DefinitelyJenny Loves: FridayFonts

wave3

I stumbled upon this website a while back when I was flicking through the internet, and despite my knowledge of typography to be limited; I was instantly hooked on this site. It’s nicely laid out and showcases a range of letterforms made in a typography workshop by a variety of people. The workshops were usually hosted on a Friday hence it’s name. What I like about the site is that not only does it showcase the font but also interesting and experimental ways of achieving and presenting it. For example, my particular favourite ‘wave’ was created by experimenting with the round folds of paper, and there’s sketches and initial experimentations, which, teamed up with the final images outside of the usual ‘alphabet’ shows how ‘image’ and ‘type’ can merge and overlap into one another.

There’s lots to see and each font/typeface has the creator’s name and details, so that if you wish to use it for yourself you can contact them. To see their full collection click here.

All images were sourced from the website.

Oh and before I go, the ‘Wear the Bear Competition’ is still going! No one has found the secret word yet. I’ll give it one more week before closing it methinks. So, I encourage you to give it a whirl.
