Every day, we're running 'Font of the day (opens in new tab)', where we'll be posting the best free and paid-for fonts the web has to offer.

FS Clerkenwell from Fontsmith

Home to more creative businesses and architects per square mile than anywhere else on the planet, Clerkenwell – a central area of London – is a true design hub. Today, Clerkenwell Design Week kicks off and one of its long-standing residents, leading type foundry Fontsmith (opens in new tab), is celebrating with a brilliant typography offer.

The Fontsmith team created FS Clerkenwell in 2003, after designer Ian Whalley walked the streets of Clerkenwell, capturing the fragments of conversations he heard on the streets.

Now, for Clerkenwell Design Week only (19-21 May), if you purchase any of Fontsmith's London fonts – FS Hackney (opens in new tab), FS Pimlico (opens in new tab) and award-winning FS Millbank (opens in new tab) – you'll get FS Clerkenwell (opens in new tab) for free.
