Need a logo for your business or a new look for your website or brochure? Myfonts is a great place to start poking around the world of fonts, even if you don’t know the difference between a dingbat and a descender. You can try out various fonts according to style and era by entering your text in the handy box, and then purchase the font of your choice… they even have some free fonts as well.
On the learning side, Myfonts also features a blog and a newsletter which are at times (very nearly) inspiring enough to impel me to pick up a pencil and start sketching out my first font.
For now, I’m leaving that to the professionals — a unique breed unto themselves, who are required to don stylish eyeglasses whether they need them or not.
