Quigley Wiggly from Maryland based Nick Curtis at Nick’s Fonts (he also did this funky germanic matterhorn font i had posted last year).. Quigley is a funky fresh script, when i first looked at the spec sheet for it, it didn’t really pop off the page for me – but set a few words with it, and POP! looks really nice and slick, flowing, fun and still legible.

Rollergirls is a fun shareware font from Claes at FuelFonts “a small swedish typefoundry” – Fuel is a pretty well established name amongst typeface designers, having been putting together great shareware faces since 1997! Rollergirls is an ideal choice if you are looking for something that’s easy on the eyes and fun to use, and to make it a little more enjoyable – Claes has made the dots on the lowercase i and j from little hearts (for the most, upper and lower case letters are very similar in this face). The rollergirl letterforms are a little out of the ordinary, geometric and mix the angular with nice oblong roundess. Download Rollergirls TTF font from FuelFonts.
Veggieburger, one of the first font experiments from California based web, print and font designer Robbie Woodward at Woodward Works is a happy, care-free typeface with the legibility of a sans serif face and the light heartedness of a quirky hand drawn font (but not wretched like comic sans!). Supplied in three weights; light, regular and bold – it reminds me of a marriage between (apple) marker felt and (monotype) gill sans with a little bit of (adobe) Tekton mixed in, clean but still fun. Veggieburger would be great for summer time posters, cards, headlines, invitations, or grilled on a BBQ with some soy cheese. note – the lower case g, e, and a are particularly funky.

A fun one for a sunny monday . . Cactus Sandwich, from Michael at FontMesa is a pretty unique font, with letters made of of cactii. If that’s something you are looking for, than look no further – i could see this in a tex-mex restaurant logo and menu, maybe a sign in a cactus store or .. anything that needs a prickly pointy font.

Oh Yahhh? Kool Beans is another commercial logo-inspired freeware typeface from Adam Nerland at Insanitype! Font Design – I like the expressive swashes on some of the letters that make it more than just another free flowing bold type face. “This font is based on the Kool-Aid logo. It kind of reminds me of a retro surf font or something. I think it would work well for a logo. All the brackets and parenthesis as well as the tilde (the squiggley thing at the top-left of your keyboard) are Kool-Aid Man dingbats. Any other international characters produce a dingbat of yours truly. If you use it, please let me know!” Download Kool Beans TTF.
Anonymous Clippings is a fun ransom-note style typeface from Belleville, Illinois based Centric Studios. If you are looking to make something appear to be a ransom note, this is one of the best fonts for you to choose. The upper and lower case are different clippings, and there are other interesting dingbats and found things in the font. Download Anonymous Clippings TTF.
