preferiti

As we mentioned in this article, each month Your Inspiration Web offers you a new list of  “Editor’s favorites”, designed to promote fonts, articles, or resources found on the web.

November was a great month: in our favorites you’ll find a lot of material to consult. So, let’s get started right away!

Or those which, this month, struck our hearts.

The website

It is elegant in every detail and has excellent graphics: it would be impossible to not fall in love with this site. The logo is beautiful, the soft colors play together perfectly and the typeset is polished in every detail. And even though it is typically discouraged to use both a serif and a sans-serif font in the same project, the details highlighted in georgia contribute to the over-all perfect aesthetic result. Hats off, I’d say.

The blog

Disorganized, eccentric, fake-chaotic. And colorful. A true stoke of originality with a very particular font, and audacious and well-studied graphics.

Font: Ayosmonika

Even though we’ve already put it in the list of particular fonts, we’re going to catch the ball on the fly and suggest it to you once again. We’re talking about the font Ayosmonika, bubbly and creative to the right degree. Just  seeing its re-adaptation in the logo for camilarios.com is enough to understand its true aesthetic potential. Wow.
