Designer Type Resources

For those of you who follow our studio blog regularly, you will know that at Urban Giants Design we love type and typography. With this in mind we are always on the look out for new typeface resources and good typographic design, which we like to share – a font of knowledge you may say.

Recently we brought you a type resource we knew you’d go nuts for, with Font Squirrel, which you all appeared to love, and before that we showed you Sudtipos.

After finding Font Squirrel we thought we’d have a little dig around to see if there are any other designer focused font resource sites out there which are worth a mention, and we’ve found three you maybe interested in but never knew existed.

FontSmith

FontSmith is a well designed, clean looking site, full of good professional typefaces which are clearly aimed at the design and creative sector. These fonts are to buy though. Some lovely touches of CSS and jQuery going on here.

FontFabric

FontFabric looks more like a creative portfolio site than a type resource, so most designers will feel at home. This site features a lot of great looking free fonts with some nice visuals of how they look in reality.

OurType

OurType grabs your attention as soon as you open the page, with typeface examples smoothly sliding in and out of the screen. It also has an interesting little touch with the “try” and “buy” options when you hover over a typeface option. Page transitions are also impressive and a joy to navigate, to the point I almost forget what I went there for in the first place. These fonts are to buy, they aren’t free.
