The best free fonts to download in 2017

The best free fonts to download in 2017

As any designer knows, the font you choose for a design can make or break the project. It’s critical that your font choice conveys the correct emotion you’re trying to evoke. Some script fonts, for example, may look sophisticated and elegant, while others look sloppy and messy. Clients may not understand the difference between a serif and a sans serif font, but it sure makes a difference in the final product.

It’s all about finding the right one for each individual piece that you work on, which is why it’s so important to collect a wide variety of typefaces. (Or at least know where to find them.)

If your font collection is looking a little outdated, the beginning of the year is the perfect time to spruce it up with some brand new typefaces! From elegant handwritten scripts to sturdy sans serifs, we’ve rounded up a list of some excellent free fonts that’ll modernize your library.

If you find one you like, just be sure to check the license, or if there’s a pro version! Many of these free fonts are actually just a lite version of a full font family, meaning there might be different styles or weights available, if you’re looking for an alternative.

Happy downloading!
