15+ Superfresh and Free Fonts for you to Download (no.3 2013)

| 2 Comments

And another post with gorgeous and readable fonts, these relatively new fonts have been published in the past 6 – 8 weeks and are designed to be well suited for web as well for print, in particular for the use in headlines, logo and flyer designs.

Some of these new fonts also come in more styles, so you can easily embed these fonts in your web designs or use them as a corporate typeface. As always, the main priority in selecting these fonts for this collection was the readability, diversity in weights and styles, number of characters or a specific reason to use this font for e.g. headlines or in Poster designs.

Readable text affects how users process the information in the content, you want users to be able to read your content and absorb it easily .. poor readability scares readers away from the content.

Note: Tracking in all these fonts is set to 0.

Every month we try to publish new free high-quality fonts here on the gonzoblog.nl, in case you missed some of these beautiful new fonts, make sure to check these articles too: Fresh and Free Typeface Series. Okay, time to show some oven fresh baked fonts for you to download and add to your font library ..!
