21st Annual Fonts Festival : fonts, lettering and typography surf #1

by Fred Showker

21st Annual Fall Fonts Festival Here we go kicking off the twenty-first annual fonts festival. Kind of hard to believe we started this in 1994! Where were you in 1994? My favorite part of the annual fonts fest is just searching for cool entries and resources to share with the DT&G readers! I'm planning on continuing the process in my 60-Second Windows blog.

      Scroll through Carl Frederik's (aka. 'Frisso') portfolio and you'll see what I'm talking about. Amazingly his work looks truly American, but he's a a Norwegian graphic designer living in Copenhagen, Denmark!
