Massive Collection of Elegant Thin Fonts

Resources, Typography | Sep 21, 2010

Typography is one of the most crucial design elements, and as such, finding the most appropriate fonts for your project can be a challenging task.

Today we’re making it easy for you, with a collection of 70 free thin fonts that we gathered from the web and that you can download to use right now. Most of them are sans-serif although there are a few serif options as well.

Thin fonts are becoming extremely popular these days; their clean lines are perfect for logos and headers.

They look great, especially at larger sizes, although they can sometimes also be successfully used for body text, provided there’s enough contrast.

All the fonts featured in this compilation are free to use, however some restrictions may apply. Please check the specific terms of use for each font in the download file.

    He’s making the point (a very valid one in my opinion) that we (web designers etc) shouldn’t let our ideas of how web design is ‘traditionally’ done effect what methods we choose to use when designing.

    You know, I was searching for such a list, but couldn’t find one. Great list!

    A question.. I have tried to use thin fonts on some of my sites but they seem to be fairly unreadable unless they are made large, which does not always suit the design.
    Do other feel this way?

  • http://suhela.deviantart.com Suhela

    These are really amazing collection of fonts!!!!

  • http://www.twitter.com/biduzido biduzido

    Veery good!

    It would be nice if there were a pack with all of them to download, or grouped by license

  • http://www.literaryspring.com Rebecca

    That is an excellent list. There are several I have not seen and thin fonts may not be as showy as some other types, but they are useful.

  • http://twitter.com/seodragan Dragan

    You have to make them a little bit bigger on a webpage in order for people to see their true beauty but otherwise, great, and I mean GREAT collection.

    thanks for the collection, I love using dafont.com

  • Bert Vanderveen

    My main beef with this selection is that around 90% of the typefaces are crap. One look at the way S’s are drawn will bear evidence of that, or the complete abscence of compensation in the geometric glyphs. A lot of this is pure amateur stuff and has no place in the toolbox of a serious designer.

  • Ryan McGrane

    Just a little “bug” I found, the font preview for Raleway uses Quicksand.

    • http://www.webdesignerdepot.com Walter

      Awesome catch, thanks for that, we’ve updated the image.

  • http://www.psstyleaday.com/ John @ Photoshop Style A Day

    Nice collection of fonts! I find it harder to create styles for thin fonts compared to big bold ones, although when you get it right, the thin ones just look so nice. ;)

  • http://www.webdesigndispatch.com/ Web Design Dispatch

    These are awesome I think the code font is my favorite of these elegant/modern fonts.
