Font Frenzy: Brittney Murphy

July 18, 2012

Today, I’m bringing to you a collection of fonts by creator Brittney Murphy. I like many of her fonts, which have real “curb appeal.” One of my current favorites is Simply Glamorous, which makes a good substitute for Scriptina. Here’s a small sample to give you a taste:

 

I’ll give you a tip: sometimes on really skinny fonts, the text tends to be too light against the card’s background. If that’s the case, and there’s no BOLD option, then just duplicate the text layer a couple of times, which will darken it up. Of course, make sure your text is where you want it first, or once you have your text layers duplicated to the darkness you want, merge those layers into one layer.

All Brittney Murphy’s fonts are OK for commercial use with a $5 donation per font. That’s a real bargain!

You can find a lot of her fonts listed on DaFont or at her website.

    Thanks for sharing, Corrie. I really love her style and $5 for commercial use is a good deal.

    Great find Corrie, thanks for sharing! Here is another tip for the same ‘too thin’ text. In Photoshop, go to blending options for that layer and click on stroke. Make the Stroke the same color as your text and size 1 it turns your text to ‘bold’ quickly and easily.

    I LOVE Brittney’s fonts! Huge fan. Thanks for sharing her – and while I usually use the “bold” tip from Doreen, I like yours too – I learn something new here almost every day!
