With only a month and a half left in 2011, it’s hard to believe another year is drawing to a close. If you’re a long time reader of WDL, you probably know that at the end of each year we publish a series of posts that highlight our favorite freebies and resources from that year. It’s an excellent way to show you what you might have missed, and to give the designers and creators some well deserved recognition.

To kick it off, here are the best free fonts of 2011. There were tons of great free fonts released this year, so it was a difficult task choosing our favorites.

      Now that I see WESTON, I have to disagree, just look how slick and future-alike it is, I really liked this font, and I ran into it before actually.

    Great fonts, but Dock11 is not free. The font that downloads with the “free version” is a mashup of default fonts.

    I agree with Zeehan (whose tweet brought me here), but I’m now a big fan of Infinity. And I paid a bit for Wisdom Script, which I encourage others to do as well.

    No Open Sans? I would have thought that would top any free font list.
