I can’t say I’m a font nerd, but I’ve tried to make a list of the fonts I find aesthetically pleasing and work well in Photoshop and other applications.
I have some pretty strong feelings about which fonts to buy.
They’re just what I’ve used and what I like to use them for, and they are just the typeface I know works well on a website.
I’m not a typographer by trade, but the way the fonts look on a computer screen is so different than what I find on a print page.
I’ve always loved fonts, but there’s something about having the opportunity to create something that is so uniquely your own, and it’s been an honor to work with the guys at Fonts Are Awesome, which specializes in making fonts more accessible to anyone with a computer.
They offer a variety of fonts for sale on their website, ranging from professional to underappreciated.
They have a wide range of fonts, from serif to sans serif and from small to large.
For my list, I went with some fonts that are widely used on the Web today, but aren’t widely used in the font world at large.
I wanted to see if they were well-known, well-liked, or well-respected.
The list includes fonts that I find particularly unique and memorable, like the Arial, Helios, Sans Serif, and Pantone fonts.
And yes, some of them are from my favorite designers, like Fontographer Daniel Kahneman.
You can read more about them here.
Fonts Are Awful is also a blog dedicated to fonts.
Their blog has been updated twice in the past year.
I haven’t visited the blog since the first post in 2016, so I don’t know how many posts they’ve updated in the last year, but this list is certainly a worthwhile read.
