All sorts of stylized letter fonts have been designed for the page or the screen to leave an imprint in the minds of the reader or watcher. If you haven’t been impressed yet, you haven’t been looking. Here we offer a series of the coolest, understated letter fonts for your creative inspiration. No matter what cool means to you, you will likely find something remarkable and refreshing in the frosty, clear font styles we have collected here.
Like many of our themed font collections, these are available to download in TTF and OTF formats, some of them for free and others at a negligible licensing fee.
It’s amazing what you can do with a simple but classic color like white. A little imagination can go a long way. These stunningly diverse and versatile font styles were designed by different artists with just one theme in mind: cool.
Think clouds over a mountaintop; ice, snow, and frost; the moon; the refined clink of silver on chinaware; pale winter sunlight; a blast of peppermint. Even a simple bubble letter font can be made to look instantly fresh and a bit ghostly by emptying it of color and utilizing a simple chalky line art (see Cool Capital Letter Font).
The range of aesthetic you can achieve is incredible.
Whether you are a pro or a hobbyist, whether you are setting out the layout of a poster, redesigning your website, chalking out a menu for your cafe’s blackboard, printing a graphic on a T-shirt, making a homemade postcard, painting a large-scale mural on the wall, or setting up the title screen of your inspirational film, you can find a font style among these cool ones that will do the job for you perfectly.
Download any of these typesets and let them inspire you and others.
Note: Even if offered as a free download, always check for licensing restrictions if you are going to use it for commercial purposes. We won’t blame you. It’s instant pro.
The selections here are either set in OTF or TTF format when you download them, which is what you want if you’re going for high-res value. Once you import these fonts into your computer you can type in them and resize to fit your needs without any loss of quality. Others are available only as previews, which is great for you traditional calligraphy artists who can use them as typeset reference plates.
