Volume 11 - 8.11.20
Middle-weight serifs that are elegant, refined, and perfect for classically chic projects!
Ugh, I just love serif fonts so much. They are elegant, classic, and usually so beautiful to look at. Every serif font can be unique, and I intend to try them all at some point. Today, I'm featuring some of my favorite mid-weight fonts that are versatile, artistic, but still readable and to the point.
No. 1 Luciano
I mean, look at that Q! Does this font even need an explanation? It is quirky but stylish, classic but can be made contemporary. Full of contradictions, and yet 100% gorgeous. I can see this on skincare packaging, jewelry boxes, wedding invites, you name it.
If you don't already have it as part of your free font library, get it here.
No. 2 Didot
If you don't already know of and use Didot, DO IT NOW. Look at that chic, beautiful lettering. It is classic and unfussy, which is just how I like my serif fonts. Didot is one of the most versatile and beautiful typefaces for anything and everything, including packaging, body text, and featured lettering.
No. 3 Night
Technically part of a duo called "Jolly Night," Night is a beautiful and modern take on the classic serif. I love the diagonal crosses (which are super popular right now!) and how readable & impactful it is. Perfect for projects that need a little bit of whimsy.
No. 4 FF Carina
This is the most unique & quirky on the list, but I think the capitals especially are really gorgeous. I like the tiny tails on the lowercase y and capital Q, and the beautiful lowercase g. These would be great for single-letter logo designs that need to convey a lot of style in just one character!
