In a recent post, Principles of Page Design: Selecting Journaling Fonts, I wrote about how to pick the right fonts for layout journaling. Then, I posted sixteen of my favorite serif fonts for text. This post will link you up with some of my favorite sans-serif (without little hooks on the letters) fonts for journaling. I love the look of sans-serif fonts when I want a sleek, modern or playful feel to my journaling. I’ve selected a few of my favorite sans-serif fonts for you to try:
Florence: A free sans-serif font with an elegant design.
Gill Sans: One of my very favorite sans serifs. I love the 1930′s vibe inspired by the typeface of the London Underground.
Eras Medium: A very versatile member of the ITC Eras font family.
Labtop: Gorgeous clean lines with a unique lowercase t, Labtop comes in numerous weights and versions.
OCR B Meduim: When I want to be techy, I use OCR-B.
Quaver Sans: I love the capital Q in this font which also comes in a serif version.
Agency FB: Scientific sans serif with a space-age feel, Agency FB is great for small amounts of text and journaling.
Calibri: Versatile font for just about any type of journaling.
Futura: One of my most favorite twentieth-century fonts, Futura typifies Bauhaus style.
Hypatia Sans Pro: Sleek geometric sans-serif with interesting lowercase a letters.
Maiandra GT: This font is so fun to look at! I love the shape of the letters.
Neutra Text: Part of the NeutraFace font family, Neutra Text has a wonderful mid-century modern feel.
Maven Pro: Streamlined lower-case letters add a modern feel to this font.
Edmond Sans: Sleek font with three different weights.
