10 Sweet New Fonts

September 18, 2012

It can be easy to stick with established, pleasant–looking fonts for your postcards, posters, brochures and other graphic designs (Helvetica, anyone?).  But experimenting with new fonts can add attention-getting dramatic flair to your designs that helps you make your mark as a designer and helps your marketing material designs generate greater response rates.  If you’d like to try your hand at some great new fonts, try playing with the following fonts.  Each font listed is both new in 2012 and free to download.

1.  KG One More Night by Kimberly Geswein

One More Night makes a great font for call out statements in a progressive company’s brochure.

2.  Sewn Tight by Xerographer Fonts

This would make a cool font for a sewing-related company or a household tip website logo.

3.  MALA by HaveFun Fonts

A B-movie-like horror poster is the example given by the designer, but I think this font could have a Hawaiian appeal as well.

4.  VTKS Citrino by Douglas Vitkauskas

This slick and stylish font would be a great foundation for a logo or tagline graphic.

5.  Splekta by Uusimaa Type Foundry Incorporated

A clean font with just enough unique style (look at the “a”) that would be perfect for headlines.

This font has elementary school hand-scrawled love appeal, and would be perfect for a company that wants to promote a fun and youthful image.

The vintage blackboard look has so many design applications, but you can use this highly stylized font anywhere from business cards to posters and websites.

Alan, you could do a lot of neat stuff using that font with PS blending options alone! I'm partial to Pop Cap myself.
