Pinterested: New boards this week

Fonts don’t stop at digital downloads only — type is everywhere! We created two new Pinterest boards this week to help satisfy your type desires in physical form.

Fonts can be just as stylish as other designs we sport on a daily basis. Our Wearable Type board features fashionable finds from temporary tattoos to apparel to jewelry. Continue to be proud of your type geekiness even when away from your computer with these finds! Wear News Gothic designed by Morris Fuller Benton and John Renshaw on a warm hoodie, show your love for Simoncini Garamond with a t-shirt, or mark yourself with some slabs.

We also know many of the fonts we have available on FontShop are mouthwatering, but you can’t eat them (even if they are named Roast Beef or Candy)! Our Edible Type board will give you real glyphs to drool over. You can also find food-themed fonts such as René Menue Symbols OT from URW, Poppi Food Two from Emigre, and Too Much Coffee and Donuts OT from Comicraft on our Editable Type board.

Be sure to follow us on Pinterest, otherwise you’ll miss out on some tasty type!

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!
