Every now and again we take a look around, select “fresh” high-quality free fonts and present them to you in a brief overview. The choice is enormous, so the time you need to find them is usually the time you should be investing in your current projects. We search for them and we find them, so you don’t have to.
This month we can present you a dozen of them. It’s not quite clear if one is legally allowed to use MyriadPro (Bold, Semibold), Helvetica (Bold) and Humanist Gill 521 (Bold), which are also presented below. Please read the license agreement carefully – it can change from time to time.

The Microsoft HD DVD Interactivity Jumpstart Package15 contains software and utilities to simulate, test and debug HD DVD applications. Ascender16 has licensed a set of OpenType (.TTF) fonts to Microsoft which are included in this package for developers to use and distribute on HD DVD discs.
The eight fonts were all designed by Ascender’s Type Director, Steve Matteson, for on-screen viewing and to showcase the advanced typographic features of OpenType.
