Fonts are a designer’s best friend. They add personality to our designs and enable fine typography to elevate the quality of our output.

15 Best New Fonts, April 2023.

Every month we put together this roundup of the best new fonts we’ve seen in the previous four weeks. In this month’s edition, there are multiple revivals, all with a subtle modern twist. Enjoy!

Sprig Sans

Sprig Sans is a sans-serif with strong geometric shapes and a number of humanist qualities that soften its character. It has a wide range of weights, a variable font version, and a companion serif, making it an ideal choice for a brand font.

Zambeza

Zambeza is an elegant display font that draws inspiration from vintage posters. It features elegant rippling letterforms that combine into beautiful word shapes. It’s perfect for restaurant or hotel branding.

Gradient Comic

Gradient Comic is a halfway house between a sans and a lettering font. It features rounded terminals for a friendly shape and leans into its style with geometric-style consistency in its diagonal strokes.

Gradient Comic

Gamuth

Gamuth is a serif typeface with two optical sizes: text and display. It features a narrow width and a large x-height, resulting in very dense, weighty text. It’s an excellent choice for editorial design.

Riegla & Riegraf

Riegla & Riegraf are a companion pair of typefaces. Riegla is a sans-serif drawing inspiration from early 19th-century designs. Riegraf is a serif that uses the same skeleton to create a geometric serif.

Ginka

Ginka is a modern sans serif with oversized ink traps and punctuation, which gives it a quirky feel. It’s great for body or display type.

Ginka

Abstrakt

Abstrakt is a geometric sans serif that leans into the aesthetic of the early computer age of the 1960s–1980s. It’s heavily rounded and feels almost like lettering when used in any quantity.

Paes Qimoe

Paes Qimoe is a beautiful serif display face, with cut-outs adding a three-dimensional quality to the letterforms.

Paes Qimoe

Right Slab

Right Slab is a slab serif with an unusually large set of weights for an Egyptian. That makes it particularly useful in a variety of situations, from brand design to editorial work.

Right Slab

Picaresk

Picaresk is a sans serif with strong contrast, giving it a distinctly 90s flavor. Drawing inspiration from slab serifs of the 19th century, but removing the serifs, it’s a very usable typeface for any kind of display text.

Picaresk

Macho Moustache

Macho Moustache is a sans serif with a strong, muscular shape, especially in heavier weights. It’s an excellent choice for logo design when you want something clean, but not geometric.

Macho Moustache

Mistica

Mistica is an all-caps display font with a vintage feel. Inspired by the American South West, it would be equally at home on a Greek island, or the French Riviera.

Mistica

Xperiment Sans

Xperiment Sans is a modern typeface with an unusual series of slants, giving the font a unique character. It’s an excellent choice for branding or editorial design.

Xperiment

Sakral

Sakral is a serif font with exaggerated serifs, giving it a spikey, energetic feel. Inspired by a hand-painted sign, the letters form beautiful shapes.

Sakral

Digital Sans

Digital Sans is a geometric sans serif available in 7 weights and as a variable font. It’s a highly-flexible typeface suitable for any number of design jobs.

Digital Sans
