Pinterested: New boards this week

We have a few new Pinterest boards up this week including our X Marks The Spot board that we created especially for those who were plunderin’ for typographic treasures on Talk Like A Pirate Day.

On our Alphabetized board, we’ll be pinning interesting finds that showcase full alphabet designs ranging from posters, unique fonts, home decor, and character sets designed just for fun.

In line with our Typographic Trend this week, our Let’s Get Physical board contains images and items of type in the physical world as well as three-dimensional fonts including Buster OT from Elsner+Flake designed to appear like the letters are popping up from the ground and Ironmonger Three D OT from Font Bureau, sharply chiseled down to catch your eye.

If you love our pinboards and have friends on that are in need of some typographic goodies on their Pinterest feed, spread the word!

Plunderin’ for Typographic Treasure

Ahoy, designer mateys! Aboard the good ship FontShop today some of us arrrr fully celebratin’ Talk Like a Pirate Day. If yer out revelin’, here’s some type booty for ye to check out.

First, fer all ye fans of our Pinterest page, we’ve got a new board that should suit yer fancy.

If ye prefer fontlists, we’ve got an oldie but goodie buried on the site. Ye can pillage Pirate Fonts to yer heart’s content.


If yer lookin’ for bedtime tales of the sea for yer parrots or lil’ scalawags tonight, have ye heard the one about Jim Ford‘s Captain Quill? After losing his right hand to a spirited sea dog, Captain Quill settled down to focus on his first love, nautical treasure cartography. The ease of stroke in this swashy script face confirms what his boyhood calligraphy teacher stressed from the start: It’s all in the elbow.

If you’re not sure if ye are “hooked” on any of these, try ‘em out first in the FontShop Plugin for Creative Suite. Stock up on sea type for your next adventure or on landlubber fonts too.

Yar!
