'T' for Typography Filing Cabinet

Eloquent Pro Font

The swashes! The contrast between thick and thin! Good golly, that’s a sexy typeface.

I’d love to see this as the star of a blog design. I miss doing design work for people and sometimes I think I would like to just make blog templates for fun. For fun! I have no idea of what a good time is, you guys!

    How much have you invested in fonts? Do you think it’s well worth it? I’ve never bought one and am nearing the end of my rope with free ones. Any advice?

      I’m all for paying for quality fonts. It’s part of my job as a designer, so it’s easy for me to justify the purchase (though I don’t buy nearly as many fonts as I’d like). The fonts now do so much through open type with alternate ligatures and swashes that free fonts just can’t match. Supporting the type designers is important too.

    Yes, go back to designing, I always wanted you to design something for me (don’t know your pricing so can’t say how much I can afford : D).

    I’d seen that font around and always wanted to know what it was! I found a bunch of other swashy fonts in my search, but I couldn’t pin down this particular one. So thank you for posting this :D

    Cute font! And if you are in need of a good time, please feel free to knock yourself out designing a template for my brand new (sad) little blog. Just kidding! But I do think you have great taste so thanks for always sharing all the fun stuff you find with us.

    Reminds me of Pampodour in Lost Type: http://www.losttype.com/font/?name=pompadour

    A few designers put these fonts together for free. You can donate or download for free. :) thought you may enjoy a new resource.

    That ampersand reminds me of the one in my blog design. I searched forever for the right one!

    Well, I so very badly need a reboot of my blog’s layout. That is a really cool font, and I’m already thinking of all the ways to use it.

    Oh you know I could totally do you a favour and let you redesign my blog. You know, like, just to help you out and stuff.

    That font IS beautiful, though! It would look great on pasta sauce jars or a restaurant menu, but that’s probably because all those words now have me thinking about my stomach..yet again!

    I too am a font geek. I just have to make myself stop looking because I can really get hung up on them. Crazy! Eloquent Pro is pretty fab though.

    Ooooh, I heart that Ampersand and the S.

    I’ve always stalked your design site and I know you haven’t been open for awhile. I’d definitely pay for you to redesign my site.

    Lovely typeface, i am partial to thick and thin mixes at a the moment! Do you know of any other tpefaces that mix the two weights? I cannot for the life of me find out how to find them. “Thick and thin typefaces” and “fonts with thin and thick lines” doesn’t help *sigh*
