How to Choose Best High Quality and Free Fonts to fit your Design

Fonts are base of every design, they can make or ruin your design. Gone are the days when all designers prefers to use web safe fonts only, today there is huge variety of free as well paid fonts is available that confuses a designer.

Every design is just like a occassion, as every occasion expect you wear a particular attire, every design expect you to use a particular group of fonts, although there is some sort of independence available here and you can experiment new things but sticking to your favorite fonts and using them everywhere as some people use to wear same coat on every occasion which was gifted to them by someone special, this policy won't take you anywhere
