A great collection of best fonts from 2015!
Over the half of 2015 is already done. It’s time to look back to show you the best fonts of 2015. All fonts in the list below have been designed or at least published in 2015. In order to make it more clear, I have divided the list into five categories consisting of ‘Sans’, ‘Serif’, ‘Script’, ‘Hand-Drawn’, and ‘Specials’.
I plan to continue this collection of best fonts from 2015 until the end of the year. Of course the choice is based on my personal taste and what I found on the Internet. The sans serif typefaces are slightly in the majority that is probably also due to my personal taste.
Here it is, my ‘Best Fonts 2015’ selection!
