Free Font Collection: Clean Fonts
I have a confession to make - I'm sort of a font hoarder. There I said! Admitting it is the first step to recovery. But seriously, being a graphic designer, I love trying out new fonts on different projects I'm working on and discovering how I can use them. I'll experiment with these new font types on logos, vector graphics, flyers... You name it. I'm constantly scouring the internet for new free fonts I can add to my growing collection.
There are so many different types of fonts: handwritten, serif, sans serif, retro, elegant - the list goes on. With so many different font types, it can seem a little overwhelming. To make this is as simple as possible, this post will focus only on clean fonts. I've compiled a list of 18 free clean fonts you can download and try out right now. Below are the links to all the sites where you can download them. Enjoy!
