12 Cool Fonts

October 15, 2009 § 1 Comment

In earlier posts I’ve shared “10 indispensable fonts” and “10 nice script fonts”. But now and then you need to add a little “edge” to your content. A sprinkle of sassiness, a dash of funk.

I think of the following 12 fonts as “specialty fonts” because you certainly don’t want to use them to typeset whole documents, but as accents, to insert some typographical “color” and make a special statement. Of course the grungier they are, the less they should be used for long passages. But in measured doses, they definitely add a coolness you don’t get with traditional fonts …and they’re so much fun you’ll find yourself determined to find a perfect place to fit them.
