Sense and Sensibility in This Week’s Free Fonts

Staying current without looking studiously hip can be a challenge in the design world. This week we bring you two fonts that can give your projects an up-to-date look while avoiding that too-trendy look.

A modern, compact sans serif typeface, Dense Regular would make a great addition to a brand’s website or printed collateral. Created by designer and art director Charles Dauod, this is a truly contemporary font without a stitch of trendiness. Love the regular weight? You can purchase the thin and bold and complete the set.

Another font with modern sensibilities is Raleway, by the League of Movable Type. It’s a versatile san-serif family useful in both display type and text plus it features a clean and slightly rounded styling. The TTF download from Font Squirrel includes nine weights and matching italics.

Download them all and see what you can create; don’t forget to show the designers some love. Catch up on back issues of Free Font Fridays, and sign up for the Freeport Press newsletter to get them delivered to your inbox.
