Last Chance for a Free CCE Ticket!

The free ticket giveaway on design*sponge ends tomorrow at 8AM for the Conference of Creative Entrepreneurs, so if you want a chance to win, act quickly!  The rules are at the bottom of my latest “biz ladies” article, titled “Maintain Confidence in a Competitive Market,” which is all about keeping it together as a creative professional when everyone else in the world seems younger, skinnier and more talented than you.

If you’d like to remove the element of chance altogether, you can get your ticket at the CCE site, which has day passes and full weekend passes available for extremely reasonable prices.

More Free Fonts (Handwriting)

Ever need a handwritten font that doesn’t look like a cheesy cousin to comic sans?  TripWire magazine has come to the rescue, curating a page of over 45 free handwritten fonts that are actually good.  Be careful what you use these for, though.  Each one has its own license, and not all of them are okay for commercial use.

Ever wanted a font that looks like your handwriting?  One that gives you the speed of typing with the thoughtful look of longhand?  You can have that free too, courtesy of fontcapture.com.  Just print out the template, fill it in by hand, then scan and upload it back to the site.  Voila!  Your handwriting is now a downloadable font.  Grandma will never know the difference.
