Font: Metropolis

Metropolis is a really cool typeface created by Josip Kelava from Melbourne, Australia. Josip states that he used a two-line technique inspired by the industrial movement of the 1920’s. I highly recommend using it for a title or brand name because it can help make an impression and it just looks really good if you use it for big-sized text. Click the picture above to download.

Font: 47

Definitely one of the cooler fonts I’ve seen. It’s made by a member from dribbble (three b’s), so you know it’s high quality.

Note: OTF is a newer format than TTF but it is partially based off the TTF format. I’d go with OTF just because it’s newer and supports more features. The average user can use either one because programs like Word, Powerpoint and Photoshop support both. In reality, this font is REALLY hard to use because it’s very…different than normal fonts but it’s still cool to mess around with.

Junction was the first font from the League of Moveable Type and they constantly try to expand it’s library of foreign characters, so that everyone can use it. The font looks really nice and they have a few weights in the zip package. To download, click the button below. There’s a slideshow above for some examples. Unzip the package, double click the font file in the folder, and click install (or you can right click the file and click ‘install’).

How To Use The Fonts On Linxspire

Some of you may see that I occasionally post links and downloads of different fonts. These fonts will make any presentation or even a word document look great. I know it’s hard to use them if you don’t deal with zip files often. Here’s the instructions for using the fonts so you don’t get confused.

1:Download the font
2: Go to here (for 32-bit) or here (64 bit)
3:Once you have winrar (used for extraction), then you just go to the zip file with the font, right click, and press “extract here” or “extract to location” depending on your preference.
4: Once you get the actual folder, go in the folder, right click the font file, and press “Install”. It’ll ask for administrator permissions.
5: You’re good to go! Just go into powerpoint or word, look through the font list, select the font you just installed, and voila!

Found this great font from the League of Moveable Type. Tyler Finck contributed this font and I’d say it looks fantastic. If you want to use it, just click the picture to download. Extract it using Winrar or 7zip and add it to the fonts folder in control panel or right click the font you want to use and click install (which adds it to your font folder).
