8 Free Stylish Fonts From Typographers On Behance

I love Behance for many reasons. Firstly, the huge variety of design, illustration and photography projects online which are updated daily are a great source of inspiration and eye candy. Secondly, because of the free design “stuff” that is shared on the site. Earlier this year I wrote a post covering ten free display fonts from the Behance network, and I think it’s high time to showcase some more nice typography work. So, for your viewing pleasure and your font bag, here’s another set of lovely typefaces which are free to download.

Insanability is a custom font by Cory Angen. You can download it here.

    I love Behance.

    If anything, just for the fact that it highlights how wide the gap is between real pros and the cheap pretenders.

      Define cheap pretenders? Maybe if “cheap pretenders” charged $100 a font they can be real pros too.

        I wasn’t talking about typefaces or prices in particular, but the level of quality and talent displayed by a number of people on Behance.

        “Cheap Pretenders” are people who intend to provide design services although they clearly do not understand, or are absolutely terrible at it, therefore offer their services at rates which are below reasonable levels, as they do not know how much work is truly required when design is done properly.

        To illustrate: try looking for some of the brand work on behance (the ones appreciated or featured by people), and compare them to online “logo shops”.

        (and for those people who can’t see the difference – that’s a sign you shouldn’t be offering design services as well.)

    Hi David and XLCowboy, thanks for your comments guys.

    I agree there is a wide variety in the level of skills and services available on Behance, but that’s probably the case with any public site where people offer design or any other type of services. There are cheap pretenders in every business unfortunately and there’s nothing you can do about that. I would say just think about your own design skills and services and forgot about other people. Learn from the good ones and forget about the idiots.

    I think there is an incredible amount of skilled designers and illustrators on Behance and it’s definitely a site I find myself on several times a week.

    The fonts I picked out for this post were all free, a few of them from established foundries, like Fontfabric but I think its nice to give up and coming designers a mention too.
