“Content is king”, but can it be read? Finding and choosing the right fonts can be a hassle, not just when creating a visual identity, but also when designing for the web or print. This collection of websites offers a wast source of fonts and materials to make the design process spent more efficient.
To many times I had to spend hours in search for the right font. Does it work with the symbol of that logo? Is it readable? Is it a web safe font? Can the audience understand what is written there? Questions that I put on every single project. But why not crate my own font? Well, because I’m focusing on other aspects of the design process. This is why I’ve put this list together, to help me with this aspect.
HypeForType is a growing hotbed of top typographic talent. Born out of the (slightly) obsessive quest for fontal perfection and more respect for the art of beautifully crafted type of one Alex Haigh. This is the place where I hunt for special fonts, as I found my second love on this website, Bella.

Free, quality fonts and hand selected … you can fall in love now. A good aspect, that I like, is the support for @font-face attribute.
