Hello. My name is Paulina. I’m a fourth-year public relations major at the University of Florida. This semester, I will be sharing some of my favorite design tools with you. Whether you are a professional graphic designer or an aspiring public relations specialist looking to impress potential employers, I hope you will find these resources helpful in your professional career.
This week’s topic is typography. Below you will find applications, web sites, and articles related to the art of type.
Prototypo: Prototypo is a web application that lets you create your own font without the trouble of drawing a font from scratch.
Google Fonts: With Google Fonts, you can access and download from a plethora of fonts. Oh, and it’s free!
Font Squirrel: Similar to Google Fonts, Font Squirrel lets you (legally) download thousands of fonts for free.
Canva Font Combinations: With its font combinations feature, Canva was designed to save you time. Simply, select a font and Canva Font Combinations will generate a list of fonts that complement the original font.
Smashing Magazine: In the article “Best practices of Combining Typefaces,” Douglas Bonneville explores the do’s and don’ts of combining fonts.
