QuarkXPress color fonts

What do you think about the function of QuarkXPress color fonts?

I’ve seriously tried to dive into the potential uses of color fonts, and I just don’t get too far. They’re obviously useful for emojis :thinking: and I’ve seen some nice-looking, but gimmicky, color typeface fonts. The trouble is that I really have no particular use for pre-colored typography. I can’t think of any exceptions to me preferring to choose colors myself.

They might possibly be useful to amateurs making birthday party invitations, garage sale flyers, church bulletins and other things like that, but to use them professionally in anything but the rarest of situations, I just don’t see it. I’m unsure who Quark’s current user base is now, but if part of it is home hobbyists and amateurs, well, maybe it’s a useful feature for them.


Brushed fonts (watercolors) look nice. They have one color, however they can use semi-opacity. Nice effect:

Is it a brush stroke font first?

No, it is a font (OpenType).

Where can I find it?

Almost everywhere, where you can buy good fonts.

The font is called “Take Charge SVG” and I believe I bought it at Creative Market.

What do you think of it?

How to get it in typekit?

Maybe ask the Typekit guys? :wink:

Seriously, I’d never rent fonts. Too risky.
