BLOG – GIFT DAY 314 – a month of inspiration :: design love

10 Nov

Today, in my month-long nod to inspiration, I share design. And fonts.
Because I love fonts.

As I sat down to write tonight I stopped and wondered. Why do I love fonts so much…. and really, what is the root of this inspiration thing anyway? I know it when I feel it (like finding a fabulous new font!) but I can’t quite describe it.

So I looked it up.

After reading the definition of “Inspiration” I felt an overwhelming “duh” coming on. Here’s the exact definition for you to ponder:


1. the process of being mentally stimulated to do or feel something, esp. to do something creative.

2. the drawing in of breath; inhalation.

Inspiration lights us up, somewhere in the heart and the brain. Scientists have now actually pinpointed a specific area of the brain “lights up” when the Aha moment arrives.

Or, when I find a new font. So tonight I share a little inspiration for your holiday font needs. Thanks to Lia Griffith and her favorite free script fonts for the holidays.

If that’s not lighting up a lobe in your brain, check out 100 Great Resources for Design Inspiration.

Better yet, just ask yourself: what inspires me? What does it feel like when I am totally and completely inspired?

While you think about that one I’ll be salivating over Alex Brush, Marcelle Script and Maratre.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore {playmore!}

{what inspires your aha moments?}
