If you’re like me (and I’m counting on that), you’ve spent many a sleepless night scouring the web for free fonts that don’t suck. Undoubtedly, you’ve discovered that finding quality, free typefaces requires sifting through a lot of crap. Wouldn’t it be nice if someone did all that sifting for you?
Well that’s where Fontleech comes in. Every day we’ll tip you off to hidden gems from the free font world. We’ll be spotlighting the best foundries offering free typefaces. We’ll (hopefully) be bringing you interviews with some of the heavy hitters on the free font scene. We’ll be bringing you, uhhh… free font news.
This is a brand new site, but it's an idea I really like. (In fact, back in my younger days I used to run one of the larger free font archives on the Net, but enough about me.) Finding free fonts sucks. Most of the Google results for "free fonts" are dead end pages covered in advertising with no useful information. This site does the work for you and they hope to eventually have a large database of the best free font sites out there. We at White Hot Now wish them the best of luck.
