• Typography – 5 Awesome Type Foundries With Beautiful Examples

    So typography is awesome. From the popularity of my Quality Free Font posts (serif, sans-serif, script, and even dingbat) I’d say yall enjoy type a good deal too! :) Free fonts are nice, and there are some very beautiful, well-crafted free fonts. But, there are also a whole lot of great type foundries out there creating beautiful, unique premium fonts. So today I’d like to show yall five very cool type foundries, and some of the work that they do. There are a lot of different type foundries, so there are going to be a few more of these posts! I’m listing a few samples from each, but be sure to check out all of them to see a lot more great fonts. (If I left out your favorite type foundry, let me know in comments, and I’ll try to include them next time!)
