Try one of these modern fonts to position your work at the forefront of design.

‘Form follows function’ in modernist design and the principle certainly applies to modern fonts. Based on geometric lines and forms, modern fonts are clean, clear, and easy to read; plus with a creative twist or dash of detail they have a cool, contemporary vibe.

Here are 50 fonts that will give your design work an up-to-date edge.

01. Lombok

You’ll quickly see from these 50 free fonts that modern fonts are overwhelmingly sans serif typefaces; that is, there is no projecting lines or curls at the ends of a letter. Lombok by Alexandre Pietre is very angular and geometric with divided forms and doubled lines.

Ailerons is a font by Adilson Gonzales de Oliveira Junior inspired by airplane models from the 1940s. The ends of each letter are angled and ever-so-slightly curved for delicate detail.
