Fonts can be the difference between a good design and a bad one, and the right font is essential when it comes to conveying your message.

Sometimes the choice can seem obvious. For example, a calligraphy-style font wouldn’t best represent a law firm in the same way that a crèche wouldn’t choose something bold or boxy.

However, it gets a little more complicated beyond that, which is why our experienced graphic design team is our number one when it comes to choosing fonts.

Take a look as our designers reveal their favourites below. You may even find some new font choices to inspire your next project.

 

Orange-personaNikki:

“My taste in fonts is constantly changing and my choice is regularly influenced by the latest trends. I do however always seem to revert back to script and handwritten varieties most.

Marguitas font

At the moment I love a pretty fun font called Marguaritas. It’s a free-form daft font and that’s always a bonus. Hipsterish is another of my current favourites. It’s very on trend at the moment.”

Teal-personaYume:

“Like Nikki’s, my opinion is always changing. Sometimes I use a font I love so many times that I get sick of it, just like what happens when you play a song on repeat.

Edeline font

At the moment though, I really like Edeline and Fairytales Script for fun and cute designs. I love how they have an arty and sketchy feel to them.

When I need to make a statement, I like to use Bebas Neue. It’s blocky and strong and get’s the point across.

Georgia will always be my favourite classic font. I like the fact that the serifs are rounded and aren’t too big.”

“I would have to say Helvetica Neue as my favourite. It’s a good hardworking font and I know I can always rely on it for editorial design. It’s easy to read at any size and great for small credits, captions etc.

I also love Replica when I see it used. It’s a sharp sans serif with lovely details on the edges and looks great when used big”.
