With only a month and a half left in 2011, it’s hard to believe another year is drawing to a close. If you’re a long time reader of WDL, you probably know that at the end of each year we publish a series of posts that highlight our favorite freebies and resources from that year. It’s an excellent way to show you what you might have missed, and to give the designers and creators some well deserved recognition.
AndrewG, February 20, 2012 It is obvious that Web designers do their best to make their sites better and more attractive to the visitors. When creating a site they must take into account every detail even the smallest and choosing a font you are going to use sometimes can bring you to a deadlock. We have previously showcased some great collections of free fonts and we are not going to stop there!
Story of handwritten fonts (or we can say only fonts) starts from very old ages, when people was just realizing the need of communication between one and other. People learned to convey their message by using signs and symbols , this process continued and entered different stages of development until the languages and letters were formed. People used to communicate through letters and telegrams, then with the advancement in technology we started using Emails with formal fonts, leaving handwritten letters behind.
Though there’s a broad variety of fonts available for download online, designers keep on tracing the fresh ones to enhance their design copy, a website, brochure, or even an advertisement in a brand new an’ awesome way. Still, the free stuff could not always boast of good quality – premium goodies always demand some kind of money investment. However, now it’s possible to find the appropriate font that’s free, clear, beautiful, and effective for design purposes.
Every now and then, we look around, select fresh free high-quality fonts and present them to you in a brief overview. The choice is enormous, so the time you need to find them is usually time you should be investing in your projects. We search for them and find them so that you don’t have to. In this selection, we’re pleased to present Homestead, Bree Serif, Levanderia, Valencia, Nomed Font, Carton and other quality fonts. Please note that while most fonts are available for commercial projects, some are for personal use only and are clearly marked as such in their descriptions. Also, please read the licensing agreements carefully before using the fonts; they may change from time to time.
It has been long since we posted our last free font collection (see: 20 Free Handwritten Fonts and 21 Incredible Fonts That Shouldn’t Be Free ), so we decided it’s a high time to do one more. The use of retro and vintage themes in design is still very popular, so it’s always good to have a big font collection. That’s why we handpicked 26 beautiful and stylish free retro fonts . We had a lot of fun doing the sample images, so if you decide to use some of them – please link back to DeMilked .
Every font has different kind of interpretation. In design how you use typography can effect the visual representation. Therefore it is always a good idea to have a font collection that you can use for any type of projects. Moreover, if you are designer on a tight budget you can always use free fonts in your project.
