Hi, i'm new here...
My question is:
If I download a free font today with its proper license, will this license allow me to use it for indefinitely time or could the license change in some time without giving me a notice. Note that i´m talking about licenses with no warning about changes in the future. Thanks...

I'm looking for a free alternative to Univers that I can use in a design class for non-designers. It obviously need not be perfect, but somewhat similar and in a couple of weights. Your professional advice is highly appreciated!

Could Gesta be downloaded for free somewhere, or is there a good alternative?

Thanks.

I'm looking for the following fonts; either free or close alternatives that are free. The originals can be found at http://www.sudtipos.com/fonts.

Feel Script
Almond Script
Amorinda
Angelus
Biographer
Brisa
Cenizas
Diplomatic
Galgo Script
Herencia
Inoxida
Matogrosso
Milonguita
Ministry Script
Sinfonieta
Tiza
Mrs Von Eckley
Her Von Mueller
Mrs St Delafield
Mr Donaldson

These are commercial fonts; I'm having trouble finding any alternatives that are anywhere close, or anyone willing to share. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated!!!

the free-font »Fracmetrica Black« is a modern and geometric blackletter with several opentype-features like ligatures, case-sensitives, text figures.
It's kind of condensed and has a high contrast. The typeface's construction is based on an isometric 60°-grid.

Created by Jakob Runge 2009 during the Workshop »fancy_fonts_&_porno_pattern« at the university of applied sciences würzburg

the open-type version of »Fracmetrica Black« is for free creative-commons download.

Santa is late but he's finally here! The OpenType Basic version, full commercial licence, of Adelle Bold and Bold Italic can be downloaded free of charge at TypeTogether's website.

The award winning Adelle is a dynamic slab serif designed by Veronika Burian and José Scaglione. While it is conceived specifically for intensive editorial use, its personality and flexibility make it a real multiple-purpose typeface. The intermediate weights deliver a very legible and neutral look when used in text sizes, providing the usual robustness expected in a newspaper font. The unobstrusive appearance, excellent texture and slightly dark color allow it to behave flawlesly in continuous text setting, even in the most demanding editorial applications.

As it becomes larger in print, Adelle shows its personality through a series of meassured particularities that make it easy to remember and identify. Its energetic character, so inherent to slab serif fonts, becomes evident as the typeface is used for subheadings and headlines.

The full OpenType Pro version of this font family has 12 styles, ranging from light to heavy, with more than 900 characters per font. It provides support for many OpenType features such as small caps, stylistic alternates, fractions, five sets of figures and more.

Hello There!

I'm making my first font, and releasing betas as I make any little bit of progress (in the same way as open source projects do, since my background is PHP programming).

Is a nice bold condensed script with plenty of ligatures and final forms alternates.
For me is a learning experience, so any feedback is highly appreciated.

You can download it for free from the lobster font mini-site.

Hi,

I'm trying to put together a nice presentation template for my new department at work. Unfortunately, I'm a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to my talks, and so I'm not happy to putting a pixelated PNG in my talk as the department logo.

Unfortunately, the person who put this image together is no longer working here, I'm told, so noone knows what font was used. I'm trying to recreate this logo in high quality.

I'd like to request an ID on this font, and ideally, a free font that is as close to this one as possible, such that I may recreate it.

I think I've IDed the font as Scylla, although confirmation would be fantastic. It's not free, so I can't try it. I've attached the logo, and look forward to your opinions and suggstions.

Thanks,
Quentin

I'm considering creating a font created from an old typeface from a specimen book with an expired copyright and making it available for free for both commercial and non-commercial use. My goal is to get social media followers. More free fonts could follow if there are signs that the approach works. Do you think that's a realistic goal? Is there something I might have better success with? The typeface I've considered is Bodoni. Do you have a better recommendation?

I've just released a new free font called SONAR SCRIPT available for free download at the Floodfonts website. If you want to see more in-use examples you are invited to visit the Behance project: http://bit.ly/103LIko

SONAR SCRIPT is a modular, experimental typeface that plays with the idea to fold a line of text from a continuous strip of paper. In spite of its technical and contemporary appearance, the overall impression of the typeface is unusual and very characteristic! SONAR SCRIPT works really well to create grid-based, geometric layouts with large letters or to design logotypes.

I was convinced and excited about the idea to develop a script font that does not rely on handwritten letters. Many design principles of written characters also apply when folding letters, for example the need of the writer to develop the word of one continuous stroke. And also the definition of the lettershape by the angle of the pen nib can be applied to the fold angle of the paper strip. Many problems were similar to standard font development but in some places unusual new solutions had to be found that give SONAR SCRIPT its distinct character.

The free font is available at: http://www.floodfonts.com/freefont/sonar.html

Hello everybody,

which free fonts do you consider the best to publish books? I will self publish books under CC, that's why they must be free. There are some amazing ones that are non-free, especially from Adobe, but I couldn't fine anyone that was clean, light and elegant enough to provide a pleasant reading. So maybe you know some. ;)

By the way this website contains a description of "Stone Type Foundry", the same font in the attached image. I was astonished how beautiful and elegant it is, and I think it must be perfect to publish a book. Unfortunately it's paid. But what do you think of it? Just curious.

Thanks!

I am happy to announce Dezen, my new release!

Dezen is a contemporary, mechanical grotesque typeface. Its letters were first constructed from individual modules and then optically refined to enhance its rhythm. Its tight letter spacing and narrow proportions make the typeface particularly well suited for display sizes and headlines. When you add spacing, font can be used for shorter amount of text, bigger than 12 points.

The Dezen type family consists of a wide variety of styles – solid and stencil. The Dezen Pro subfamily combines all 4 styles (Solid, Stencil 01, Stencil 02, Stencil 03) in a specific sequence, which originates a “pattern” for the alphabet (or dezen, in Slovak).

Dezen Pro Regular is for free!

Sintesi. Sans meets serif.

You would like to express tradition by using a contemporary font? Sintesi might be exactly what you are looking for.

Sintesi stands for synthesis: the unification of serif and sans-serif into a contemporary font, which surprises with different facets depending on its application.
In copy size Sintesi performs like a sans-serif. It is a compact and well readable font that fulfills all requirements of modern digital media.

In larger sizes, Sintesi unfolds its traditional character. Now, its strong contrast and the perceptible feather-ductus stand out clearly, as we appreciate it in a historical old style face.

Sintesi is completed by a suitable italic. Its cursive character has more to do with writing-speed than to moderate inclination. Therefore Sintesi may be well-suited for many other purposes, not only for emphasis.

The whole font family consists of 20 styles and offers a wide range of Western and Eastern European special characters, typographical ligatures, uppercase, oldstyle and fraction figures.

Start combining antiquity with modernity!

Download a free trial version of Sintesi with a reduced character set. Check it out!
