There are certain characteristics that take something from ordinary to awesome. When it comes to fonts, this could be the details, such as: decorative designs, elegant strokes, or extra hand-drawn doodles. While you can’t use them as normal text, they’ll look great on- or offline.

Tribal fonts for example, can be used for invitations, logos, posters, or book covers. Their unique, often geometric characters will work wonders on branding projects as well, like apparel, business cards, social media posts, website headlines, and more.
