You have definitely been in the situation when looking for something specific takes you longer than the rest of the design process. Maybe it’s the search for a perfect image or video, or perhaps (as most design tasks go) it’s finding the perfect font. The search can take a couple of hours of your precious time and can leave you face-to-face with an approaching deadline.

For you not to spend long hours stressing and searching for that one and only font among thousands of others, we’ve put together a collection of 20 light weight and free minimalistic fonts that will fit your designs.

Key features of minimalism

It has already been a couple of decades since minimalism became an integral part of our lives and many don’t really pay attention to those features that differ minimalism from other styles. Minimalist designs and especially minimalist fonts, give viewers room to think. There’s enough space to admire something as fundamental as lines, shapes, and colors in composition when minimalistic fonts don’t distract the eye.

Air, cleanness and natural colours allow designers to convey the true essence of the object. Balance, symmetry and perfectionism are also important characteristics that, in the first instance, make your design aesthetically pleasant and easy to comprehend, while pattern repetition and geometric shapes help further simplify minimalist designs.

Quite often, minimalistic design requires a particular minimalist font that will make your idea look accomplished. Depending on the purpose of your project, you can choose a font or a couple of fonts that are 100% free or free only for personal use.
