50+ Best Free Funky Fonts For Your Brand, Business or Design!

Start Your Business Sep 27, 2021

Our written communication has never been more important, and with the continued digitization of our lives, we're writing online more than ever. From text messages and social media posts to funky fonts for logos and book covers - what we write, and how we write it needs to not only be attractive but also accessible.

This is exactly why picking the right font is so important. Whether you're starting a new brand or business or simply need some ideas for a new graphic design project or advertisement, the perfect font can add value and character to your creation.

In the internet age, there is no dearth of free assets, graphics and fonts to incorporate into your new project. However, it is somewhat impossible and often overwhelming to filter through all the noise to get the perfect font that caters to your needs.

Bearing that in mind, we have put together a list of the best free and open-source funky fonts available on Google fonts so that you can choose the funky style and typography that works for you.

What to Keep in Mind When Choosing a Funky Font

The right font can make your communication more legible. But for many of us, fonts are a tricky thing to get the hang of. They may look good on paper, but not so much when they show up alongside emojis or at the end of a long paragraph.

When choosing a font, you should determine what your message is and who it's for. If the goal is to make a good first impression, like on a resume or business card, use something more formal.

Casual and funky fonts are best suited for more creative and informal projects. Of course, there are endless other factors to consider - the tone of the message, whether it's formal or informal; who you're trying to reach, and what you want them to feel when they read it.

Funky fonts are definitely fun! However, they should be used in moderation - or even when paired with a more formal font even if your message is particularly silly - but they're not ideal for most business communications. If you are writing long paragraphs in a font that is somewhat hard to decipher for the reader, they might get distracted by the noise and not be able to focus on the message that you are trying to convey. Funky fonts are great, but not if they take away from the main purpose - the content. Your content should always be the star of the show.
