Free Fonts For Designers

Last updated on February 2nd, 2021

Fonts play a vital role in bringing any design to life, be it web design, logo design or a business card. Each design demands for an appropriate font for it to be effective. A font can vary in design and change the entire tone of your design. Some fonts provide a stylish and artistic look, while some fonts are flamboyant. Some standard fonts and their variations are ideal for corporate styles while some are designed to be eye-catching. At the same time, you would find many free fonts that are simple and elegant and fulfill their purpose of blending in with the design without stealing the light from the focal element.

This list of 100 free fonts has been compiled keeping in mind the various effects a font brings to the table.

Fonts can be categorized based on their basic structural design. These categories also considered as themes help designers make an informed decision about the effect a font would add.

  • Sans-Serif: Sans serif is one of the most simple and easily readable font categories. It is most suited for short text settings such as web content, credits or captions.
  • Serif: Serif is an entirely neutral font design family. The text is not too fancy or alarming and hence is repeatedly used for long texts such as in magazines or newspapers.
  • Display: Display fonts are great for bringing attention to titles and highlighting images making them a popular choice for any graphic designer.
  • Rounded: These fonts have a rounded shape distinguishing them from the others while remaining neutral in design.
  • Graffiti: The fonts that fall in this category are inspired by hip-hop culture and street art making them great for specific niche requirements.
  • Vintage: Inspired by the retro themes, Vintage fonts can be used in posters both print and digital.
  • Script Calligraphy: Script Calligraphy is one of the most popular typeface categories which are ideal for poetry, invitations and letters.
  • Unusual: Certain aesthetic and unique font styles cannot be categorized in the conventional font categories. These are the unusual fonts and are often preferred to create a logo since they stand out from the rest.
