Do you get geeked about fonts? Love the way copy comes to life when rendered in a certain style? Always tuned in to the latest type trends?
Then we’ve got a newsletter for you: MyFonts is a compilation of the “rising stars” in new font styles and treatments.
What the newsletter may lack in slickness and sophistication it more than makes up for in sheer unbridled adoration. Take, for instance, their treatment on the recent trend for flourish-filled fonts:
“Most of the stars of the moment bathe in ornament and swashes. What’s true for hip-hop probably goes for typography too; you either love the bling, or you hate it.”
This newsletter is jammed full of interesting new fonts, plus clever bits of bio and background on the designers. It’s an adulterated fan page for “screen typography addicts,” and we can’t get enough.
If fonts are your thing, or if you just love a good resource for upping your design game, do yourself a favor and sign up.
