The fonts I chose last week were very buttoned-down, only useful for business fonts. This week I decided to pick a font that has more artistic uses. It is a dingbat font, which simply means it is made up of little pieces of vector artwork.
Fantastic Creatures has a very self-descriptive name as it has ghosts, dragons, pegasus, dinosaurs and other cool creatures. I’ve included a graphic at right that shows just a few of the pictures included in the font. Those of you creating artwork for shirts will definitely find some of this artwork useful and I’m sure others will find a good use for these cool creatures as well. Download the font and enjoy!
Since it is Font Friday, I thought I’d throw in some font-related humor as well. There is a really funny video showing what goes on at a font conference. If you’ve been doing graphics for any length of time, you’ll definitely enjoy watching the video.
