Choosing The Right Font

This isn’t a long post but just wanted to pass on a great piece of advice on choosing fonts. I heard it from Brad Zimmerman. Basically every font has a voice so read the piece with that voice.

Example: Comic Sans looks like a child wrote it. Read it with a 2nd grader’s voice. Does it work for your message. I think Brickham Script Pro sounds like Julie Andrews.

By the way my favorite place to find free fonts:
DaFont.com
Smashing Magazine

There is more that goes into choosing a font but I thought this was great advice.
