Specialized Fonts for Graphic Designers - Part I

baby-and-booksInnocent Beginnings

Graphic designers and web designers use a basic collection of fonts when first starting out on a project. But as time and experience soon dictate, it becomes evident that a basic collection of fonts can be limited in scope and use.

This need for additional fonts turns into a hunt for the “perfect” match for your projects. In some cases this pursuit of unique fonts turns into an informal hobby of creating your own “font zoo” — a continuous addition of fonts to your collection just for the sake and enjoyment of having them. But your font zoo can be practical as well — it gives you a better assortment of tools to select from.

In this series of articles we’ll put a spotlight on various specialized fonts that may fit your needs for thematic flyers, ads, or posters. You may have some of these fonts already, but there may be a few that you haven’t used or seen before. Our thanks go to DaFont.com for supplying and rounding up all of these font creatures!

This font is best used in the larger sized points of 36 and up. Its various letters are not entirely uniform in size and presents just a hint of being informal. It serves as a good headline font.

Symphony in ABC

This is definitely a specialized font for any projects in need of a musical motif. Is it a bit over the top? Perhaps, but it can add just the right touch for a flyer design or poster.

If you want to go cute, this is as cute as you can get if you are looking for a specialized font that needs an animal or pet theme. Try this font for highlighting phone numbers or contact info.

Do you need a script font that is a bit different from standard looking scripts? Try Dali. It gets its inspiration from the great surrealist painter Salvador Dali.
