If you are a budding graphic designer, a seasoned pro, or just someone who loves creating your own little projects, you would be familiar with the long-drawn search for the perfect font. Searching and downloading ideal fonts take up so much time but is essential in many design work as you simply can't rely on the basic ones that comes with your computer. Honestly speaking, we really cannot use Helvetica for every single design, right?
Even though I create my own fonts for honey&gazelle Design Studio, I still love to scour the internet for awesome fonts. I am a font-addict. I collect them like how many beauty junkies collect nail polishes and lipsticks! The nicer and well-structured fonts out there tends to come along with a hefty price tag but once you search hard enough, you can find gems that are free or donation-based.
If you are just looking to design something for fun, here are some free fonts for personal use. To download, just click on its name or the image above it. Enjoy!
Created by Tomaz Leskovec who was inspired by the Italian rationalist movement in the mid 1920s, Manifesto is a super clean uppercase show font that is simply perfect for headlines.
If you are looking for a multifunctional elegant typeface, Parisish is it! Parisish was created by George Williams and the old Parisian art-deco vibe of it is just stunning.
Anders was designed by Tom Anders Watkins who wanted to create a modern and minimal san serif display font. This geometric typeface will work terrifically with many trendy designs, especially in promotional materials for festivals and events.
This decorative alternative typeface was designed by Filipe Rolim. High Tide is great for any hipster and/or stylised poster design or logos!
Adorably quirky and sweet, Bellaboo is an all caps handmade font from Marcelo Reis Melo. Use this for craft projects or anything that needs a little bit of charm!
