Assalamu’alaikum. Setelah kemarin saya menulis “Best Free Script Font” insya Allahu ta’ala kali ini saya sharing “Best Free Script Font”, Font ini merupakan font-font terbaik yang bisa menjadi referensi dan mungkin semoga membantu teman-teman dalam mendesain. Selain itu font-font ini adalah family font:

  • Regular
  • Bold
  • Light
  • Italic
  • UPPERCASE
  • lowercase
  • Numeric
  • Symbol

Pada umumnya, font serif memiliki kesan elegant yang sangat cocok untuk desain-desain formal. Namun itu bukanlah standar baku, apalagi saat ini sudah banyak font-font serif bergaya display (disformal) dan insya Allah akan saya singgung ditulisan selanjutnya.

Vollkorn

Vollkorn came into being as my first type designing attempt. I published the Regular in 2005 under a Creative-Commons-License. Until the counter finally collapsed two years later it had been downloaded thousands of times and used for web and print matters. It intends to be a quiet, modest and well working text face for bread and butter use. Unlike its examples in the book faces from the renaissance until today, it has dark and meaty serifs and a bouncing and healthy look.

Crimson Text

Crimson Text is a font family for book production in the tradition of beautiful oldstyle typefaces.

There are a lot of great free fonts around, but one kind is missing: those Garamond-inspired types with all the little niceties like oldstyle figures, small caps, fleurons, math characters and the like. In fact, a lot of time is spend developing free knock-offs of ugly “standards” like Times and Helvetica.

Frank Ruhl Libre

Frank Ruhl Libre is an open source version of the classic Hebrew typeface Frank Rühl, the most ubiquitous Hebrew typeface in print. Frank Rühl was designed in 1908 by Rafael Frank in collaboration with Auto Rühl of the C. F. Rühl foundry of Leipzig. A final version was released in 1910. Many Israeli books, newspapers and magazines use Frank Rühl as their main body text typeface.

Playfair Display

Playfair is a transitional design. In the European Enlightenment in the late 18th century, broad nib quills were replaced by pointed steel pens as the popular writing tool of the day. Together with developments in printing technology, ink, and paper making, it became to print letterforms of high contrast and delicate hairlines that were increasingly detached from the written letterforms.

Spectral

Spectral is a new and versatile serif face available in seven weights of roman and italic, with small caps. Spectral offers an efficient, beautiful design that’s intended primarily for text-rich, screen-first environments and long-form reading.

Cormorant

Cormorant is a free display type family developed by Christian Thalmann. The project currently comprises a total of 45 font files spanning 9 different visual styles (Roman, Italic, Infant, Infant Italic, Garamond, Garamond Italic, Upright Cursive, Small Caps, and Unicase) and 5 weights (Light, Regular, Medium, SemiBold, and Bold.) Cormorant was conceived, drawn, spaced, kerned, programmed, interpolated, and produced in its entirety by Christian Thalmann of Catharsis Fonts.

PT Serif

PT Serif™ is the second pan-Cyrillic font family developed for the project “Public Types of the Russian Federation.” The first family of the project, PT Sans, was released in 2009.

The fonts are released with a libre license and can be freely redistributed: The main aim of the project is to give possibility to the people of Russia to read and write in their native languages.

Merriweather

Merriweather was designed to be a text face that is pleasant to read on screens. It features a very large x height, slightly condensed letterforms, a mild diagonal stress, sturdy serifs and open forms.
