    Lightbulb Best fonts for a children fashion catalog?

    Hi there,

    I am going to be working soon on the design for a couple of children fashion catalogs and was wondering if you could throw some suggestions on fonts. I want the catalogs to look modern and trendy and not overly cute. I would like to try try some cool handwritten fonts but I dont want the work to look too flowery. Any suggestions on fonts? Out of the top of my head I can think on fonts like Pluto or gotham rounded for san serif options.

    Thanks!

    For kids, I like: Bandoliers, Blueshift, Bosque, Cinnamon, Espresso, Gab, KG Always a Good Time, Lemon Squeezy, Lunchbox, Pinto, Ranger, Ride my Bike, Sparhawk, Wintermelon, Wobbly Bob, and YellaBelly. I do lots of kid designs, and those are some of my favorites.

    you can always combine handwritten titles & more serious body text!
    for the titles there are so many great choices these days (since handwritten fonts are still hot) - search a bit through myfonts.com - you can search tags to (so look up everything tagged "kids", "children's", "hand drawn", "hand written", etc...
    body text can be either some nice serif of rounded sans (like gotham rounded, mikado, etc)...

    Thank you

    That is exactly what I was thinking. A combination of o hand drawn fonts for the titles + something a bit more serious but still approachable like gotham rounded for the rest of the text.

    Try using a roughish hand script (like Bombshell) coupled with a very clean, wide-eyed font (like Pluto), seems appropriate for a catalogue - seems to me that the readers will be parents rather than kids, so you can give it that schoolish look without making it too elementary.

    I'm always a big fan of handwriting or handmade fonts. I hope the list will help:

    I really like the mix of cute handwriting with hand drawn ornaments in the children books or at least something really catching my eyes

    Hi, I like to use a combination of different font, some more serious and some more fun and spunky :)
    I don't use handmade typography really, if I do (for some lettering or big words) I do it myself pen to paper!

    But i do like fonts like Charlie, Mikado, Adelle and Dolly. All of those have a cute and modern feeling to them and can work great if used with illustrations :)

    rounded fonts!

    dont hesitate to even use comic sans, it was designed by a designer. any rounded fonts are great too, i love gotham rounded.

    I think Archer from (formerly) H&FJ is cute without being overly childlike. You should check it out.
