I have been creating and selling handcrafted fonts now for 2 years (You can visit my store here and browse my Creative Market). So I know how much time and effort can be put into creating a 'good' font (200 hours+), and the decision to give a font away for free is a tough one. Whilst I have a few free fonts available and probably a few more to come, some designers go all out. Below, I have compiled 20 of my absolutely favorite handmade fonts from some of most generous designers. 20 that I think you should download.
Aleph Corp has created this beautiful and touching font where every letter is decorated with bright floral. The font is free to use for both personal and commercial uses.
New Handmade Free Font by Adrien Coquet.
Gagalin is a 100% free and handcrafted uppercase comic font created by Greek designer Lordanis Passas
Sketchetik is a MyFonts rising star font and was one of the top fonts for 2010. The light weight is available for free download. Designed by Ossi Gustafsson
Bizon was designed by Axel Bizon. Whilst the glyph coverage is very small, it's very nicely designed and quite unique.
Curely is a handmade, quirky serif font designed by Indonesian based studio Konstantine
Parker is a brilliant vintage inspired hand crafted font created by James Lafuente. It's the kind of font that is brilliant for accent words and slogans.
Interestingly, this is Anastasia Dimitriadi's first font. Such a brilliant font to kick off with.
