Free Fonts for Every Project
As a creative designer, you understand exactly how important it is to use the right font for every project. The style of the words on the page influences the overall tone of the content, draws the eye to particular points, and affects readability.
But with so many free downloadable fonts available on the web, it’s getting more and more difficult to find the fonts that can actually elevate your work.
And that’s why we’ve put together our collection of the best free fonts available. You can download each one of these fonts free to use in your projects. There are even free fonts for commercial use. And to help you find exactly what you’re looking for, we’ve broken it down into a few categories.
Free Sans Serif Fonts
Sans Serif fonts are fonts that don’t have serifs (the small lines often seen at the ends of most letters.) They’re popular for their modern, simple, and minimalist style. Because of this styling, you’ll often see sans serif fonts used in short blocks of text. They’re also usually the default font style in many apps and websites.

Free Serif Fonts
Serif fonts include a small stroke (known as a serif) at the end of the lines in most letters. Serif fonts have a classic look to them, and the serifs are also known to aid in the readability of text. Because of this, serif fonts are popular fonts for long blocks of text like books, newspapers, and magazine articles.
If you’re searching for free serif fonts, check out popular fonts like NIGHTMARE PILLS and Playfair Display.
Free Brush Fonts
Brush fonts include artistic details meant to make them appear hand-painted. You can typically see lines that make each individual letter look as though someone took the time to handcraft the words rather than type them. These artistic details make brush fonts a popular choice for greeting cards, posters, and rustic themed websites.

Free Handwriting Fonts
Handwritten notes are indisputably more intimate than typed letters, and that’s exactly the feeling that free handwriting fonts bring to a project. Handwriting fonts imitate real handwriting, making them appear authentic, intimate, and classic. These fonts are available in many different styles, from whimsical to elegant and everything in-between.
