  • Bristol web design, June 29, 2010

    Nice, I need some cool fonts.

  • Web Design York, July 5, 2010

    I’m a huge fan of thin fonts – I think they appeal to the minimalist nature of a lot of the designs that I create. Good to see a decent round-up of some fonts that I haven’t come across as of yet.

  • nikhil, August 17, 2010

    Nice collection. Thanks for sharing it.

  • Lauren, October 1, 2010

    Wow, I am so stoked that you have included my font Champagne & Limousines in this list!

    BTW- I am that weirdo who @ replied to you on twitter a few days ago that “you rock,” or one them, as it is possible that more than one person would @ reply a similar statement towards you :P

    Anywho, I am (obviously) sort of a fan of Vandelay Design …

    I am pretty sure the reason why, as said fan, that I am only noticing this now, is because upon my initial reading of the post title, it occurred to me that I have made a few light fonts. In order to keep alive my fantasy that I don’t totally suck, I chose not to find out that I in fact do suck; sites like Vandelay Design would never feature a font of mine. XD

    Cheerio,
    ~Lauren
