Over 75 Free Fonts That Will Make You a Better Designer

Over 75 Free Fonts That Will Make You a Better Designer

Although often overlooked, fonts are just as important as the images and colors that we use to create beautiful things. Most people never consider the weight that the typeface carries – even in the simplest designs. For years we’ve been trained to only browse through the limited collection of fonts found in Word. The fact is, there are thousands of free fonts available that can be downloaded to use anywhere you please.

Using Free Fonts

I’ve scoured the web to create a shortlist of the best free fonts out there. I’ve personally used each of these fonts, so I can assure you they’re top notch! And if you don’t like any of these? Well, I doubt that, but if you’re looking for more check out these apps.

All of the following 75+ fonts are free in one way or another. Most of them offer a full commercial license. This means you can use the font just about any way you want. Some fonts, however, may only offer a couple of demos from the complete font collection. For instance, if they have 12 fonts total (light to bold to heavy), they might only let you use the light version for free and offer the remaining versions at a small cost.

Using the right fonts can completely change a design. This is one of the easiest ways to take even the simplest designs to the next level. There are countless fonts out there, all fighting for your attention. I hope this collection will prove to be as useful to you as it has been for me.

                                                                                                                                                                In today’s fast-paced and never-ending busy world, we are overwhelmed by tasks that need to be completed by tight deadlines. With so much technology it is difficult to find the right tools to help boost our efficiency. And, many tools get obsolete so its essential to stay up-to-date to know when you will have to make adjustments to these tools. Independently of where you work, there’s a good chance that you have to be working on a PC or a laptop.

                                                                                                                                                                Do you are feel like you do not have enough time, or cannot accomplish much as of late? It is recommended to take a step back and look at the big picture. Also, you want to explore new and innovative ways to improve productivity.

                                                                                                                                                                In this article, I outline 11 features and apps within the Chrome browser that can help you do just that.

                                                                                                                                                                Minimizing Tabs

                                                                                                                                                                Let’s face it we all have more than a dozen tabs opened on our computers. One neat trick to still keep most of them open is to turn them into pinned tabs. On Google Chrome you can right-click the tab and select “Pin Tab” option. This turns the tab into an icon enabling you to continue multitasking.

                                                                                                                                                                Pinning a tab anchors the tabs on the left of your toolbar; a great benefit of the “Pin Tab” feature is that you can’t close these tabs accidentally since the “X” disappears after pinning them.

                                                                                                                                                                Incognito Mode

                                                                                                                                                                Google Chrome is a very easy-to-use and intuitive. But, Google does collect our browsing data; so to remedy this, you can use Incognito Mode. This feature does not keep your browsing or download history. You can enable or access it in three different ways:

                                                                                                                                                                Advertising

                                                                                                                                                                1. Press Ctrl/Command+shift+N
                                                                                                                                                                2. Select File Menu and choose New Incognito Window
                                                                                                                                                                3. Download extension New Incognito Window

                                                                                                                                                                This feature is very handy if you’d rather not have your browsing history stored and utilized for future advertisement or suggested pages.

                                                                                                                                                                Save Webpages as PDF Files

                                                                                                                                                                Have you ever browsed interesting or important information and then forgot to bookmark or save it in “favorites”, making it impossible to find again? Chances are you have done this on a number of occasions.

                                                                                                                                                                Thankfully, there is an easy solution. You can save webpages as PDF files. On your keyboard, press control/command+p and you will be able to save webpages as PDFs.

                                                                                                                                                                Open Recently-closed Tabs

                                                                                                                                                                Ever had dozens of tabs opened and all of a sudden your browser shuts down? It has probably happened to all of us. You can easily recover all of your tabs using two approaches. Don’t panic if this happens because there is a workaround and solution for it.

                                                                                                                                                                One is by pressing Ctrl/CMD+Shift+T.

                                                                                                                                                                The other approach is to click on the three vertical dots on your browser and hover over “History”.

                                                                                                                                                                Advertising

                                                                                                                                                                Solve Mathematical Problems

                                                                                                                                                                Google’s Chrome browser doesn’t just search for relevant and updated information. It is also capable of performing some mathematical problems. Within the omnibox (Chrome’s address or URL bar), you can perform mathematical exercises.

                                                                                                                                                                For example, if you are struggling with percentages you can search 20 percent of x amount and it will instantly provide a result. Pretty handy, right?!

                                                                                                                                                                Play Media Files

                                                                                                                                                                Are you frequently met with difficulties when playing or watch a video files? Well, once again Chrome comes to the rescue. You can can listen or play videos from all sorts of movie or music files (mp3, mp4, .mov, .mkv, .ogv, .webm, .wav, etc.) by simply dragging the file into the search bar.

                                                                                                                                                                In addition, you can view images, PDF files and Microsoft Office files, too.

                                                                                                                                                                Navigate Swiftly Between Tabs

                                                                                                                                                                With all of those tabs opened comes great navigation responsibilities. Rather than clicking through every tab, you can use shortcut keys like Ctrl+Tab to navigate all of the different tabs. Also, you are able to navigate to the first tab by pressing Ctrl-1, Ctrl-2, and so on. If you want to switch to the very last tab, press Ctrl-9.

                                                                                                                                                                Stay Focus(e)d

                                                                                                                                                                Computers nowadays have awesome capabilities.

                                                                                                                                                                Advertising

                                                                                                                                                                Sometimes we like to get work done, but let’s face it, we’re all human. We sometimes procrastinate by visiting a website we really like, or maybe take a break with watching a flick on Netflix, a video on YouTube or browsing Facebook.

                                                                                                                                                                With Chrome’s StayFocusd extension, you can truly stay focused and get more done in less time.

                                                                                                                                                                This extension naturally helps you stay more productive by limiting the amount of time you spend on websites. You can set the time and it will automatically block those sites after a certain period.

Plus, with video you will be able to easily walk people through a process, and you can use it to create simple how-to videos.

                                                                                                                                                                No matter what your level of responsibility is at your job, Google Calendar is another essential resource to have at your fingertips.

Once you add the extension to your browser, you can check for upcoming events with a single click without leaving your current page.
