Just My Type: Super Clean, High-Quality & Free Fonts

May 29th, 2012

Whatever type of designer you are, you want to be able to offer potential clients a nice variety of styles. In this current day, many designers and clients are looking for really clean, minimalistic design work. One of the main ways one can execute a very clean look is via your choice of fonts. Luckily, there are tons available, especially free fonts.

Not every one is going to be great for your project–quite frankly, there’s a lot of trash and there’s a lot of fonts that simply don’t fit. The font you choose, however, can have a great impact on the design. Good typography can often lead to good design, and the number one rule in typography is if you can’t read it, don’t use it.

Clean fonts are a necessity to any designer. Not just because clean and minimalist design is popular, but because cleaner fonts don’t have a ton of decoration and are therefore easy to use for different occasions. Below, we have a list of 25 fonts that are lacking a lot of decoration, but are high quality and of good detail. Did we also mention most of them are free for personal and/or commercial use?

Super Clean Fonts

Bebas Neue


Coneria Script




Great Vibes




New World

Open Sans Condensed

Ostrich Sans






Reznor Broken


Sports World

St. Marie 


St. Ryde



Some of these fonts are great for just headlines, and some of them are great for your body text. Whatever your usage, we hope you make the most out of them. Fonts can be a very important and intricate piece of your design–if you pick the wrong one you can end up losing your audience. Don’t make that mistake by using some awful, poorly put together font. High quality, and free fonts are hard to come by so hopefully you find this post helpful. Are there any other super clean or versatile fonts that you really enjoy using?

    Thanks for the fonts. There’s some really good ones in there.

    Lately I’ve been using a lot of cufon for my web fonts and now getting into more and more into Google Fonts as they are so easy to implement.

    Thanks for the great post!
