40+ Excellent Freefonts For Professional Design

Advertisement

The importance of typography in design can’t be overestimated. The accuracy, precision and balance of geometric forms can give letters the elegance and sharpness they deserve. Besides, elegant fonts can help to convey the message in a more convenient way. In fact, while there are many excellent professional fonts (we’ve presented some of them in our article 80 Beautiful Typefaces For Professional Design1) there are literally thousands of free low-quality fonts which you would never use for professional designs.

Quality costs. The price of “bulletproof” fonts usually reflects their quality and starts at 50$ per typeface. However, before purchasing a font you will probably use only once in your designs you might want to take a glance at outstanding free alternatives first.

Over the last year we’ve been observing typo-designers and their works; we’ve regularly collected high-quality fonts available for free download and free to use for personal or/and commercial projects. In this article we’d like to present an overview of over 40 excellent free fonts you might use for your professional designs in 2008. What is your favourite?

Please notice:

  • Some images are taken from Gerrit van Aaken’s Typography Essays2. Thank you, Gerrit.
  • We haven’t listed Arial, Georgia, Verdana, Trebuchet MS & Co. as well as Calibri, Cambria, Candara, Constantia and Corbel as they are delivered almost “automatically”.
  • You can visit the Free Fonts Section3 to find more free fonts. The category is regularly updated.
  • We’d like to thank to all typo-designers and foundries for releasing these fonts for free. We appreciate your work and your intentions.
  • Before using fonts please read the license agreements carefully — they can change from time to time.

Pigiarniq Inuktitut font12
Have you ever known about the existence of Nunavut? A small region in Canada with one of the lowest population rate of the world? Probably not. Only 0,01 people live there per km2, mostly Eskimo. The citizens of Nunabut speak four languages — French, English, Innuinaqtun and Inuktitut. Nothing spectacular so far, right?

Few years ago the government of the region has decided to design a new typeface to enable its 28.000 citizens to use all four languages in a uniform manner. The result is a beautiful, rich and professional sans-serif free font. The family includes a bold, heavy, italic, light and regular weights. Examples13.

Yanone Kaffeesatz40
This “coffee”-font is supposed to be used in headlines and brief text passages; it shouldn’t, however, be used for body copy. The numbers and currency signs are monospaced, which means that they have the same width. This is useful if you’d like to place them on a restaurant menu beneath each other in a table. The alternative and historic symbols as well as ligatures can be activated via the OpenType-option »optional ligatures«. Released under Creative Commons license. Examples41.

JustOldFashion45

Lido STF46
The typeface is suitable for all periodicals wishing to abandon inconspicuously the hideous system typefaces with their even more hideous accents and to change over to the contemporary level of graphic design. It is also most convenient for everyday work in text editors and office applications. It has a fairly large x-height of lower case letters, shortened serifs and simplified endings of rounded strokes. Lido STF examples47. For professional use you need a valid license which means purchasing the font.

Screenshot48

Cardo49
Cardo is a large Unicode font specifically designed for the needs of classicists, Biblical scholars, medievalists, and linguists. This font is free for personal, non-commercial, or non-profit use. Examples50.

Screenshot51

Day Roman52
In digitizing this typeface, attention was mainly given to duplicate the technical imperfections of 16th century printing, which have been lost with today’s technologies. In order to accomplish this, some digital type design conventions have been avoided – things like the uniformity of the serifs, overall stroke precision, vertical proportion exactitude. This digitization should work nicely when used anywhere from 10 to 30 pt. Some design oddities, appealing or otherwise, may appear in 30+ pt usage. This serif-font is available in PC Type 1 and PC True Type formats. Examples53.

    Very nice fonts indeed. Thanks for collecting the list; many of these were new o me at least.

    It is unfortunate that you haven’t used the opportunity to educate font users as to the fundamental differences in the licenses behind these “free of cost” fonts. “Everything gold does not glitter” and everything free of cost is not free of restrictions. Some of these fonts are under “copyleft” or open licenses that would allow you (or anyone else) to distribute them, and some are not. Such open licenses are absolutely not public domain, as you imply, but do allow for unrestricted use while preserving the creative integrity of the work.

    As it stands, your fine list propagates the misconception that “free of cost” is all that matters.

    “What is your favourite?” It’s hard to say.. and it will depend on the use or the feel we need to comunicate.. But Fontin Sans is an excelent one, in my opinion.

    Great fonts here…. thanks a lot!!!

    It would be much easier and quicker to download these if you made the links to the fonts open in a new tab/window instead of navigating away from this page.

    The links lead to the home pages of the providers because they are providing you something free of charge. Not only are you advertising your lack of care for their exposure, you’re virtually screaming ” I don’t appreciate it but I’ll use it anyways! “

    Of the fonts above, the ones I like are MG Open Cosmetica and Scriptina. The rest are too “funny.” Other good free fonts? A.C.M.E. Explosive is the only good free comic book lettering font. Apple Garamond Light was great in the 1980s and early 1990s as the Apple corporate font and is still beautiful today, though they no longer use it. Katrina is a decent free Benguiat. November, PC Senior, Adore 64, and Amiga Forever are true “computer” fonts, not like the fake ones that people keep putting out. OCR A Extended is a good computer printer font. Pinewood is the best “log” font and quite pretty in its own right. Prestige is a useful typewriter font, though VTCorona is even better still. RSLaserLondon is the best calligraphy font. Stomper is the single best font to come out of the Chank group. And TopSecret is the best-looking “file folder” font.

    This is great stuff. The generosity & openness displayed by SmashingMagazine and its cohorts is frankly refreshing in this day and age!

    All the best!

    These Fonts are superb and a great addition to every Graphic Designers Toolbox.

    And please take the time and visit the Type Designers Website when you like their free font, as you can see these free font mostly as a teaser to even better material. don´t be lazy..there is a reward (sometimes even more free fonts :-)

    This is the best collection of professional free fonts I have ever seen all in one place. I recently bought a disc with over 2000 fonts on it and none were as stylish as this collection. I need another post like this. Keep it up!!!

    Thanks for an excellent web site. I recently came across a reference to the Venturis font family. Venturis is based on Adobe’s Utopia font. Would Venturis qualify as an “excellent free font”? Here’s the URL:
