They all feature a minimalist visual brand identity.

When it comes to creating a minimalist brand identity, simple typography goes a really long way. Choosing the right font pairing for your brand is extremely important to establishing the right look and feel. So if you’re looking to establish a minimalist brand identity, check out the below modern font pairings for inspiration.

You may have noticed that most of these modern font pairings feature sans serif typefaces. Sans serif fonts intrinsically have a more 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.
