7 Elegant Fonts You Simply Must Use

There’s no denying that typography is an essential part of good design. More than the graphical elements like layout, texture, and pattern, typography is essential because it carries the message and transforms an otherwise abstract string of words into something visually tangible. When you have the right font, you send the right message.

Now and then there might be an occasion that calls for elegant script fonts. Perhaps a Serif font will be elegant enough, too. Whichever way, here are several typefaces that may suit your design needs.

Best Free Adobe PDF Reader Alternatives

Adobe Reader and PDFs seem to go together like hand-and-glove. After all, while PDF is an international standard now, it was Adobe that brewed the Portable Document Format in their research labs all those years ago. Hardly surprising, then, that so many of us stick with Adobe Reader to view our PDF documents. We may get annoyed at its niggles, but we never seem to get round to checking out the alternatives. That’s a pity, because alternatives there are a-plenty. And those other PDF readers come with a dose of useful functionality attached – enough to make you wonder why you stuck with Adobe Reader for so long. Even better – many of them are free; so no excuse to avoid reading on, and checking out the grass on the other side of the fence.
