I have covered the issue of free fonts a number of times on my blog and on Twitter. In fact, just a week or so ago I tweeted to “treat free fonts with caution, and that if you use a poorly designed free font and you are being paid by the client, you are doing yourself and the client a great disservice.” I would go as far as saying that if you are being paid for the logo and you use a poorly designed free font, you are not acting responsibly.…Read More

I’ll be honest, when I first heard the name I did wonder how I could be able to really do this justice.…Read More
