Cool fonts are a subtle and surprisingly easy way to make your presentation stand out.
What’s nice about fonts is that you only have to choose a font once in order to reap the font’s benefits on every slide in your deck. You can simply just set it and forget it.
There are literally thousands of fonts available, and for a reason: good fonts add personality to your slide, which can enhance your CREDIBILITY.
There is one small problem with fonts however…
Much like looking for presentation images, many people (including myself) find looking for new fonts to be OVERWHELMING. With so many choices you can easily waste hours browsing the many available fonts out there on the internet.
That is why I created a short collection of AWESOME FONTS that you can download onto your computer right now.
Simply click on the links of the fonts listed below, and hit the download button to start adding some emotion to your presentations. Make sure to download all the free fonts first. Then, if you feel like customizing even further, you should also consider some of the paid ones I have listed.
