Favourite Free Fonts : 05

favourite free fontsHere’s a round up of some of my favourite web fonts for download. Most of these are google fonts (free!) and easy to integrate into your website/blog.

The trick to combining typefaces is to choose contrasting fonts with a similar mood. Contrast is key —you can keep it simple with bold + light weight fonts within the same family or serif + sans-serif options with a similar mood. It’s always a good idea to pair fonts with some sort of shape relationship, although I break this rule sometimes. Remember, it’s an art not a science ;)

I’ve linked some of my favourites below. Enjoy!

1. Zona Pro Bold + Zona Pro Thin  /  2. Varela + Tienne  /  3. Homemade apple + Josefin Sans  /  4. PT Sans Narrow + Merriweather  /  5. Playfair Display + Muli

Prints & Things: Happy New Year

New year and a new print! I’m bringing back this quote because ’tis the season for goal planning. As you’re writing down your goals and making lists for absolutely everything you want to accomplish this year, just remember that you may not be exactly where you want to be but you’re not where you started either. Keep things in perspective, look back on how far you’ve come and be kind to yourself. I’ll try to do the same. Happy New Year!
