Why pay for fonts when you can get them free, right?

This site features fonts that really stand out in a crowd. Honest!

But sometimes honesty can be harsh.

  1. Funny site but, as you said, honest. I have often wondered at the taste for unreadable or poorly designed type; what’s wrong with all the classic fonts that we have available to us now? A good design doesn’t need an obscure (or cutsey-poo) font and a bad design will not be made better by using the popular font du jour if it’s poorly designed.
