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 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 smörgåsbord of options that hands you plenty of bang for your buck.
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 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 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 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 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 is a chunky serif with minutely flared terminals. Its confident but informal shape is excellent for editorial design or branding work.
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 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 is a sans serif that was inspired by southern France, reflecting the softness of the shoreline and the edginess of cities like Marseilles.
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 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.
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.
