If there’s one thing better than chocolate and blank notebooks, it’s fonts.
Today, because I can’t seem to think of a better thing to write about, I’m going bombard this post with the best fonts that I have ever known, give you an idea of font pairing AND share some free font resources that most font lovers will already know but I’m going to share them anyway.
Gee, I’m so nice.
My Top 5 Free Fonts
Mellanie is a decent typeface with a playful hint. Though I’m not the biggest fan of its capitals, I still think it’s worth downloading for its gorgeous lowercase.
Mellaine is yours here.
Bromello is a beautiful script typeface and has the most AAAAH swashes if you buy the full version. But if you’re just as fine without it, download Bromello from here.
Light fonts are really pretty. Mossy is the most delectable handwritten sans-serif I know, and if you think so too, grab it off here.
ISN’T THIS SUCH A BEAUTIFUL SCRIPT?? This comes in a font family of the one above and another without those little things on the letters that make them look 3D. You can take a look at both here.
Silverwood is an awesome, sort of vintage and insanely tempting all-caps font.
If you want to get your hands on this, download it from here.
Fonts can be fun to play around with, but pairing them is the HARDEST TASK EVER.
Fear not, pygmy peanuts! Me is here to show you how to pair these awesome fonts to get a design you’ll be most pleased to have produced.
When I pair fonts, I match the scripts with sans serifs. That’s easy enough, huh? There must be a lot more to REAL font pairing techniques, but I’m happy with my way.
Mossy+ Euphoria Script
Amontillado+ Cooper Hewitt Thin
The last one didn’t really go by my guideline, but that squatted look of Gruppo stood against Silverwood, so #no regrets.
If you’re a newbie at typography or font collecting, these free font resources should give you some really considerable fonts to crash your system with.
Did you like this wee post, pygmy peanuts? Feel free to be as much of a font devotee or a pesky little critic who goes on and on and on about how terrible fonts are.
Do you think Cooper Hewitt Thin and Mossy look sorta similar (but they’re not, I say)?
Are you a raving font fanatic like I am?
What are YOUR favorite fonts?
Don’t worry, you can write really long comments. I won’t be annoyed.

P.S: If you’re planning to be a pesky little critic, your comments are going straight to the trash (and I mean it).
Evil me. *cackles*
