There are thousands of fonts out there, and finding the right ones could be difficult. I say this because I have one or two fonts that I use everywhere (yes, EVERYWHERE) just because I’m too lazy to go search for new fonts.

So I got an idea to compile a few free fonts every now and then so that I can change “my style” often. Here, I have listed out a few of them along with the download links. Go ham!

1 — BRUT

Brut Gothic is a free sans serif typeface. It is designed mainly for headings and titles. It is inspired by the chiseled street signage of a bygone era, with derivations from technical field drawing and Russian constructivism.

Its robust, masculine, angular forms make it ideal for a wide variety of projects, including signage, environmental design, and graphic elements. It includes multi-language support, 64 glyphs including symbols and punctuation, and no lowercase forms. This beautiful typeface was designed by Jacob Rabinowitz.
