Alhtough I like all freebies related to design I am especially fond of free fonts (see what I just did there). I often find myself looking for new fonts that i can use in my design and mostly I get referred to paying sites. One of the largest is certainly myfonts.com. They’ve got nearly every commercial font you will ever need. The best part though is that some of them are free. To make life a little easier I decided to share my findings with you. Below is a list of 22 free fonts available from myfonts. All you need to do is register on the site to gain access to them. I also want to point out that you don’t need to register any credit card (unless you want to buy fonts that is). Click on the image or name of the font to get to the download page. The number in the brackets indicates you how many different styles (bold, italic, different weights) are available for free. Go ahead, grab them, they’re all yours.

After the huge success of my Watercolour Brush Sets I decided to throw in a new set of high resolution photoshop brushes. This set contains 26 brushes, every letter of the alphabet, with resolutions of 1850+. As for the procedure, I printed all the letters on single sheets and cut hem out. Then I used black spray paint to transfer it onto white paper. I used the Disco Deck font as stencil.
Kinetic Typography is the method by which you visualize a speech, conversation or lyrics only by means of animated text. I’ve put together a list of 11 typographic videos about cult movies. Not only are these animations very interesting but also they offer a great source of inspiration for static typographic design. If that’s not enough you could always try to determine what fonts were used.
So here we are again with the free fonts list. Today I have restricted myself to ultra bold, techno style, fonts. I didn’t really know what to call them. Some might describe the fonts as retro or disco. The block letters are ideal for poster graphics. I bet you have all seen the amazing video of D.A.N.C.E by Justice. It offers a great illustration on how you can use this kind of fonts in simple, effective, t-shirt designs as shown in the screenshots below.
Please remember that although all fonts are free for personal and non-commercial use you have to check the indivual disclaimers to find out if and how you can incorporate them in commercial designs.
