When I started working on this post, I was at a loss for what to call it. Free Fonts for ____? So I shelved the title and kept working on picking the fonts … all of my very favorite fonts.
Suddenly I heard Julie Andrews’ voice in my head, singing “Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens,” and it was clear to me: My Favorite Things!
Who says life isn’t a musical? Who says it isn’t normal to hear voices in your head, especially voices that belong to the one and only Julie Andrews?
The point being, these fonts have nothing in common except that they are exceptionally awesome AND FREE, and they’re my favorite.
Free fonts for everyday design
I keep going back to these fonts. They are versatile. I tried to compile a list here that you could draw from for any personal project, and you won’t be disappointed.
The fancy ones are sturdy and not over-the-top.
The handwritten fonts are not too cheesy and well-spaced.
Elephant and Elsie are beautiful heavyweight serifs that make a bold statement.
Montserrat, Arvo and Le Havre perfectly complement the script fonts, making combos effortless.
