Your choice of typeface significantly impacts the tone of voice your designs adopt. Heritage, ambition, freshness, energy, utility and more can all be communicated with the right font.

15 Best New Fonts, January 2023.

And so, every month, we put together this roundup of the 15 best new fonts we’ve found on the web in the previous four weeks. Enjoy!

Bulk

Bulk is an awesome typeface that challenges how letters are constructed. Bulk uses heavy, block-shaped outlines and delicate linear ‘cuts’ to form its letters. It’s an excellent choice for posters, giant typography, and branding.

AW Conqueror Stincilla

We’ve featured AW Conqueror before, and AW Conqueror Stincilla is a delightful stencil variation on the form. It produces some beautiful shapes and is ideal for luxury branding, editorial work, and even as a display face.

Vesterbro Sans

Rarely do we see a sans-serif that we can honestly describe as refreshing, but Vesterbro Sans falls into that category. It’s expertly executed with simple details adding to the overall feeling of effortlessness. It’s also available as a variable font.

Miau

Miau is an awesomely over-the-top that is barely legible. The ribbon-like letterforms are packed with energy. It works best when used in small doses.

Rikna

Rikna is a workhorse of a slab serif that works well at body font sizes and has enough detail to be interesting at display sizes. It’s a solid all-around choice for a project that’s serious but needs a touch of human warmth.

Austerlitz

Austerlitz is a family of pseudo-didone typefaces. It’s a flexible and highly usable family that works well for serious publications, digital, and print. The refined rhythm means that Austerlitz will work well in some branding projects.

Gramma

Gramma is a modern-looking sans-serif. Gramma has a distinctive style of terminal that creates visual interest at larger sizes and helps the letterforms keep a clean outline on screen at smaller sizes. It would make a great brand font.

Miracle Fairway

Miracle Fairway is a thick-stroked display typeface with tapered serifs that give the overall design a sense of motion. It’s a great option for logo design.

Vitrine

Vitrine is a high-contrast sans-serif that’s great a large sizes. It comes in nine weights, but the semi-bold, bold, and black have the highest contrast and, as a result, the most character. It works well as a display face and for logos.

Kelyon

Kelyon is a graceful display face with medieval and Art Nouveau influences. It has numerous alternates. It works best at display sizes and is a good choice for editorial design.

Fit Devanagari

Fit Devanagari is a highly stylized typeface, designed as a companion for the Latin typeface Fit, that can be used at any size. If you need to fill a particular sized space, then Fit allows you to do so elegantly.

Precise Sans

Precise Sans is a tech-feeling sans-serif with a range of weights and (eventually) two italics. It’s an excellent choice for UI design, where clarity trumps character, but you still want a little personality. It’s still in beta so expect changes.

Mistont

Mistont is a beautiful serif font with elegant curves and graceful ligatures. It’s an ideal choice for branding lifestyle products.

Exergue

Exergue is a stunning serif typeface that uses flared terminals to match its serifs. The result is blocks of text that feel unexpected and familiar at the same time. Exergue is an excellent choice for extended text passages where it adds character while maintaining readability.

Manier

Manier is a very usable typeface with angular wedges and generous, modern proportions. It comes in six weights with matching italics. It’s ideal if you’re looking to infuse your design with some confidence.

Ben Moss

Ben Moss has designed and coded work for award-winning startups, and global names including IBM, UBS, and the FBI. When he’s not in front of a screen he’s probably out trail-running.
