    The fonts are looking awesome except the “jo-wrote-a-lovesong” and “Ginga” font..Not looking that great and doesn’t satisfies enough.

    The “FAIL” font is best amongst all.

      Jo-wrote-love-song and ginga font is make our eyes hurt for sure if we see it for a long time.

      But i think Jo-wrote-love-song and ginga font can looks good if we use it in appropriate place. The same things can happen for other font also.

      I mean, good font can be bad if we use it without considering many aspect such :
      – blog topic
      – blog background colour
      – the font colour

    Hawaii Lover and Hawaii Killer is killer design fonts. Simply love it.

    May I request sir? If you can find some fonts used by big companies such as Coke fonts or alike?

    Is that legal to be distributed and use by public?

      Nicholas Z. Cardot said:

      Ron Boracay –> That’s actually a really good idea. I’ve seen some other posts that cover that subject so I will dig around and find some and post them for everyone. That’s an awesome idea.

      Arisu said:

      Ron Boracay>>

      Sometimes they make their own font for logo and stuff. But most of the time the designer just makes little changes to some comercial font to get the logo.

      Yahoo font is around and has no legal issues if you like it 😉

        Ron Boracay said:

        Yeah, I have seen those Yahoo and google fonts floating around the web, but, I love to collect those great brand logos like walt disney, coca cola and etc.

    I have never really been a fan of the grunge style, I guess because I would never have a blog or anything for that matter in the grunge category. I think they are pretty creative fonts, but grunge is just not my thing!

    Great set of looking fonts there, Nicholas. If I captured this 5-10 years ago, I would have been really into them. I used to love creating graphics, and signatures and was mesmorised by any grunge effect font.

    I am sure they are going to be of use, to many.

    Thank you :)

    They are not thrashy…they’re cool! But there’s a small niche for them so I guess people don’t get to use them a lot.

      Especially for a formal topic blog/site such politic or finance, they’ll surely not using the font, right?

      It´s just a matter of balance – a completely grungy site may be hard to the eyes, but a grungy logo on a smooth, clean theme can be very beautiful.

      And I use sketeched fonts for signs and post cards at the office, for internal stuff 😛 Even if we are in a major business firm, doesn´t mean we must be bored; and that´s my statement with my design for internal communication.

        akira07 said:

        Hmm after i think, you’re opinion is not wrong at all. This era is a time for us to stop using usual font such Times New Roman or Arial :P.

        • September 17, 2009

          Arisu said:


          Please don´t! There are many nice fonts to use only Arial or Times -I do use Arial, but not for everything XD –

          Just please don´t go anywhere near Comic Sans!

          • September 17, 2009

            akira07 said:

            Why? I love Comic Sans MS. I use it when i’m chatting via Yahoo Messenger.

            • September 17, 2009

              Arisu said:


              Well, Comic Sans it´s the most hated font by designers ^^ It´s just used everywhere and by everyone and it´s not that pretty. There´s even a campain to ban it – t-shirts and all that stuff involved –

              But if you really love it… what can I do? 😛

                Haha i just know there is a controversy about comic sans font. Can you give me more detail of this matter (maybe site url).

                Ah but for me the usage of font is not a big matter. Sometime people don’t care about the font. For example, i read this blog but i don’t care about the font. Since the font is clean and simple, it’s OK.

                  In order to built a reputation or image for your website or blog fonts are very important. But it doesn´t matter if you use Arial or Times for the text – logos are another issue.

                  And this is the site for the ban comic sans movement:

        Arisu –> I think that the fonts on this site have elements of grunge in them.

        • September 18, 2009

          Arisu said:

          Nick>> You could say so, but they´re really nice 😀

            Nicholas Z. Cardot said:

            Arisu –> I’m probably wrong on this, but when I think of grunge, I think of texture. I think this site has a few elements of grunge texture but with the light tans it evens things out to create a warm environment. That’s my hope anyway.

              Definitely, you´ve made a great work designing sitesketch, the information is well organized and you can easily get whatever you´re looking for; the colors are easy on the eyes and you can look at it for hours if you want to and the textures and forms give a fun, cosy feeling to it but it also looks up-to-date.

    The font used to write “FAIL” is great. It’s so simple and looks like made by pencil.

    Thanks for sharing the info…!!!
