Some fonts are bold, some are subtle … and some demand attention through distinct styling. This week on Free Font Friday we offer two font families to use in those eye-catching moments.
First, we have Merienda One by Eduardo Tunni. (In Spanish, merienda means afternoon snack, and this one is pretty tasty.) It features a swirling design with brush-style strokes that translate well in both regular and bold weights. It’s great for creating a distinctive typographic focal point. Try it on posters or flyers when you want an artistic touch. Download free from Google Fonts.
Next is Bebas Neue from Ryoichi Tsunekawa, a san serif font based on the original Bebas, which has become known among designers as “the Helvetica of the free font world.” This new iteration features four new weights (thin, light, book, and regular) to support the original big, bold Bebas and Bebas Neue typefaces. It’s great for making eye-catching statements; try it for headlines or on posters — anywhere you need a strong typographic focal point. Find it free at Adobe.
