For the Love of Typography: 30 Free Decorative TypeFaces for Graphic Designers

No Picture

Typography in the world of web design is only still growing in importance, while in the world of print design noone doubts the importance of great type choices and craftsmenship. Every artist understands that this is able to either make or break your design, no matter how lavish or unique it looks. Harmony in design aesthetics is what really matters, and typography plays a crucial role here. There is no more powerful tool than a properly-selected typeface that will help to harmoniously blend text into composition, and at the same time, make its presence felt.

Whether you are up to creating an artistic design or business concept the font should exactly correspond to the theme, though you are not limited to using only one typeface. You can experiment with various font families, mix low and high caps, make advantage of bold and huge symbols, combine different font styles, or simply use expressive typefaces in contrast to background or other letterforms.

If you want to get the most out of the typography you should have a comprehensive pre-arranged collection and here you will definitely find something new for your collection. Here we have 30 ornamental typefaces that will spice up your graphic projects. This is a follow-up to our previous post covering 40 Free Futuristic Fonts.

when I took an Adobe Indesign class, I was acquainted with the idea (on the off chance that you can call it that) of Typography. From the beginning I didn’t generally think much about it, yet soon I began loving it. Presently I cherish lettering outline and typography so I’ve been attempting my hand at it a bit. Meanwhile I perceived such a variety of other individuals are beginning to join the lettering and typography development, and I’m sitting here feeling somewhat desirous considering “hey, I was into this first” sort of thing. :D
