Which are the 7 fonts that professional designers decided to use in 2021 for their best projects?
I was very curious to find out the answer for this question so I discussed with almost 20 top graphic designers from all over the world. I used my personal contacts but also the help of 4 international and local agencies.
If professional designers would use these fonts, that means we should also take a look. For sure we will find some great fonts for our upcoming projects.

GT America font
GT America is the missing bridge between 19th century American Gothics and 20th century European Neo-Grotesk typefaces.
It uses the best design features from both traditions in the widths and weights where they function optimally.
Designed by Noël Leu, with Seb McLauchlan. Script extensions by Grilli Type with Tania Chacana. Consulting by Maria Doreuli (Cyrillics), Vassilis Georgiou (Greek), Donny Trương (Vietnamese).
Released in 2016 Available in 84 styles.
For nearly 90 years, Paul Renner’s Futura has been as popular as it is versatile—from children’s books to fashion magazines to the plaque on the Moon.
Futura is a typographic icon. Futura Now offers designers a chance to see Futura with fresh eyes.
It’s more truly Futura-like than any digital version you’ve ever worked with.
“It brings some much-needed humanity back to the world of geometric sans serifs,” says Steve Matteson, Monotype’s Creative Type Director who led the design team. “Despite its reputation as the ultimate modern typeface, Futura Now is surprisingly warm,” he explains.
“It’s just as at home set next to a leafy tree as it is next to a stainless-steel table, because it skillfully navigates the border between super-clean geometry and humanist warmth.”
Anguita Sans is a condensed sans serif font family of 8 weights with matching italics- 16 styles in all.
The font is characterized by rounded terminals, a large x-height and a condensed structure, which allows you to create a good vertical rhythm.
Anguita Sans is a stylish and versatile typeface perfectly suitable for a wide range of applications- especially titles and short lines of text, in both print and digital media.

Versus is a type system designed for use with short and block text. The font, based on well-known typefaces found on boxing posters, combines Latin American elements and wrestling; it is this mixture of widths and weights and different styles which helps give your designs a unique flavour and personality.
