How to Use Fire Fonts with Care
Beware the amateur artist signal of using bold, fancy fonts everywhere, too much, and too many times.
The flame font is a great option the same way fire is a good thing in the Arctic tundra—it livens things up a little. It also screams for attention and adds a theatrical entrance to any title.
Now imagine setting fire to everything.
It is glaring, and too much fire font on the page will overload your readers’ eyes and send them screaming. Artistic fire is most helpful, powerful, and effective when it is contained and used sparingly—for only the main, iconic, center-of-attraction parts of your work.
Think: band names, movie titles, blog headers, album labels, T-shirt graphics, and you should be fine.
Sometimes it is the best option you can go for.
- The effect you get in the Keneel Messy Font is not going to work if you used something else.
- The Char Font will portray a daredevil personality more strikingly than some cold block font.
- A band poster might be better represented using the Flames Font or the Cheap Fire Font or the Phoenix Font than if you used another bubble text, again.
- Sometimes no other font but the Firestarter Font will have the right attitude for your motorbike logo or T-shirt print.
But let’s not overthink this. As artists, you gather your tools and you experiment, you create. You learn by trial and error. Playing with fire fonts is just one fun way to get your hands dirty.
Also. Where there is fire fonts, there is smoke fonts.
