I remember back in the day when there was no such thing as free fonts. Then I remember an era when most free fonts were completely cheese-ball. Lately, it seems like there are so many really beautiful faces that type-designers have been kind enough to offer for free.
I was recently searching out a script face for a project, and was shocked with the quantity and quality of some of the free script fonts I was finding. I thought I’d compile a few of the beauties I stumbled upon and share them with you all:
Lavenderia is a really graceful, swirling script face with an approachable personality. You can download Lavenderia for free (or a donation, if you choose) at the Lost Type website.
Euphoria is a friendly script face that mimics cursive handwriting with it’s partially connected, and partially disconnected lines. It is available in Opentype format and as a @font-face kit, and you can download Euphoria for free at FontSquirrel.
Arizonia is an energetic script, with slightly extended letterforms. It is also available in Opentype form and as a @font-face kit, and you can download Arizonia for free at the Font Squirrel website.
Kashan is a happy, gestural face, inspired by old-fashioned sign lettering. It is available in Opentype format and as a @font-face kit, and you can download Kaushan for free from Font Squirrel.
