25 Beautfully Crafted Free Web Fonts

We have been seeing a great increase in flexibility among web designers. The community has opened up to new standards and allowed these methods to infiltrate our way of designing. Fonts are a key feature necessary in all forms of web design and development.

The post web 2.0 generation has grown impatient of older non-standard methods. Flash support allowed for dynamic text to be generated on-the-fly with very little afterthought. This method was very bulky and weighed down much of the scripts powering such websites. With many advancements in CSS3 and similar areas we were always going to see an explosion of web fonts onto the scene. And, boy, we have.

We have chosen 25 free web fonts that are so good we can’t believe they are the free. Here they are…

Google Font Directory

Another option for developers is to ignore physical fonts, like those above, and work within an online directory. With cloud computing soaring in popularity we have seen larger developments unfold such as Google Web Fonts.

Google Fonts provides an API which lets developers pull font stacks out of their database. If you’re curious check out the API documentation which has in-depth FAQs and a comprehensive getting started guide. All fonts are free and served under an open source license which means you are able to work with all fonts in their database completely free, no strings attached!

Finished!

Digital typography won’t be leaving anytime soon and we’re able to dress up our styles now more than ever before. The curve is just beginning as we’re ushering into a new boom era in Internet technology. Exciting times!
