Can’t get away from: skinny fonts

Can you believe it’s been 4 months since my last real post? When you blog again after a big absence it makes me wonder what the protocol is, do I just dive back in or do I explain myself? I might just dive back in if that’s OK? I’ll save the explanation for another post.

I’m not going to call skinny fonts my current obsession but I am seeing them everywhere and I mean everywhere. Is it just me or have you noticed too? I had originally thought they were reserved for travel sites and quotes but when they started turning up on girls pyjamas at Target, the bus shelter advertising company’s van and inside the lift at Hotel Hotel then I think the reach is greater than I thought. To be honest I like the look of skinny fonts but I have never successfully made use of them.

I’ve put together this selection and hope it inspires me.
