Top 10 Fonts That Will Be Popular With Designers in 2022
Any of these are brand new fonts that you might not have learned of yet. But, since graphic design is only all about what’s fresh and trendy, we’ve added some older, more developed fonts as well. Many of these have managed to create headlines in the architecture world, although some have recently made a well-deserved comeback. Overall, both of these fonts provide an outstanding opportunity to jazz up your projects and give your job a new and distinct look.

1. Futura Now
Futura Now is the final edition of Futura, the iconic sans-serif that characterised modern typography, created by Monotype and featuring 102 types. It’s now available as a variable font, allowing you to create an infinite number of types while leaving a small digital footprint.
2. FS Renaissance
FS Renaissance is a show stencil font… but not in the usual sense. It is the product of a rare partnership between lettering artist and designer Craig Black and creative type director Pedro Arilla. The cuts are not static, but rather hand-crafted connections between each unit, emphasising the idea of a typeface as a work of art or sculpture.
3. Neue Haas Grotesk
Neue Haas Grotesk, developed by Christian Schwartz, is a new version of the classic typeface designed by Max Miedinger in 1957-1961, with art direction by Eduard Hoffmann. That developed into Helvetica, but Schwartz maintains that digitising Helvetica required so many compromises; therefore, this modern digital edition of Neue Haas Grotesk is intended to be more faithful to the original. The best part is that it is now accessible for free through Google Fonts!
Circular is a sans-serif font produced by Laurenz Brunner and distributed by Lineto. Although it is broadly geometric, it has certain eccentric features that render it more appealing and unique than most of its contemporaries.
Dinamo’s latest edition of Fabian Harb’s sans-serif ABC Whyte has quick and sharp transitions and comes in 10 weights with matching italics. Most notably, it is a variable font; a revolutionary and valuable technology that we are certain would be very common in 2021, now that it is funded by InDesign.
6. GT America
GT America, designed by Nol Leu and Seb McLauchlan, is effectively the missing link between nineteenth-century American Gothics and twentieth-century European neo-grotesk typefaces. It is available in 84 designs and combines the strongest design elements from both traditions in the widths and weights where they work best.
7. Noe Display
Noe Show is a display typeface with a touch of zing. The audacity with which its strokes end is what distinguishes it; broad, wedge-shaped serifs come to a sharp point, and arches are topped with conspicuous triangular beaks. The four weights of this font provide a nearly constant hairline weight, providing varying degrees of drama and effect as the stems thicken from normal to black.
8. Basis Grotesque
Basis Grotesque was built in a standard weight for the redesign of the photography journal Hotshoe. Three years back, Colophon created and launched the font for commercial use. The weights’ intentional skeletal resemblance is contrasted by a varied set of forms, which is complemented by monospaced cuts in both standard and bold weights, as well as collaborator italics.
9. Eksell Display
Eksell Display was a one-of-a-kind serif typeface designed by the renowned Swedish artist Olle Eksell (1918–2007) in 1962. The initial letterforms were created in Olle’s five-metre-square Stockholm workshop, six years after he modelled the iconic Mazetti eyes. These letters have been meticulously digitised and formed into a family of four optical types in this edition.
Lars is intended to be objective and adaptable. This family, which includes a stylistic selection of rounded glyphs, a ‘footed’ number 1, a condensed ampersand, and a case-sensitive element, covers a broad variety of languages and provides excellent legibility.
Simula, the debut font of artist and designer Justin Sloane, is a serif that is both versatile and surprising in its tiny specifics. This mechanical re-interpretation of calligraphic type defies tradition wonderfully and beautifully, the culmination of four years of drawing and redrawing.
Tight, skinny, and humanist serifs are really popular right now, and this is a perfect illustration. With its high contrast and sharp details, Parnaso is a perfect option for a show typeface in editorial or advertisement work, inspired by 19th-century revivals of Old Style Romans.
Jan Maack produced IvyMode, a sans-serif typeface designed specifically for magazines. It comes in ten different models and is suitable for premium retailers and fast fashion. The family is available in five weights with contrasting italics and features strong contrast and flared stroke endings.
Orpheus by Canada The typefaces were influenced by two serif typefaces created by Walter Tiemann in 1928 that were common in packaging and entertainment design. Orpheus blends traditional Roman proportions with art deco sensibilities, with a swirling italic style heavily inspired by calligraphy.
Garnett is a solid, modern grotesk engineered by Connor Davenport and released by Sharp Type. The family is available in six weights with contrasting italics, inspired by the eccentric grotesques of nineteenth-century Britain and influenced by American Gothic.
16. FS Meridian
FS Meridian is a geometric grotesque that draws influence from the exact and incomplete existence of time (hence the name). This rhythmic typeface has a wide monoline look, humanistic elements, and long shapes.
Moderat is a geometric sans-serif with low stroke contrast, small apertures, and angular details. The font includes 42 types varying from thin to black in three widths (Condensed, Standard, and Extended), as well as matching Italics and six mono styles, and is suitable for both body copy and show form.
18. Miller Banner
Miller Banner is an adaptation of Matthew Carter’s iconic Miller series by Richard Lipton that has been optimised for very broad settings. It’s ideal for use in banner headlines and names, with sharpened hairlines and more drastic similarities.
19. Monument Grotesk
ABCD Monument Grotesk is a strong font with a decidedly rough and unpolished appearance. It comes in seven distinct weights, including italic, mono and semi-mono cuts, as well as heavy and black with matching italics, and has unrefined and idiosyncratic forms.
Bely is an adventurous serif font designed by Roxane Gataud that features sharp, triangular serifs and open apertures. It comes in two weights of contrasting italics, as well as the display type Display, which has a strong contrast between its thick and thin strokes.
