There’s nothing like a new font or two to breathe new life into your designs. And so, every month, we put together this collection of the fonts that have caught our eye in the past few weeks.

This month we’ve got traditional slab-serifs, some original scripts, a couple of workhorses, and plenty of characterful display faces. Enjoy!

Canora

There are plenty of calligraphic typefaces available, but Canora is a little different. Alongside Canora Frente, which leans to the right, Canora Verso leans to the left for an original look.

Fisterra

Fisterra is an informal serif in two styles. Morte emphasizes the pair’s curves, and Fora accentuates the sharp lines; both share the same elegant skeleton.

King of August

King of August is a single-weight script that’s packed with energy. The extra cut beneath the stroke on characters like the lowercase s and p add a delightful wet-paint feel.

Lithops

This poster-worthy font is Lithops. The pattern forming the letter shapes is reminiscent of seaweed, fine jewelry, and acid flashbacks. Just don’t try setting body text in it.

Sangbleu

Sangbleu is a super-family of typefaces with five complementary voices: Empire, Kingdom, Republic, Versailles, and Sunrise. It’s ideal for demanding editorial work.

Kohinoor One

Kohinoor One claims to be the thinnest font ever produced, with strokes just one unit thick. It’s perfect for those occasions when you need light typographic color at extra large sizes.

Firelli

Firelli is a warm, contemporary slab serif with a range of weights from thin up to a chunky, retro-feeling Black. It works amazingly for both headlines and body text.

UCity

Ideal for signage, branding, and headline text, UCity Pro is a geometric sans-serif with ten styles and a variable font version.

Artex

Artex is an excellent sans-serif with simplified forms that work best when embracing its vast number of styles and weights. It’s also available as a variable font.

Colroy

Colroy is an excellent early-style slab-serif that is superb for setting large runs of text. It was begun in 2009, released in 2014, and has just been re-released with new weights and a variable font.

Fabbrica

Fabbrica is a solid, functional sans-serif that performs exceptionally well at small sizes, including on screen. It has rounded and sharp variations and different weights.

Mule

As the name suggests, Mule is a flexible, hard-working serif with mixed lineage. Its round shapes are friendly and engaging, and its vertical rhythm makes it ideal for extended text passages.

Romano

Romano is a distinctly Roman font. Subtle flares and abrupt angles call to mind carved letterforms and the formal scripts of the renaissance.

Kosmos

Kosmos is an experimental typeface in which multiple horizontal shapes make up the letters. The finest weights are barely visible, and the thicker weights overlap the shapes to create cloud-like forms.

Precise Sans

Precise Sans is an excellent font for dashboards and other complex UI designs. It is clean and modern with simplified shapes. It’s currently in beta.

This month’s collection of the best new sites is a mixed bag. Positivity remains from last month’s edition, and what we’re seeing is designers being far more ambitious for the experiences they create.

We have a couple of sites helping to alleviate the damage of war, some unusual approaches to topics that are normally very dour, and some excellent portfolios to be jealous of. Enjoy!

Sarah Fatmi

Characterful illustration and desktop sideways scrolling make this portfolio site for illustrator Sarah Fatmi stand out.

Vestiaire Impact Report

Green is the new black, and fashion resale platform Vestiaire presents its green credentials in an informative and engaging way.

Houseplant

Houseplant is a collection of cannabis-related products designed by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg; this site is a lot classier than the average headshop.

FreshCut BarberShop

The site for FreshCut BarberShop is modern, bold, and gets its message across clearly, even if the user doesn’t read French.

Feed The 300

Feed the 300 is an appeal in aid of the animals in Ukraine’s zoos. It is very simple in concept and design, but endearing animated line drawings give it character.

Honeymoon Chicken

Luscious photography combined with surprisingly delicate illustrations makes Honeymoon Chicken very inviting.

Patachou Inc

Patachou Inc operates a group of eateries and the site does a good job of conveying both the very different individual brand identities of each establishment, and the common ethic behind all of them.

Living With OCD

Many design studios do showcase projects, and Living With OCD by designedbyla is one of the more publicly beneficial, and well-executed, examples around.

Aro

Aro is a product with a very simple concept — basically, a box to put away a phone, that also charges it — but this website does a great job of increasing the product’s desirability.

Kim Kniepp

The navigation on this site for Kim Kniepp’s design studio feels very interconnected, an effect heightened by the overlapping masonry grid.

Triniti

There is a calming, reassuring quality to the color used here for Pan-Baltic law firm Triniti. The perpetual motion style hero video adds a confident, soothing touch too.

Herezie

Creative agency Herezie uses saturation and gradual color changes to pleasing effect in this confident, assured website.

