As a designer if you think of the term “Free Fonts” you’ll probably imagine all kinds of garish decorative fonts worthy for use in nothing more than Microsoft Word, but there’s actually a range of high quality fonts by professional designers available free on the web. This post pulls together a mix of font styles that will suit a variety of projects, including serif, sans-serif, slab-serif and a couple of script fonts. Not only are they all free to download, but they can all be used commercially too.

  1. So glad to see that Lobster isn’t on this list – it seems to have become the go-to font for a lot of designers. It’s bloody everywhere…

  2. League Gothic has changed my life. I begin, like, every design with it now. I REALLY need to pick something else. But I love it. Funny, just wrote a post bemoaning the over use of Museo. Love it, too, but I see it way too often now. Thanks for sharing. I see one or two I need to check out. I would also add the free font Lavosier. I find it extremely workable.

  3. Thank you so much – I just figured out how to print on fabric but was at a loss for where to get fonts that were worthy of the process!

  4. Oh my goodness. Ostrich Sans is my all-time favorite block font! I’ve been using it everywhere lately. (It’s in my blog header at this very moment.) I can’t wait to check out your other recommendations!

  5. thank you so much for the font list! i love your website! i saw you in the wordpress bookazine, as well! i’m a fan of yours! keep up the great work!

  6. Love the fonts. Love Font Squirrel. Now, can we get a tutorial on the background happening in the font previews above. Maybe a quicky?

    Great site.

  7. Jup, I agree that most of these fonts needs to be in every designers arsenal. My favorite font that I am using for many projects is Quicksand. Don’t know why but I love how those fonts looks and my design is usually based on similar shapes
