Halloween at FontShop San Francisco

IMG_1815a

Happy Halloween from the team at FontShop San Francisco!

Although our costumes aren’t typographic in nature, we thought we’d recommend a couple of designs that match our individual styles today.

Meghan’s PUNKin outfit pairs well with anything from our Distressed or Industrial & Urban Decay FontLists.

FF Manga matches Theresa’s anime-inspired outfit perfectly.

David’s sailor costume will get you through these waterlogged fonts.

Finally, Molly feels the Spooky family best sums up her look today.

5 Reasons to Pin with FontShop

We usually use this space on Fridays to talk about new boards on Pinterest, but this week we decided to give you five reasons to come join us in the social visual space.

1. You need a coffee/snack break. Let’s face it, sometimes we go to social sites to escape from our responsibilities. Our Edible Type & Mugshot boards will keep you inspired while you cozy up with Too Much Coffee and Donuts. Or just need to make a trip to the water cooler? Well, Water You Waiting For?

2. You want to dive into a typeface. Explore FF Din, FF Mister K, Bello Pro and FF Chartwell with our In Your Face boards for each.

3. You dream of being a pirate, an astronaut or circus performer. If you’ve got a parrot and an eye patch, we’ve got X Marks the Spot and Swashbucklers boards for you. Rocket ships more your speed, Space Cadet? Try Spacing Out. If you’ve run off to join the Dusty Circus, check out That’s In Tents!

4. You’re looking to learn. Go Back to School with Typography 101 and a pinnable version of 100 Best Typefaces. Plus, stay up on the latest Type Trends and what’s New & Noteworthy.

5. You just need a hug. We’ve got you covered.
