelling (See the “S” and the “C”) … very cool!

Hope you enjoyed the fonts :)

I like fonts… like A LOT :) I have over 10 000.

I figured a section dedicated fonts on my blog would be cool.

There is a place (most places actually) that calls for fonts like Arial, Helvetica, Avant Garde, Times etc etc. Yes, we all know about these fonts and they are great, and work well – but what about the fun fonts… the ones that make you smile (or make me smile at least). The Font Section on my blog is for these fonts. The ones you download, but hardly ever use.

The fonts you save, hoping a job will come in that calls for a crazy fun font. They are few and far between (the jobs, not the fonts – hell there are millions of these crazy-ass fonts).

Every now and then, I’ll put up a few fonts and where to download them.

Here are the first three… Please welcome:

“Hooked on Booze”, “Slugfest” and “Billo”

I have actually used 2 of these 3 fonts! Hooked on Booze adorned an invitation to an (Anti) Christmas Party. And I recently did some Lipbalm labels for a client and used Billo – it looked pretty cute :)

(it looks weird on such a small scale though!)
