15 Beautiful Fonts for Minimalist Designs

When opting for a minimalist design the typography is very important. Typography is always important but with a minimalist design the focus is more so on the content then on a graphic heavy design. The font you choose sets the tone of your design.

If you take a look at minimalist WordPress templates you can clearly see how the typography defines the entire design. Just change the font to something like Courier or Garamond and see how it affects the design.

In my opinion sans-serif fonts are better suited for modern minimalist designs. Serif fonts do better with a “literary” inspired design for lack of better word. Designs that aim for a book look. But then again there are no set rules when it comes to design, that is what challenges the creativity. To bend the “rules” and still deliver a good and usable design.

    Nice collection. While I already had some of these (Nevis, Expressway), I found some new I like.

    Thanks, I guess!
