5 Clean, Futuristic, Minimalist Fonts for Standout Headings

Share :

Headings or headers are included within passages, you know, the short titles you see right on top of a section or paragraph. Older generations (like me) are very familiar with it through reading magazines and newspapers. Obviously now it has branched out into digital and online writings such as blogs and website articles.

Why Minimalist Font Is Important for Headings

A good heading font is important because it becomes the initial sentences that the readers read. I’m sure you’ve done this too: skimming over a page by reading only its headers. So headers act as a quick overview of what’s included in the following paragraph. Plus, now with the integration of SEO and such, it can boost a post on search results.

And the standard for good heading fonts changes following any period of time. Although traditionally, publishers would use the same typeface but in thicker weight

What people consider “modern fonts” are commonly utilized again and again in published writings. However, it too adapts through eras. In other words, what people consider modern 20 years ago would be different to now, as well as going forward. Using modern fonts for your business or writings gives an assurance that your audience knows your services are recent and relevant.

Popularity of Minimalist Fonts and Futuristic Fonts

Speaking of modern fonts, there has been a rise of popularity in minimalist fonts. Whether they are serifs or sans serifs, these fonts are preferred because they are simple, adaptable, and clean fonts. A real example of the “Less is more” movement. 

Minimalist fonts are characterized by legible, easy on the eyes look. To mention some hallmarks, minimalist fonts usually have looser kerning, with some adapted to the use of negative space. But that is to say, there really is no fixed form and shape to this type. When you see it, you just notice it.

What about futuristic fonts? Don’t “modern” and “recent” conjugate into “future”? Some may see it that way, but futuristic fonts are closely related to sci-fi things and digital developments like the then invented computers and today’s AI. It’s safe to say that the eye-catching and bold futuristic style will stay relevant even far into the next century.

Which Style to Use for Headings

A clean font can come from all of the aforementioned types of fonts. It is such a desired style because user experience is essential. With comfort, readers can and will put the time to scroll through your page to the end. This will increase engagement and ratings.

Knowing your website or copies are (kind of) at stake. Here are a couple of fonts that you can use for standout headings. Visit each font’s page for details, font previews, and type tester.

A little note, some of the fonts in this list are family fonts so you will need software with a glyphs panel such as Adobe Photoshop CC 2015, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe InDesign. Learn how to utilize character sets and alternate glyphs by clicking this button below.
