Being a typeface lover myself, I love to search the different websites of typefoundries, or clicking tweets that mention fonts, etc. I strongly believe that type can set the mood of every design and can make your message more personal. The proper selection of typography can convert your normal design into a very attractive piece of ‘communication’.
Among other things, effective typography manages to achieve three necessary objectives of designing are Look, Appearance and Outcome which helps you to stand out from the crowds. To communicate effectively, typography requires appropriate, readable and high-quality typefaces. This collection of fonts are designed to be well suited for web or print, headlines, logo and flyer design.
So let’s cut the crap and show you some more fresh font goodness:

The typeface follows the humanist model of Ludovico Arrighi’s italic type from Renaissance Italy, but its calligraphic details have been simplified to create a friendly voice. Pigeon also incorporates some of the “sparkle” that gives drama to the Dutch Baroque types of Johannes Fleischmann, referencing the nobility of letter-writing.

Inspiration for the creation of this font came from Aleksandra Henrikh. For this headset developed two typefaces — an old and new style. The old style is based on the typography of Peter I (Russian Czar). The second on modern typography, adopted by the Bolsheviks. The headset has a mixed style, because of this, she looks more beautiful and unusual from the rest.

Logisoso is an ongoing type design project. Logisoso is a reinterpretation of the Delhaize logo lettering. It was used to identify different buildings. Created during a signage project for a logistics center, where it was used to identify different buildings, the font was later completed with Inkscape and generated with FontForge. The download package contains the source files for you to improve and optimize the font.

Lekton is a great looking mono-spaced sans-serif as an alternative to Courier and free to download in three weights of regular, italic and bold. Lekton is a nice face inspired by olivetti typewriters created at Isia Urbino (Institute for Industrial Arts in Italy) in eight hour. Lekton is an open-source project, with no copyright or trademark qualification in order to permit the free use of the typeface, that can be modified as well as redesigned.
Note: Lekton is submitted to fontsquirrel on 22th December 2010, officially the only font from 2010, but because it’s by far one of the best monospaced typefaces in this last year or so, is the only reason why I have included this font.
Designed by: Accademia di Belle Arti di Urbino
