Massive Collection of Elegant Thin Fonts

preview_imageTypography 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.

    I missed the Font Aller Light from
    Thanks for the great collection. :)

  • esranull

    very very very very nice list thanks a lot

  • trimbakeshwar

    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.

  • Raul Sim

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

  • Taimur Asghar

    Awesome fonts !

  • Storm

    AWESOME COLLECTION! Most of these i already have but there are some extras here yey! thanks!

    Thanks WDD

  • Childmonster

  • david

    Awesome collection! I’ve been using Asenine and Comfortaa for a long time.

  • Dan

    Thanks for putting this list together! I love Sansumi and a Sansation. I’ve bookmarked the article.

  • Boost Inspiration

    Nice fonts. Liked the last one “Zag”

  • strenuouskid

    This is just what I need! Thank you so much!

  • Imokon

    Zag is my absolute favorite, love at first sight :p

  • rickzwebz

    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?

  • Suhela

    These are really amazing collection of fonts!!!!

  • biduzido

    Veery good!

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Web Designers

    thanks for the collection, I love using

  • 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.

    • Walter

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

  • 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. ;)

  • Web Design Dispatch

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

  • Naveen
