The FontFeed covers the issue of Free Fonts

I have covered the issue of free fonts a number of times on my blog and on Twitter. In fact, just a week or so ago I tweeted to “treat free fonts with caution, and that if you use a poorly designed free font and you are being paid by the client, you are doing yourself and the client a great disservice.” I would go as far as saying that if you are being paid for the logo and you use a poorly designed free font, you are not acting responsibly.

Choose free fonts carefully and use them sparingly. The exceptions of course are the free versions of top grade commercial fonts, used as a great marketing tool to hook you in. Font’s like Museo, a classic example where a free font is the exception.

Glad this post has been made available by such a respected company as FontFeed.
