I’d like to present to you my personal project for all designers and typography lovers: typespiration.com.
Typespiration.com is a place where you’ll be able to find inspirational web font combinations along with ready-to-use CSS codes, color schemes and font families.
I came up with an idea for this simple website a while ago. If you read my blog regularly you’ve already seen my previous post “Start The Visual Design Process By Defining The Typography First,” where I explain why I believe that typography is the foundation of any great design.
Who is this website for?
First of all, typespiration.com is not for everyone.
If you’re a designer, this might be a great source of inspiration for your own projects. Some typographical ideas might be the foundation for your entire web design. You can quickly find the fonts that were used in the particular examples, download them and incorporate them into your design project.
If you’re a developer and design is not your best skill, you may find some ready-to-use beautiful typography examples. Simply copy the CSS code and use the suggested colors as a base color scheme. Now you can focus on your development while having a good-looking design theme.
How to use it?
The website is very simple and it’s still in its beta phase. Also, there are not that many typography styles added yet but you can still browse the current ones by going here: typespiration.com.
Choose the style you like and you’ll see the following screen:
- This is a full-width demo.
- Click to see full-screen demo.
- You can quickly copy the entire CSS code of this example by clicking “copy to clipboard.”
- Fonts used in this style. Click on the font to go to the source where you can download it.
- Color scheme of this style.
Are you a designer? Join in!
If you’re a designer, you can join in and share your own typographical ideas. Fill out the “request invite” form and wait for approval. I’ll get back to you with a login/pass to your account within 7 days.
Once you submit your first style, it’ll appear on the home page. You, as a designer, will be listed in the “About” page and your profile (with a link to your Twitter and website) will be listed under each of your published font combinations.
My goal is to create a community of designers who want to share their ideas with others. Being listed on typespiration.com might help you get noticed and build relationships with other designers.
The biggest shifts in my life and career happened after Brian Gardner found some of my projects on one of the CSS galleries. Don’t miss your chance!
I’m planning to keep that website very simple and easy to use.
Once there will be more styles added, you may expect some extra “search” functionalities that will help you find the right font combination.
Also, I’m planning to have some exclusive bonuses for all registered designers. It’ll be worth it to be a part of this project!
