UrbanFonts.com Creates Community for Font Fanatics

URL:  http://www.urbanfonts.com

UrbanFonts.Com is a new Web 2.0 powered site offering a wide range of both utilitarian and winsome typefaces and dingbats for a variety of web-based and desktop tasks. The site offers a user forum and social bookmarking as well as a series of informative articles covering all aspects of Internet typography.

To be truly creative, Web sites or publications need a font selection to match their design. Yet, finding just the right font on a PC or Mac can sometimes be difficult. Now UrbanFonts.com (www.urbanfonts.com) provides a ready source for paid and free fonts and dingbats for users of either both Macs and Windows PCs. And the special touches, like articles, a blog and a message board, mean users don't have to just stop by and stock up on fonts. Rather, users can learn about and can participate in an online community dedicated to the art and craft of typography.

“Of course fonts may not be as exciting or as sexy as the latest in Flash technology, but they can be just as vital to the success of your web design, if not more so,” said a company spokesperson. “Without the right fonts in place, even the best looking web site can be difficult to navigate and difficult for customers to use.”

Urbanfonts.com houses thousands of fonts and dingbats in a variety of categories, grouped by use, alphabetically, by author and by popularity. There's even a list of UrbanFonts.com favorites. Fonts can be displayed with custom colors and custom text to ensure the font would be suitable in a project before downloading and installing it. Some are serif fonts, some are fun and stylish and still others are in the style of foreign languages. All contribute to implementing successful design strategies. The dingbat section (http://www.urbanfonts.com/free-dingbats.htm) contains symbols to fit a wide variety of needs, from transportation and flowers to smilies and sports.

UrbanFonts.com contains a series of Web 2.0 enhancements making the site more than just a font catalog. The articles section contains a whole series of ideas for the best way to deploy fonts in a design, including the ideal number to use and the best way to choose a correct font. The blog links to current topics on typography around the web. And the discussion forum lets readers ask questions and share their experiences using and designing fonts. All pages can be bookmarked using popular social bookmarking services.

Reinvigorate design and document design and visit UrbanFonts.com today.
