Who doesn't love free fonts? And, who doesn't love to share them? Just type "free fonts" into Google and you'll get over 52 million responses. How do you narrow them down? Here are a few of my favorites.
One of the largest and easiest font resources to use is Dafont. Not only are more than 7,500 fonts available, but the fonts are broken up into categories. If you're looking for a handwriting font that looks like the style you used in elementary school, you'd simply go to "Script, School" and you'd get three pages of fonts to search. This is really handy when you've designed a piece of art and you can visualize a font style, but have no idea where to go to find that font.
For pure funkiness and grungy good lucks, the fonts at Misprinted Type can't be beat. Designed by Eduardo Recife, these free fonts are the ones I find myself turning to again and again. I'm particularly crazy about Dirty Ego and Porcelain.
A third favorite is The Font Garden. This site is just plain fun. It's specialty is handwriting fonts (the site offers the service of converting your handwriting to a font for small fee.) But what makes it fun is that each font is presented in the form of quotes and jokes. It's almost as much fun to read what's there as it is to download the gorgeous fonts.
So you've downloaded dozens of fonts. It's getting to the point you can't even find your favorites in Photoshop. What are you to do? Go to STC: Font Browser and all of your fonts magically appear on your Internet screen, ready to be reviewed and resized. It's so cool. I don't know how they do it; I'm just glad they do.
