The Best New Fonts of 2012 (So Far)

I love fonts! Hands down, scrolling through gobs of new fonts is one of my biggest time-killers (second only to Facebook). From a creative standpoint, fonts are a major driver of design for me. Often, I look for the right font prior to any other design element.

This collection includes some of the recent entries into the 2012 font foray that caught my eye. These designs range from clean sans serifs to gorgeous serifs and even some nice script fonts. Examining them as a whole (and comparing them to older fonts) could reveal some nascent typography trends.

Not all of these are free, but all of these new fonts are worth a closer look. Let me know which ones you add to your collection!
