  • These are all horrible. I am very sensitive to typography and these are a testament to the tons of crappy fonts ANYONE can design since the advent of the computer! Awful!!! These will not stand the test of time. 9 years ago
  • @waltergray thanks for the comment! Agreed that these aren't exactly traditional typefaces, but sometimes you just need a cute handwritten font to make birthday invitations, or something funky simply because you feel like it. I think it's pretty great that anyone with a computer can find enjoyment in creating something they wouldn't have had a chance to otherwise. After all, our mission here at Creative Market is to make beautiful design simple and accessible to everyone. :) 9 years ago

  • @waltergray Type is always going to be a matter of taste. I'll admit that I wouldn't use any of these on a regular basis, but they definitely have their uses, in the right context. Also, I have to take issue with your suggestion that these fonts are somehow sub-par, just because they're not from Adobe, Linotype, Monotype or one of the other big type libraries. Take a closer look at Decode, Viva Las Vegas and Axe, for instance - you'll see the creators have not only added glyphs to support most European languages, but also a range of styles and weights - I could readily see myself using some of these for posters or covers. 9 years ago
  • @AlanRalph : very good retort to the pissy Walter Gray observation. He can stick with his Bodoni and Helvetica and dream of the next Cheltenham 'til the cows come home. The fact is, fantastic (that's right Walt, fantastic) fonts are being created every day by bright young (and old) designers who know nothing of stems, terminals, bowls or descenders. Gray's Luddite perspective has no place in the world of creativity. He reminds me of the guy who said the Patent Office should be closed in the 1800's because everything had already been invented. What an arrogant, pedantic fop. Yes, one has to dig through a lot of dirt to find a nugget, so what? Great gems show up on Dafont and dozens of other sites every week. Not even sure Walter belongs in the creative genre with his stunted attitude. Sheesh. 9 years ago
  • Hmax12, see you at the doctor's office? (The one that didn't go to medical school.) A little knowledge before one operates is not a bad thing. Yes, there are some fantastic new fonts out there, but they are done by thoughtful, well trained designers. And I really don't know why my having an opinion makes me an arrogant, pedantic fop. I'll bet I'm a better designer than you are though. 9 years ago
  • Oh, alright Walter, have it your way. Note to all creatives worldwide who want to design fonts: Walter Gray has unilaterally declared a moratorium on new font designs. Please stop exercising your right to be creative until we all get the green light from Walter for future development. Is everyone listening? You're on notice. (btw: he's also decided he's a better designer than you are. And don't you forget it.) 9 years ago
  • The patent and copyright office should both be closed. Corporations use patents and copyright as a control mechanism for corporate polluters who put profits over people. 9 years ago
  • No moratorium, as I stated before, wonderful new fonts are being created. And I really appreciate getting to green light all future development! 9 years ago
  • Derek Stevenson: You are absolutely right in thousands and thousands of instances. But patents/copyrights do sometimes protect bright breakthroughs by independent entrepreneurs with enough money for a competent attorney. 9 years ago
  • this is a nice list. 9 years ago
  • @waltergray you know nothing about the designers behind these fonts, and you prove it by posting comments that contradict begin with "these are a testament to the tons of crappy fonts ANYONE can design since the advent of the computer!" and in your next comment - "Yes, there are some fantastic new fonts out there, but they are done by thoughtful, well trained designers." However both these comments would apply to me as I designed one in the list (Decode) but I also am a thoughtful, well trained designer having studied at one of the best institutions for graphics in the UK and graduating with a first class honours degree. May I also point out that Alex Haigh, the designer behind Electro, is also a very proficient type designer and has many successes to his name. Please think before you degrade a group of work. Yes you are entitled to your opinion but some people will take your words seriously when in fact they are misinformed. 9 years ago
