Let’s discuss 7 website fonts trends for 2020 and a way to identify your own fonts, using a simple and free tool.
Fonts always were super important for the overall design of a website, poster, T-shirt, advertisement, etc., and they still are. You should pay huge attention to this aspect, a font can dramatically change your website design and feel.
It is important you know how we identified these font ideas and trends. We used several methods:
- We discussed it with some of the experienced web designers
- We analyzed several huge online publications and we discussed it with their chief editors.
- We analyzed what the masses of people think about fonts trends
For 2020, I recommend you to take a look at these 7 website fonts ideas. Consider using them depending on your website design, company industry, business message and voice, and your marketing strategy. You should always test several fonts before deciding which one you will implement.
Popping & Big Bold Fonts
Large and bold fonts are attracting huge attention from your website visitors. The largest online publications will change their actual design with the looks of old newspapers. Just look at this picture, would you read an online publication that would look exactly like this? I would, it looks awesome and has hardly any pictures, makes the topics much more visible and interesting.
Custom Hand Lettering Fonts
Hand lettering fonts look great and can make your website stand out of the crowd in seconds. But be advised, you should use them carefully, it is very simple to overcomplicate your website design.
Creative Outline Fonts
Some of the best logos in the world are using outline fonts. You will also find in headings and to emphasize parts of texts. Use them in 2020 for your website, just look at this picture and let your mind think about how to implement it in your projects. It looks awesome.
Vintage and retro things are getting more and more present in our lives. Retro cars, motorcycles, airplanes, and boats are more and more demanded and bought.
We also look to buy vintage items and furniture. The same happens when we discuss vintage fonts. This trend will become more diversely present in 2020.
Another huge trend, not only for fonts, is the minimalist design. Some of our homes follow the minimalist principles, so we discovered that it is much easier to live in such a décor. Less is more, right? Minimalistic fonts have a great impact on websites. Still, use them carefully, the overall website design should match the elegant and minimalistic font.
Contrasting Serif Fonts
You already saw the contrasting serif fonts on many online and written publications. Use them to make your texts stand out.
Varying Script Fonts
Scripts fonts were created to imitate the handwritten fonts. Use them whenever you want your content to look classic, playful, or serious.
