Quality Free Fonts
My goal when I started this post series was to share a single font every week that you’d love and want to use in your projects. However, this week is going to be a little different, because this font foundry has created such an awesome collection of typefaces of different styles, that I can’t recommend just one. They all knock it out of the park for different reasons. If you’ve already heard of the Lost Type Co-Op, then you know what I am talking about. Everything they make is golden, and you can see that in the previews of their free fonts, shown below.
That Isn’t All…
The list I provided above are just my personal favorites. There are many more typefaces available on their site, so be sure to go and check them out. You might like one that I didn’t list.
Free For Personal Use: Reasonably Priced Commercially
The Lost Type Co-Op provides free fonts for personal projects, which is great for students. You can get amazing fonts for free, so you can hone your skills without having to shell out money you don’t have. However, for a commercial license, they don’t make you pay through the nose. For example, Klinic Slab, with 4 weights, is only $45. If you go to some of the bigger font companies, one weight is $25, so $45 for 4 is super-reasonable. If you end up making money of a project based on their typefaces, you should definitely pay for the commercial license, because the Lost Type Co-Op is reasonable. That’s another reason I love them so much; they aren’t trying to rob you blind, and they provide great quality.
Another reason the free-for-personal-use model works so well is because you can try it out for free, to see if it will work for your project. I am much more likely to buy a typeface if I am able to try it out first and look at the placement in use. It’s just up to us to be honest and actually pay for it if we use it in a commercial project.
