Typographic Pinspiration of 2012

We started pinning back in July and have, since then, created almost 50 unique boards full of typographic eye candy. As 2012 comes to a close, here are some of our favorite pinboards:

The most delicious of them all. We have many tasty type samples up on Pinterest divided between various food-themed pinboards. From Edible Type to Savory Stems to SweetShop, you’ll find letters crafted from cookies and pancake mix to tempting fonts like Chocolate and Candy Script. Let your computer gain the holiday weight this season with more fonts!

The boards that get In Your Face. We dedicated a few boards to some of our popular FontFonts. FF Chartwell was an exciting new release for us this year, FF Mister K was one of many TDC Typeface Design Winners for 2012, and FF DIN is one of our top bestsellers. Learn more about these faces by checking out their spotlights on Pinterest!

pinterest-geekyboards2012The geeky side of FontShop. Here at FontShop, we geek out about more than just fonts. Our nerdiest pinboards reflect this best — we’ve expressed our love for videos games, the cosmos, and Middle Earth through typography. Explore the 8-bit overworlds of Mario and Zelda with pixel fonts on our Like A Boss board, relive Curiosity’s amazing landing on Mars with our Spacing Out board, and journey to the Shire with uncial fonts and beautiful photography from fStop Images on our Keep Calm & Hobbiton board.

Aside from our themed boards, don’t forget about some of our 2012 events: examine the decathlon competition and results from the Fontlympics and be thankful you’re still alive by taking a look at the fonts that were included from the Mayan Calendar Countdown. And to get you pumped up for our Best of 2012, browse through our Best Typefaces of 2011 pinboard while you wait!

Pinterested: New boards this week

This week got off to an exciting start with pictures from Mars, so we felt the need to travel through space and time using the cosmic selection of fonts available at FontShop. We created two fun Pinterest boards — you can choose to space out in a galaxy of fonts or ride on a typographic carousel!

Blasting off with inspiration from familiar Sci-Fi movie posters, you’ll find fonts that fit your futuristic, techno, or alien design needs on our Spacing Out board. Dare mighty things with Starlet Bold from Gestalten or have a friend decode a message you set in Aliens OT from Elsner+Flake.

Did you know that National Clown Week in the US is August 1–7? If you missed clowning around, don’t worry — our That’s In Tents! board will help you catch up on the fun. With a board full of lively fonts, you can use Plaza or the layered Dusty Circus Family to create your own circus at home.

Check us out on Pinterest to find these quirky characters that will take you through the cosmos and into a circus. Intense!
