Good Quotation Mark Fonts
13 December 2016
Sometimes when I’m designing a flyer or a website, I like to have a section for quotes or testimonials. Often when I’m adding these parts of the design I like to use large and interesting quotation marks as a graphic. Yet, every single time I want to do this I forget which typefaces had the nicest glyphs!
Wouldn’t it be great if there was some kind of list of typefaces that had nice quotation marks? I’m not talking about boring ones that are simply 2 straight lines, oh no. I want interesting ones. Something a little bit different!
I have tried to stick to fonts that are freely available as I know that most designers won’t want to spend ridiculous amounts of cash on this… Here’s the list so far (I will add to the list as I find more). Many of these are available from Google Web Fonts and so I can't link to them directly - just use the Google Fonts search box to find them!
|Perpetua Titling MT Bold||Spirax||Arizonia||Coustard|
|Alex Brush||IM Fell DW Pica SC||IM Fell English||IM Fell French Canon|
|Elephant||Engraver MT||Distant Galaxy||Dubtronic|
|Revalia||Ruge Boogie||Unifraktur Maguntia||Passion One Bold|
|Felix Titling||Garton Medium||Minotaur Phatte||SF Atarian|
|SF Groove Machine|
It can be tricky getting fonts from the Google site, here's what you need to do:
- Find the font(s) that you're after
- add the fonts 'to your collection'
- then look for the link in the top right corner that allows you to 'download your collection'.
If you know of any really good ones then do let me know!
