Funky Fonts

If you are into creating Logos and other imagery for your own site ( my little obsession!) sometimes the fonts that are already on your computer are not enough.

There are a few free font sites out there but my regular port of call is 1001FreeFonts as you can ‘test’ each font by typing in your own text which is useful in the ‘Custom Preview’ window

Download to your desktop ( fonts come in zipped files) unzip and then open the folder, if you’re using a PC with Windows you need to place the individual font files files into:

C:  > Windows > Fonts

The fonts should then automatically appear in the drop down menu of most of the programs you use which have a textual element.

I’m still using my trusty old PhotoShop7 for imagery but you can get Gimp which is a very good free Open Source equivalent.
