Fonts come in all shapes and sizes, but when it comes to poster design, there are certain types of fonts that can help you make bold statements and attract attention. In this post, we feature some of the best fonts for posters you can use to create the perfect poster design.

It’s quite difficult to generalize poster design. There are just too many types of posters that require various design standards. For example, a poster you design for a business conference and a poster you make for a summer beach party will require completely different designs, including different colors, shapes, layouts, and more importantly, fonts.

When creating this collection of fonts, we decided to cover all categories of poster designs and include both formal and casual fonts you can use to design titles, headers, and text for various types of posters. We’re also featuring a set of tips for choosing a poster font to help get you started.

Hopefully you’ll find the perfect typeface that matches your project!

3. Pick the Right Font Pair

When talking about poster fonts we usually only consider the title font, but let’s not forget about the subheadings and body text. Only with the right combination of the title font and paragraph font you can design an effective and impactful poster. Make sure to find a matching font pair for your project.

4. Consider Sans-Serif

Chillow font

Unless you’re designing a poster for a corporate business event or a luxury brand, consider using sans-serif fonts for your poster design. Sans-serif fonts not only improve readability but they also make your poster text and titles clearly visible from a distance.

5. Narrow Fonts Are Better

Tallios Font

Narrow and condensed fonts are usually a great choice for designing a poster title. Especially when it’s a long title a narrow font offers a great opportunity to squeeze in more letters without cluttering the design. However, be mindful not to choose a font with too narrow spacing that affects readability.
