I tend to be a little bit of a typography nerd… I might even get mad at the TV if I see a poorly-used font in a commercial. I’m not the only one who does that, right?
Just like a commercial, the right font in the right place can do wonders for a parish website or publication (with very little extra work involved). Whether you’re looking for a new font to brighten up the front page of your parish’s bulletin, a parish website home page header, social media graphics, etc., below are regularly updated sites I turn to when I’m in need of something new.
The fonts are either free, open source, or co-op:
- 1001freefonts (Free, the “Google” for fonts)
- Lost Type (Co-op)
- The League of Moveable Type (Open source)
- FontSquirrel (Design-oriented, free for commercial use)
