5 Great Fonts for a Minimal Style

Keeping it simple is now about keeping things cool, so where do you start to tread when looking at a minimal font style for your business?  Your tread right here, and you tread all over this list. Bang on current trend, minimal design (done right) is now one of the quickest and most effective ways to get yourself out there. Keeping away from the fuss of tight, messy kerning and all that curly crap, we’ve handpicked 5 simple font styles that will have your graphic designers tingling.



Looking for a cool typography style that works forward thinking brands? Then you’re due to be all over AXIS. Coming in all caps, this straightforward sans-serif is clean, it’s approachable but it’s not shy either. In our opinion? It’s great for website headers, logo support, company campaigns, pastel colours and more.

We’ve gone and given you something minimal yet chunky for bolder brands, but how about something a little slimmer for slicker designers? That will be Simplifica that you’re after. Already boasting the simple style in its name alone, Simplifica is a condensed sans-serif with a delicate but almost hardy line width. Enjoyed in both lower and upper case, it’s still casual, but it has a tighter touch.

We had you at 3-in-1 didn’t we? That’s right, just because you’re heading down the minimal avenue doesn’t mean you have to scrimp on the weights of your trpography. A compact sans serif typeface that does exactly what it says on the tin, Dense is available in three weights at thin, regular and bold. The benefits? This means your website font could be versatile across the board.

BW Quinta Pro

Have we found one a simple typography style that’s inspired by handwriting details? Yes, yes we have. Likely one of the most versatile options on this list, BW Quinta Pro is available in, wait for it: 10 styles with 5 weights from light to black with matching italics. Meaning? You can keep it minimal and you can keep it smart, but you can still play around with it.

Museo Sans 

One of the most elevated typography styles on this list, we’ve included Museo Sans to show you that simplicity can still mean diversity. Oh, and there was a cute squid, we couldn’t miss that. A sans serif typeface with low contrast and geometric nodes, not only does Museo Sans have a ‘case’ feature, it’s what we consider a vital addition to this collection thanks to its ability to evolve text.
