When I’m working on a project (especially web projects), I like to experiment with the typography. To add more to the project, I’ve put together something for you.
This collection of 22 fonts represents typefaces that I’ve been using in some of my projects. Free fonts that you can give some character to your projects.
MAGNA is a free typeface created in April 2012 and based on a “vintage” style. The typeface contains all main characters (from A to Z – capitals & lowercases are the same for the moment) and numbers (from 0 to 9).
As MAGNA, 47 is a free typeface created in June 2012 and based on a “vintage” style too. This typeface contains all main characters (from A to Z – capitals & lowercases are the same) and numbers (from 0 to 9).

Flyers and posters designed by Corruptdream (Vlad Poparlan) using an earlier version of the font made in 2009
A condensed script, inspired by San Francisco’s Mission District.
The first of the Mission Collection, Mission Script is a signage-lovers wet dream. Condensed, casual, sweet, and sincere. A celebration of the brush. Scripts rule.
This is a modular typeface family halfway between a 50s style sans serif and the range of numerical characters which most labelling machines use. These are seemingly contrasting concepts which lend themselves to the creation of an atypical font. The Blanch typeface family is comprised of 6 different font weights; 3 condensed weights and 3 caps weights. They are: Blanch condensed, Blanch condensed inline, Blanch condensed light, Blanch caps, Blanch caps inline, and Blanch caps light.
What distinguishes the new Intro free font from FontFabric is the strongly expressed geometric makeup and structure.
The basic letters of the Alphabet like “A”, “O” and “H” are built or based on principles of simple geometric forms – triangles, circles and squares.
In contrast to the Futura font which possesses similar styling, the Intro font preserves the characteristic sharpened edges of the “А”, “V” and “W” letters even in it’s boldened form.
“In Use” samples was designed by Miroslav Bekyarov for Fontfabric.
A gorgeous modern sans-serif with a very long neck. With a whole slew of styles & weights: Dashed (thin), Rounded (medium), Ultra light, Normal, Bold (race track style double lines), Black.
Code Pro is a font family inspired by the original Sans Serif fonts like Avant Garde or Futura, but with a modern twist. It is clean, elegant and straight-to-the-point. Code font is applicable for any type of graphic design—web, print, motion graphics, etc.—and perfect for t-shirts and other items like posters and logos.
Open Baskerville is an open source project to create a digital revival of the famous ‘Baskerville’ typefaces. To be more exact, Open Baskerville is based upon Fry’s Baskerville, a Baskerville derivative created by Isaac Moore, a punchcutter who worked for John Baskerville. The Open Baskerville font files are dual-licensed under the GNU GPL version 3 (GNU General Public License) and the SIL Open Font License (OFL).
Jura is a elegant serif typeface of narrow proportions with distinguishing details. The rounded, wedge shaped serifs offer a more contemporary feels than many serif fonts, while maintaining legibility even at small sizes.
This new release of the Jura family includes four fonts: Regular; Italic; Bold & Bold-Italic. Each variant now includes 241 characters (that’s 85 more than the original) and every glyph has been completely redrawn. There’s even a couple of ligatures in there.

League Gothic is a revival of an old classic, and one of our favorite typefaces, Alternate Gothic #1. It was originally designed by Morris Fuller Benton for the American Type Founders Company in 1903. The company went bankrupt in 1993, and since the original typeface was created before 1923, the typeface is in the public domain.
Junction is a a humanist sans-serif, and the first open-source type project started by The League of Moveable Type. We’re expanding Junction to include additional non-English characters. We also plan to expand Junction to include different weights, to make a complete family.

Metropolis comes from the the industrial movement of the 1920′s where skyscrapers where born. “Using a double line technique, I wanted to create my own Art Deco style font that represented this era. The result is a bold, bumptious typeface with a stolidly calm disposition.”
