Finding the right font to use on a project just got a little easier. This is a quick post to tell you about Flipping Typical. [tweetmeme source=”Ileane”]
“A way to explore the popular typefaces you have on your computer”.
Once you are on the Flipping Typical site, at the top of the screen type in the words you want to see and Flipping Typical will generate a display that allows you to preview those words in a sampling of the different typefaces available on your computer. It’s fun to play with this site and it just might come in handy if you want to quickly pick typefaces to use on your email signature, a blog post, logo, banner or advertisement. Here is an example of what my name looks like in some of the fonts I have on my computer. Notice that it is important that I use the correct font because my name starts with an I.
If I use Arial it looks like my name starts with a lower case “L”, but in the Georgia font the capital “I” looks great!
Check out Flipping Typical and find some fonts to play around with, then stop back here and let me know what you found.
