Best Fonts for WordPress in Canva
Roboto has a dual nature. It has a mechanical skeleton and the forms are largely geometric. At the same time, the font features friendly and open curves. While some grotesks distort their letterforms to force a rigid rhythm, Roboto doesn’t compromise, allowing letters to be settled into their natural width.
The Lobster font took a different approach. The new OpenType format gives us the possibility to have multiple versions of each letter, and that’s exactly what we are doing: Instead of compromising the design of our letters to force connections, we do what lettering artists do. We draw many versions of each letter and a lot of different letter pairs (aka “ligatures”) so we always use the best possible variation of each letter depending on the context of the letter inside each word.
Oswald is a reworking of the classic style historically represented by the ‘Alternate Gothic’ sans serif typefaces. The characters of Oswald were initially re-drawn and reformed to better fit the pixel grid of standard digital screens. Oswald is designed to be used freely across the internet by web browsers on desktop computers, laptops, and mobile devices.
Raleway is an elegant sans-serif typeface family. Initially designed by Matt McInerney as a single thin weight, it was expanded into a 9-weight family by Pablo Impallari and Rodrigo Fuenzalida in 2012 and iKerned by Igino Marini. A thorough review and italic were added in 2016.
Lora is a well-balanced contemporary serif with roots in calligraphy. It is a text typeface with moderate contrast well suited for body text. A paragraph set in Lora will make a memorable appearance because of its brushed curves in contrast with driving serifs. The overall typographic voice of Lora perfectly conveys the mood of a modern-day story or an art essay.
Slabo is a collection of size-specific fonts for use in online advertising and other web uses. The collection currently includes this font, Slabo 27px, and Slabo 13px. Each font in the collection is fine-tuned for use at the pixel size in its name.
7. Titillium Web
Titillium is born inside the Accademia di Belle Arti di Urbino as a didactic project Course Type design of the Master of Visual Design Campi Visivi. The aim of the project is the creation of collective fonts released under OFL. Each academic year, a dozen students work on the project, developing it further and solving problems.
Mukta is a Unicode-compliant, versatile, contemporary, humanist, mono-linear typeface family available in seven weights, supporting Devanagari, Gujarati, Gurumukhi, Tamil, and Latin scripts. This type family is a libre-licensed version of Ek’s self-titled multi-script project, an ongoing effort to develop a unified type family for each Indian script.
Amiri is a classical Arabic typeface in the Naskh style for typesetting books and other running text. Its design is a revival of the beautiful typeface pioneered in the early 20th century by Bulaq Press in Cairo, also known as Amiria Press, after which the font is named.
10. Dancing Script
Dancing Script is a lively casual script where the letters bounce and change size slightly. The caps are big and go below the baseline. Dancing Script references popular script typefaces from the ’50s.
