Tell me about how YOU use fonts—I’d love to learn

Hi everyone 👋

I’m curious—how do you use fonts?

  • Free vs. paid
  • Neutral fonts vs. expressive fonts
  • Large font collection vs. shortlist of favorites
  • Organization with font manager vs. ad-hoc per project
  • How do you pick fonts?
  • How do you pair fonts?
  • How do you learn about typography?

Anyway, these are just some of the questions that come to mind. I’ve heard the saying that design is 95% typography, so I’m curious and would love to learn more about how YOU use fonts—even if the answer is you don’t change the defaults.

I genuinely want to know and chat—I will reply and upvote all comments when I wake up tomorrow. Thank you all! 😄

    As a presentation design company CEO and co-founder, I have a bit different approach towards fonts. In brief, you can read it here:

      Hi Alex! Ahh, that reminds me of the classic web safe and cross platform fonts

      And the default font stack

      Both good options when compatibility and speed matters most
