Friday Free Font Find: Croissant (Web Font)

Transport your web design from the screen of your Macbook straight to the streets of Paris with Croissant. The font, which actually hails from Argentina’s Eduardo Rodriguez Tunni with the support of Goggle Web Fonts, boasts traditional uppercase letters and curved lowercase letters intended to mimic scrawling handwriting.

Croissant is a typeface inspired by the Parisian spirit, in the people and the landscapes there. The lowercase letters have smooth round shapes, and a nice long out-stroke to connect nearly every glyph, reminding the reader of elegant French handwriting. The uppercases have a classical structure and soft terminals that embody the spirit of this multipurpose typeface.
