5 Typefaces that you Should be Consider Using
28 March 2017      Posted by Adam Chetter

Choosing the fonts is such a perplexing task to do because of the endless choices available. Ranging from normal to contemporary to the intricate ones, fonts are hard to decide. With so many options to choose from, selecting the right typeface needs your time and experience. Picking up the typeface can be fun at times when you need to go for a mix match. But can also be a pain in the ass if you don’t have that creative bent of mind.

For a beautiful design or infographic or an image, no more than two fonts must be used. Create a stunning style or contrast trying your hands on the different typefaces. Simply imagine yourself stuck in the puzzle with all the varied fonts and assembling them all in one, isn’t it hard? Today’s article is focussed on which typeface you should be using:

Script
You might be aware about the cursive handwriting in schools where all the letters are connected to form a word. It is one of the most stylish and fun typefaces one can ever use. Available in different styles, script is a casual yet elegant font to be used for the funky designing.

Sans Serif
A contemporary and novelty font, Serif doesn’t have the extra lines on the ends. It is a good typeface that makes the whole design or page look streamlined and modern. To give a serious look, no other font than sans serif can work rightly. With this, you can quickly move your eyes along the sentences as it lends an easy navigation throughout. If you are a resolution freak, don’t use this font because it looks a little distorted when zoomed in.

Caslon
Caslon is a typeface that always comes on the top and makes a unique appearance all over again. No doubt other fonts are also there like Minion or Garamond, but nothing beats the beauty of Caslon. A very basic rule of thumb is “When in doubt, head to Caslon”!

GT Walsheim
Nice and modern is this typeface – GT Walsheim. This font is majorly used by the designers to give an award-winning look to the design. For the portfolios, this typeface is never to leave as it resembles Future font.

Gotham
One of the most iconic typefaces is Gotham. It has gained a lot of popularity since few years and perfectly gives a cut-throat competition to all the other fonts.

Decorative
Last on my list is decorative font! It is a font that is used to add some sort of special effects or else to the design or text. Looks more unusual, this font gathers more attention and eyeballs.

How to Choose a Font?
The font must match the design that you are going to make. Before picking any font, look for the other factors so that the typeface doesn’t look awry. While choosing a font, have the blueprint ready in hand and play fun. Because every font has its distinct mood and personality, you have to be very careful while choosing or else a wrong font can ruin the whole look of the design.
