Without delving too much into typeface classification and to also help you find that perfect font you’ve been looking for much quicker, we’ve grouped the most popular categories for you: Free Serif Fonts, Free Sans Serif Fonts, Free Slab Serif Fonts, Free Geometric Fonts and Free Monospaced Fonts.
Free Serif Fonts
Serifs are defined by the small lines (or decorative features) that trail from the edges of each letter and number. As Serif fonts are considered to be easier to read, they’re typically used in print design as the characters are clearer and more distinctive, making it much easier for our brains to process.
Just like Slab Serifs (see further down), there are always exceptions to the rule. Most Serifs will work perfectly well as a title or headline on the web, and some, as you will see by the selection of free Serif fonts below, will even work beautifully as body text, but please do choose your web typography carefully.
