On the hunt for some modern font pairings to help elevate your brand? I’ve got you covered. Modern and minimalist design go hand-in-hand. Think about some of your favorite modern brands–Apple, Nike, and Tesla come to mind. What do they have in common, apart from creating highly in-demand products with almost a cult-like following? They all feature a minimalist visual brand identity.
When it comes to creating a modern and minimalist brand, simple typography goes a long way. Choosing the right font pairing for your brand is an important part of establishing the look and feel you’re going for. If you’re looking to establish a clean and minimalist brand identity, check out the below modern font pairings for inspiration. All of these fonts, except Glacial Indifference, are available to download for free at Google Fonts. Glacial Indifference is available at Font Squirrel.

You may have noticed that most of these modern font pairings feature sans serif typefaces. Geometric, sans serif fonts inherently have a clean and minimalist look to them. That said, don’t be afraid to play around with other styles as well. Lora is a serif font, but as you can see, it still gives off a modern and minimalist vibe. Typefaces are important, but they’re only one piece of the branding puzzle. Other factors that contribute to a minimalist brand identity include imagery, color, and layout.
