Top 5 Best – Free Fonts for Creative Headlines

New fonts are always fun and sometimes helpful in sparking creative thoughts. The other good thing about these 5 I have hand picked for you is that they are also free font downloads, and in some cases free to use commercially. Double win. Enjoy and be on the lookout for the next top 5 post!

The first font up is Ostrich Sans by Tyler Finck (awesome portfolio website by the way, check it out http://www.tylerfinck.com/). He created this font for The League of Moveable Type. The free download comes with a bunch of styles and weights for your designing pleasure.

Simple font design from Ben Suarez named after his extraordinarily cool grandfather, Vincent. Note from the author (via dafont.com): Intended to be used as a title font. Named after my grandfather who drove a 76′ Chrysler Cordoba and smoked out of an old wooden pipe. He was rad. I made this guy in 24 hours on a super limited type program so my apologies for the kerning issues. I’d love to see how you guys use it so please keep me posted!

Last but not least for this round is Rex from Font Fabric. Amazing for headlines with three weights included. The inline weight is particularly cool.
