01 Nov Font Finds: Delicious Type
November first marks the start of the holiday season in my mind. It’s the time to decorate your home for the holidays, but more importantly its time to get those ovens warming and your baking tins ready! It’s the season for homemade baked goodies! I know that Thanksgiving isn’t really Thanksgiving without my mom’s Pumpkins cookies and her Pumpkin Pie. I can already see the filled cookie jar waiting for me….
To celebrate the baking season, I’ve collected three fonts that remind me of that same handmade love. These fonts would also work wonderfully as the typefaces for your labels or notes that get attached to the holiday goody bags.
Mishka is our first homemade goody font find. It’s a lovely retro-esque scriptface. I adore the elegant loops and swashes, but it’s not over done and the letterforms are still very legible. There just something very friendly and approachable about this typeface.
Rhythm One is our second treat for the day. It’s another script but this one is slightly more formal, even a touch metropolitan. I think it the geometric letterforms and the pointed serifs that give it this formality. Do you have a fancy dessert to gift? A note or label in this font would add the right amount of elegance.
Populaire is our icing on the cake. We are back to another friendly font, but this one is a sans serif typeface. Often sans serif fonts are cold and without much personality. However, Populaire is filled with character! The letterforms have little nuances that create a hand drawn look and feel. The condense letterforms offer you more bang for your buck when using this typeface on smaller baked good labels as well.
Well, we tasted three delicious typefaces today. I hope this gets your appetite ready for the next couple of months of delicious holiday type and treats.
