Some fonts will remain in history for they encompass the even concept of branding in some cases. Today we can recognize these famous writing shapes and fonts from the distance and associate them with names that passed the test of time. Sometimes we like to use these fonts too, as they are funny, they carry a message and they can help us even to make a statement. How many times did you see in the street people wearing personalized T-Shirts bearing messages written in Walt Disney font? But being part of a brand, some of these fonts can’t be used for free or just borrowed, while others can be just downloaded with no problem. Today we will see ten of these famous free fonts and let our imagination run wild next time we want to compose a funny T-Shirt message or a nice ad on our web-site.
1. Walt Disney

5. Blade Runner
Amazing American author Philip K. Dick wrote a novel called “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep”. In 1982, Ridley Scott released a movie based on this novel that was alternatively considered poor, genius, having nothing to do with the book, having everything to do with the book and so on.

This is a very sensitive problem. The Buffy font is not only famous, it carries a history and a theory too. As people over the Interned would say, in my old days, vampires were fearsome creatures that did not glitter and were supposed to be slain, not married. Who is using and wearing the Buffy free font will definitely make a statement, as other more recent and sparkling fonts are free to download too.
