A long time ago but not in a galaxy far, far away, in times that not many still recall without shuddering, Microsoft came out with a hot new feature for Word and dubbed it falsely WordArt. It was a time of extreme horror and to top it off, they also brought forth Comic Sans. Every bit of user generated content that was not an official report (yet even some of those) had some sort of what we all thought was artsy, pretty and also colorful. With the Internet maturing we all saw the error of our ways and denounced the WordArt devil but some still worship him and stick to Comic Sans to show the world that they think he will come back to wreak havoc upon our screens.
Unlike back then, we now know that the title of a project needs to be legible, so as to not throw anybody off, but still interesting. Powerful and familiar enough to pull in but not too much so as to annoy. An old saying points out that the devil is in the details and when fonts are concerned, it’s true. Not the WordArt devil, mind you, he was hopefully banished for good or until its next reincarnation.
Finding the perfect font to head your project is as important as it is now easy using urbanfonts.com. If you have something specific in mind you can search for it or just browse until you find that free font that tickles your fancy. Download it, use it as you please and profit. However, when you come across somebody that still uses Comic Sans or any other dinosaur of its like wave your hand at them, you’ll know how, and whisper: ‘These are not the fonts you’re looking for.’
