I am that person that will often judge a book by it’s cover, and the same goes to fonts listed on MyFonts. I am far more likely to take notice if there are some aesthetically pleasing gallery images to sell the font.
Case in point: Thirsty Script by Yellow Design Studio. I’m generally a sucker for lettering fonts like this, but add some lovely gallery images and you’ll have me by the balls. Particularly enjoying the lime green palette, but also check out their great descriptions:
Enticing descriptions are also important: Thirsty Script from Yellow Design Studio is a contemporary script conceived as a marriage of elements from vintage signage scripts, Wisdom Script, Deftone Stylus, Lobster and even Proxima Nova. The result is a typeface with a ‘new meets vintage’ vibe. It’s friendly with an edge… a mixture of retro script, modern sans serif, and a shot of caffeine.
You can grab the entire Thirsty Script type family for a silly price $18, which includes: six weights from Light to Black, old-style figures, contextual alternates (for a slightly more traditional feel), multiple language support, and a handy selection of ligatures and stylistic alternates.
So for $18 instead of the regular $89 I see no real reason why you shouldn’t purchase Thirsty Script right now!
Type Hero for Logo Designers
Type Hero is where I pick out certain fonts and typefaces that I find particularly cool. For the most part the font choices will be geared towards styles that I feel could work well in a logo design.
MyFonts has become a steady source of font inspiration, so many will be sourced from there, but I will also highlight fonts direct from font foundries when possible.
