    Can someone suggest me some fonts that are good for design and stuff? Right now, I'm doing Moonshell 2 Skin Making and I need some decent fonts.

    I like old-typewriter like fonts... there's heaps of different ones... "Mom's typewriter" springs to mind

    Sans-serif fonts: Helvetica (Neue), Swis721, SlimSansSerif, Frutiger, QuickType II, and TW Cen MT are a few I use. I'd suggest just browsing around for more.

    Serif fonts: IM French Canon, Optimus Princeps, Perpetua, Onyx (this font is very long and narrow), Edition (ditto). To be honest I'm not a big fan of serif fonts and most of the time I use the ones already installed on most computers.

    Pixel/Bitmap fonts: Silkscreen, nu (can't find this on google for some reason so I uploaded it for you), standard 07_55, Marke Eigenbau, Kroeger 05_33, Haxrcorp 4088.

    i won't suggest you a font because i select it based on the design that the font will be used on
    look at your design and find a font that will fit on it

    Deja vu Sans and Fonce Sans.

    Fonce Sans only provides a 'trial' version, though, which removes each capital vowel, but it's a fantastic font nevertheless (link).

    Arno Pro is kick ass.

    Also, Adobe PhotoShop comes with a shitload of amazing fonts. Check those out.

    Arial [​IMG].

    w/ modifications such as proportions or Bold/Black/etc of course. Most of my sig's below are made using it.

    How about one for buttons? Besides itty bitty pixel. I'm getting sick of it. Or maybe topic ads?

    Segio UI (default font in Vista) is a great font and Century Gothic might work.
