For the Blogging from A to Z Challenge, I’m having Fun with Fonts. Each day I’ll feature a few I like based on either the look of the font or its name. I’ll also pick a font to inspire one of my tweet tales.
Since I featured Bunny Rabbits yesterday, it might be too soon for another cutesy font, but this Cats Alphabet one was too adorable not to share. It’s a good thing I didn’t know about it when my brother and I were making our short film Saying Goodbye (it features a death-predicting cat) because I would have wanted to use it for the title screen and all of our marketing. My brother is in advertising, so he takes his fonts very seriously, and this would have led to serious sibling battles. Because even though the business side of me would have known everything had to look professional, the animal-loving side of me would have been squeeing, “But it’s letters shaped like CATS!1!1! We HAVE to use it!!1!”
I picked the next one because it is so random. And so creepy. Why are so many of the fonts creepy? Can you feel the Crazy Eyes
staring at you?
is another creepy-ish one, but I like the touch of humor that comes with forming letters out of bones.
This next one made me laugh because the name of the font and the actual font go together so perfectly. The font wouldn’t be nearly as fun if it didn’t have such a spot-on name: Cheap Ink Killed My Printer
The last one is another of those where the font itself isn’t that special, but the name is awesome. What does Casket Breath
even smell like? I’m pretty sure I don't want to know. But just the phrase has sparked at least five different stories in my brain, since it would take some unusual circumstances to have casket breath. So of course this is the font I’m using to inspire today’s tweet tale.
His heart sings when she slips into bed. He’s missed her so. But as she leans in 4 a kiss, the smell reminds him why he should be terrified.
What do you think of these fonts? Do they inspire any stories in your mind? How cute is Chloe with her letter C?
