Best Display Fonts in Canva
1. Playfair Display
Playfair is a transitional design. In the European Enlightenment in the late 18th century, broad nib quills were replaced by pointed steel pens as the popular writing tool of the day. Together with developments in printing technology, ink, and paper making, it became to print letterforms of high contrast and delicate hairlines that were increasingly detached from the written letterforms.
2. Big Shoulders Display
Big Shoulders is a superfamily of condensed American Gothic variable fonts, created for the Chicago Design System, and the citizens of Chicago. The family’s tall, sans-serif forms are based on Chicago’s multiple histories in railway transport, public political action, and dance.
3. Red Hat Display
Red Hat is a family of typefaces produced in 2 optical sizes and a monospace style, in a range of weights with italics. The fonts were originally commissioned by Paula Scher, Pentagram, and designed by Jeremy Mickel, MCKL for the new Red Hat identity.
4. Gilda Display
Gilda Display is a font of classic proportions, in which we can see the finest treatment of curves, strokes, and serifs. The high stroke contrast has especially smooth transitions, making this type perfect for the world of fashion, jewelry, and luxury items.
5. Helsa Display
Helsa is a slim and eccentric serif for headings and short texts. It’s a modern interpretation of the narrow Elseviers of the early 20th century. The letterforms are based on Dutch samples, and in the details, there are references to both American-type catalogs and letters from the foundries of Wolf and Herbeck.
6. Kitsch Display
Designed by Francesco Canovaro with help from Andrea Tartarelli and Maria Chiara Fantini, Kitsch is a typeface happily living at the crossroads between classical Latin and medieval gothic letterforms.
7. Sugo Display
Sugo Pro is a condensed geometric sans serif with a robust body, slightly rounded corners, and a no-nonsense street-style attitude. The sturdy, robust design of Sugo makes it an ideal choice for sports branding and street-style editorial use. Lighter weights provide great legibility at small sizes while the regular and bold weights are more suited to titling, logo, and headlines.
8. TT Fors Display
TT Fors is a modern geometric sans serif with characters and shapes contrasting in width, as close as possible to the basic geometric shapes (circle, square, triangle).
9. Lemonade Display
Lemonade is a cute and quirky display font. It will add an incredibly joyful touch to your designs. Add this beautiful display font to each of your creative ideas and notice how it makes them stand out!
