favorite fonts

[livejournal.com profile] anakins7 asked me the names of some of the fonts I use in my graphics. She inspired me to make a list of my favorite fonts. Also a personal list for me to keep track of the fonts, just in case I ever lose them =) Feel free to look under the cut to see what kinds of fonts I mostly use.


favorite fonts

» moody boys

I don’t use this font that often, but I think it’s a great font for headers and wallpapers. It’s elegant and perky.

» folks

Probably the font I use the most. I just love it. It works perfectly for icons and everything else, really.

» apple garamond

You'll have to play with this one a little. I personally use it mostly in bold italic.

» coolvetica

Another one I use very often, especially on wallpapers. A clean and neat look.

» bebas

I've recently started to use this font more. It looks great on icons and in combination with other fonts.

» decker

Decker reminds me of Century Gothic, only Decker is way better. I used this font a lot when I first started making icons.

I LOVE that you did this! I don't normally use too much text in my icons. But when I do, I'm always at a loss of what to use & they never look right. Thank you!

YOU MISS, I LOVE YOU RIGHT NOW. I will be grabbing those as soon as I get home. I love using Cooper Std, too. And I agree that Moody Boys is one of those fonts that's best for headers and wallpapers instead of icons.

Bebas means 'free' or 'freedom' in our local language here. lol.

You're awesome, I'm totally going to try using some of these, although I'm sure my efforts won't be as good as yours - check out my new icon that you made me :)
