I am currently studying a graphic design course and have recently purchased a i-mac and the Adobe creative suite. :thumbup:

My questions is does anybody know where i can download good free fonts from?

Ones that will be usable in In design etc... :o

Good font foundries will have fonts available in both PC & Mac friendly formats.
Always go for font quality over novelty - some of my fave free fonts have come from:

Quality stuff

Haven't done this yet ... but perhaps someone can answer this ... how do you install fonts on a Mac ?

I second snax's dafont.com link. That's the only place I DL fonts from...heaps there!


And to install them, simply double click the font file. It will open up a little font preview window, then you click "Install Font"

Easy as that :)
