There Is No Getting Round These 40 Inescapable Fonts In 2013

December 6th, 2012

We are sure that you will not even try to live without the following collection of inescapable fonts in 2013. All these fonts carry more than the basic character set, though mileage will vary. German readers will find all the special characters, others have to check by themselves. We have included the information, whether the creators of the font allow commercial use. These things should always be double-checked beforehand anyway. So do not only rely on our findings. Furthermore we tell you the format the fonts come in. To help you determine potential usecases, we have also included our rating regarding apperance and style of each font. Designers won’t probably need that much, though…
