Every month I publish oven fresh fonts here on the gonzoblog.nl, fonts which are available for free and are interesting enough to take a closer look at. As always I’ve tried to focus only on the high quality and readable fonts.
All of these fonts are characterized by excellent legibility, well-finished geometric designs, consistency of form – and therefore well suited for web or print, in particular headlines, logo and flyer design. Varying from delicately elegant, confidently bold or finesse light, they can be used for some passages of text as well as a fancy display types.
Note: Tracking in all these font examples is set to 0.
In case you missed some more beautiful new fonts, make sure to check these earlier articles too: Fresh and Free Typeface Series. So let’s kick off with some gorgeous fresh and free fonts ..!

Source Code Pro (6 Styles – OTF)
Source Code was designed by Paul D. Hunt as a companion to Source Sans. This complementary family was adapted from the Source design due to a request to create a monospaced version for coding applications. Source Code preserves the design features and vertical proportions of Source Sans, but alters the glyph widths so that they are uniform across all glyphs and weights.
Six weights of Source Code and source files can be downloaded
