There are all sorts of way to expand your understanding of typography: great books,iPhone apps, online tutorials…Each are great, when you’re into studying black text on white pages and copyright-free examples, or when taking the flash card approach.
But, what about real world examples? What about seeing the typefaces you love not in a menu somewhere, but on a billboard, in a magazine, or in a logo at the grocery store?
That, my friends, is where Fonts in Use comes in.
A relatively new site, Fonts in Use aims to, “catalog and examine real-world typography wherever it appears — branding, advertising, signage, packaging, publications, in print and online — with an emphasis on the typefaces used…This blog is a prologue of more to come. Behind the scenes, we’re building a searchable, sharable archive of typographic design, all indexed by typeface, industry, and medium. And you’re invited to join us. Stay tuned.”
