In today’s world, we are so used to reading and typing out perfectly shaped type-faced characters that we often forget how attractive a handwritten font can actually be. I’ve recently noticed the use of well-placed handwritten fonts throughout several of the websites that I commonly visit as well as various print media. They may be scribbled in the sidebar to highlight some categories, used to point out certain elements within a tutorial or even as the tagline of a logo. Handwritten fonts add a bit of a personal touch to a design and are quite easy to implement.
Vintage and retro style designs can be a beautiful thing. By using a combination of rough textures, grunge patterns and brushes meant to add an aged or used appearance, designers can easily pull of this timeless look. To compliment this aged appearance, it is important to use the proper typography to help match the style you are trying to represent. To help you out, I’ve rounded up 40 attractive retro and vintage fonts to use in your designs. Bobel
