30 Modern Fonts to Bring Life to Your Poster

30 Modern Fonts to Bring Life to Your Poster

Note: Uploading Custom Fonts is only available to PosterMyWall Premium Users.

Fonts come in all shapes and sizes, and while picking a font that works for you can be daunting, you can always experiment and ask others how your chosen font goes with your design. Fonts come in 4 categories:

  • Sans Serif
  • Serif
  • Cursive/script
  • Display

We will look at examples of all of these fonts, especially the ones that are more “modern” than others. While modern fonts don’t have a clear cut definition, it’s generally used to describe the more recently created fonts with their long horizontal serifs and high contrast between their thick and thin strokes. 

We’ll look at some of the neat fonts you can download and upload into the editor. Most of these are free, though some have to be purchased, but you can always find easy alternatives.
