There are just a few weeks/days to go until Christmas – time to start thinking about gifts and dust off the traditional decorations. It’s also a great time to show off our skills as designers. And you don’t have to be a professional to create postcards, posters, greeting cards and tags for presents, for example, to surprise your family and friends. You may also want to send greetings to contacts on social media. In any case, choosing a good font – and combining it with other elements such as icons, colours, and illustrations – is something to keep in mind.
Luckily, technology makes things very easy for us, and it’s now possible to find a wide variety of free fonts on sites such as Dafont and Fontspace for use in personal projects. For professional projects, fonts can be downloaded for a very affordable price at Myfonts, one of the most popular sites with a wide variety of Christmas-themed fonts.
