2016 has been one of the best years for type design in decades. The lettering craze has pushed a lot of illustrators towards digitizing their work. There’s a ton of great font software available these days. And with typography now recognized as one of the most important aspects of a website, everyone wants in on the act.
In past years we’ve seen a few narrow trends dominating, but so far this year it’s very diverse. There’s fewer crazy experimental typefaces around, but also fewer staid sans-serifs; everyone’s meeting somewhere in the middle. Today I’ve compiled a list of the best free fonts that have been released, or received a major update, since the start of the year. There’s plenty to get stuck into, lots of really useful workhorses, and one or two playful inclusions.
Browse through, try them out, and as always if you use them in a project, let us know!
