For the Blogging from A to Z Challenge, I’m having Fun with Fonts. Each day I’ll feature a few I like based on either the look of the font or its name. I’ll also pick a font to inspire one of my tweet tales.
I have to say, as I scrolled through the D fonts, I was kind of disappointed. For A, B, and C, there were so many I thought looked cool or different or had names I loved that I spent most of my time just trying to narrow down my favorites to a manageable amount. But even though D had a ton of choices, there weren’t many that struck my fancy.
The first one I’m presenting is one I don’t even particularly like, I just thought it was funny to have a font available that is even worse than my own handwriting (which is pretty terrible). So here’s Dirty Cursive
for your enjoyment.
Next up is Dearest Dorothy
– I really liked all the curly cues on this one.
is interesting because even though the form of the font itself is relatively plain, the uppercase letters face the correct way, while the 'lowercase' letters are backwards. The backwards letters really help convey that sense of confusion that comes with delirium.
And here’s Driftwood
– it’s one of those where the look of the letters is all right there in the name.
For my tweet tale inspiration, I’m using Dead Ewoks Everywhere
. It’s another where the font itself isn’t very special (it even has a similar lumpy look to Delirium), but the name is a real doozy. It’s so random I can’t even imagine the thought process that led to giving a font that name. Between the wide font and the long name, the whole name doesn't even fit in the example image.
When I go into the groomers, it looks like dead ewoks everywhere. I gather the fur and make sweaters to sell to rich people with chihuahuas.
What do you think of these fonts? Do they inspire any stories in your mind? How Delightful is Molly with her letter D?
