Freelancers are those who work from their own comfort zone: be it home or a public café, they can work from any space of their choice. Freelancing, therefore, comes with many advantages, such as flexibility of working space and environment, flexibility of time, and so on. However, many responsibilities come with your decision to freelance.

The world of typography can be daunting, to say the least. For a few dollars, you can download 10,000+ fonts in just a few minutes and tens of thousands are available for free if you are willing to sort through them all. Not only are there a plethora of font famillies but there are also the font styles within each family. So, really, the question isn’t whether or not you can get a specific font – it’s where to begin!
Knowing what fonts should be used where and which ones should be avoided in certain situations will help narrow your search. Then you can further tone down your search by defining the look you are trying to create. Some font styles can add a dimension of femininity, others can add to a grunge design, and still others can create a more corporate look. Even so, the same font can be used to create different looks, which is why it can sometimes be best to keep an open mind when choosing a font to create a certain look.
