When it comes to graphic design, there is no right or wrong way to choose the fonts that you will use. Sometimes you need to go with something simple and basic, and sometimes something with more flair is called for. This is a look at some of the most used fonts in graphic design, but they are not the only options that are available to you.
#1: Helvetica: This is one of the most heavily used fonts by professionals and amateurs in graphic design. Despite being so common, it is not ideal for every graphic design project.
#2: Trajan: Trajan is a relatively old-style serif font that was designed for Adobe. It often finds its way onto movie posters, religious graphic designs and images relating to class, law, marriage or the past.
#3: Garamond: This font is available in several forms, but the Adobe Garamond is the most common, especially in textbooks, magazines and relatively long blocks of text.
#4: Futura: This is a font that is regularly found in logos, large displays, corporate typefaces and in many books when a small but clear font is required. Futura is based on geometric shapes and has an efficiency-based appearance.
#5: Bodoni: This is a great choice when you need a font for logos, decorative text or headlines. It has a relatively narrow underlying structure along with flat and unbracketed serifs.
#6: Bickham Script Pro: This font is primarily used for formal occasions because it has a fancy look to it while still being readable. If you need an alternative to Bickham Script Pro, consider Sloop or Vivaldi.
#7: Frutiger: This font works well for display work and signage, booklets and magazines, and it often finds its way into Web 2.0 logos. This is a good font for these purposes and other purposes where you need an easily recognized font that is simple and easy to read.
