font snob fave: hand drawn type by maddy nye
we are self-described font snobs at WTD, meaning we're really really nerdy about good fonts and lifelong enemies of comic sans (shudder). ever since i was a little kid, i LOVED FONTS. i remember getting so excited every time we'd upgrade our computer software because that meant there would be a few new fonts included in whatever ancient word processing program came with it. this was the 90's- so the options were pretty slim- but for me, new font releases were on par with new NSYNC CD releases, and that is a pretty incredible statement.
