How Many Fonts Does a Designer Really Need?

How Many Fonts Does a Designer Really Need? | Designer's Resources | 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?
Mark Strozier's insight:

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!

What's this?! Even MORE free fonts?! Say it can't be!

What's this?! Even MORE free fonts?! Say it can't be! | Designer's Resources | Scoop.it


Today we bring you 50 amazing free fonts. This collection features some old time classics, as well as plenty of rare new fonts. All of these fonts are super high quality, and really professionalism, so should add a nice touch to your work.


Actually some of the fonts are pretty nice. There's only one or two that I [personally] would use, but it's pretty good selection of free fonts.

Here it is the long-awaited panel of free fonts for the year 2012! We have tried to gather a large collection of fonts for all occasions. You can download them for free, and some can even be used for commercial purposes.
Mark Strozier's insight:

I'm a font junkie. I've got +5k fonts stuffed in my computer. Thankfully I've found a great font management tool.


Anyway...


Here is a collection of fonts to freshen up your font collection.
