9 fonts you should have in your graphic design tool kit

Growing up, I’ve always been a tech geek – building websites, going to HTML classes at the local library or, while everyone else was collecting Pokemon cards, stocking up on the latest font. Digital fonts have descended from the more traditional and classic art of sign writing and are now readily available from numerous libraries of cool and artistic fonts. Using basic photoshop skills (or even MS Paint!) and a collection of fonts up your sleeve, you’ll be ready to create some beautiful, Pinterest-worthy graphics for your blog or website.

Basic Title Font – perfect for extra information or simplistic lettering.
