“Type is a beautiful group of letters – not a group of beautiful letters.”
The above quote from Matthew Carter reminds us that truly inspired font design starts with cohesion…how each letter will work together to form a gorgeous whole. With that in mind, we offer two fonts that understand this idea, mixed up with some whimsy and a good dose of neutrality.
Taking its roots from the classic Bodoni font, Pelmeshka is a funny and whimsical font that would be perfect for a variety of uses from blog headings to text for children’s books. It was designed by Russian designer Cyril Mikhailov. Find Pelmeshka on Behance.
On a more serious – but just as beautiful – note, Choplin was designed by German designer René Bieder while keeping three main things in mind – simplicity, geometry and neutrality. Its Open Type features make it a wonderfully versatile font. Download Choplin at Font Fabric.
Stay tuned for more free fonts coming up this fall; our Friday series has been a hit, so we’ll keep the goodies coming. And please, keep sharing the love with the designers and the folks that make these fonts possible.
