One of the things I played around with tonight was fonts. I’d heard about dafont.com, a website that lets you download fonts for free. Dudes, it was fun to look through. They have so much stuff- I’ll definitely be a repeat (non-paying) customer!
For fonts we wanted something that was a bit vintage. Like a 1940’s or early 50’s vintage. Or National Park Service vintage. The first font set I came across and downloaded was Betty Noir for the headers, Dymaxian Script for our names, and Kelmscott Roman for the information boxes, where we need the text to be super legible. Here’s the front of the current mock up:
After fooling around with those two, I tried to find another font set to try. I’m not totally done with option two for fonts, but I did find a NPS 1935 text, which the Park Service started using before WWII! Check it out:
Overall, what do you think?
