When it comes to sans serif fonts, designers have endless options to choose from. What are your go-to fonts? Does your personal taste in typography affect your designs? To check out my top 5 sans serif fonts, read below:
Gotham remains to be my top sans serif choice. If I want a sans serif font that screams confidence yet retains its friendliness, I use Gotham. Its assertiveness is evident in the anatomy but it doesn’t come off imposing. With 44 new styles, Gotham is perfect for headlines, body copy or anything in between!
Ranking number two on my list is Avenir! This font takes inspiration from Futura (Avenir means “future” in French). Adrian Frutiger pays homage to Futura based on the name he has chosen. Though highly-inspired by Futura, Avenir is not driven by geometric forms. It has an imperfect “O” and short ascenders. These little details are just a few things that differs Avenir from Futura, while continuing to be the down-to-earth font that it is!
As my 3rd choice, I choose Univers, another typeface designed by Adrian Frutiger. Over the years, this font has become my new Helvetica. I find it to have full of character with its wide range in weights and its less rigid anatomy. Also, I love its versatility to be on its own or when paired with other fonts- I enjoy pairing it with Garamond! Here are a few examples that use Univers.
