6 Must-See Gorgeous + Minimalist Fonts (On Canva!)
Updated: Feb 14
Oh, how I love a minimal and elegant font.
Is it just me or could you stare at some minimalist fonts all. day. long?! There's a time and place for every variety of font, but lately, I (and what seems like a good portion of the world) can't get enough of minimal fonts that are simultaneously casual and sophisticated.
I think that's probably why I love 'em.
As a digital creator and general life-liver, my happy place is most definitely a perfect balance between classy and chill.
Like, I wanna wear sneakers and cozy fits 99% of the time, but I'll be damned if the colors don't flow together and my socks don't match.
Dressed down, yet put together and ready for a paparazzi pic—which is just how I see these minimalist fonts that you can find right on Canva.
Wait, Who's Canva?
I have to make sure I cover my bases here so you know what I'm talking about.
And you wanna know. Canva is a user-friendly graphic design platform that everyone from newbies to professionals turn to for a quick design tool.
Canva has both a free and a paid version, so no matter how steep your design needs are there really is something for everyone.
Canva helps you save hours of time creating graphics because it's got premade templates for almost everything under the sun:
all the social media sizes you could need
greeting cards email headers
...you name it.
I say Canva is a quick tool, yet I spend hours on it each week (haha). Don't worry though, it's not because Canva isn't quick and easy.
It's because it's so quick and easy I can't stop creating with it!
You can spend 2 minutes on the app to create a quick graphic for your Instagram, or you can use your premium account to do even more incredible things, like:
edit backgrounds out of photos
layer elements on top of each other for a new look
scroll through the hundreds of font options, and use a number of other fantastic tools.
Premium account or not, there's so much you can do.
One more important thing to note before I show you the best Canva fonts I'm using right now: make sure you read this content agreement and make sure you're not doing anything illegal with Canva.
With fonts, you're most likely in the clear for the majority of things you could possibly be doing, but it's good to be aware, especially if you're going to be selling the things you create.
Best Minimalist Fonts On Canva
Why use a minimalist font?
Minimal fonts are simple and clean, yet bring an element of sophistication and edge.
There's definitely a range too; you can lean more toward the edgy side with unique lines, or more toward the casual side with thin, blockier lines.
In general, minimal fonts are airy and easy to read.
Minimalist fonts are great for beauty and lifestyle brands, making them look friendly and welcoming.
They also show off style in an effortless and airy way.
Minimalist fonts are good for headings because they are highly legible.
I find minimal fonts to be expressive, saying a lot without giving a lot.
Here are some of my favorite fonts on Canva at the moment. I've also included whether you can get them in the free version of Canva or if you'd need a pro account.
