I really believe typography can either make or break a design. A great font can carry an okay design to new levels, and an awful font can drag a great design to new depths. Fonts have so many characteristics, they’re almost human with what they can communicate to the viewer. Choosing a font is almost always the first thing I do in any design project. But, of course, there’s not always a huge typography budget, so needless to say, free is better. Thankfully you don’t always have to pay a lot for gorgeous fonts, there are a lot of great free options out there. You just have to remember to check the font license, and make sure the fonts you are using are free for commercial use as well, so you can use them on places like your website or blog. Here are 6 of my favourite free handwritten fonts.
