Anything nowadays can be turned into a work of art. Whether it’s a photo or a social media bio, we have all kinds of tools to express ourselves and our distinct tastes.
What makes a font aesthetic?
It’s pretty difficult to establish what makes something ‘aesthetic’, especially in terms of fonts. But in general, aesthetic fonts are stylish, unique, and fit for its intended purpose. Many of them are modern, custom typefaces. Though you’ll be surprised how traditional fonts can fulfill a similar role, too.
A good example would be Helvetica Bold. Simple and unassuming, this well-known font can also be applied when creating social media quotes or Tumblr posts because it remains legible, regardless of size. To make it more aesthetic, opt for all-caps with a plain white color. Set it against any colorful backdrop for an interesting effect.
Other samples of aesthetic fonts include: VHS fonts for vintage or retro concepts; yellow subtitle fonts for quoting movies; 80s cursive fonts for postcards, posters, or music album covers; bubbly fonts for fun, VSCO-type looks; and clean, minimalist fonts for magazine-style pieces.
