Best Fonts for Word (And Where You’ve Seen Them Before)

November 9, 2022 Rent My Words Fonts , Microsoft Word , Writing

Believe it or not, Microsoft Word is packed full of stylish and cool fonts and typefaces—you’d just never know it because you’ve only used the program for basic word processing, right?

Well, what if I told you major blockbuster films, big-time musical acts, and designers from different corners of pop culture have used fonts you can easily find in Word for some of their biggest projects?

So, I’m sorry to burst your Calibri-filled bubble, but take a look at all that’s waiting for you under that mile-long font dropdown.

Think—what is the purpose of a font? To help your words stick in the mind of the reader, right? It’s certainly one thing a good font is supposed to do. Well, beyond where Garamond has been used out there in the real world (which we will get to in a second) Garamond is one of the best fonts in Word because it instills confidence in writers. 

I’ve heard this from others, and tweets like this confirm—there is something about writing in Garamond that just makes you feel like you’re writing the absolute best text ever. 

What’s your writing Hill I will Die On and why is it that Garamond is the best font? — Ally Ally Oxen Free (This Appearing House out now) (@AllyMalinenko) November 4, 2022

Now, in terms of where you might have seen Garamond used before, does this look familiar? As solopress.com notes, the Notting Hill font is in fact Garamond (and remember American Eagle Outfitters ?)

this notting hill poster makes it look like hugh grant is standing beside a window where a 12 ft tall julia roberts peers in pic.twitter.com/lwDK1JZtPr — Lou (@gothhorsegirl) March 3, 2018

“Thick and thin” is a great way to describe Bodoni as mentioned in this helpful tweet.

5. Bodoni Designed by Giambattista Bodoni in the late 1700s, this font – with its extreme contrast between thick and thin strokes – takes us back to a different era of typefaces. Though rather sophisticated, you can tell it wasn’t designed for digital display. pic.twitter.com/71MFycsvvq — The Cultural Tutor (@culturaltutor) October 4, 2022

A fancy and luxuorious font, Bodoni is used in more places than you might have originally noticed, but seeing where in fact it is used will cement the thought of it being an elite and upscale vessel.

I had no idea, but Vogue , Calvin Klein, Elizabeth Arden, and the movie Mamma Mia! all utilize Bodoni.

With a name like Futura, you know we are in for a bit of a modern ride, and straight clean lines confirm—Futura is that font.

First, though, I love this tweet because it mentions Garamond, which is already on this list, and because it is from someone who says they studied typography. So, while I and others might simply think Futura is cool (and love the fact that it is in Word), you have experts out here also giving the font praise.

I like serifed fonts, always have. For books, nothing beats Garamond for legibility and family flow. But my favourite font has always been Futura. Especially when weights are combined. Studied Typography, so my opinion is biased 😉 pic.twitter.com/nZw85WhkfQ — Cheryl Lawson (@CherylLCreative) November 6, 2022

Next, in terms of where you’ve seen it, The Hangover seems to be a popular source. Besides that, though, and what you have to appreciate about fonts, is that simple tweaks allow for words to take on a completely different look, feeling, and meaning.

As Solo Press points out , in addition to The Hangover, Futura has been used for The Help , Gravity, and other movies. As you can compare here, The Hangover poster gets its point across in all caps, while The Help opts for mixed case, with both working beautifully. Then you have Gravity which also uses all caps, but utlizes spacing for a, well, more spaced out feel.

Because of this, FUTURA is often used in many sci-fi IPs. For things like Destiny, Gravity & as Interstellar’s secondary type. Neat. pic.twitter.com/7qScJi1bUQ — Liam Wong (@liamwong) March 27, 2017

I went through a lot of this when talking about Star Wars fonts on Canva , but having a good space-age font on standby is always a valuable endeavor. On Word, that font is Eurostile, and it might look familiar if you’re a fan of the show Space Force . Never mind that the show is a parody, Eurostile has a place in all things space-age (as cemented by the tweet below).

The Andersons “helped to cement Eurostile’s reputation as the go-to science fiction typeface.” James Millner takes a look at the futuristic type used in the 60s/70s British TV series UFO, Captain Scarlet, and Thunderbirds. https://t.co/HprjpJbLjP pic.twitter.com/CggBhL0HR8 — Fonts In Use (@FontsInUse) November 16, 2021

Cooper Black

Without beating around the bush, Cooper Black is all over the place. I mean, Vox even has an article titled “Why this font is everywhere” with the subhead of “Cooper Black is pop culture’s favorite font.” That same piece goes on to mention the use of Cooper Black…

“Perhaps you know it from the Garfield comics, Tootsie Roll logo, or the Pet Sounds album cover by the Beach Boys. It’s called Cooper Black, and its popularity and ubiquity have never waned in the 100 years since it was first designed.”

Happy birthday to the Tootsie Roll. Keeping dentists and Cooper Black typophiles happy for more than a century. Celebrate by listening to our episode on display fonts that left an impression. https://t.co/OqHUr7WX5w #tootsieroll #cooperblack #typophile #podcast #popculture pic.twitter.com/rS2TN3Ydfs — TwoDesignersWalkIntoABar (@2deswalkin2abar) February 23, 2022

Just by me mentioning it here you’ll start seeing it more and more.

