It's quite rare to see such an exhaustive typeface family offered up for free, such as this beautiful Kitten Free Font.

There is a considerable restriction however in it's use, and that's this is for Personal Use Only, NOT intended for Commercial Use.

Kitten was a collaborative effort: this multi-weight script family designed by Italian Art Director Cosimo Lorenzo Pancini, at Studio Kmzero, (who has a number of other very stylish free fonts available on his Behance site), with the cute cat illustrations, by Isabella Ahmadzadeh, a freelance graphic designer also from Italy.

Where to Download Kitten Free Font

You can obviously see Kitten on Behance, and that's where you'll find the Download link.

About Kitten Free Font

Behance: Kitten is a multi weight script family with a sign painter aestethic and a wide range of variants, alternates and ligatures designed by Cosimo Lorenzo Pancini, with cat dingbats designed by Isabella Ahmadzadeh.

Kitten curvy, bold shapes in the regular weight are perfect for logo design and display use, while the clean lighter weights, as well as the Monoline and the condensed Slant variant, are perfect for longer text blocks.

Kitten covers over 40 languages that use the Latin alphabet, with a full range of accents and diacritics.

It comes in five weights and has three style variants: Regular, Slant and Swash. Kitten makes full use of Open Type ligatures to avoid letter clashes in uppercase and provide alternates and a wide array of ligature characters for a more handmade, natural look.

Swashes can be accessed through glyph palette or by typing one to six underscores after the letter. A space followed by one to eight underscores produces different cat silouhettes.

FirstSiteGuide: Blogger Sans draws inspiration from the clarity and legibility of the popular font Dosis with an additional support of the lost Cyrillic languages. The bolder weights are lighter and softer. The following elements (-b-d-h-k-p-q-y-) are shorter, thus the headlines and subheads could be put in the dense line spacing. In addition the outline of the Blogger Sans is more smooth with better eligibility.

Kontrapunkt Free Typeface

Kontrapunkt 'Bob' Free Font for Download by Kontrapunkt

Kontrapunkt 'Bob' is a sexy, and quite classy, free slab style font designed by Kontrapunkt, a branding agency based in Denmark and Osaka.

I love the name as well, Bob. Reminds me of Black Adder… BoB! BoB?

Bob has some seriously smooth lines, fullness of form and some rather unique styling going on with some of the letter forms. Indeed, some of the letters, on their own, look like they could be form an altogether different style of font, like Sans: just look at that capital G for example, love it!

As far as free fonts go, I'm mighty impressed with Bob!

picjumbo - Free Stock Photography - Royalty Free Photographs, by Victor Hanacek is another great free stock photography website offering:

"totally free photos for your commercial & personal works"

I'm really liking the kindness of photographically inspired people at the moment for making the fruits of their love available to us, for free.

What I have also found with these free stock photography sites, like: Unsplash, Gratisography and Picjumbo is that the photographic style is so much more aesthetically appealing, at least to me, than many of the major photostock libraries.

I have already used photographs from both UnsplashGratisography in the presentation of some of my recent logo designs to clients, and have already seen a few from Victor that I will be using shortly.

The photographs are 3888px wide, so plenty big enough for most digital work.

Viktor Hanacek: "You can use them for many different things. For webdesign, sliders, apps, backgrounds or templates for sell. You are not limited. One thing I would really appreciate is an attribution. It’s up to you, it is not necessary but greatly appreciated! It’s easy — when you share Picjumbo to other people, I can keep making more and more photos.

Go ahead and take a peek, and give Victor your support by signing up to his newsletter, Twitter account and/or even, maybe, donate a little if you end up using some.

Carlos de Toro emailed me with a lovely little note and a link to his website, more specifically a link to his gorgeous typeface, named Born. Carlos has clearly spent a lot of time, and put in a lot of love in the development and creation of his typeface, yet with all that Carlos is making Born a free download, but donations ARE obviously warranted I think.

In his words:

Carlos de Toro: "Born is much more than a typeface, it’s also a story; The one of my 2013. A story about moving to the big city, the result of meet great people from all parts of the world and their cultures too, the result of talks in classes, bars and trains… the result of sharing moments, experiences, knowledges… Born is the result of all these experiences and people: and now I’m sharing with you this piece of my story."


About Born

Born is a humanistic typeface that is based on traditional calligraphic forms, but with some new features in its endings, strokes and drops, that provide a more open, fresh and actual look. It also has a big X height, so it offers a high legibility even at small sizes.

Born typeface, born in Barcelona city at early 2013, bears the name of one of the most picturesque Barcelona districts, on the shores of the Mediterranean takes together the old and the traditional, and also the multicultural stuff and new trends, blending these in its narrow and winding streets, creating a symbiosis between tradition and modernity. This is a Mediterranean type, which it’s open to new times.

Born Includes

Regular Born includes a total of 262 glyphs: Uppercase, Lower case, Alternative glyphs of the above ones, normal Ligatures, Uppercase numerals and symbols and punctuation marks.

Not sure anyone would need any form of icon font if they had the amazing Font Awesome 2.0 at their disposal. Gregory Loucas (@GregoryLPaul) has done an incredible job with this Font Awesome icon font set, and what's more it is free to download.

What an incredible selection of finely crafted icon fonts, and all at that perfectly formed smaller size.

Gregory has designed these icon fonts with the Twitter Bootstrap framework in mind, but there is nothing stopping you using these for any website design. I will be applying these to ijc just as soon as I can.

Gregory is also asking you to suggest other fonts, if you can find ones that are missing. I for one have already requested: Dribbble and Behance. :0)
