( link love )

today's link love features FONTS! i am a big fan of fonts. i think they are so essential in design. they really can make or break design. we had to take a couple typography classes in school, it was one of my favorite classes..next to packaging of course. the projects were fun because the emphasis was of course, fonts! anyway.. i've recently come across some great blogs and sites with free fonts and i thought i'd share some. free is always nice. be sure to check out these sites for lots of great fonts.

♥ diesel, misprintedtype.com.
designer Eduardo Recife at misprinted type is an inspiration. i love the artwork and all the fonts he offers. check out his site.

♥ pablo, bellaandedward.com.
i love the feel of this font.

♥ fling let, fonts101.com.
i really love this script!
(found through haley's lovely blog, bread of many.)

♥ JFFerrule, fontstock.net.

♥ geronto bis, smeltery.net.
be sure to check out the other free fonts available on this site.
(found through a wonderful blog, idiy)

i also came across this site, kevin and amanda, where she offers LOTS of free fonts that people submit to her and she turns them into fonts. what a way to offer inspiration and creativity. check our her amazing site! :)
