Want to get free fonts?

Jon Brown

Want to get into graphic design? Font choice will make or break a poster/logo/brand. But if you're designing for free or with a limited budget you don't want to be spending huge amounts of money on expensive fonts. Thankfully there are tons of people making great fonts for free, and there's always new ones being released.

Here are the top 3 places to find free fonts:

1. Font Squirrel

As well as having a great name, Font Squirrel does a really good of providing high quality fonts, 100% free for commercial use.

Their "Hot" list will give point you straight to the most popular fonts.

2. Dafont

I've been using Dafont since I was a kid. They have thousands of free fonts ranging from Comic to Calligraphy. You sometimes have to sift through a lot of rubbish but there's some real gems in there. The "Top" list is a good place to start.

3. Abduzeedo

Fabio Sasso is a great designer. Every week he publishes his "Fresh Fonts Friday" on his website Abduzeedo. Here he selects a few of the best free fonts going. I've found many of my favourite fonts through FFF. Thanks Fabio.
