90+ Best Free Fonts, Spring 2017.
2017 may be off to a questionable start in the world of politics, but at least we can rely on a steady supply of free fonts to buck up our mood. All the usual suspects are still being released, but we’re seeing a lot less in the way of calligraphic lettering and brush fonts compared to 2016, and an increase in serifs. Bold weight sans-serifs seem pretty popular at the moment too. There’s also a welcome rise in the number of free non-latin fonts, particularly cyrillic. In this list, you’ll find something to cover any eventuality from stand out display text to dense body copy. Plus, we’ve included a sprinkling of experimental, decorative, and quirky fonts for you to play with and be inspired by. Enjoy, and let us know which ones you feel for, and which ones you didn't. All fonts listed here were free or offered free weights, for personal and/or commercial use (as specified) at the time of writing.
