Every single time I start a new project I am thinking of what fonts to use. Since nowadays most of my projects involve handwritten fonts I put together a list of free handwritten fonts – created by me and other designers, too – that you can download and use for free. Yes, for free means that you can also use them in your commercial projects! Enjoy ????

It’s time for another free font!
With every font, I learn something new. This time around, I did my first ligatures. I’ve included the 15 lowercase letter pairs I thought were most common. (I skipped over “uu,” because I don’t know about you, but I don’t type “vacuum” all that often.) (Note: I hadn’t included “cc” originally. But the more I thought about it, the more words I thought of with that double-c in them. So I added “cc” to the mix.)
This was also my first attempt at creating the letters in Photoshop, instead of in Illustrator. Still not sure which one I like better; more testing is required.
I’ve also added in a few little extras in the Private Use Area.
As always, this font is free for personal and commercial use (see included license for limitations). I’d love to see what you do with it.
17. SUNN – Free Handwriting Font
We wanted to create a handwriting font which would still be a little bit “clumsy” but with a strong construction underneath.
