Who doesn’t love getting free fonts from DaFont? But sometimes it can be difficult to separate the wheat from the chaff.
Luckily we’ve scoured the DaFont collection and done the hard work for you, creating an edit of 10 fantastic fonts available on DaFont. And yup, they’re all free to download. Boom.
1. Lemon Milk
This jaunty geometric typeface from DaFont comes in six weights, making it ultra-flexible for design work. Try it on packaging and branding designs to make the most of its friendly, highly legible style.
Osgard Pro | Font Premium Font
Osgard is a font with a modern mix of old scandinavian runic carvings and the didot-like contrasts often found on Bodoni fonts. Add swirls to the mix and you have a powerful typeface indeed.
This rounded sans serif is DaFont’s nod to mid-century influences. This font’s quirky character would make it a great pick for video work or poster designs.
A serif with a bookish style, Timeless is true to its name. However, it has a distinctly modern feel, thanks to its pared-back, simple design. Use anywhere a traditional serif feels too formal, to give an air of easy elegance. (Thanks DaFont!)
NORD – Minimal Display Font Premium Font
Nord is a minimalistic typeface that works wonders when properly kerned to give it room to breathe. If you’re looking to break way with the traditional Open Sans and Helvetica, perhaps Nord is worth picking up.
Owing stylistic traits to Didot and Bodoni, DaFont’s Myron font is a more imperfect take on the modern serif. We love its old-fashioned sensibility and casual elegance. Use across luxury branding or fancy stationery to add a touch of class.
Looking for that perfect display typeface?
The search is over, as Hotel de Paris might just be the best free vintage-inspired display font on the internet. It looks particularly good set on logos and landing pages, where its chunky impact and slick texture can be fully appreciated.
Upgrade to the full commercial version for an additional weight.
Rinstonia Signature Premium Font
Rinstonia is a signature font, and its swirls and rhythm makes for an awesome simulated signature.
Another imperfectly perfect serif from DaFont, Wonderland has naive charm by the bucketload. Use for unique branding projects, or team with illustrations to highlight its hand-crafted qualities.
7. Livia Medium
Skinny and italianate, Livia Medium is a beautiful display serif that needs to be blown up big to make the most of its striking silhouette. Try using the font on magazine layouts or business cards to make a refined statement.
Chunky and assertive, Porter is a masculine sans serif from DaFont with retro influences. Destined for signage and logos, this display typeface looks way more expensive than it is.
9. Baron Neue
More elongated than Porter, Baron Neue has a similar retro-inspired vibe, but its condensed, slightly slimmer design makes it a better pick for when you need to economise on space. Nice one again DaFont…
Inspired by the credits, posters and movies of the King of Quirk, Wes Anderson, this sweetly jaunty typeface is our pro designers’ final top pick from DaFont.
DaFont is chock-a-block with novelty fonts, but Wes neatly treads the line between novel and functional. Use across any layouts that are crying out for a dose of quirky vintage chic.
