Finding stylish fonts for your design projects can be a major time sink -- especially when you have to wade through seemingly endless pages of typefaces that don't suit the vision you have in your head.
Finding a free font can be even more of a hassle.
So what's a budget-strapped designer to do?
We've scoured the depths of the internet so you don't have to, coming up with 33 of the best free fonts you deserve to have on your computer. Here's how we sorted them:
Many of the free fonts featured here were developed by designers, for designers, so they understand the need for versatile, polished, free typefaces firsthand. Check out the fonts below and keep them in mind for your next design project.
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.
No list of old-fashioned fonts is complete without the old-English stylings of Canterbury. Emulate many of today's most famous newspaper logos with this traditional typeface.
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.
