You’ve probably noticed certain big businesses re-branding to a more minimalist look in recent years. Examples include Tupperware, Dunkin Donuts, Apple, Slack, Facebook, even Google. More than just their logos, color schemes, and overall look and feel, the font they’ve used has also gone a makeover to appear cleaner, sleeker, and geometric.
What is geometric design?
Geometric design focuses on basic shapes and is rooted in mathematical principles of precision. It’s become popular nowadays because it’s simple, fits most modern concepts, and has an overall clean, minimalist appeal. You can apply this design to almost any industry: from creative fields like art, music, and beauty, to less casual niches such as finance, construction, and engineering.
Geometry doesn’t have to be limited to architecture. In fact, you can observe it in various symbols in different cultures and history around the world. The mandala for instance, an important symbol in Hindu and Buddhist beliefs, is a wonderful example of geometric configuration. Its repetitive patterns represent the cosmos, or being one with the universe.
How to use geometric fonts
Geometric fonts are normally sans serifs; but it’s not uncommon for them to have serif variants, too. You can look up Google fonts to see some good samples. One of the most well-known geometric fonts is Futura. There are a good number of brands that use it (or a variation of it) for their logos including Supreme, Best Buy, Houzz, Domino’s Pizza, USA Today, and FedEx.
If you’re working with projects that require a flat design or something neutral, sometimes, sans is better for legibility and appropriateness. Sans serifs are also easy to ‘dress up’ or ‘dress down’. You’ll have no problem pairing them with other fonts as well. Experiment with all kinds of serifs, signature fonts, or even decorative ones.
As always, do consult with your client before getting too excited.
