Web Designer Font Favorite - Mangosteen
A serif font from Dafont.com, Download Mangosteen
Sort of gives you the feel of the classic Copperplate Gothic, but provides a higher, thinner rendition. A beautiful free font that can stand on it own typographically. This is a nice gem of a font - take a look on how we used it below.

Here is How We Made this Graphic
|It's not hard to make this graphic look pretty cool.
- We picked a vibrant orange, #ff6600, being mangosteen and all.
- We didn't kern this font at all, it is nicely uniformly spaced.
- Duplicated the main text. Converted the Object to a Path (this transforms it into a vector image rather than a text object)
- Changed to #fff white.
- Dynamic Offset allows you to grow the text image.
- Duplicated the main text and changed color to #000, black and toggled opacity to 8.8% almost transparent really.
- Clicked twice on the now gray text to slant the text left to right and maneuvered to create the shadow.
