Free Fonts


Back in the early 1990s when we started producing publications, fonts were always causing major issues and very expensive to own. In those days, we work on Macs which came with limited amounts of fonts pre installed. When we embraced the internet back in 1994, we soon found we were not alone, others cold not afford the fonts and soon turned to the Internet looking for alternatives.

There were fonts available but normally produced by someone in the bedroom. While this seemed like a great step forward, it cause us major issues when trying to send publications to print. They were also limit to one face, (regular, no bold, italic, bold italic etc) which restricted the design process.

Over time, the availability of free fonts has grown but still suffering from some of the issues above. However, at the time of writing this post, Google has produced a set of some 647 fonts that you can download for free to install on your Mac, Windows or Linux machine with the added bonus you can also use these fonts on your web pages.

Get yourself over to and get designing. We have used a variety of these in our print publications without issues.
