Free Font Fridays with an Old West Twist

Both of this week’s free fonts would look at home in a John Wayne movie poster. Pony up and get ‘em now.

We love a good throwback, and this week’s font choices both have a bit of the Wild, Wild West about them.

Silver Fake is really a contemporary design with an Old World edge about it. That’s why this slab serif font, designed by Russian designer Alex Frukta, would look equally good in both modern and retro designs. Download it at Gum Road. (Name your own price; if you love it, be generous).

Created specifically as a headline font, Corduroy by Ryan Welch is an all-caps serif font. It’s a sturdy slab serif that brings a real assertiveness and authority to your headlines, with a touch of old style. Download it at Behance.

Enjoy this week’s picks, and catch up on our previous Free Font Fridays. And we reckon you’ll want to sign up for our newsletter. Slap some bacon on a biscuit and let’s go!
