15 of the Best Business Fonts to Use For Your Logo

Your logo is the crown jewel of your brand, right? It's what you'll put on all of your collateral, from beer koozies to email signatures. And to get the perfect logo, all you need is a neat image!

Well, not exactly. You're missing a piece of the puzzle if that's all you think it takes to create a memorable brand logo.

You also have to consider what type of business font you want to use.

Why Business Fonts Matter

We're not joking when we say that you should take picking a font for your business very seriously. They're not just there for casual aesthetics.

Fonts have the power to reflect your brand's identity, personality, industry, and so much more.

Unfortunately, you don't have the same autonomy for your brand in picking the coolest WordArt effect as you did for your fourth grade science project. (Here's looking at you blue wave effect.)

Instead, you need to consider a more comprehensive list of elements to make sure that your messaging aligns with the rest of your branding.

And then you want to make sure it's pretty.

Elements of Modern Logo Fonts

There's a bittersweet nature to just how limitless the options are when it comes to logo and font pairings. You're truly only restricted by your own imagination (assuming you're in line with what works in your industry).

Thankfully, if you examine certain trends in contemporary logo fonts, you may be able to identify what will work the best in your favor.

Here are some key elements of modern business fonts today.

Serif or Sans Serif

The everlasting battle between these two font types is legendary. Honestly, in our opinion, one isn't better than the other. You have to pick whichever is going to match your brand's identity best.

Do you want the more official looking "feet" of the serif font family? Or are you a bit more casual and find sans serif styles more appealing?

Only you can decide which aligns with your brand's personality, but it is something you should be conscientious of.

Shape

This element requires you to examine your logo graphic in relation to the font.

There's a lot of visual communication that comes out of a logo, and you want that messaging to be clear. So making sure that your graphic and typography work together is important.

Does your logo's graphic rely more on circles, ovals, and curves? You'll want to look at font styles that follow those same lines. The same goes for logos that feature harsh angles, squares, and spikes.

The goal should always be to have something unique and creative, but considering how your font choice compares or contrasts with your graphic's shape and design can make a big difference.

Size

Playing around with the size and weight of your fonts can always give insight into just how dynamic your logo can be.

And depending on your brand, that can be a good thing or a bad thing.

If your brand's style guide is composed mostly of subtle, delicate touches, then you'll want to steer clear of large, bold fonts. And the same goes for the opposite end of the spectrum. A rock band probably shouldn't rely on a thin, cursive font.

Readability

Hands down, this is the most important element on this list.

Nothing else matters if no one can read your business font.

via GIPHY

It doesn't matter how cool your font is, it has to be legible. Your logo is one of the main visual elements of your brand that people will remember and associate your business with.

If all they can recall is a jumbled collection of shapes, they're not going to know what to do with it, let alone be able to search you on Google for solutions to their problems.

15 of the Best Logo Fonts

Now, we could try to cover every potential business font choice available, but then this blog would never actually get published because it'd just keep going, especially since new fonts are developed all the time.

Instead, we'll go over some of the most unique logo fonts in different industries that will certainly stand out from the rest of the crowd.

Business

Whether you're a marketing firm or an insurance agency, there's no shame in giving your logo a bit of flair with a cool font in your logo.

4. Indigo

10. Baltica
