Typography is more important than most of us think. It is the bond between the message and the way it is delivered, so it is vital to choose a good font in order to create something which really stands up and impress the viewer. Finding the perfect font requires a lot of searching and trials to see which one fits perfectly, so this article gives you 25 beautiful fonts perfectly made for clean and minimalist projects. I hope you like them and let me know what you think.

Sol Pro

Based on the classic Sol design by Marty Goldstein and C.B. Smith, published by VGC in 1973, Sol Pro goes above and beyond the call of revival/retooling to include plenty of optical improvements to the original design, more weights, italics, small caps, biform shapes, alternates, and extended language support.

Bayer Modern

Bayer Modern is based on Bauhaus artist Herbert Bayer’s universal alphabet designed in 1925. In the spirit of reductive minimalism, Bayer held radical opinions about functionality in typography and design. As master of the Bauhaus’ printing and advertising workshop, he insisted that all official materials be printed exclusively in lowercase and in sans-serif.

Draft Werk

Brion

An elegant typeface with rounded corners influenced by the work of Visual Graphics Corporation.

ArchiType

With the famous and much used Eurostile and Bank Gothic in my mind I wanted to design a mono-line font as simple and legible as possible. A square with rounded corners, i.e., the letter ‘o’ as its basis. From there on back to basics, so straights remained simple straights with 90° endings, whatever the angle. Numbers are monospaced.

Neubau

Neubau is a condensed geometric display typeface, designed in 2009. The inspiration for this face came from Joost Schmidt lowercase letters developed during 1925-28 in Bauhaus Dessau. Schmidt was one of the proponents of New Typography – a movement advocating the use of only lowercase letters which were constructed strictly geometrically using only ruler and compass.

Recta

Recta was one of Aldo Novarese’s earliest contributions to the massive surge of the European sans serif genre that was booming in the middle of the 20th century. Initially published just one year after Neue Haas Grotesk came out of Switzerland and Univers out of France, and at a time when Akzidenz Grotesk and DIN were riding high in Germany and Gill Sans was making waves in Great Britain, it was intended to compete with all of those foundry faces, and later came to be known as the “Italian Helvetica”. It maintains traditional simplicity as its high point of functionality, while showing minimal infusion of humanistic traits.

Design System

Design System is a great type system consisted of 5X7X2=70 font styles from 70s-style simple square sans to the widest style of all time that are best for titles, logo and text. Their simple form does not limit the target of design and can be used for any creative work.

Sancoale

Sancoale is a new sans serif that is simple and geometric. It is a contemporary design that is distinctive and unique, but not too far outside the box. This makes for a typeface family that is very useful for many applications. The design is simplified without stems or spurs in the default character set.

Semplicita Pro

Semplicita Pro is a new sans serif design that effortlessly straddles the tri-cornered divide between the geometrical, humanist, and gothic sans serifs. We started by reappraising Semplicità, Alessandro Butti’s important 1930 design for Nebiolo.
