A Little Retro Edge for this Week’s Free Font Friday

Finding the right font for a project is always a creative challenge. Then once in a while, you find a find and just know you have to find a way to use. That’s what I felt when I saw both of these free font picks for this week.

Badhead from the design studio of Ian Mikraz features stylistic alternates, ligatures, and ornaments for easy customization. It’s a script, but not in the traditional sense. In fact, it’s great when you want a script that’s more edgy than pretty. Download free from Pixel Buddha.

Another script I like is Variane Script from Indonesian design shop Workinstudio. It features fluid, handwriting-inspired script reminiscent of the 1950s. It’s great for adding a fun, retro style to your design, and would be perfect on greeting cards, advertising or promotions. Download free from 1001 Fonts.

Have fun with these two, and be sure to check out the rest of our Free Font Friday giveaways.
