Over here at Print Express, we see a huge amount of design work. And one thing that I’ve come to realise is that the typography can make or break a design. Whether it’s a poster, the packaging for a product, a logo or a website, the typography is the aspect that’s most noticeable. And while things like the size, kerning or whether you choose a serif or sans-serif typeface all matter, one thing that stands out more than any other is the typeface itself. It’s a big challenge – there are so many different font options, from big and brash and bold to refined, elegant and clean (and pretty much everything in between). The font can change both the design and the usability, and so getting it right is crucial.
Luckily, there are an overwhelming number of free fonts out there. Thousands of beautiful designs that might just suit your project – and I wanted to share some of my favourite discoveries. These are all creative, useful and interesting free fonts that have generously been given away by their designer. Before using them, please do check the license agreement as some may only be useable for non-commercial projects. And of course, if you know of any other free typefaces that you think deserve to be included in this post, I’d love to hear about them in the comments at the end.
So there you have it – a roundup of my favourite free font discoveries. Hopefully you’ve found some free typefaces amongst these that might work for your project. Remember – while some of these can be used for commercial projects (at the time of writing), not all of them are, so please do check the license agreement before using them. As always, if you know of any other interesting, creative and exciting free fonts that you think we should include in our roundup, let us know in the comments below.
