5 Trending Fonts for 2014

Font styles and trends are always changing; and new font styles are always being created. In order to keep your designs fresh and current I will go over 5 fonts that will be trending for 2014. Although sans-serif is on top right now, I believe serif fonts will be making a comeback this year. All of the fonts I will list below are free for both personal and commercial use.

1. Open Sans

Open Sans is a great font for both headings and paragraph text. It is easy to read and a simple font, so it’s great for the current web design trends of simple & minimal.

2. Roboto

Roboto comes in many varients, both condensed & bold, as well as serif and sans-serif. Roboto is a great font for use with main headings like h1’s and h2’s.

30 fresh free sans-serif fonts

Sans-Serif is my favorite type of font and it’s mainly due to how clean it looks. Unlike Serif fonts, Sans-Serif fonts do not have the small projecting features (Serifs) at the end of their strokes. This not only gives the font a cleaner look, but as well gives it a more modern look.

Sans-Serif fonts are great for bold headlines, and more recently are replacing Serif fonts in body text. We’ve compiled a list of 30 fresh Sans-Serif fonts that are free for both personal and commercial use. Enjoy…
