30 Most Popular and Free Sans Serif Fonts

Sans Serif fonts are a good alternative to standard fonts used in web design. A custom font can make the difference between a good design and a better one, because custom is good, custom is the way to uniqueness. I`m sure you`re tired of Arial or Georgia. Now you can replace them with custom fonts. The ways to do it is simple and the most accessible ways are using Cufon, which is based on Javascript, or the CSS @font-face rule, which is a brand-new CSS3 rule.

Of course, making use of Javascript and CSS, Cufon and @font-face are facing with the same neverendless problems: cross-browser compatibility, especially Internet Explorer. But if you don`t want to support anymore old browsers, you can help others doing the same by using custom web typography.

Therefore, I want to present you 30 of the most popular and frequently used Sans Serif fonts, which are free to use for both personal or commercial projects.

A web developer with a crush on SEO. Having my skin in the game of website development and digital marketing for more than 10 years already, you might consider me an expert. At least this is what people call me. Honestly, I HATE that term. I prefer to describe myself as a person who takes action and risks. I test every hypothesis, document every step of the process, and implement what works.

    Thanks for your post. I think these fonts are the first resource for every graphical designer who is starting.

    This is a fantastic post! I’d been looking for the font that everyone has been using on printables, and I found it – Bebas! 🙂
