Looking For Free Fonts And Dingbats?



Blog design, as in traditional publication design, comes in many different shapes, sizes and styles. And in most cases, typography plays a very important role in the design in relation to the other page elements.

Understanding the art of typography is knowing your type or font. Know what typeface or font to use so as to reflect the mood, spirit and needs of your design. This is what type experts refer to typography as having a "tone of voice."

If you're on the lookout for some suitable fonts, you won't be short of choices at this new site that has an amazing collection of
Free Fonts and free dingbats, too.

UrbanFonts.com is just the place for font fanatics. They have more than 8,000 free fonts and dingbats for PC and Macintosh.

You name it: Helvetica, Futura, Old English or other novelty fonts, this site has got the lot.

If you can't tell the difference between Arial (a san serif font) and Times Roman (a serif font) then, obviously, you don't know your type.

Do you know that typography is a discipline going back to the 15th century when Johannes Gutenberg invented moveable type? And that desktop publishing revolutionized the use of type by graphic and web designers?

Apart from giving you free downloads, UrbanFonts.com is where you can also learn a lot about typography. They put you through a "crash course" on type design and typography.
