One year after another we state that retro fonts remain probably the best-wanted typographic tool of many designers. The year 2019 doesn’t promise to be an exclusion, so we’ll pack your toolbox right at the beginning of it.
Vintage typefaces compose a wide variety of typographical solutions and trends. That might be the reason why they are so popular within the creative audience. Art Deco, American retro of 50’s-80’s, classic publishing fonts — all of trends and times impose various kinds of vintage what makes them so versatile.
Accordingly, this is the reason why we have tried to create our own list of the best retro fonts which would fit not just a single type of projects, but the majority of them, all different. Branding, stationery, apparel, web & app design may require a subtle touch of vintage to assert themselves — hope our improvised library will help you add it.
The selection actually features 40 positions of free typefaces distributed on Dafont, Pixelbuddha, 1001 fonts, FontSpace, Fonts squirrel and Fontriver. Many of them are also free for commercial use, but we remind you it’s good to check twice or contact the author before you place some lovely typography atop the mug or t-short series.
