I'm making fonts for fun!
Who doesn't love FONTS? Quick story! I'll never forget when I was interning at Digital Kitchen and a senior designer explained to me, the totally-clueless-but-eager-to-learn intern, the difference between fonts and typefaces. It's like when your older sibling tells you why everyone giggles after you cluelessly say "69" or when Rob Schneider explains the "Three Seashells" to you in the Demolition Man universe.
Anyway, I've always loved finding, collecting, using, studying and curating new fonts because I'm super cool and have a lot of friends. About 99% of the ones I've used in my lifetime have been "freebie" resources available on the internet from other super cool font hobbyists like myself. To pay it forward, here are a couple (hopefully more soon) free fonts to use for any personal or commercial project.
I only ask you don't redistribute them in your own font pack or sell them or something spammy because I've worked hard on these for some reason and I'm trying to actually pay something forward for once. That's all. Except for all that fine print down below you have to read.
For reals, though. Download these and use them for whatever the hell you want!
Character Guide .PDF
The Character Map or Character Viewer on your computer works 99% of the time. But sometimes you just need to know the keyboard code to type in something bizarre like the ¶ symbol or something really common like the © symbol. I got really tired of Googling "Character Symbols Mac" and remembering which site had the current curly quote combo and which one had the em-dash code. So, I made this handy-dandy little .PDF. Since it's a .PDF you can highlight and select any character and copy/paste it into your document. Hope this helps!
