39. Abril Fatface

Abril Fatface is a heavy font that takes advantage of very thin serif fonts to quickly create interesting contrast.

This free serif font was inspired by the various fonts used throughout the 1900s on creative advertising posters.

The thick strokes of each letter will make sure that your content catches the eye of basically any reader.

I would recommend only using Abril Fatface as a display or header font. Reading too much text that uses this font can become a chore.

Additionally, because it was inspired by real typefaces used in the past, you can use this free font to invoke some nostalgic visions of the past.

Abril Fatface free font 2021

40. Alex Brush

In stark contrast to the previous font, Alex Brush is a free handwriting font created by TypeSETit.

They took the time to make sure every part of this font was designed with legibility in mind. As you can see in the example above, it’s very easy to quickly read almost every letter.

The flowing lines of each stroke make it stand out from some of the other free fonts on this list.

I would recommend using this free font as a header font in creative pursuits instead of a more professional setting. For example, this font would work well on a fancy invitation but not on a hiring poster.

If you pair it with a simple sans serif font, there will be a lot of eye catching contrast added to your graphic.

Alex Brush

41. Archivo Black

If you need a big bold font, Archivo Black might be perfect for your project. Not only does it stand out from a lot of the other fonts, it’s still easy to read on a screen or in print.

Some of the other free bold fonts go for one or the other, but this font balances both ideas nicely.

So if you need to share a poster online and hang it on a wall, I would recommend using this sans serif font.

I really like using this free font because the weight and spacing of each letter is the same, no matter if it’s uppercase or lowercase.

The designers created this font to be used in headers and titles, so try to only use it in those scenarios. Otherwise your body text will be almost unreadable.

Use Archivo Black with a thinner serif font like Roboto to really make your text pop.

Archivo Black

42. Archivo Narrow

If you like the overall aesthetics of Archivo Black but don’t want to literally shout at your readers, try using Archivo Narrow.

It shares a lot of the same design characteristics and goals of its boisterous cousin, but is a little easier on the eyes. Additionally, the designers wanted this font to be used in both print and on screens too.

I would still recommend only using this free serif font as a header or for titles, it’s just a little too thick to be a body font.

You can pair it with Archivo Black for an interesting combination of header fonts, or pick a simple free sans serif font like Barlow or Roboto.

Archivo Narrow

43. Nimitz

This free all-caps retro font is inspired by vintage liquor labels and posters and comes in 3 styles.
