Often overlooked, the typography and fonts used on a website are major components of a successful business website design. Using the perfect font for a headline doesn’t just help to make it stand out and grab the attention of prospective customers; it can also connect with them as much as any other visuals and set the tone of your business. Using a type different from the typical offerings also makes your business website stick out in readers’ minds, which can really help boost your business.
We’ve compiled a list of unique free fonts that make headlines pop — in a good way.
An obviously fashion-inspired font, Coco is free for commercial use. Created by Hendrick Rolandez, a French graphic designer, Coco comes in eight versions and contains 209 glyphs. An excellent font for upscale businesses or e-commerce websites that sell luxury goods.
A free font for both commercial and personal use, Higher features a full set of uppercase letters and numbers. The font was created by Portugal-based designer Marissa Passos, as part of a project while attending the University of Porto. Great for edgier, yet elegant, business websites.
Format: OTF and TTF
Designed Portugese communication and multimedia student Pedro Lobo, Molesk is a free font with a distinct vintage heritage. The type design includes a full set of uppercase letters (no lowers), numbers, punctuation and some special characters.
Baron creator Frank Hemmeken, a graphic design student in the Netherlands, sites many alternative options and weights as perfect for headlines and posters. We agree and the free typeface would look great when used sparing to headline images or pages.
