I know that as a designer, most people will use their computer as an administrator. Well, I’ve learned many ways to install a font. These ways can be from using sophisticated lines in the command prompt to other stuff that will take one heck of a time. So, in order to avoid that, I’ve made an easy-to-use (or at least that’s what it was meant to be) tutorial that shows (with screenshots) exactly how to install a font without admin rights (though I don’t know why you’d want to do that). You’ll need one line of CMD (command prompt) code (I don’t know what it’s called), it’s gonna look like this:
Of course, Microsoft didn’t just program CMD to do this by default. You need a program called RegisterFont. Download it here:
It’s in a “.exe” file. Do not open the file…just kidding, nothing happens when you open the file, so don’t even bother. It’s not supposed to work like that. First, before we can install a font (with CMD), I’m going to show you where to put it.
Notice the address (circled badly in red) in CMD:
Put registerfont.exe there. That’s also where you’ll place all the fonts you want installed.
In CMD, type in:
registerfont add your-font-name.ttf
…Then click enter. Replace “your-font-name.ttf” with your font name and abbreviation. Your font will be in the same file as the RegisterFont.exe file.
Here I’ll post something designers look for (and create) all over the world: some pretty cool fonts. To heck with the introduction, I’ll get to the point.
This font combines a neat retro look and a nice futuristic touch. Found on Deviant Art.
Digital Ninja, created by the same author as above (Quiccs), hase the same sort of retro and futuristic look, but the differences are obvious.
Fatboy Slim is a pretty cool comic font. I found this on random searches. This is a super awesome comic font, and looks pretty good.
That’s it for this post, but in my searching, if I’ve learned something, it’s: there’s always something better!
I know we all have been wandering the mighty web in search of the worlds “best” fonts. I have come to a stop, finding the fonts that should be regarded as the works of art that no man (no matter how noble of a designer thy art) can speak against. I have not presented download links for some most are commercial, but the images take you to the place where I got the image. You may search them up online if you want (*HINT* most are on MyFonts.com).
1. I know this is just a version of Gill Sans, but I think this is the best one in the pack. This is worth the money, buy it!
2. GoodDog is one of the rare fonts that come at this breakthrough quality. It is available for free @ Fontsquirrel.
3. Grilled Chese is a great font. It’s one of the best comic fonts (apart from GoodDog).
4. It’s a shame if you don’t know this one (unless you’re new to this stuff), but Lucida Grande has made it into the use of WordPress, Twitter, Facebook, and other major services.
5. When I first found that I could actually spell this font right in my stylesheets, I figured this was more than an imatation of Arial.
7. You should consider yourself lucky, you’re getting this very beautiful, light font for free!
Those are the seven fonts that I am sharing today. If you have an eye for one of the fonts in the demonstration image, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Don’t spam.
I’ve searched a lot, and I’d bet you have as well, for fonts that are beautiful. So, I’ve gathered up 10 of the fonts that I like best. I have a lot of guidelines, so don’t think these are random! Click on the image of the font and be whisked away to the download page. While this may be a small collection of fonts, it is one that provides fonts that are free and high-quality. (Because of reasons, I can not directly place a download link.
**Betlog does not have all symbols on, but it’s uniqueness sets it apart from the millions of square fonts, which is the main reason for it being here.
