Typography | FontFuse

FontFuse could become a great resource for font pairing and inspiration. You can trawl through the galleries of different pairs, or submit your own. As most designers know, coming up with good font pairs can be difficult.

Layout | Typefaces of the World poster

The Typefaces of the World poster is a very pretty poster, highlighting the origin of 50 popular typefaces alphabetically, and listing the date and author.

The idea is to familiarise designers with the origin of the type, so as to be able to better use the different faces. I think a timeline element would add to this, maybe by lengthening the line accordingly.

Typography | DJ Kitchen free dingbat font

I am currently looking at putting together a cookbook for personal use of recipes from mine and other food blogs.

I had a great idea of using food icons as bullets for each recipe step which would give a clue as to the type of cooking in each step. For example, a knife for cutting, pot for boiling, pan for frying etc.

I just found DJ Kitchen Font, a free dingbat font of kitchen utensils – perfect.
