hi guys. good to meet all y'all today, even though most of the semester has already passed. here were a couple of the sites i mentioned earlier and one or two others tacked on for good measure:
http://www.losttype.com — a couple dozen quality typefaces, pay what you want.
http://www.fontsinuse.com — dissects design in the wild and reveals what typefaces were used.
http://www.typographyserved.com/ — pulls type-specific projects found on behance to highlight.
http://www.tendollarfonts.com/ — ten bucks. lots of type here that allow for experimentation.
good luck with the assignments this week. if y'all get stuck / frustrated / about to throw a fit, get at ali.r.malik (at) gmail (dot) com and i'll see if i can help out.
