DIY Fontlympics

Hopefully you’ve been enjoying our 2012 Fontlympics. With the event soon coming to a close (at least until the 2014 Winter Fontlympics, when Baseline FontsMegaflakes start falling), we wanted to point out some free assets and tools to help you build your own Fontlympics at home and on a budget.

First, don’t miss out on downloading Virus FontsJonathan Barnbrook’s Olympukes 2012 edition from our free fonts page. Read the interview with Barnbrook on The FontFeed, then build your own subversive competitions.

Next up, if you’re looking for an angular typeface on a budget for the background signage of your at-home games, try out Max Kisman’s FF Jacque from FontFont, a free download on FontShop.com.

Finally, try testing out how other typefaces will fit into your games before you buy with the FontShop Plugin for Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. See how over 150,000 fonts look in your mockups with this free tool.

Get inspiration for your events from our blog posts, recent newsletters, Pinterest board and Twitter hashtag #fontlympics. We’d love to hear how your competitions turn out! Let us know in the comments.

New Education Resources: Webfonts & Licensing

Recently we reminded you of our education section on FontShop.com and today we’re happy to announce that we’ve added two new resources to the library.

This semester we are guiding you through the world of webfonts and through the basics of licensing.

Webfonts: A Designer’s Guide

The webfonts guide walks you through the files, shows you how to implement them, and directs you to tools that should help in the design process.

Licensing 101: Free Fonts Are Not Always Free

Borrowing from a popular FontFeed post, our licensing guide takes you through the sometimes murky world of “free” fonts. We know that students utilize free and discounted fonts as they begin their design education. If a font isn’t free, remember that  you can sign up for an account on FontShop.com with your .edu email address and use the promo code Educate10 to obtain 10% off your entire purchase.
