Polly Want a Free Font?

Looking for a good, clean and concise serif font for your web or print design challenges? These two free fonts deliver.

Poly was designed by Nicolás Silva as his final project for the postgraduate certificate in typeface design from the University of Buenos Aires. A web font with ink straps and glyphs and a strong vertical emphasis, it’s designed to be highly readable even with cramped tracking. Download it at Font Squirrel.

The right amount of stroke contrast and wedge-like serifs are what make Ledger a highly readable font. Russian typeface designer Denis Masharov created it for maximum readability in less-than-favorable situations like newsprint and laser printed documents. Download it at Google Web Fonts.

Enjoy these picks, and catch up on any Free Font Fridays you might have missed. And as always, show the creators some love when you download these goodies.
