Resource Spotlight: April – Dafont

For our April resource spotlight we take a trip to the world of fonts and typeface. And if you are a designer, you know the challenges of finding the perfect fonts. You may also know that some fonts and licenses to use fonts can get pretty expensive. That’s why this month we’ll focus on a resource that provides free fonts for personal use and commercial use.

DaFont is one of the best solutions for finding quality fonts that are free to use. When you go to their website you can search fonts by name or keywords. There is also an option to search fonts by different font characteristics. You can also preview font text as well in the top menu.

This is the important part. You can search fonts by license type. On the top menu select “More Options” You can choose between which type of usages are allowed for each fonts. “Free for personal use” should not be use for commercial use, but “100% free” and “Donationware” can be used for commercial projects.
