22 Best Free Fonts for Graphic Designers in 2015

Typefaces are an important part of any creative designing process involving written text material.

From catchy one-liners printed on t-shirts to captions for product advertisements and from phrases used as slogans on banners and billboards to content published on web pages, typefaces are everywhere. It is because various typefaces have artistic and structural differences between them and hence, two typefaces vary greatly. This scenario makes it suitable for using different typefaces for different purposes.

Typefaces are broadly categorized in to various types, namely serif, sans-serif, slab serif, semi-serif, monospace, script, Unicode and so on.

Depending upon the requirement, a particular typeface is chosen to be used for writing text. Graphic designers are required to possess a great deal of understanding about using the right kind of typefaces for their creative projects. Although, the internet is stormed by several newly released or latest Typefaces every month, it is an arduous task to stay updated on the same.

Hence, I decided to club together some recently released typefaces in the online market which are trending on the designing circuit. I have listed down free 22 unique typefaces that are popular among designers. I hope you will enjoy the list.
