Created by Lukas Bischoff, a designer based in Germany, Artill is a nice little website that's aimed purely at people wishing to download free fonts. It's minimalism at its best, and some great typography to be sampled. You need to share the font in order to download it.
Typedepot is a nifty little type-design studio website that offers a number of clearly labelled free fonts for visitors to download. There are also great commercial fonts to buy. The project began as a sideline for studio founders Alexander Nedelev and Veronika Slavova, before they realised their true passion for typography and took it on full-time.

13. Free Fonts Project
A massive collection of free fonts is being shared by type designers as part of this project, which aims to make typography more popular and available for more people. The Free Fonts Project is curated by Jovanny Lemonad and the fonts are free for both personal and commercial use, without limitations. If you like what you download, you could consider making a donation – all proceeds go to the ON your heart charity initiative, which helps children in need.
Glukfonts is the site of Polish designer Gluksza, which offers some nicely designed typography. You can download free fonts and other design resources too.
An independent type foundry launched by Bulgarian designer Svetoslav Simov, Fontfabric includes a lot of paid fonts but its freebie section is also a great place to download free fonts.
16. Lost Type
Founded by Riley Cran and Tyler Galpin, Lost Type is a type foundry that offers you the chance to pay whatever you like for a font (and yes, it's possible to type in '$0' for a free download).
17. Font Squirrel
Want to download free fonts for commercial use? Then Font Squirrel is the place to head. The quality of the fonts is high, they're mostly @font-face compatible, plus it's got fun features like the Font Identifier, where you can upload an image with type and it'll tell you the fonts that match.
18. Ten by Twenty
Ten by Twenty is the impressive creation of Ed Merritt, a designer at UK web design agency Headscape. For his site, you can download a collection of fonts for commercial and non-commercial projects. His fonts have been downloaded over 1.5 million times over the past decade, and it's not hard to see why.
19. Google Fonts
Google Web Fonts makes it quick and easy for everyone to use web fonts on its site. All of the fonts are open source, so you're free to share and customise them for your own use, or collaborate with the original designer to improve them. And you can use them in every way you want, privately or commercially: in print, on your computer, or in your websites.
20. The League of Movable Type
GitHub project The League of Movable Type is a typographical revolution in the making and anyone looking to download free fonts should make a beeline for it. The very first free and open-source type foundry, it's a hand-selected group of typographers who've created an amazing set of high-quality free fonts for all to download, such as the popular League Gothic.
