A Showcase of Beautiful, Free Fonts

Published: Jun 06, 2013

Very few things can have such a strong impact on the appearance, tone and style of a design as the typeface used. Just picture a newspaper article written in (shudder) comic sans, and you’ll see that it’s not just the words we use, it’s the style and appearance of the typeface too that affects the message.

When it comes to typography, the font you choose can make or break your design. And fortunately for us, there are hundreds and thousands of free fonts out there, created by incredibly talented designers. To help show you some options that you can use for your next design project, we’ve brought together a showcase of some fresh, beautifully designed fonts that are all available for free. Please do check the licensing for some of these fonts, however – to confirm that you can use them for commercial projects.

And if you’ve come across any beautiful, well designed fonts that you think should be included – we’d love to hear about them in the comments.

    I like “Rough Linen” for bold, daring content (think artists/bands/motorcross) http://www.dafont.com/rough-linen.font
