If you’re like me you probably quickly got tired of the standard fonts that comes with Microsoft Windows. They have a great selection and a few of them are actually pretty neat but they get old fast. I constantly find myself seeing advertisements or book covers that leave me longing for the font that they used in it’s design.

I’ve found 10 more fonts that I think are absolutely terrific and since I’ve always been taught to share I decided I would let you all know about them. So without further commotion may I present to you 10 amazing fonts for your design work.

      Eric B. » You’re welcome. I’m glad you liked them.

      Surender Sharma » Great. I hope that you’re able to make something really nice with them!

      InternetHowBlog » You can install these by downloading the zip or rar files to your computer. Then extract them to a folder on your desktop. Then copy the font file into the fonts directory on your computer: C:\Windows\Fonts. Once you do this the fonts will be available in every program on your computer including Word, Photoshop, etc. I hope this helps!

      Mantiuxa » You’re welcome. I’m glad you like them!

      George Serradinho » Did you see my last font post? I had some sketched fonts that might work nicely for children. I’ll also do some looking around to try to find you some more. Here’s the link to the sketched fonts. Let me know if it helps or not. http://www.sitesketch101.com/articles/fonts-graphics/10-beautiful-handsketched-fonts/

    Awesome Fonts.
    I will use these for Logo creation.

      Seth W said:

      I think Logos are about the only great place to use new fonts. Otherwise the fonts do not always allow for compatibility on different browsers.

        Nicholas Z. Cardot said:

        Seth W –> Right. I see typography used in artwork also that looks great. Because people can always load a jpeg in their browser.

    Hi there,

    I’m looking for a font to use for my site. Sort of a kiddies font, but think. Any suggestions?

    THANKS! I’m such a font junkie!

      Nicholas Z. Cardot said:

      Traci » You’re welcome. I’m glad that you liked them!

      Arisu » That’s right. It’s a great thing to build a large collection of.

      Chris Cline » You’re welcome.

      Matt Longley » Thanks. I plan on keeping up the work and hopefully I will continue to get better!

      Stefan » Ha ha. I like that. Everyone likes different things and that is one of the best things about websites and design work. You get to design with fonts and elements that you think are great and others get to use what they think are great.

      Bruce » Thanks for the recommendation to Goerge. I’m gonna check out that font as well.

      Typhoon » Your welcome. Hopefully they help you out with one of your projects!

    Those fonts are really beautiful! I liked Diavlo the most. But, I would like to know if there is a chance to add these fonts to my word document or may be a hack to install in blogger or something?

    • September 1, 2009

      Nicholas Z. Cardot said:

      Mukund –> You can install it to your Word document. Save the file to your computer. Extract the package and copy the font files into the C:/windows/fonts. They will then be installed on every program you have including Word, Photoshop, or anything else.

    cool list.. my fav is definitely Gentium. The others do leave a little to be desired in their traits.. theres always something off about certain free fonts.. These atleast put forth the effort to make something VERY close to professional.

    my fav. font right now (it changes often) is Avante Garde. I went through loads of fonts for my logo and that was the one I settled on. I have the whole book, and its amazing, very versatile.

    For grunge, my fav is “Birth of A Hero” although i seem to see it everything.. that and Bleeding Cowboy

      lindsay –> At lease you found one that you like. You are right that it is hard to find really impressive looking free fonts.

    Cardo fonts seems to be great for professional sites. Thanks for this tip Nicholas.

      Cardo font is not too far different with our usual font : Times new roman.

      I’m interested on Lacuna

      • September 18, 2009

        Ron Boracay said:

        Yep, but I am looking for a pro looking fonts. I don’t use too much designers fonts.

    Elena said:

    Thanks for the font selection. I’m curious to see how Romeral will work out.

  21. September 10, 2009

    ZXT said:

    They are all cool that its hard to pick which one to use for my blog.

    Can anyone do me a little favor and suggest while one is the best for my blog Nothing But Random -> http://www.nothingbutrandom.com

    I’ll appreciate it a lot and will mention your blog with your own choice of keywords in my blog as a token of my appreciation. Thanks in advance.

    I really like Fertigo.

    Am not much into web design though (not even photoshop) so I wouldn’t know how to add this to Microsoft word or notepad. But thanks for the tips. I didn’t even know some people actually makes a career out of developing new font styles. Now I do. 😀

    • September 11, 2009

      Seth W said:

      Yeah it is pretty crazy that people have careers from Typography, but I guess everyone has a niche right!

    • September 14, 2009

      Ron Boracay said:

      Just copy those fonts to your font folder (usually under windows folder).

      Then it will come out as an option at all of your software like MS office, photoshop and more.

      • September 16, 2009

        ZXT said:

        Was this reply intended for me? I am actually asking how to integrate it with WordPress so my post will have these fonts.

        • September 16, 2009

          Ron Boracay said:

          ZXT, its for Pinaybackpacker, she is asking on how to add those fonts at her MS office applications and alike.

          TO add fonts for wordpress you may want to check this links:

          This one discusses a plugin for wordpress fonts:

          And this one discusses changing font on the stylesheet:

          Hope it helps you ZXT!

        • September 16, 2009

          Nicholas Z. Cardot said:

          ZXT –> I don’t think that you can put fonts on a blog except in images. You can only display fonts that people have installed on their computer unless you put them in a graphic.

          • September 16, 2009

            ZXT said:

            Nick, my blog I think is using a default font from WordPress (or my theme) and I want to change it. I think its a little bit small that what I prefer. I can see you are using a rather larger font here in your blog Nick. So what font is it and how did you change the default? Or the fonts are included in your theme?

            • September 18, 2009

              Ron Boracay said:

              I think you can edit those settings on the stylesheet.css of your theme. If I am not mistaken. I don’t use wordpress (as of this time) that much .

  23. September 11, 2009

    ZXT said:

    Okay I pick Fontin Sans. I installed anyfont plugin, now how do I install the font to WP?

    • September 18, 2009

      Ron Boracay said:

      Check your anyfont plugin, maybe, there is a portion there where you can put or simply change your fonts.

    Cool fonts, Nick. It sure is nice to change a few stuff sometimes. Fonts can get boring very fast sometimes. Thanks for sharing!
