65 Popular And Professional Free Fonts For Creative Typography 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!

Yet, some 54,000 students and alumni signed a petition to "Stop the new UC logo" within months. Haters took to Facebook and Twitter to mock the design. They debated whether the logo looked more like a toilet, a Swedish roll cake, or a nuclear bomb.
