It’s fairly common knowledge that the choice of font you use can have a huge impact on the tone of the site you’re designing. A clean & professional serif might be at home on a site that takes itself seriously, while a quirky sans serif might be a better fit for a site with a playful personality.

As Information Architect Oliver Richenstein famously wrote in 2006, web design is 95% typography – so getting the right typeface for your design is important. We’ve selected some beautiful free fonts that are just waiting to be added to your next design.
