25. Modeno

The Modeno font is consistent with the thin designs that many contemporary artists have gravitated to over the last few years. But don't mistake this one for just any new-wave typeface -- its lanky quality is hard to come by in today's sans-serif options.

Rezland is just plain cool. It almost doesn't have time for you ... that's just how cool this font choice is.


27. Polya

Polya is perhaps the most interesting font we could find. The webbing of each letter makes for a truly mesmerizing logo.

Similar to Horizon, ITC Bauhaus has a rounded, retro look that comes in numerous thicknesses. Thicker versions look like the header of an old playbill, while thinner styles give off a jazzy vibe.

We hope you find these fonts helpful -- but because they are offered by other parties on their sites, we can't make any guarantees or promises about them (like that they will be available or free to use).

Also, we want to mention that the designers who offer these fonts might have rules about how you can or can't use them, so there might be limitations that are applicable to use of the font.
