Free for Creative Cloud members, Adobe Typekit is a database of downloadable typefaces. It can be super helpful, but there is such a high volume available that sometimes it can be hard to find just what you’re looking for. Can you really find the unique type that you desire?
I can’t guarantee that I have just what you’re looking for, but these typefaces are modern, versatile and fun additions to your collection of fonts.
1) Niveau Groetsk
This is one of my favourite typefaces to use for body copy, especially in Light. This typeface comes in a few different weights to suit your needs. It’s modern and simple without being Helvetica or Futura. I find that it is easy to read and looks clean on the page.
2) Lust Script
I love using this script for titles. It’s fun, youthful and ornate without being hard to read. I like to use this is large-sized font.
3) Adobe Text Pro
This is another typeface that is great for body copy. It’s a good alternative to Minion if you like serif. I also find it quite easy to read and doesn’t take away from your content. It’s simple while still incorporating traditional elements, so I think this is a great choice for all audiences. However, only the Regular and Italic are free; bolds and lights are 30 USD each.
To me, this typeface embodies the spirit of today’s design: modern and clean with a retro flare. All of the curves are very geometric, yet it feels soft overall. I would mainly use this for headings/titles.
I’m a fan of Kremlin because it has a hand-drawn feel without being childish or overly-sloppy. It’s great for anything that you want to give a casual vibe. I like using fonts like this for titles as well as in diagrams/graphics.
Those are my personal favourite typefaces that I have discovered on Typekit. If you’re a Creative Cloud member, take a look for yourself. There’s always something new to discover.
