FONT FRIDAY :: Skunkling

Featured Font : Skunkling

Today's Font Friday is extra awesome, if I do say so myself.  Our featured font is called Skunkling and not only do you get a chance to WIN the font for FREE, there are also free printables you can download from each of the #fontfriday girls featuring this darling font.

There are going to be 3 winners, and here's what you have to do:

1. Visit Design Editor, the host of our contest.

2. Comment on her blog post letting us know HOW you'd use Skunkling.

3. Tweet the following: "Just entered a #fontfriday #giveaway @DesignEditr, hosted by @jasonmarkjones, the creator of #skunkling and the @FontFriday crew"

But WAIT, there's MORE.....

I told you there were free downloads!  Make sure you visit each #FONTFRIDAY blog for a set of free printables!!!

I was channeling the upcoming holiday season when I made mine and decided to make some gift tags!  Simply trim around the dotted lines and punch a hole using a small hole punch at the top.  You can download the high resolution file HERE.

A bit about the font -

Skunkling was originally created by Jason Mark Jones for a Design-Sponge contest.  From the designer : "It was inspired by a real-life encounter between a spraying skunk and a defenseless designer. Skunkling is carefully designed to be playful and even awkward. Unique letter forms and ligatures allow the letters to fit snugly together. The two “weights” can be used individually or they have the unique capability to be overlaid to create a two-color font."

There is both a Inline and Fill version to the font, and together the set will only cost you $19 if you aren't one of the lucky winners!  It can be purchased here.

As you may have assumed I have a thing for fonts. They come in all shapes and sizes with elaborate swashes and elegant details. The right font can easily make or break a design. Every Friday, I’ll share some of my favorites and recent purchases here, hoping to inspire a typography addiction in everyone.
