But first here are the best 54 free modern fonts for 2018:
3 New Free Modern Fonts for 2018!
A straight-talkin’, industrial-strength typeface in three weights. Aaron Draplin and LostType Co-op present a gorgeous / thicc font for your designing enjoyment.
This font reminds me of Geogrotesque with a little bit of futuristic flair. Delightful details make this subtly expressive sans-serif font an amazing addition to our free modern fonts archive!
Slab-serifs can be perfect for very specific design scenarios – titles and subtitles for one that need a bit more personality without going too feminine for one – slab-serifs are nice. Old school business folks might not be able to stomach the personality, but I like it.
Junction – San-serif
A lovely humanist sans-serif, Junction feels a bit tightly wound in that the lowercase you and almost feels a little pinched; overall a nice looking font though. It comes in several weights, which I think makes it a lot more versatile.
Nexa Rust – Rough Slab Serif
I love slab-serifs. The letterforms are beautiful, and this one has alot of great characteristics. Throw in some weathering you have a solid modern font.
Royals – Wood-type / Vintage / Display
You may have read my article that extols the virtues of the font ‘Brothers’ for possible use in branding; here’s an alternative with a good amount of weight and girth. Which can come in handy in certain scenarios.
El Capitan – Hand Lettered
This font has a hand-lettered look to it. I love the organic feel of the shapes and height of the features.
Kino 40 – Blocky Script
Kind of in a league of it’s own, Kino 40 is a blocky script. Inspired by the old cinema handwriting style, apparently, whatever that is. I like it.
Bizon – Hand-lettered
Another hand-lettered font, it looks very intentionally rough, but san-serif is an interesting choice for a hand-made font. Nicely done.
Aroly – Geometric Display
This font has a fairly limited amount of places you could use it in my opinion because of how distinct it is, but I can imagine it being dropped back in a classy way, huge and as a watermark somehow.
Ikaros – Sans Serif
In a way, Ikaros reminds me of the font Raleway, in that it’s a bit of a fresh take on a sans-serif font without going too crazy.
Moon – Rounded San-serif
In school for graphic and web design we were charged with creating a typeface and it could be modified version of an existing one. I took my favorite (Proxima Nova) and rounded the edges and added some little extras. In this case, moon has the classiness of a Gotham or Proxima Nova and just added a nice friendly rounded aspect. I’m going to have to keep this one in mind.
Voga – Serif
Not to take the name too literally on this one, but I really do feel like using it in a light grey watermarked on white for a voguish fashion website would be great. That, or in white and large as a watermark on a photo. Well done, fairly dramatic serif font.
Choplin – Geometic Slab Serif
Another lovely take on the Slab serif. Try in all-caps.
Zona Pro – Sans-serif
I’m not sure I can even try out all these classy sans-serifs. This one definitely looks like a solid one, but might blend in with a hundred other ones I also need to try.
Madras – Sans Serif Font
What stands out to me about this font is the many weights. More along the lines of a helvetica, or lightly condensed helvetica, Madras is well thought-out, but simple.
Matchbook – Rounded Slab Serif
I suppose you don’t want me to wax poetic about slab-serifs again, but needless to say, this is a smart font with a lot of applications.“Free Modern Fonts - For Graphic and Web Design” Click To Tweet
Building – Deco Display
A pretty bold choice. I believe this font could be used at an angle, or dropped back as a decorative element, It’s hard to imagine this font as anything but a statement piece, but in that it’s great.
Big John, Slim Joe – Sans serif fonts
This reminds me of the font ‘code’ for it’s tight angles and the dramatic difference between the light and thick version.
