40 Super Sleek Fonts for Clean Web Design

A few weeks ago, I showed you some of the best fonts for use in grunge style design. Creating grungy designs can be fun, but sometimes a site requires a cleaner approach, one where artsy design elements take a back seat to clear presentation of content. Typography plays a big role in this type of design. If you have been struggling to find the right font for your clean designs, here are 40 of them that are both clean and beautiful.

    i’ve always used Arial as a default font for folio word, now “blue highway” and “Steel fish” looks like a cool option

    Great list, but the typenazi in me has to point out that they’re typefaces, not fonts 😉

    I think Museo Sans is probably my favorite recently-developed typeface, which is odd, because I’m definitely not a fan of Museo.

    What the hell, Eurofurence is the name of a furry convention. And it seems like an odd coincidence because Euroference would be a better spelling.

    A decent selection, but it’s taken for granted that all of them are free. If one were willing to pay, I’m sure there’d be an even greater array of great greatness. It’s a shame that this sort of suggests that all fonts are free. People should be willing to pay a bit to achieve something more extra special.

    I like the Bebas font – reminds me of Trade Gothic, which is my 2nd favorite font to helvetica – i like this font too. buy i wonder whats that mean

    I love the fact that WDL offers a lot of free stuff.

    However this list… how can you leave out classics like Helvetica, Optima, Futura? Are they too obvious?

    @Jenny: I don’ think these are meant to be used as body copy, but rather in large sizes, maybe using sIFR or something similar.

    Nice list. I agree with JasonTheDesigner, these are definitely not meant to be used as body copy for web design, but probably better suited for large headlines (using sIFR) or traditional static graphics.

    Thanks for the nice list of interesting fonts that show with style. Every time I see cool new design what I get disappointed is that many of them have improper side bearings and kerning, making them look awkward, without first fixing these things using a font editor… I’ve done that several times, what a large volume of work. I think that’s why people like me tend to stick with more established ones…

    most of these fonts are not standard web fonts. wouldnt that be a problem for web design? how do you guys approach that stuff? is sifr really a good option for using a non std. font for your entire content?

    Hey thank you so much Henry Jones for selecting out the best fonts, it saves me lots of time searching it.

    You and this site rock.
