graphic design typography trends 2019
This is why this type of typography will ever remain unique.
When you are writing texts on a photo, you usually superimpose the writing on the image.
Tip: Add a gradient to enhance the background of a flat design.
Tip: If PicMonkey’s bucketful of fonts doesn’t scratch your sans serif itch, peep our Free Fonts article for an annotated guide to all the font sources you could ever want in this life. There are tons of free fonts out there. Figuratively, we mean. We don’t know how much fonts actually weigh.
“In 2018 we’ve seen main providers of graphic design software and all major browsers adding or improving support for variable fonts. This was probably the fastest feature implementation in the history of CSS. Because of its efficiency, this format gained the attention of web designers and developers. We have also seen the first adoption of these in visual identities.”
Working between type technology and design, Paszkowska has been uniquely placed to see these trends evolve. “If you’re not familiar with them yet, variable fonts are single fonts that act as many: all the variations of width and weight, slant, and other attributes can be contained in a single highly efficient font file. Users can also animate between different style variants.”
Creative fonts can not only carry your message, but they also make a visual impact and evoke emotion. Typography can express joy or fear, loud or quiet. Or it can make you laugh, cringe, gasp—and everything in between.

The following trend has remained relevant over the past few years. A geometric inscription is a great option not only for websites and Instagram posts. It would also be a fit for album covers and movie posters. The geometric shapes of the letters remind us of both the runic alphabets and futuristic designs at the same time. So if you want to add some intrigue to your layout, use the font like The High Tide.
Handwritten typefaces allow you to create truly stylish layouts. It is no surprise that trendy calligraphy will be the icing on the cake for Instagram posts, websites, personal blog or even printed material. By using hand-drawn elements you can evoke different feelings. For example, for a beauty blog, you can use tender and curly lettering. It will create a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
