2 Year Anniversary + Huge Giveaway Celebration
Blogs rarely last very long. They age more in dog years than human years, so making it two full years feels like quite an accomplishment. I’m stoked with the progress the site has made and the support from the design community and my sponsors. I’m shocked and humbled it’s already been a full year since the birth of my son, which I shared about in my 1st year anniversary post. He’s healthy and amazingly energetic, he makes me smile constantly, and is just a blessing in the truest sense of the word. Below is a little glimpse of what I mean :)

15 Exceptional Handwritten Free Fonts

Handwritten Fonts

Typography is possibly one of the most important design aspects of any project; using typography that doesn’t compliment your design can be incredibly detrimental to the design and effect usability and obviously the aesthetic properties of the project. There are thousands of fonts from many foundries available, as well as custom fonts that people wish to create and share. Common sense will tell us that the paid fonts will be of a much higher quality, and have the full character sets but there of course exceptions to the rule. (Museo and Chunk are a couple of great examples.)

With every element of design there are trends. One typography trend that we have seen quite a bit, is of handwritten fonts. This style can be used in many ways, for example client testimonials, signatures and in grunge designs. I have gathered 15 handwritten fonts that particularly stand out for me; the notable part worth mentioning is they are all free. But please do read the usage rights regarding commercial designs and projects.