I don’t even have to write anything about Helvetica. ( Just Creative has labeled Helvetica the “most iconic font overall.”) I mean, if I did want to talk about how many organizations, movies, TV shows, etc. have used Helvetica, we’d be here all day.

So, let’s just focus on this list from Daily Synopsis , and look at how many times some form of Helvetica is mentioned on their list of “Fonts Used in Famous Logos.”

  • American Apparel – Helvetica Black
  • Caterpillar – Helvetica Inserat Roman
  • Fendi – Helvetica Bold
  • Jeep – Helvetica Bold
  • LG – Helvetica Black
  • Lufthansa – Helvetica Bold
  • NBA – Helvetica Condensed Black
  • Panasonic – Helvetica Black
  • Standard Chartered – Helvetica Neue 55 Roman
  • Subway – Helvetica Black
  • Target – Helvetica Neue Bold
  • WhatsApp – Helvetica Neue 75 Bold

The 40 Best Free Fonts Available on Google Fonts

Last updated on January 5, 2024

These are the 40 best free web fonts available on Google Fonts , in my humble opinion. They are all open-source and 100% free for commercial use. This collection focuses on typeface families from reputable type designers and foundries that contain multiple weights and styles. I’m purposefully avoiding single-weight display faces as they have limited usefulness in real-world design projects.

Wondering how to combine these fonts? Check out The Definitive Guide to Free Fonts for some recommended pairings.

Click on the image or font name to see examples of websites using the fonts in the wild. Click on the “Google Fonts” link to use the fonts on your website. The provided ZIP file downloads contain the latest versions of the font files to install on your desktop. The files come from the Google Fonts repository on GitHub —I regularly check the commits on GitHub to make sure the files provided here contain the latest versions.

* Note: An asterisk indicates the family is body text friendly, meaning it contains regular, italic and bold styles and has low-to-moderate stroke contrast, large counters, open apertures and a large x-height.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have any recommendations for pairing google fonts.

Clicking any of the font names above (or image samples) will take you to a page that shows examples of that font in use in the wild. This is a great way to gather inspiration and see the combinations that other designers have used. I also wrote an article sharing some of my favorite combinations with a focus on lesser-used typefaces. I have additional pairing recommendations in The Definitive Guide to Free Fonts , which also includes the closest free alternative on Google Fonts to every commercial font featured on Typewolf.

Can I use fonts from Google Fonts in commercial projects?

Yes. All fonts available on Google Fonts are released as open-source under either the SIL Open Font License version 1.1 or Apache License version 2.0 . That said, you should always double-check and read the individual license before using any font in a project.

Can I use fonts from Google Fonts in a WordPress theme that I am selling?

Yes. All fonts available on Google Fonts are released as open-source under either the SIL Open Font License version 1.1 or Apache License version 2.0 . Both licenses allow for redistribution with the requirement that a copy of the original license and copyright notice is included. That said, you should always double-check and read the individual license before redistributing any font.

Can I use fonts from Google Fonts in print?

Yes. You can download the ZIP files from this page (using the links located under the bottom right corner of the sample images) and then install the font files locally on your system like you would any other font. Some fonts are optimized for use on screens, so it’s always a good idea to print some test copies to see how they read on a printed page.

Can I use fonts from Google Fonts in Photoshop?

Yes. You can download the ZIP files from this page (using the links located under the bottom right corner of the sample images) and then install the font files locally on your system like you would any other font.

Do you recommend self-hosting or serving the fonts directly from Google?

I recommend using the Google Fonts API (the HTML / CSS embed code snippets provided by Google). This allows you to take advantage of cross-site caching, which means a user will already have the fonts cached locally in their browser if they have visited another website that uses the same fonts (and due to the popularity of Google Fonts, this is oftentimes likely). If you use self-hosting, every user will have to download the fonts directly from your server which is usually much slower.

What are your favorite script/handwritten fonts on Google Fonts?

A few of my favorite script fonts are Tangerine , Dancing Script , Bad Script and Sacramento .

What are your favorite condensed sans-serifs on Google Fonts?

Archivo Narrow (included in the list above) is really great. Roboto and Open Sans come in condensed widths as well. A few other nice choices are Barlow Condensed , Pathway Gothic One , Fjalla One and Oswald .

What are your favorite chunky display serifs on Google Fonts?

Abril Fatface is super nice (it didn’t make the top 40 list as it only includes a single style). Also check out Rozha One and Ultra .

What are your favorite blackletter fonts on Google Fonts?

Check out UnifrakturMaguntia , UnifrakturCook , Pirata One , New Rocker , Germania One and Fruktur for some nice typefaces in the blackletter (sometimes referred to as Fraktur or Old English ) style.

Do you have any other favorites that didn’t make this list?

It was hard to narrow this list down to 40 options, so here are some other contenders that didn’t quite make the cut: Zilla Slab , Overpass , Josefin Sans , Josefin Slab , Old Standard TT , Gentium Basic , Varela Round , Rajdhani , Bitter and Nunito Sans .

Also, here are some newer releases that are really great that I haven’t had a chance to feature in-use examples on Typewolf yet: Instrument Sans , Instrument Serif , Bricolage Grotesque , Roboto Serif , Newsreader , Plus Jakarta Sans , Familjen Grotesk , Azeret Mono , Spartan , DM Serif Text , DM Serif Display , Literata and Outfit .
