Really nice handwritten script fonts are hard to come by, so I was excited to find Rickman Script over at DeviantArt. Unfortunately, the font is only free for personal use, but a commercial license is available.
Web FontFonts are high quality, screen-optimized fonts designed specifically for web use. FontFonter uses custom CSS and other techniques to temporarily replace a site’s font styles with Web FontFonts, making it a great tool for web designers to quickly see how their site will appear using different font combinations with doing any coding.
FontFonter also offers a handy browser bookmrarklet that works in Safari, Chrome and Firefox which brings up a small floating panel to allow you to select serif and sans-serif fonts to apply the site you’re currently viewing.
Junction is a free humanist sans-serif, and the first open-source type project started by The League of Moveable Type..
Identifying unknown fonts in design projects just got easier. A new bundle of font tools from Extensis makes it easy to identify, purchase and add fonts to designers creative arsenal.
Until December 30th, 2011, each purchase or upgrade of the Suitcase Fusion 3 font manager for Mac, designers get the font identification tool FontGenius ($40 value) for FREE.
FontGenius allows designers to:
- Identify fonts used in any picture graphic
- Preview matched fonts, even uninstalled fonts
- Search, download, and purchase matched fonts
