Font: Homestead by Luke Lisi.
Phrase: mine? everyone’s? nobody’s?
About the font: Very well made, lots of options so it’s fun. Actually the background are variations of the font.
Where to get it: Well I got it here.
Thank you for following me. I’ve been absent, trying to get back here.
Today I got this font I found recently and wanted to tryout. Let’s get on with it.
Font: Vanity by Hendrick Rolandez
Phrase: from the movie “Funny Face”, starring Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire.
About the font: It’s beautiful. Hendrick was the creator of Glamor, another font I already used in my "Everybody wants to be a cat" poster, so it’s not surprising that he delivered such a fancy and gorgeous font family. It comes with 12 fonts, you have light, bold, italic, and lots more to experiment. It looks beautiful in all caps, combined, and everything in between. However, this free version has one thing missing: special characters, it doesn’t even include dots, comas or inverted comas, etc. I don’t know if he’ll expand it later, or maybe if there’s a payed version that comes with all of this, but so far, we still got it pretty good, I must say.
Where to get it: You can download the OTF or TTF zip file, whichever you prefer, right here on his Dribbble.
I’m sorry I sort of abandoned this blog, thing is I’ve been super busy.
But I’m planning on getting back to this. Soon. Like next week soon.
Font: Born by Carlos de Toro
Phrase: Taken from Erich Fromm's book “The Art of Loving”
About the font: Born is a humanist typography, very beautiful, it’s Carlos de Toro’s first creation and one of the best of free fonts from last year. I wanted to do a simple poster and just show off the font because I love it.
Where to get it: you can download it here with the condition of tweeting or sharing on facebook. This free version comes only with Regular variation but it’s very complete, it comes with 262 characters, high case, lower case, etc.
Sorry I’m not uploading. I’ve been very busy last week and this one, hopefully will start uploading next Monday!
Thank you to the followers, and eventual likes and reblogs, you’re nice :)
Font: Alex Brush by TypeSETit
Musket by Bu!
Phrase: Charles Bukowski's book "Love is a dog from hell"
About the font: I’ve downloaded Alex Brush a long long time ago and never thought I’d put it to use, but today while I was looking for a brush script for the word love I found it was one of the best free font family’s out there… It’s very well done, very organic and with beautiful proportions. As for Musket, I found it on a list for the best 50 fonts from 2013 and I liked it a lot, I’m a little turn on what’s going on on the lower curve of the G, same happens with the C, but the as for the rest, I liked it very much.
Where to get it: Alex Brush can be found in FontSquirrel and Musket can be found on Bu’s webpage, you can put a price on it or simply write down $0 and download it for free.
Font: ADAM by Shrenik Ganatra
Communist by Shamrocking
Phrase: Taken from the song Nicotine by Panic! At The Disco, album Vices & Virtues.

About the font: The font Adam, the sans serif was created with Futura as an influence, and it’s very well done, the attention to detail is fantastic. The font Communist is a very nice serif font, I was looking for something that wasn’t garamond in particular, and found this one, the pack also comes with the sans serif version. Both good in my opinion.
Where to get it: You can get Adam here and Communist here.
Font: Kaiju by Anthony James
Phrase: Rupaul & all the queens @ Rupaul’s Drag Race
About the font: It’s fun, I’m using it now and on this phrase beause I would never know where else to use it, there are a few things I’m not a fan of, like for example, the regular version has the thin lines way too thin… the bold version works better, the spacing on letters like W is a bit of a problem for me… but it’s still very fun and different, and Anthony James has a paid font called Argö that looks fan-tas-tic, so I’m giving him props for that too.
Where to get it: You can get it here
Font: Simplifica by Kaiwa
Phrase: From the fantastic movie Fight Club
About the font: Isn’t it just great when you find a perfectly made type that just works? There’s only one version, and it is regular, I always like having some more options to work with, but it’s free, and it’s perfectly done, so I can’t complain. Simplifica is a family I’ll most def use again in other projects, the clean and condensed aspect of it is, as I have said before, one of the things I like most in type families.
Where to get it: Well, I got it from here, but you can get it here too.
Font: Glamor by Hendrick Rolandez
Phrase: Title from the song featured in Disney’s The Aristocats
About the font: Isn’t it beautiful? I think I’ve already mention how I’m a big fan of fonts with contrast in thickness, in fact one of my fave type family is Bodoni… and then there’s this one, with the little dots, and the delicate curves, the weight of the font is just perfect and I love it. I didn’t have to fix any spacing or anything, ‘cause I like how everything fits…. what I haven’t tried is writing without caps, and I think I’m missing out on that experience ‘cause from what I’ve seen, it’s pretty beautiful too.
Where to get it: You can get the font at Dribble.
