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.

Amatic is my obsession. I have a tight leash around it because I love it and I don’t want my love to go away!
I don’t if you have noticed, but I use it on every banner and card I’ve made since I found the font back in November. (Friends can vouch for this.) Something about this font does it for me. I can’t pinpoint the reason why and I can’t even describe it. All I am able to say is I love it just because. That’s it. Do I need any more reason than that? Nope. I love what I love.

I want a crown made of flowers because of Fleurs de Liane! I shall wear it and declare myself Queen of the Flower Fonts! Flower petals will fall from the heavens and I will laugh in delight!
Isn’t it gorgeous? I didn’t discover this font until this post, but what a find! Look at it! It’s so pretty! I love the way the flowers wrap around to shape the words. When I look at this font, I wish I had flower petals so I can toss them around. (I secretly wish I was a flower girl.) It makes me happy because floweeerrrsss.

Jenna Sue is everything I wish my handwriting to be. It’s pretty and cute. I am quite envious of it because my handwriting is sloppy compared to this. Sometimes, when I’m writing, I have the urge to scold my handwriting, “why can’t you look like that?” while I gesture to Jenna Sue. C’mon, look at those flawless loops.
This font is absolutely perfect for any personal projects you have or to trick your friends thinking this is your handwriting when you actually have a non-readable one. (If you do the latter, my mouth is zipped. ;D)

Metropolis comes from the industrial movement of the 1920′s where skyscrapers where born. “Using a double line technique, I wanted to create my own Art Deco style font that represented this era. The result is a bold, bumptious typeface with a stolidly calm disposition.”1
When you look at this font, tell me you thought of The Great Gatsby too. It’s that art deco influence, ya’ll! Every time I look at it, I can’t help but sing “A Little Party Never Killed Nobody (All We Got)” by Fergie. (Out of all the songs, that one is stuck in my head. *shakes head*) Can you just imagine the 1920s parties? Flapper dresses, the short bobs, the music, and the dancing. I have a soft spot for the 1920s because it was all so glamorous (and a bit depressing). And Metropolis exudes that 1920s feel.
This font isn’t the best for typing up sentences, but it’s perfect for titles. You can use it to get that 1920s vintage art deco feel on posters.

Haven’t you ever dreamt of owning a typewriter? I know I did! (I had one, but I’m pretty sure it broke or it got too expensive to upkeep. :( ) My Underwood is so great. You can pretend you’re in the 1940s, hunched over your typewriter, trying to complete a newspaper article while your boss is yelling across the room for you to finish and your co-workers are smoking cigars and not answering the ringing telephones. I’d want to write an epic murder story with this font while I fast-talk like people did back then. (I dare you to not read this entire thing like those fast-talkers. ;D)
Unfortunately, you don’t get the clickety clack typewriter sound with this font, but never fear! I’m sure you can imagine it (and I’m pretty sure there’s a website for the sound).
What do you think of this new feature? Do you like the commentary?
I’m pretty content on how this post is structured. However, everything can change because it isn’t set in stone. I know I should have a theme, but I hate doing theme-type things. If I put similar looking fonts together, it all begins to all look the same, and I want to give you variety! I want to do posts where I showcase a paid font and the free alternatives, but I am totally not great at finding those. :P
If you have suggestions of how I should structure them or any constructive feedback, please tell me. I am open to all ideas! Please give me feedback over on this form. :)
