20 Free Fonts Ideal For Logos And Headings

In this collection of fonts, I wanted to focus on a few that generally work well for use with logos and headings alike. Easy to read fonts that carry a nice strong appearance with just a hint of class. Whether you’re working on a clean design or something a little more decorative, one of these fonts will surely do the trick. To help you better visualize the use of these typefaces, I used each one in its own custom design.

League Gothic

When it comes to this particular list, it’s kind of hard to beat League Gothic. It works great for headlines and I’ve personally used it before on client logos. On the other hand, Bauer took me by surprise. I had never seen it before and I became an instant fan. Have a favorite or a suggestion? Let’s here about it in the comment section.

    I knew Harabara would be in this list. We just did a quick logotype using it at sovoho.com.

    Although the tracking/spacing for each letter was almost random. Kerning adjustments were done manually with each letter on it’s own layer. pain in the a.
