As we kickoff 2018, it’s a good time to reflect on some favorites of 2017. As we all know, fonts are one of the most important pieces of any good design. These days you can find some truly fabulous free fonts. There are many sites showcasing the top free fonts of 2017 with different reasoning behind them. We checked out a few of these lists, looking in particular at fonts that earned a top spot.

The digital marketing gurus selected Hello Stockholm as their top pick.
It’s a fun and imperfect modern brushed script font. This font is heavily inspired by modern branding where you combine a beautiful script with a perfectly fitting sans serif font. See the entire list of fonts on the Hubspot Blog.
Last but not least is the pick from Behance, Selima Script:
This is fresh brush script–distorted and irregular, yet beautifully imperfect. Every individual character is unique and handmade. Vintage in style, yet seamlessly blending with the modern. See the entire list of fonts at Behance.
