How Many Fonts Does a Designer Really Need?

How Many Fonts Does a Designer Really Need? | Design | Scoop.it
Have you ever thought how many fonts you really need and really use on a given project? Maybe 2 fonts will be enough or 100-200 fonts is not a limit for you?

Via Mark Strozier
Karuna Karan's insight:

definately more than 2.. =)

I've been (tongue in cheek) in awe of free fonts on the web. This is coming from a guy who spent $95 on a single typeface (aka "font") more than a few years ago.


Now, I've got over 5000 fonts archived on an extra harddrive and use a font manager for quick access.


Realistically, I've only got about dozen fonts that I use. I try to use only three, occasionally four fonts per project.


This post on DesignWebkit.com covers the font overloading thing really well.


And after you read it let's all agree never to ever use Comic Sans, Papyrus, Brush Script or any funked-up, grunged out fonts anymore. Pinky swear! 


Thanks SmilingAnny for the tip!

Useful and easy short snippets that are doable.

Sven Jänchen's curator insight, October 2, 2013 6:11 AM

Vielleicht ein paar hilfreiche Übungen für die nächtlichen Stunden. In der Regel ist es aber deutlich besser, einem versierten Fachmann/Fachfrau die gestalterischen Aufgaben zu überlassen. Allein das Wissen um die Bedienung eines Tools macht noch keinen Fachmann ;-).

Yulia Stoyanova's curator insight, November 8, 2013 4:59 PM

Adobe Illustrator will be quite useful for every progressive teacher. Spend some time now to feel confident and free in expressing your own ideas in the future
