Are you struggling to find that particular typeface that matches your creative vision? Then you’ve come to the right place! We do know how difficult and time-consuming it can be to find good, high-quality fonts, so we’ve done the searching for you. With over 100 free fonts to choose from, we guarantee that you will find the one, if not the several, you need. These really are the fonts you’ve been looking for!
This collection focuses on those clean and distinctive fonts that will make a professional and highly legible impact on your designs, wether that be on the web or in print. So, there are no overly decorative styles, as we have covered hand-drawn fonts, brush fonts, sci-fi fonts, chunky fonts, gothic fonts, outline fonts, comic fonts, graffiti fonts, and all those other creative and quirky fonts we all love, before.
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 Monospaced Fonts.
Just like with all free resources, you need to check the license of each font to make sure that you have the proper legal permission to use them. At the time of writing this article, all of the fonts were free to use, but we urge you to double-check that there haven’t been any recent modifications to the license.
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.

There are many different sub-categories to serifs, Slab just happens to be the most popular variant.

But there are many Slab Serifs that will work perfectly well – as you will see by the free font selection below – in a smaller font size and could be easily used as body text.
