Talking fonts with typeface designer, Steve Matteson

Crazy, but I was literally managing my Fonts when I decided to check my latest YouTube Subscriptions. This was at the Top of my Queue.

Thanks for the video, but dayum, that interviewer was boring.
 
I loves me some font. Iíve always enjoyed the design and creativity of a cool font. Iíve got one swimming in my head, but donít know what to do with it.

I was reading recent discussions about the Zite App. Iíve mentioned before, that is my go to app everyday to read the collected articles Iím interested in. Zite has a smooth, easy to read layout that they reformat from the original web page, primarily using PT Sans from Paratype, but there are sprinklings of Palatino and Cochin. And it looks like thisÖ





Just beautiful

Hey Mac, do you have a particular Font Manager you like? Anyone that has owned a computer even for just a few years accumulates a lot of fonts. And I'd say that 3/4th of any Font Library won't ever be used on a personal or professional level.

I'm trying out a few Free Font Managers and right now I using NexusFont. It's pretty good for something that you get for free. But I'm always on the lookout for even better (i.e. Free) Font Managers.

I don't have any recommendations. I've not collected fonts for awhile. Haven't done anything creative for awhile either.  :-\

You make planes. Spray paint a font on the outside of it. 2 birds. One font.

Blambot and Comicraft are the Big Two for those that work in the Comic Book Industry. Along with fonts for saie, they have a wide range of Free Fonts too. But if Free Fonts are all you want, head over to Dafont for all the Free Fonts you can fit into your Computer.

More cool Font sites. The first two are geared to figuring out specific Fonts that you like, but don't know the name of.

Can You Spot the Hidden Images in These Famous Logos?

Very cool stuff. Some of the Logo's I've always knew regarding "hidden" images. But I never picked up on the FedEx logo at all. D'oh!!
