Alphablog: F is for Font Websites

I long for more opportunities to buy fonts. I can honestly find myself spending hours browsing and perusing the internet and its vast ocean of sites dedicated to providing fonts of all specifications, forms and prices.

In all honesty, so far in my career I haven’t found I can really afford to invest in fonts as much as I’d like, but it’s not for lack of interest. As a graphic designer I believe that one of my main responsibilities is to appropriately apply typography to communicate a client’s message. Choosing the correct font is much more than scanning the fonts that come with my mac or others that I’ve accumulated over the years – if I can include font purchase within the budget of a job I will always try to do so.

Ken Taylor

Just stumbled upon the work of Australian illustrator/designer Ken Taylor.

You’d be well advised to do so too! Some excellent poster/album artworks including this beauty for Bob Dylan. Perfect balance of type and illustration. Love it.
