From New York City to Rome, independent art, film and music intermingle each year, simmering in each other's juices. You can't have music without art, or film without music. Music without some sort of visual representation just isn't marketable to the masses. A fashion show without a background accompaniment of sound would be pompous (unless we're talking hyper-avante garde couture  like Junya Watanabe or Duckie Brown, in which a silent fashion show might be absurdly fitting). A movie without a relevant wardrobe and soundtrack would never make it to box offices. This deep connection between film, art, fashion and music is what shapes cultural movements. It creates mass trends and styles, and influences every aspect of our culture down to the most basic visual form of art: the font.
Have you ever stopped to capture a glimpse of the typefaces of words around you at the shopping mall, at your workplace or at a concert? I can guarantee you that you will find a multitude of text in your visual scope, dressed up in all sorts of silly fonts. From the water bottle on your desk to the concert flyer slipped under your windshield wiper, you are assaulted almost every moment with a barrage of fonts, styles and themes that represent artistic marketing trends of the moment. With several recommendations from ZoomZum , here are five fresh fonts of the moment, that you can use to spice up your website or holiday card  creation:
Inside each and every one of us, there is a potential graphic designer, drawing inspiration from our surroundings. We may not all work for independent art firms or graphic design studios, but this knowledge could come in handy when piecing together a web project or designing cards for our friends and family. With the visual stimuli you calculate on a daily basis, there should never be an excuse to have “font block." Use some of the exciting typeface recommendations above for a fresh, trend-worthy approach to font usage, and make your project dazzle.
