Five Free Fonts (for the day after) Friday

16 Jun

Five Free Fonts for Friday is my effort to provide information on well designed fonts that are offered as a legitimate free downloads by their designers/type foundries.  Welcome to the first installment!

1) Bender from Jovanny Lemonad type foundry, designed by Ivan Gladkikh and Oleg Zhuravlev.


Bender is a great typeface in 4 weights with matching italics for each.  It’s great for something that needs a mechanical, industrial, masculine, science fiction, or futuristic feel.  It also has a full set of Cyrillic characters, so you can use it if you need to type something in Russian.  CLICK HERE to get to the page where you can download the font.

2) Kirimiomi Swash by the Wordshape type foundry, designed by Ian Lynam

Kirimomi swash is a great true-italic typeface with swash capitals.  It’s useful for things that need an elegant, graceful, vintage, 1880s or old-timey feel.  CLICK HERE to get to the page where you can download the font.

3) Black Jack by Typadelic type foundry, designed by Ronna Penner

Black Jack is a great casual script.  It is a good font if you need a breezy, care-free, light and decorative feel, or if you just want to pretend you have beautiful hand lettering skills.  Its the kind of font that is useful for food packaging.  CLICK HERE to get to the page where you can download the font.

4) XXII Dont Mess With Vikings Hardcore -from Doubletwo Studios type foundry

XXII Dont Mess With Vikings Hardcore is a handy bold, angular all-caps font.   It projects a strong, bold, industrial, military air of superiority, and its similar in tone to the font machine, but feels a little less clunky and trite.  CLICK HERE to get to the page where you can download the font.

5) Codename Coder 4F from 4th february type foundry, designed by Sergiy Tkachenko

Codename Coder 4F is a monospace typeface, which means all the character are the same width, and  they will all line up vertically when you type on different lines.  This is useful for programmers typing out a program in a text editor, but it has design possibilities as well.  CLICK HERE to get to the page where you can download the font.

DISCLAIMER:  I try to make sure all of these fonts are provided free from their designers/IP owners, and are available for commercial use.  Please check for yourself to make sure that is true before using.  If that is not true, please let me know.
