Here at Creative Bloq, we're big fans of typography (opens in new tab) and we're constantly on the hunt for new and exciting typefaces - especially free fonts (opens in new tab). So, if you're in need of a font for your latest design or just like to keep a collection so you're prepared, we may be able to help out.

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

Henny Penny by Olga Umpeleva

Designed by Olga Umpeleva (opens in new tab) in 2012 for Google Web Fonts (opens in new tab), Henny Penny is an offbeat display font, named in honour of the fairy-tale character chicken Henny Penny.

Offered by independent type studio Brown Fox (opens in new tab), the team describes the design as "a friendly and playful decorative typeface. Its classical nature is successfully hidden behind its very informal structure: There is no common baseline, no common character size and no common slope of the letters. This makes the typeface very amusing. Henny Penny is a headline typeface for using in display typography. It may be used for children’s books, magazines and websites."
