    I love the scratches in this one. A great font for a metal band.

  3. Pulse Sans Virgin

    This is a really out-of-control font. I really dig the seismograph vibration through all the letters.

  4. The King & Queen Font

    The King & Queen Font

    What's cool about this font is the little imperfections, like the ink marks splattered around the letters. It's designed to look like you actually wrote these with a pen and ink.

    This one is just crazy! It's like how I used to write when I was angry and in high school.

  6. Helvetica


    This is one of the most wildly used fonts in the world. You can find it everywhere from street signs to the American Apparel logo.

Fonts, or typefaces, have been around for centuries. Typographers are like artists for fonts, designing interesting and practical fonts for businesses. But do you think fonts are really a form of art, or are they just a necessity?

    I believe it's an art form in the purest sense!
  • mokward 2010/06/09 10:57:36
    love to drink 'em down and imagine uses; sure they're a necessity (for those of us who still read) but they also are art, baby, art!

    Fonts are another tool for branding your company or organization.

    I think they're wonderful. Ever since I saw an illustrated something or other with the first letter fancied up in a square, i was intrigued. Now there are a jillion fonts. I like to change my fonts to add to the things i send emails or write about. For instance Comic sans is for jokes, and Ariel is for serious things. I seldome use New York Times.. those serifs drive me crazy.

    I think they are a form of art. Not only are fonts meticulously designed and crafted things in of themselves, they also complement and enhance digital art.

    For those of us who are young enough to forget what it was like to read a book;
