  • I love free fonts!

    • i used to feel that way but there are sooooo many terrible ones it makes me very wary of downloading any. this one’s good though.

  • I guess I should have clarified. I love quality free fonts. There are definitely a shit ton of free fonts and most of them suck :) Thanks for wading through the muck and finding us a winner!

  • download worthy. thanks.

  • Oh, I love the book look. Thanks for the link!

  • thank-you

    see if i can put this to use

  • Am

    This font reminds me of the writing exercises little kids (including myself, last time – I still remember!) do in school, where they have to trace the dotted lines of each alphabet so they can learn to write the letter correctly. :D
    I like it dashed!

  • D

    Often is quite nice, but do take note of the license before using it.

  • DB

    THIS is the BEST free font of 2008?!? All the others must have REALLY sucked. Seriously, not sure what the big deal is with this font. I would never use this, and no-one in my design studio would either. OFTEN font was better than this one…

  • haha so angry, thanks for your input

  • I wonder if DB stands for Deuche Bag.

  • DB

    Brian, it stands for DOUCHE Bag (not “DEUCHE”). And in regards to the font, I suppose it’s not TOO bad and perhaps could be used for… No, it really is just awful.

  • DB, what design studio do you work for out of curiosity?

Director Jordan Peele’s Alternate Ending to “Get Out” (Leaked Video Clip)

Spoiler Alert: Do not click below if you haven’t seen “Get Out” yet! I wasn’t completely mind-blown by this movie but I really enjoyed it and I’m excited to see what director Jordan Peele makes next (apparently his next “social thriller” is slated for 2019). I don’t want to say too much but I thought the end of the film was unexpected and satisfying. Now an alternate version has leaked and it’s interesting because it’s also not what I thought was going to happen. Watch the full clip below.
