Using Custom Fonts for Special Projects

One of the problems with using the fonts on our computers is that most are not very exciting from a creative point of view. If you are working on special project such as a photo book, why not research and use a custom font to add atmosphere or authenticity to the project? There are several websites around (like www.dafont.com) that provide custom fonts for free (for personal projects) . Log in and search for a font that matches the look and style of your book, video, publication or poster project. Take care not to choose anything too outrageous simply because, when used for things like body copy or captions, custom fonts might not be legible (as I have found out on a few occasions!). It’s also worth noting that if you use a non-standard font (many of the coolest-looking fonts are non-standard) you might find your computer substituting it for something a bit blander once the project is ready for print. If this is the case what I do is embed the font into the page – this might be into an image or just a blanks white canvas. Once flattened into a JPEG (the default file format for more photo book projects) it becomes part of the image as opposed to a separate text layer, and cannot be substituted.
Watch my Photoshop Custom Fonts video for more information.
