65 Popular And Professional Free Fonts For Creative Typography

Posted in Fonts, Freebies • Posted on 42 Comments

Some time ago I created article – 52 Really High Quality Free Fonts For Modern And Cool Design, which turned out to be very popular. But I felt like I haven’t featured even a half of beautiful, professional free fonts, so I decided to continue with another article. This time I found 65 high quality fonts, where many of them are very good for font creation, creative graphic typographic works, unique web design titles and so on. But hey – we are here all becoming/experienced designers, I don’t need to tell you where to use those fonts, I am here to find that stuff for you!
Note – before using these fonts for commercial projects, check out creator copyrights (on their homepages, not asking me – I am just collector), because all of these fonts are free for personal use, but not all for commercial usage.

    Nice List.

    I did use Alexandria for my website and it was nice but only so long as I was making the design in Photoshop. I made @font-face and it looks terrible in the internet, so grainy edges can somebody tell me how I can fix that?

      That grainy effect is because the internet does not have the anti-aliasing that photoshop and programs like that have. If you want that effect to be gone, either take it out of the mix by making an image with that text or make it less noticeable by simply making the font size smaller.
