Retro Glamping Font Pack
Curated by Samantha Warren
Tell us a little about why you selected this theme.
This was inspired by a recent trip to Yosemite, where we stayed in a vintage cabin outfitted with mid-century charm. When driving into the Sierra National Forest the first thing you smell is the dry sharp aroma of the evergreen trees. If we could deliver to you scratch and sniff fonts, these would smell like burnt marshmallows, campfire smoke, slightly mildewy canvas, cracked leather, a dusty sweaty hiker, and the sequoia trees of Yosemite National Park.
What is your process for selecting typefaces?
I like to collect inspiration before selecting a typeface, and that helps to influence the style and feeling that I am going for.
What is your advice for designers working with fonts?
Go big. Seriously, people need to see whatever it is that you are typesetting. I have never understood the whole push to make type smaller. The bigger the better. If my poor tired eyes can’t read whatever you are typesetting then I don’t care how awesome your design is.
What is your advice for people new to typography?
Pay attention. The best way to understand how to get better is to notice when something is done really well and then dissect it for all of the details that make it great. Then, try it yourself. And try lots of things all the time. Also, go big.
