Fonts Free for Designers

The Best Free Fonts for Designers

Favorite websites to obtain some high-quality typefaces that you can immediately start using on your projects: (BTW a lot of the free fonts on these sites can also be used for @font-face implementation as well)

Download Free Fonts from These Websites

  1. The League of Moveable Type
    This website has a great collection of free fonts including League Gothic, which has really become popular.
  2. Lost Type
    Lots of great fonts that are available for download. Although the fonts are free, I’m sure they would love your support so maybe donate a few dollars to them.
  3. Font Squirrel
    This is a great website with tons of high-quality fonts that are mostly @font-face compatible. You can also download their fonts as @font-face kits and they also have a @font-face generator. This is definitely a great resource.
  4. Impallari
    There are only a few fonts available for download on this site, but they are really nice. Lobster is a great font that has gained popularity and has even been included in the Google Font directory.
  5. FontFabric
    They have a great freebie section with lots of nice fonts to download.
  6. DaFont
    There are a lot of fonts on this site. Sure, not all of them are the best quality, but I usually go to this site if I’m looking for a font to use with a particular look or theme.

BTW, if you are a web designer and if you are looking for some free fonts to use for @font-face implementation, then see  Font-Squirrel or the Google Web Fonts project.

Now that you have visited these websites and have downloaded lots of free fonts, you need to learn how to use these fonts wisely. Here are some great articles that you should read to get you started on good web typography.
