I am a sucker for Sanrio. This swanky Little Twin Stars (kiki and lala) display typeface is a creation from 2006 by talented seamstress, artist and writer Choly Knight aka Shori Ameshiko. If you like nice tall elegant curleycue letters for your fancypants designs, this is a pretty decent choice. Download the Little Twin Stars TTF! Did you know Kiki can fly through the sky using the star on his back??
Good design is different from bad design by the fact that the right decisions are taken at the right time..

Hey, what a clever name. Legos. You know, those bricks you used to play with when you were young. Well, this is a spiffy display typeface called Legos and that is just what it seems to be made of – dimensional stacking toy bricks. Fun!

Marko One – also known as Marko Horobchik is a brush-inspired typeface for children’s literature from Cyreal Type Foundry As the name suggests(Horobchik is Ukrainian for sparrow), the initial idea was to create a typeface-companion for Marko the sparrow — a cartoon character by illustrator and type designer Zhenya Spizhovyi. Marko Horobchik is simple and smooth, has special inner tension and eye-catchy detailing. The letterforms are based on calligraphy and sketches — this is what makes Marko Horobchik lively, enchanting, and amiable. Marko will work best in medium to large sizes and captivating headlines.
While it is technically optimised for better performance on screen, carefullyadjusted outlines promise good quality in print too. Download Marko One Truetype font.
It’s Block Block Blockography, it’s a freeware font (not for commercial use, you know.) Created in 2011 by Måns Grebäck – a great typeface designer and logo artist (from Sweden?) – Blockography is a nice, fun, sketchy bit of fontery with slabby fun block serifs. A bit kiddish maybe, a bit fun, but pretty catchy on a poster perhaps, or something where you want a casual take on a blocky slab face. Download the TTF.
Popcorn and Popcorn Sketch are from Billy Argel, a surf-skate-punk-font designer who has put out some great freeware and commercial typefaces recently. Popcorn is a fun sketchy geometric (reminds me of some Josef Albers designs that used to be popular) – there is a sketch verison and a regular version, the regular one is also pretty sketchy though! These are ‘trial’ versions but it looks like they have full character sets, so check out Popcorn! Download the OTF files!
