Pinterested: New boards this week

Dive into our Pinterest boards this week with a recap of the Great American Typefaces we covered in our July 4th Newsletter and a collection of fun fonts on our water-themed board.

Last month, we listed out our Top 10 Great American Typefaces in our July 4th Newsletter — if you need to refresh your memory or are feeling patriotic, our Great American Faces board features the fonts from our Independence Day focus on American typography including Sweet Sans and Goudy’s Decorative Initials.

As the end of summer is nearing, it’s still important to stay hydrated! August is National Water Quality Month in the US, so we went fishing in our ocean of fonts for some water-themed faces from Linotype’s WaterFlag Regular and F2F Whale Tree Std Regular to Electric Typographer’s Finfont — you can find these gems in our Water You Waiting For board.

Quench your thirst for typography with these two new Pinterest boards!

Pinterested: New boards this week

As things kick off in London today, we’ll be pinning athletic design inspiration on our Fontlympics 2012 Pinterest board.

Next week, we’ll be hosting the Fontlympic Decathlon on our blog. The five typefaces that will be competing against each other in various events next week will be showcased not only on the blog, but the Fontlympics Pinterest board as well — you won’t want to miss out on which face will be crowned the best all-around typeface!

Besides the Fontlympics, we couldn’t contain our excitement for the release of the Dark Knight trilogy finale last week and took a look into the use of typography in the bat years gone by.

From the onomatopoeia discussed on the FontFeed a couple months ago to the comical lettering of Adam West days, Batman has flown through sharply edged letters to shiny type to serifs and finally down to simple sans for the Dark Knight trilogy. Check out the typographic evolution of Batman beginning with movie posters from the 1940s on our Holy Typography Batman! Pinterest board.

And for the coffee-holics anonymous out there, we have a Pinterest board just for you:

On our new Mugshot board, you’ll find a selection of coffee-themed fonts and matching images from fStop. Every time you feel like you’re having a case of the Mondays, head on over to our Pinterest to find type samples and images that will make you feel better.

Have a Pinterest-ing weekend!

Just like webfonts and OpenType in the font world, there’s no escaping Pinterest in the social media realm. We created boards to share with you on Pinterest — from new fonts to type in the wild to inspiring typography designs, we’ll be pinning some of our favorite finds from around the internet as well as showing off the great fonts we have available on FontShop!

If you miss an update or like to go back to see old posts such as our Staff Picks, our Pinterest boards will be a good source to keep you up to speed with our happenings. New fonts available on FontShop and any announcements can be seen on our New & Noteworthy board and helpful resources we have to offer can be found on our Typography 101 board.

If you’re feeling nostalgic, we also have a visual list of the fonts that were featured in our Best of 2011 newsletter last year. We’ll be recapping our Best of 2011 Typefaces through Pinterest with more eye candy for your typographical needs.

Every week, we’ll feature a typeface and showcase examples of fonts in use as well as relevant images from fStop with our “In Your Face” boards (e.g. Bello Pro). You’ll also be able to learn more about type designers with our “Designer Spotlight” boards (e.g. Goudy), which will focus on their work and influence.

We like to have fun here at FontShop — if you’re Pinterested, check out some of our other boards: Swashbucklers, Drop Cap It Like It’s Hot, and Amplified!