MetalColor

The color choices in this site for MetalColor, and how they are used, succeed in evoking what results the company could achieve without focusing on the less glamorous parts of the process.

Gras

Architecture and design studio Gras goes for a clean feel with an irregular grid layout and carefully curated images. The blog sidebar works well too.

Vendredi Society

Dark green and bright yellow make a strong statement in this portfolio site for brand strategists Vendredi Society.

HUB

HUB describes itself as a progressive property developer and this site does a great job of leaving behind the corporate image usually associated with property developers.

Nowhere Bakery

Nowhere Bakery makes vegan, paleo, gluten-free cookies, which don’t sound all that appealing on paper. This site manages to make them seem both really tasty and healthy.

Apotheke zur Triumphpforte

The botanical illustration style images on Apotheke zur Triumphpforte’s site help create an approachable brand identity while adding visual interest.

B!POD

A good balance of images, animation, and illustration combine to create an impactful presence for B!pod’s first product, a food vacuum storage system.

The New Exhibition

The New Exhibition is a showcase platform for Ukrainian creatives — type designers, illustrators, graphic designers, photographers, and others — whose ability to get work has been affected by war.

This month’s collection of the best new fonts is headed in a lighter and quirkier direction than previous months. What’s more, font foundries seem to be getting more creative with their designs as many of these fonts come with alternative stylistic sets, giving you more control over the resulting typeface.

If you’re looking for some fun new fonts to spice up your web designs with, start here:

1. Beauty Rose

Beauty Rose is a whimsical script font that can add a touch of romance and warmth to header text and hero images. It would also look great when promoting holidays and events like Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, and weddings.

2. Black Sharp

Black Sharp is a bold display font that works equally well for website logos as it does for physical products (e.g., signage, packaging, book covers, etc.). What’s especially neat about this font is how it transforms when you change its texture. It takes on a very different tone with a grainy look instead of a shiny one, for instance.

3. Goat & Qalvigo

Goat & Qalvigo is a classic serif font with a modern twist. While many of the examples provided by the type designer show off the funky side of the font, thanks to the additional ligatures and alternative styles, you can always use the regular character sets. Either way, you’ll have a classy new font to use all over your website.

4. Happy Comic

Happy Comic is a font filled with personality. Looking at it makes me think of a goofy cartoon character or maybe even an older Adam Sandler movie. This would be a good font for branding lighthearted and humorous brands or publications.

5. Helsa Display

Helsa Display is a slim and compact serif. While serifs usually work pretty well for paragraph text, this one belongs in headlines and sub-headlines because of how thin the characters are. It also has a bit of a dark side (see the examples at the link to see what I mean), so reserve this font for boundary-pushing brands and personalities.

6. Lab Antiqua Variable

Lab Antiqua is a font that took years to create. The most recent release for this font family is called Lab Antiqua Variable. Like other variable fonts, Lab Antiqua will effortlessly transition through a range of font sizes without losing the characteristics that make this serif font so unique.

7. Monomorium

Monomorium is a monospaced typeface with open apertures and a flowing style. In addition, this quirky font comes with additional ligatures, stylistic alternates, parentheses, and more, depending on how fun or buttoned-up you want it to look.

8. Neumond

Neumond is a serif font that pushes the boundaries of legibility. This font gives you the ability to equip the characters with razor-sharp lines, overlap the letters, and push them towards extreme angles. If you have a brand that’s challenging the norm, a font like this that does the same will go really well with it.

9. Pratico Slab UI

Pratico Slab UI is a slab serif font that would add strength and character to the text of a website. You can also experiment with the weight and size if you’re looking for a not-so-boring but highly legible header font.

10. PT Nature

PT Nature is an exciting collection of script fonts. While they all technically belong to the PT Nature family, each font is modeled after different people’s handwriting. So this font family could be really useful if you use a lot of script fonts in your work. Or if you want to make one site and brand look like it has multiple personalities.

11. Rosehot Typeface

Rosehot Typeface is a pretty font that straddles the line between serif and sans serif. With its elegant curves, unexpected twists, and additional angles, this font would beautifully elevate designs for high-end retailers, fashionistas, and others with luxury offerings or services.

12. Shorai Sans

Shorai Sans is a sans serif font inspired by both calligraphic brushstrokes as well as geometric outlines. You can use it to style Latin text as well as Japanese. The font’s creators suggest pairing it with Avenir Next for greater harmony in your designs.

13. Shoutyperson

Shoutyperson is a bold all-caps font. Because of the grungy, stenciled style of the font, it’s not really applicable for many projects. That said, Shoutyperson would be an effective font choice for military, ammunition companies, or brands or personalities associated with a strict, regimented lifestyle (like personal trainers).

