New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I'm a Graphic Design student at MassArt in my sophomore year and I've been going through my font collection and I find it to be very low quality. I have quite a lot of professional fonts and such, but I'm looking for some lesser known quality fonts to add to my collection. There were a few that I thought were nice such as Akkurat & Whitman, but can anyone suggest some others or at least point in the direction of a site that can help?
Also how to most of you build your font collections, since I know I would go broke purchasing all the fonts I would love to have. Do you "trade" with different designers? I know that's probably pretty frowned upon, but I'm just a poor art student so purchasing fonts for $180 is a bit out of my price range. It would be a choice between food and fonts at those prices.
Thanks in advance for any help you guys can give.
