What distinguishes the new Intro free font from FontFabric is the strongly expressed geometric makeup and structure. The basic letters of the Alphabet like “A”, “O” and “H” are built or based on principles of simple geometric forms – triangles, circles and squares. In contrast to the Futura font which possesses similar styling, the Intro font preserves the characteristic sharpened edges of the “А”, “V” and “W” letters even in it’s boldened form.

There seem to be endless choices — from normal, conventional-looking fonts to novelty candy cane fonts and bunny fonts — with no way of understanding the options, only never-ending lists of categories and recommendations. Selecting the right typeface is a mixture of firm rules and loose intuition, and takes years of experience to develop a feeling for. Here are five guidelines for picking and using fonts that I’ve developed in the course of using and teaching typography. 1. Dress For The Occasion

Over time the functions of typography evolved and diversified. Today typography is commonly perceived not only as one of the practical techniques in publishing industry, but also as a powerful, rich in creativity and authentic aesthetics form of visual art .

Typefaces are like clothes. They either make us look good or bad. They also indicate what kind of character we want to portray. Using the proper font can also be compared to a person who knows how to dress up to the occasion.
