Random searching in Google brought me to this site: Smashing Magazine. Created by two German fellows (they live in Germany, anyway), who claim that, “Our aim is to inform our readers about the latest trends and techniques in web-development – clearly, precisely and regularly,” the magazine threatens to, and I quote, “SMASH YOU WITH THE INFORMATION THAT WILL MAKE YOUR LIFE EASIER. REALLY.” Well, forewarned is forearmed.
I browsed through the “INSPIRATION” category and found this post on “Beautiful Handwriting, Lettering, and Calligraphy.” You have to scroll a bit to get into the meat of it, but they have collected an amazing assortment of lettering styles and approaches.
There’s also a lot of great stuff in their “FONTS” category, if you are into that sort of thing. My guess is that, once you get an eyefull of the “Breathtaking Typographic Posters,” or the “60 Brilliant Typefaces for Corporate Design,” you will be.
Now go get smashed.
