Hello, and welcome back to Creative Quick Tips. My name is Justin Seeley, and today I'm going to be showing you five fonts that you can use in your next design project. The best part is, they're all completely free. First up is an interesting font called ARENQ. I love the openness of this font, and I think it can make for a great logo typeface or even used in some sort of signage project. You can grab it for free by going to DAFONT.COM/ARENQ.FONT. Next up, Borg. Borg is sort of an unusual font, but I could see it being used as a headline font on a brochure or maybe even a poster.
The letters are large and bold with some slight shape modifications. But it's still a very readable font. You can find borg by going to dafont.com/borg.font. Homizio nova is our next font and it's just a very simple sans-serif font. And I think works really well for body copy and even maybe a sub-heading perhaps. The font comes in two weights. And includes italic styles as well. You can pick it up by going to dafont.com/homizio-nova.font.
You know, I'm a sucker for a good script font, and redressed is exactly that. It's simple, elegant and has a nice brush stroke feel to it that I really enjoy. You can download redressed by going to fontsquirrel.com/fonts/redressed. Last on our list is Adam. A remarkably simple font with clean lines and a heavier weight. I see Adam as being a really versatile font with many possible applications. Most notably, I think it would work great in some sort of urban poster design. It's definitely one of my favorites on this list.
Adam is available from its creator by visiting his Behanced Profile at Behanced.net /SHRENIK18, that's SHRENIK18. Well, there you have it. Five awesome and free fonts for your next project. Try them out for yourself, and see what kind of creative ways you come up with to use them.
