When you are on a budget and need a great font to use for your logo there are some great options out there. Although I am a big fan of purchasing fonts from sources like MyFonts, there are free and popular options. A great source for free web fonts is Google Fonts. Google Fonts provides a library with hundreds of free fonts. You can download the fonts to use in your design software or use on a website.

I am a fan of Google fonts. But not all the fonts in the library are ones I would recommend you use. Actually please don’t use most of of them. You have to dig a little to find the gold. So instead of sifting through the library, I put together a collection of my favorite Google Fonts for logos.

Top recommended Google Web Fonts for your logo

Work Sans is a great flexible font. It is a sans serif that is a little playful, so your logo won’t feel too stiff. I also love Work Sans because it looks great on websites as well as logos. Work sans comes in 9 weights, but it doesn’t have italic versions.
