Discover 10 of the best and coolest fonts every graphic designer should have in 2020!

Honestly, it took us some time to examine all the current trends in typeface design and we took a very close look at all the latest font releases to give you a fine selection of 10 cool fonts that will be very popular among designers in 2020.

Choosing the best typeface for a certain design project can be a difficult task. It depends on many details such as the main topic, the individual media (print, web or mobile for instance), the number of characters and text size, and of course current font trends. After digging deep into every detail as well as comparing many of the latest font releases with some of the most iconic typefaces of all time, we have put together this amazing selection of 10 cool fonts every graphic designer should have in 2020. It was not easy to limit the selection to only 10 fonts—that’s why we had to focus on relatively new typefaces or updates of famous fonts that have been published only in recent years.

10th: Questa Complete (The all-in-one superfamily)

All three subfamilies can be easily combined with each other, which makes Questa a true workhorse for different typographic needs. Each subfamily comes with various weights plus matching true Italics. In addition, the entire typeface collection is equipped with numerous typographic features such as four sets of figures, small caps, ligatures, and extended language support. If you are looking for an all-in-one solution for different projects, this superfamily is exactly what you need.

Created by graphic and type designer Arne Freytag, this font family is characterized by super ellipse-based shapes and a particularly high x-height, which results in a squarish serif that works best in contemporary typography—whether print or on screen. It seems that the release of this modern serif typeface went a bit under the radar of many designers. So if you are looking for something special, which is not frequently used in thousands of design projects, the Bionik font family could be a great choice.

Now we have entered the top three of the coolest fonts designers should have in 2020. Neue Haas was originally designed by Max Miedinger from 1957-1958 for the Haas’sche Schriftgiesserei in Switzerland. It was soon revised and released by the Linotype AG as Helvetica but as a heavily transformed version of the original typeface. For many years, the typeface underwent several modifications and in the 1980s, Neue Helvetica came out as a new standard. In 2004, font designer Christian Schwartz was asked to work on a digital revival based on the original Neue Haas Grotesk typeface and the family has been completed in 2010 for Richard Turley at Bloomberg Businessweek.

    • Gotham was actually on the shortlist because it’s one of my favorite fonts too. Well, maybe next time we need to make a wider selection. It’s difficult when you have to pick only 10 fonts and you want to make it a varied selection with different styles.
