Typography has had a huge design presence in recent years due to many reasons, some of which include the growing public appreciation for design, the increasing support and adoption of web typography, and the empowerment of typography in the hands its of end users. If you yourself are about to dive into the deep end of typography, it might be helpful to try your hand in some of the familiar favorites you’ve probably seen used in various places within the past year. So without further adieu, here’s a list of our favorite fonts, for both web and print, brought to you by the designers at DT!

    Speaking of fonts. What font did you guys use here.

    http://www.dtelepathy.com/labs/apps/flare

    It’s the handwritten font in orange.

    I would love to know!!

    Great post also!

    A great mix of both contemporary and traditional classics —well curated. I’m glad to see a fellow appreciator of http://www.losttype.com they really do have a strong collection. Leaving aside the free and cheaply available for a second, I have recently invested in a small selection of Klim Type Foundry fonts which are just fantastically crafted and a pleasure to use —these I’ll be going back to again and again! Available on http://vllg.com/Klim

      Thanks for the Klim Type foundry rec. We’d love to know what some of your go-tos are from that foundry if you don’t mind sharing ;)

  • http://www.airelon.com Paul D. Mitchell @ web consulting

    Undoubtedly huge collection of beautiful fonts. I already have almost all of them. Which is nice…that makes me a professional designer :)

    Regards
    Paul

    • Jessica Moon

      Heh, definitely :) And if there are any more you love, be sure to let us know!

    What a fab list, I’ve alwasy been fond of Archer! If your a type lover and want to take it a step further check out the typography forum at http://type.is/good ! I think it’s invite only or subscription based, but they have quite a terrific collection that can help you determine which font to use on your project too.

    • Jessica Moon

      Yup, Archer is near and dear to our hearts as well <3

      And thanks for the link! We’ll be sure to check it out :)
