I love fonts. You can say I’m obsessed with collecting them all. It’s no secret to those who know me. You’re Just My Type is a new feature where I showcase the fonts I absolutely adore and use. And hopefully, you will love the fonts I pick. 

YES. MORE GLORIOUS FONTS FOR YOU! I missed making these font posts even though it’s only been two weeks since my last one. I AM ATTACHED!

There are four main fonts I’m showcasing and two bonus ones! (Yay for bonuses!)

Bright and Beautiful, baby! Alliterations ftw!

Do you remember cutting out letters from construction paper and gluing it onto a paper when you were little? Bright and Beautiful reminds me of that. Those letter cut-outs. Also, you know what’s a beauty of this font? The ampersand is that awesome “AND.” Ahhhhh. I got this font purely for that.

(A big thank you goes to Nuzaifa for introducing me to this beautiful font!)

Fancy, right? (Imagine me imitating a British accent badly. I’m sorry to my British friends! :D)

Lace makes me think of doilies. I know lace really has nothing to do with doilies but it’s the openwork patterns, guys! You can’t deny the similarities! My cursive wasn’t very neat when I first learnt it in school (it still isn’t), so I am envious of how readable and smooth it is. My third-grade self is crying on the inside.

Look at that Blackletter! Isn’t DK Courant gorgeous? It was “modeled after 17th century Dutch newspapers” and obviously, that meant I had to use a 17th century author! :D

Oh man, DK Courant makes me think of the History of the Books class I took when I was in college. I spent so much time reading about Blackletter for a research paper. It was pretty awesome, looking at extremely old manuscripts and books that my college owned. It makes you appreciate the effort that people put into creating typefaces, manuscripts, and the like.

Champagne & Limousines makes me think of two things: 1. Gossip Girl (during the first season) and 2. the “Glamorous” song by Fergie.

I really love this font because it brings me back to my first font sleuthing case. I remember it like it was yesterday. *insert reminiscing music* It was January. A cold, dreary day. I had spotted it on a header, calling at me, and you can say I fell head first in love with it. I made it my mission to find its name. I scoured through the internet looking for its name and you know how that story ended — successfully. *deep nostalgic sigh*borderscribble

BONUS FONTS: This week on Creative Market, we get two awesome fonts that is only free for this week only! Yeeeee. Lover and Into the Vortex! You must thank Nikki @ The Paper Sea for these finds. She alerted me on Twitter, and what a godsend she is! <3

    Champagne & Limousines has been one of my favorite fonts for along time–it’s so simple but beautiful! I love Bright & Beautiful–and I especially love the AND!

  5. Champagne & Limousines looks so good! I love the Gossip Girl style fonts and the glamorous look.

  6. Annie says:

    I love the shape of ampersands but I have to say that the And in Bright & Beautiful is so cute! I need to have an AND in my header just so I can use that font! I really love Lace as well, I feel like it would go really well with some of the Valentine fonts you featured! And Champagne & Lace is so pretty too. Definitely reminds me of Gossip Girl as well. Very New York.

  7. Ohh, Bright and Beautiful is, well, beautiful. It really makes me want to create a summery blog theme!

    I downloaded Bright and Beautiful as soon as I saw it! :D Lace reminds me of those posh brunches. Very elegant. Thanks for sharing! I migjt venture into this feature’s backlog since it’s genius! *.*

  9. Bright and Beautiful is too cute, love it! Can never get enough of calligraphy fonts so Lace is perfect! Eeep I bet Champagne and Limousines will look amazing in all caps *O*

  10. This is a great feature – I personally haven’t seen anything like it around the blogosphere! Who doesn’t love pretty fonts?! My favourite you’ve shared here today is Lace… I always like fonts that look like handwriting (rather fancy handwriting) as mine is so rubbish!
    :-)

  11. They’re all so pretty! Fonts are so fun. I wish you could add fonts to PicMonkey since that’s what I use to make all my blog graphics! What do you do with these? Add them to Photoshop or another editing program?

  12. Okay Ceelem, I really think I’m going to have to make a document to start saving all the links you’re giving me in these posts. WHY YOU DO THIS TO ME? All the preciouses (you see what I did there, right? ;D).
    My favourite of these would definitely be Bright and Beautiful. I love everything about it, and am now trying to figure out how to somehow integrate it into my design. :D

  13. The Champaigne and Limousines one has been one of my favorites for a long time! I love all fonts made by Lauren Thompson :D
    This is such a unique feature, Cee!
