Fall is just around the corner and maybe you need a few new fonts to spark some creativity in your slides, flyers, and calendars. Here’s a great post over at Hongkiat.com with 20 free minimalistic fonts you can use.  Minimalism is the name of the game in design right now, so this is a great cheap way to keep your designs looking fresh.

Here are a few of my favorites:

I was working on a project recently and decided I really needed to find some new fonts for it.  I came across a few collections that I thought would be fun to share:

1. 40 Free Comic and Cartoon Fonts: These have youth ministry written all over them.  Lots of fun ones to play with.

One of my favorites:

2. 40 Free Hand Drawn Fonts: I’m a big fan of the hand drawn look.  I’ve seen some of these before, but there were some great new ones also.

I love this look:

3. 100 Abstract and Grunge Fonts: I really like a lot of these, very current and a lot of fun for ministry.

Check these out:

Maybe these will be just what you need for your next project.  Enjoy!

Have you ever needed a quick way to see what all the fonts on your computer look like?  And even better see what a specific phrase would look like in every font?  Enter Flippingtypical.com, it’s a website that looks at your fonts and gives a sample of each, you can also type in a phrase at the top to see it in each font.  When you click a specific font you get to see it large at the top of the page.  I did a little vanity check and here’s what my name looks like in my fonts:

This is a great tool to help isolate fonts for designs you’re working on.  I can see it being a huge time saver.

Make Your Handwriting a Font

Are you always on the look out for new fonts?  Have you always wanted a font that looked just like your handwriting?  I must admit that I have.  I’ve seen services in the past that will make them for you, but they’ve always been a little more than I wanted to spend.  Sure it’d be fun, but I didn’t need to spent $5 on it.

Well I just stumbled upon YourFonts.com, and they will generate a font of your handwriting for you to download.  The best part is it’s free, they don’t even ask for an email address.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Download their template pdf.
  2. Fill it in with your writing
  3. Scan it and upload it on their site.
  4. Wait a few minutes and they generate the font and give you a download link.
  5. Install and use.

Here’s a sample of the one I created:

Looks just as sloppy as my real handwriting.  If you’ve always wanted that personal, handwritten touch, but were too lazy to actually write this is just what you need.
