Hi!

Just to let you know that Renner* has been updated and now has more weights (18 fonts in total), and in the heaviest of them, it has an alternate for the lower case "a".

Best regards!

From the website: “You don't have to pay anything if you don't want to! You can always come back and pay what you think it's worth.”

You only get the new variable font version of Renner* if you pay US$10 or more, but the static version is still available for free.

I am a bit puzzled, though, about charging at all, as that seems to violate the Open Font license which prohibits charging for the font itself.

But the updated version isn't.
Besides the link points to the paid version , it's donationware and in my opinion not considered free
The static is there but it isn't reached easily

Only the static version is released under the SIL OFL. The variable font is separate.

The free version has been updated to include nine weights (Regular and Italic, for a total of 18 fonts). Although it is unarguably donationware, downloading it for free simply requires you to put 0 in the ‘Amount’ box before submitting the form on the download page.

Sorry for the misunderstanding!

Yeah, you can download the non-variable-font version for free, just by putting 0 in the 'Amount' box.

Best regards!

Also, in the Font Squirrel link, the 9 weights with italics version is available (the non-variable-font version of it).

Best regards!

Great! I been looking on google for some fonts for a catalogue (mainly for print but also available in the web). Catalogue of products, with references, attributes and small descriptions.

I will check your list, but I would love to hear some recomendations for my purpose.

Thanks!

ps: anyone knows if the MOSK font is free for commercial? Can't find valid information about it.

I would recommend you to try Inter UI:

Seems nice.

I'm also trying the Source Sans Pro. I will present these solutions and see. Thanks!

Source Sans Pro is one of my favourites, but for small sizes, Inter UI and Open Sans are better suited.

Also, as far as I know, Inter UI is currently under constant development.

Hi there!

Two updates:

  1. Renner* has changed its name to Jost*, but basically, it's the same font (you can still get it for free or you can get the variable version for $10 USD).
  2. Next is anorther great alternative to geometric Typefaces like Futura or Gilroy, called Objectivity. You can download it for free here. Also, the designer accepts donations, here.

Best regards!

Hey guys, hey Mithferion!

Thanks for putting these together, it's quite the collection!

Not sure if everyone is familiar with it, but just yesterday I posted about FontBase in another thread.
FontBase is a basic font-management software wich offers a free version.

One cool thing I noticed is that right from the start it has the Google font library linked into it's code
or something like that, so you can activate them without even visiting the side.
I thought that's pretty clever! :6_smile:

Besides that, with a growing library like this you might want to organize the fonts more specific maybe
by topic, different projects, names or groups. Or maybe you don't need all the bazillion fonts activated
at the same time which may slow down you machine and is pretty distracting.

Well, I just thought I'd leave this here – try it, it's free! :10_wink:

Have a nice day!
MrDoodlezz

Just to let you know, that Inter UI has been updated to the 3.0 version, which means:

  • Besides being a traditional Typeface family, it's a Variable one too.
  • It has more weights, so now it has the following: Regular, Medium, Medium Bold, Bold, Extra Bold and Black, with corresponding Italics.
  • Refined glyphs and kerning improvements.

Best regards!

Unfortunately Dentra is not free, it's $15.

Thanks for the list. You can't have enough fonts, LOL.

@MrDoodlezz

 

I use Suitcase fusion 8.

Maybe it was a temporary offer. Too bad, I will delete from the list.

Thanks for pointing it ou!
