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 too.
This month we’ve found two of them – FF Good and Segoe UI. It’s not quite clear if one is legally allowed to use Segoe UI, which is also presented below. Please read the license agreement carefully – it can change from time to time.
Free Fonts Of The Month: FF Good, Segoe UI Link
You might need to load the page two or more times until the right page appears. You’ll also need to register a free account to be able to download the typeface.
2. LTR DataMine (removed, since the font wasn’t working properly!)
According to the license, “The user of this LettError font software agrees to credit LettError as the trademark and copyright owner of the LettError fonts and list the font names, wherever and whenever design, production, or any other credits are shown.”
3. Segoe UI.
The design of Segoe UI improves the reading and scanning of text while leveraging ClearType. The overall approach to font size increase and font usage creates consistency across Windows and applications for a better experience in all languages.
