Thanks for the compliments everyone, I’ve been collecting these fonts in my bookmarks for at least two months!

Chris Lentz Jul 15 2009

Awesome list!

Sumesh Jul 15 2009

Useful roundup, I already have a bunch of these fonts – Nevis, Aller Sans, Delicious etc., but I’d have liked to see a few more serifs in there.

And maybe also mention the fact that free fonts and professional designs don’t always go well – more often than not, these free fonts are overused, rendering your designs not-so-unique if you use them in the design.

Issa Qandil Jul 15 2009

Great list, thanks for sharing.

Downloading …..

RipeType Jul 15 2009

Tamia Jul 15 2009

Museo is one of my favorites. Thanks for the recs!

Terry Anne Jul 15 2009

Wonderful! Thanks so much!


You say “high quality” and I looked quickly into #6 (Quicksand). It was the author’s first effort at creating a font and the spacing is bad.

Tip: When you say “high quality” and “for professional design”, people expect them to be just that.

Don’t know about the rest on your list, but after a look at only one, I’m very disappointed.

qubed Jul 15 2009

i may have mentioned this on another post (sorry, i cant keep all these recent best of typography posts straight, a little overkill, but anyway…..)

check out – it is a private typography forum putting just about every typography related site out there to shame. house industries and alejandro paul count themselves as members. i think the site is private / invite only, but if you can get in, you are golden with any font you may want.

Philipp Jul 15 2009

Nice list! Makes my day happy :)

thank you! this is great. :)

I’ve stumbled across a handful of those this year, but there are some great ones in the list that are new to me. A tremendous list. Thanks for posting it.

PVLiii Jul 15 2009

Anyone know how to install the Flaminia Type System font? It’s a bunch of VFB files. I’m pretty sure even Google doesn’t know how to do it.

Alex Korsakov Jul 15 2009

Gorgeous! Thank you so much for this post!

Great collection! Thank you.. especially for the direct link!

Robyn Quinter Jul 15 2009

A really nice collection of fonts. Thanks for sharing them. I like the trend toward clean, modern lines.

Meador Jul 16 2009

Way cool! Nice clean fonts with a modern Myriad-style flair. I’ve got more than 10,000 fonts ahd these are a great addition. Thanks!

nachokb Jul 16 2009

Just one issue: Often FT is not free by any means, its author clearly states:

> banners, books, etc)**

> if these rules aren’t followed, I’ll be forced to take
> my own measures.

That text file appears to be out of date, since the deviant art page for the font has it has CC3.
