    five favorite free fonts, typo graphic by kelsey cronkhite

    Who doesn’t love a good freebie? This week I’ve rounded up five of my favorite free fonts from around the web.

    1. MUSEO SANS. This has to be my number one favorite free typeface, as it’s seriously versatile. It works for display type as well as body copy, and even translates into the web. I use it all over my blog; it’s tried and true!

    2. LAVENDERIA. This is a fun little script typeface brought to you by a favorite source of mine for free typography, Lost Type Co.

    3. BLANCH. It always comes in handy to have a typeface to use when it’s a tight squeeze. Also by Lost Type Co., Blanch is a little quirky and fun, but definitely still serious.

    4. SINA NOVA. This traditional serif typeface is a little more fun and modern than your standard Times. This is available for free in it’s regular weight, and would be great for body copy on a more traditional piece.

    5. SILVER FAKE. Who doesn’t love a good wood-type revival? This typeface works in the opposite direction as Blanch, and fits into places that are more wide than they are tall. It’s a great display type for when you feel a little retro. Watch your kerning (type-nerd speak for the space between each letter) on this one though folks!

    I hope that you enjoyed this round-up! Do you have any favorite free typefaces that you use?
