    Fonts can make or break a project. Whether it’s on a T-shirt, an ad or a headline on a website, if a font is boring or really hard to read, you’ve already lost your audience. Finding the right elegant font can be particularly tricky, though, since the intricate detail can often render your words illegible. There’s no shortage of fonts on the web, yet the really good ones, the outstanding ones often come with price-tags that immediately raise your blood-pressure. On the other hand, pricy fonts are not used by everyone. Chances are, that you’ll not find them in each and every brochure or pizza menu out there.

  • To Eat With Your Eyes: 40+ Delicious Food Typography Designs

    Delicatessen and fabulous fonts are two sources of inspiration for me, and when they are combined, even better!

Designers then have the chance to trigger cravings with the food, which viewers then associate with the typography. Of course, most food typography is purely for artistic purposes, but every once in a while you may come across a title font that would be perfect for that restaurant website you are building. At the very least, the following collection of food typography designs will give you some great inspiration, whether your project is a cooking contest or the creation of a new font.

  • Source Sans Pro: Adobe’s First Open Source Font

    It’s only been a few weeks ago, that Adobe’s font developer Paul D. Hunt surprised us with the release of a modern, elegant font under the – gasp – open font license.
