Q:Hi kind sir, may I ask what fonts do you use? Or recommend some? Thank you sir.
Hello! Of course anon. Take a look here! Set 2 will be posted next week by the way. :-)
Process: Prodigious Life
I just want to share the process of how I made the header of my blog. First of all, if you’re going to design your own header as well, you need to have a direct idea of what you actually want. If nothing gets into your mind, searching off for different designs might help you, at least. Well, that’s how I got mine. In case you want to know what sites I visit to be inspired, here they are:
- From Up North - Graphic Design
- Abduzeedo - Graphic Design / Articles
- Inspiration Feed - Articles
- Behance - Illustration / Typography
As you can see, it’s not that good. I seriously think that I have lost the ability to draw well ever since I stopped doing so when I was 1st year HS! :-( So here’s a tip. If you don’t want to lose your skill/talent, just keep on honing/using them and never miss a day! :-)
The lineart was made in Illustrator while the elements surrounding the typography were made in Photoshop. Here, you will see the flow of how I edited the whole design from the beginning.
Final design and look:
It All Ends Here
This movie amazed me for its great visuals. Although I haven’t seen all of the Harry Potter movies, I still think it has a deep sense of story. A reason why I should watch them someday. Anyway, I hope guys like it!
Upon searching for some references, I found an inspirational quote:

Free-zing Fresh Fonts 1!
Since a lot of people are asking my favorite typefaces, I’ve decided to post some. And I will post more once or twice a month. By the way, these fonts are free so hooray for that! :-) Just be a great ‘googler’ for you to find them all. However, you will not be able to download the whole font-family in some fonts like Museo. But still, you can have its 300 and 500 weights. Hope you guys like them!
