Good morning my loves!
The dreaded Monday after Thanksgiving break has arrived, how are you dealing?
Besides my food baby I developed over the weekend, I would say I'm feeling pretty good :)
I thought to start things off this week I would share some of my favorite tunes:
Awolnation "Wake Up"
M83 "Midnight City"
Matt & Kim "Daylight"
Jaymay "Grey or Blue"
Donora "I Think I Like You"
I also wanted to share one of my new favorite websites I recently discovered...
...that is a screen shot from FontSquirrel.com
aka: my new go-to site for when I get the itch to go on a new font download binge.
My new favorite you ask? Caviar Dreams. Isn't she lovely?
I used to be a fan of dafont.com, but I came to find the fonts I fell in love with weren't totally "free"
You know those little .txt files that are included when you download the font?
Yeah, you're supposed to actually read those.
And if you did, you would find that you probably have to purchase the font or contact the owner and ask for permission if you plan on using it for commercial purposes, aka, selling your designs.
So after a few Google searches I finally found a source with endless amounts of free fonts that have no strings attached. Yay for Font Squirrel!
Now I kinda feel like a noob for going font-download-crazy with all those copyrighted fonts... one of these days I'm going to spend a couple hours going through my font library and deleting all of the fonts that were only "free for personal use."
Hopefully I'm not the only one that has made a mistake like this before.
It makes me wonder what other design secrets am I overlooking... someone please clue me in!
