Need Fonts?

When it comes to design and fonts, sometimes you know exactly what you want but you can't find it. Sometimes you don't know what you want and you need some inspiration. Whatever your case may be, let me give you some (hopefully) useful information.

Today I came accross "Better Fonts" a very user friendly website offering near to ten thousand fonts for free, some others for $ 4,99 and in what seems to be their sister site Fonts 500, they offer an option to download the top 500 more popular fonts -all of them- for just $ 4,99.

Now, their small print reads: "The fonts presented on this page are their authors' property, and are, to the best of our knowledge, either freeware, shareware, demo versions or public domain. If anyone knows otherwise please notify us. All fonts have been collected from around the web, and are maintained with all files intact" what means you may have a surprise here or there, but still looks like a good place to search for inspiration.

Last but not least, a nice detail: you can change the famous "Lorem Ipsum" for a text of your own to check out how each font applies to your needs.
