Any designer will know that choosing the right font in a platform like DaFont is one of the most crucial decisions to be made in a project. The right font has an ambitious task on its hands; it must be distinctive and recognisable initially, but also must create familiarity.

Typography also plays a big part in setting the tone for a project and the right font can offer a base to create a piece of distinctive typography of your own. A good font is not too definitive or restrictive; it suggests the groundworks for something that is yet to be created.
