In this post I am going to list what I feel are some of the best fonts to have in a designers toolbox and – they cover a good diverse range but for the most part they are classic, ageless fonts. Some of the fonts listed may well already be installed with your operating system otherwise they are available to buy (click on the names).
You might also be interested in my other post, Design Inspiration: free fonts, that lists a number of recent “new kids on the block” of free and free for personal use font downloads.
At the very end of this post are some further resources too.
Ladies and gentlemen – the fonts…
