10 popular minimalist fonts

minimalist fonts

Based on the very known concept of ‘less is more’, minimalism represents the action of identifying the basic elements we need in our life and putting aside the excess. This concept has been around for centuries, yet somehow it became quite popular nowadays and can be expanded to almost everything. From way of living, interior design, clothing, we can talk about minimalism even when it comes to fonts.

Because we appreciate the power of simplicity and the impact it brings to our lives, we decided to make a quick selection of minimalist fonts. Not only they will come in handy in various situations, but they will also take your design to another level.


The Poppins font.

Simple, with smooth curves and no serifs. Would look good on leaflets or in magazines, right?


The Futura font.

This bold font surely stands out. We think it might go well for titles and headings.


The Montserrat font.

Without a doubt, this font has got a certain vibe to it. It looks so different and simple that we couldn’t help but add it to our list of favourites.


The Gotham font.

This font makes us think about Batman and the famous Gotham city. Are we the only ones around here doing that?


The Lato font.

It surely looks very serious, so we couldn’t even imagine seeing it in a different tone of voice other than the formal one.

Open Sans

The Open Sans font.

Still better than Comic Sans, right?

Avenir Next

The Avenir font.

There’s beauty in simplicity. And this font is quite a good example for this saying.


The Roboto font.

Very bold and easy to spot, this font is definitely the star of the show.

San Francisco

The San Francisco font.

We don’t know if it was inspired by the beauty of the West Coast, but it surely has got something that caught our attention.

Noto Sans

The Noto Sans font.

Last, but not least, we have arrived to number 10. There are never enough minimalist fonts, are there?
