Today’s article is a treat for our users as we went out and had chit chat with many designers to suggest us some really awesome fonts that designers should have in their library. After many days of chatting and emailing we have gathered 25 must have free fonts that are ideal for logo and heading design.
We made sure all the selected fonts are strong in appearance and are easy to read.
This collection of fonts will help you in your projects either it is clean or decorative design. We hope you will like this post and if you have any other fonts that can help other please post them in the comment section.
Our special thanks goes to LogoNeed guys who contributed mostly in making of this list.
Gnuolane is a serious headline font in five weights. While it borrows from 19th Century grotesque models, it possesses a superelliptical sixties sneer. Gnuolane includes old-style numerals, ordinals, superiors, inferiors, f-ligatures and class-based kerning.
Mentone is a new general purpose typeface, an attempt at extending the line of the great sans-serifs of the previous century, Frutiger – Stone Sans – Myriad. The font has round corners and subtle chamfers, which are all but invisible at text sizes, but add an upbeat, irreverent expression at display sizes. The typeface is named after the beautiful bayside suburb of Melbourne, Australia, where the designer lives. Version 2.5 has improved hinting and better display in Microsoft applications.
League Gothic is a revival of an old classic, and one of our favorite typefaces, Alternate Gothic #1. It was originally designed by Morris Fuller Benton for the American Type Founders Company in 1903. The company went bankrupt in 1993, and since the original typeface was created before 1923, the typeface is in the public domain. We decided to make our own version, and contribute it to the Open Source Type Movement. Thanks to a commission from the fine & patient folks over at WND.com, it’s been revised & updated with contributions from Micah Rich, Tyler Finck, and Dannci, who contributing extra glyphs.
Started off as me trying to make a few custom letters to go on a t-shirt design. ithnkerfoam was all I needed but I ended up with a whole damn font! Best used with a large font size due to tight letter spacing!
FRANCHISE is a powerful new display typeface meant to communicate your message quickly and with power. The characters were meticulously drawn to achieve a unifomity without compromising style. Franchise is just as much at home on the front of a donut shoppe as it is on the scoreboard at a football stadium.
