Happy 4th! My Favorite (Free!) Fonts for Independence Day

Happy 4th of July! I hope everyone is enjoying a day off today with friends and family, or at least a relaxing evening for those who are working. Before I run off to bathe in sunshine and stuff my face with food all day, here are a few of my favorite patriotic-graphics-worthy fonts! And they’re all free!

1) Premium Pixels – This site is an awesome and free (of course!!) resource for designers, especially ones who aren’t too good at creating icons. It has tons of vector icon sets, plus downloadable Photoshop files of MacBook Pros, iPhone mockups, patterns, iPhone chat bubbles…you name it!

2) James T. Edmondson. – Phenomenal type designer. Have you seen his font Lavanderia floating around just about everywhere? You probably have, even if you haven’t noticed it because you didn’t know it was Lavanderia. Follow him on Twitter and Instagram, too! @jamestedmondson

3) Felicity Fenton. – Right now, Felicity Fenton is featuring an ongoing project of taking mundane, everyday quotes and adding graphic elements to them to see if they’ll have more significance. They’re beautiful, witty, and brilliant!
