Friday Faves - Pompadour Numerals

Today's Font Friday is Pompadour Numerals from Lost Type Co-Op. I know I've featured these numbers before on Friday Faves and in one of my 2012 calendars but I love them so much I thought it was worth doing again. Also, did you see this packaging on pinterest? I think it uses these numbers so well. Anyway, above is a little sample of how I would use the numbers as a kind of showcase. The text at the bottom is Deming, also from Lost Type. 

For more font-y goodness, follow #FontFriday on twitter. You can follow me there too.

Above is how I would the font with a photo. The photo is one I shot and edited with my iphone of a building in downtown LA. I added a drop shadow to the numbers to help them pop off the photo a little bit. If you want the numbers to look like they are depressed into the photo, apply an inner shadow.

Did you hear that Spoonflower is now offering gift wrap? So exciting!!!! What design would you put on your Christmas wrapping paper? Speaking of Christmas, I have a new Christmas pin board in addition to my Holiday Crafting pin board. Happy Friday everybody!!!
