A designer’s font collection is never complete, so when an unmissable bundle comes around it’s hard not to take up the offer to widen your choice of typefaces for your future design projects. The Fontastic Bundle was recently launched by The Hungry JPEG, it’s a massive collection of 45 premium fonts, discounted down to just $29.

Since the implementation of @font-face, web fonts have become a big deal in Web Design. It’s not so long ago that Web Designers were limited to 5 or so “web safe fonts”, but now the choice is vast. You can’t go using any font in your designs though, you have to make sure the typeface you’re using is licensed for web use. That’s why I figured you might be interested in this latest deal from Design Cuts. At 99% off this offer is unmissable as it stands, but if you’re a Web Designer, the free extended licensing and web fonts included might be right up your street.
