15 Best New Fonts, February 2023.

And so, every month, we put together this roundup of the fifteen best new fonts that have caught our eye over the past four weeks. Enjoy!

Dewey Decimal

Dewey Decimal is a modern take on the typewriter style of typeface. It’s proportional, with a large x-height and open counters, making it ideal for use on the web.

First Aid Kit

First Aid Kit is an interesting take on a typeface because each weight is a different style. It’s a smorgasbord of options that hands you plenty of bang for your buck.

Vangeda

Vangeda is a display font that’s perfectly on trend for the Art Nouveau revival that’s been gathering pace since last year. It’s ideal for branding or large print work.

Mint Grotesk

Mint Grotesk is a quirky sans serif with an extensive range of options, including stylistic alternatives and tabular figures. It’s a great workhorse and ideal for UI designs.

Ada

Ada is a contemporary calligraphic script font based on the Ruq’ah Arabic style. It includes Arabic and Latin characters and has three variations: sharp, flat, and round.

Sterlington

Sterlington is an ornate script with numerous flourishes referencing the grandiose style of the Victorian era. It’s crying out to be used on a Sherlock Holmes anthology.

Vinco

Vinco is a curvaceous serif with elegant strokes and a subtle organic flourish in letters like a, f, and y that reduces its formality, especially in the bolder weights.

Marige

Marige is a chunky serif with minutely flared terminals. Its confident but informal shape is excellent for editorial design or branding work.

Similar

Similar is a workhorse sans serif that looks pretty, well, similar to a lot of corporate sans serifs you’ve seen before, except for some lovely details that emphasize the baseline.

Ravera

Ravera is a brush script that leans into its hand-drawn look. It’s available in regular or texture, the latter of which adds a nice woodblock print effect for extra grunge.

Baste

Baste is a sans serif that was inspired by southern France, reflecting the softness of the shoreline and the edginess of cities like Marseilles.

Artusi

Artusi is a delicious serif font that’s inspired by an influential Italian cookbook writer. It’s available as a variable font, and the refined style is carried through all weights.

Parnaso

Parnaso is a high-contrast serif with fine details and a solid rhythm. Its italic is lively and playful. It’s ideal for running text, and its display variation is excellent at larger sizes.

Fitzgerald in Berlin

Fitzgerald in Berlin is a retro serif with contemporary details. Its shapes verge on the calligraphic, and it’s a solid choice for branding projects that need a touch of heritage.

Rockers Garage

Everyone loves a good brush script, and Rockers Garage fits the bill perfectly. Its clear rhythm provides excellent legibility, and the texture is nice and subtle.

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.
