While they may look deceptively simple, these two fonts were carefully crafted for easy reading.
There’s an art to engineering something that looks simple and clean. And that talent is evident in our two free font choices this week.
Created by Colorado-based typeface designer Steve Matteson, the contemporary-looking Droid Serif font family was designed for comfortable reading on screen. Its slightly condensed letterforms maximize the amount of text displayed on small screens, and ensures readability with vertical stress, sturdy serifs and open forms. It includes regular, italic, bold and bold italic, and pairs really well with popular fonts like Raleway and Roboto. Download it on Google’s Font directory.
Arvo is a geometric slab-serif font family that’s suitable for both screen and print use and is nearly monolinear to increase legibility. Create by Anton Koovit, it’s also available through the Google Font directory as a free open font (OFL); contains normal, italic, bold and bold italic styles.
