TGIFF! Type friend Kerry of Super Swoon coined the term 'Thank God It's Font Friday' and I must admit that each Friday I very much agree with that statement. As a lover of typography I look forward to discovering new favorites each week. On this royal day, there are a few things to be excited about, other than the great fonts that we will be sharing. First, a huge congrats is in store to our very own Alexandra from The Aerialist Press who will be graduating from Berkeley Law School soon. Today she shared the news and pictures of the gorgeous graduation announcements that she personally designed. Aren't these lovely?

What a true font-lover! She included nine different ones. The color scheme is so elegant and simple, which works perfectly with all the fonts. I definitely spy a few favorites that we have shared in our Friday posts. Big hugs to you Alexandra from me and all your Font Friday friends!
In other big news, today we welcome two new designers into our group. Alison of Alison Owen Design will now be joining us, as will Laurel of Go Against the Grain. Both Alison and Laurel have awesome first picks so be sure to check out their posts.
And finally we can announce the winner of our font badge contest. At first it was a tie between Kerry's TGIFF design and Alexandra's preppy logo but the tie was finally broken and Kerry won!
The winning design! I'll be putting this up on my blog soon.
And finally we get to my font pick for the day. I decided to highlight a font that is a part of one of the most recognizable logos in the wedding and fashion industry...Anthropologie.
As women, and lovers of all things beautiful, we know this logo all to well. We've seen it a million times and I know that for me, that font is pretty ingrained in my memory. But what font is it exactly? I have done some research on the matter and have come up with a few possible contenders. My favorite is Bodoni Roman:
What do you think? Maybe this isn't quite the font that Anthropologie used but I think it's close and a great choice if you are wanting to replicate the famous logo in your own designs. The versions on MyFonts are reasonably priced but if you are looking for something cheaper you can always go with the free version. Filosofia Small Caps is also a possibility. Which font do you think Anthropologie used?