14. Simple Farmhouse

Simple Farmhouse is a basic handwriting font that’s highly legible. It resembles the style of writing you’d use to jot down notes on a whiteboard or in a notebook, so it would work well for brands that want to convey a casual and low-key vibe.

15. Sweet Pancakes

Sweet Pancakes is a fun font with full-bodied characters. Most of the examples provided frame the font against food, so this could be used on restaurant websites or food blogs. However, that’s not to say it couldn’t be used elsewhere. It’s a lighthearted and easy-to-read font, so it could just as well be used to style websites and branding for companies and personalities with a bubbly personality and/or positive mission.

This month all of our web design trends have a common theme – imagery. Whether it’s seasonal or just coincidence, there’s a shift in the styles and types of images on many designs right now. One thing that might push these design trends is a relaxation of COVID-spurred rules worldwide or even fatigue from the pandemic.

Here’s what’s trending in design this month.

1. Little Images Everywhere

The jury is still out on whether we love or hate this design trend – tiny images (and videos) everywhere.

The thing that’s nice is there is a lot to see and interact with. The thing that’s challenging is that these designs can feel a bit unbalanced and all over the place.

Most of these designs feature four or more images or videos at a time. That can be a lot for a user to digest when we are accustomed to having just one thing to look at in the hero area.

Those four or more images then include all of the other user interface elements that you would expect on the page – navigation, large headline, secondary text, scroll, or engagement interaction. It can be a lot to decipher.

Tokyu Garden City does it with a mix of still and moving images with sliders and other animations. The images are always changing and moving, and there’s constantly something new to look at with movement at the top and bottom of the screen.

Buro Jantzen takes the tiny image idea to an extreme with ten images on the homepage. And every one is smaller than a postage stamp. There is a cool effect that happens with each image though. On hover, the small image pops into the large black box at a size where you can really see the photo.

Oliver Guy uses a combination of video images on his website, which makes perfect sense for his industry of drone photography. There’s some interesting hover animation happening that allows you to see additional video clips without leaving the homepage. The contrast of small video on the white background makes this design easy to understand.

 

 

2. Big Detail Photography

Photographic details in all their glory. Images and elements that are so in your face that you can see every detail. That’s majorly trending in website design.

Big detail photography and videography is one of those image trends that can be so visually interesting that you can’t look away. It has other benefits, too, such as facilitating decision-making for e-commerce or helping someone better understand what an item is or the overall messaging.

Each of these examples shows something larger than life-size.

Karak creates ceramic tiles. The primary background image is so big and with such detail that it almost only serves as texture for the design. But it is paired with a smaller image and video that pull everything together for a complete understanding. The big detail image is beautiful and exciting and provides an extra layer of information.

Wuillemin Fleuristes features an off-balanced hero image with a large floral detail. What’s interesting about this design choice for a detail image is that it is the only image on the screen and partially obscured by a tinted box and text element. The overall design draws the eye but may leave the user wanting to see a little more of the image.

Horage pushes its watch in your face with motion in a video that zooms the product closer and closer into view. The combination of detailed video with very little text is a bold choice for e-commerce and might work because this item is still in the preorder phase. Detailed imaging is designed to help create a desire for the product.

 

 

3. Big Faces are Back

After two years of not having that many faces in design projects, designers are going big and bold and showing people again.

One of the reasons we haven’t seen as many faces in design projects is because there was concern over how to show people – masked or maskless, alone or in crowds – and it caused more concern than was worth just going another way.

But projects with big faces are back in a major way. And it’s refreshing to make virtual eye contact again.

There are plenty of ways to do it, as outlined in each of these examples.

Glassbox Media uses a full-screen oversized video on the homepage. You can see the subject’s eyes and feel engaged with the person on the screen. She seems happy, and the size and scale of the face make you feel almost like you are in a room with her, ready to have a conversation.

Reamarie uses smaller still images with tight crops to bring you into the faces on the screen. There are more, bigger faces throughout the scroll as well so that the user feels connected to the people and product. Even if an image isn’t super large, a tight crop can make it feel bigger and create the same level of engagement as something that has more size on the screen.

Recruit Holdings Co. uses a trio of people together, happy and smiling, to establish a connection with website visitors. The entire design features similar images throughout and makes you feel like you want to be a part of what they are offering. Note that the people are close together and without masks; that’s a culture shift we are starting to see in a lot of imagery.

 

 

Conclusion

Photography, videography, and image trends can be driving factors for website design projects. The types of images selected can set the tone for projects, relate to brand identity, and help engage users.
