Isn’t it amazing how much a font can take you from ‘okay’ to WOW in 2 seconds!
It’s no wonder, why we’ve been creating a lot of main image scrolling design overlays for our clients (and ourselves). See above and below examples.
Today, I wanted to share with you a few of my favorite fonts and examples of how you too can use them for your own blog and social media channels… to kick things up a notch!
Here are a few ways that you can use fonts to step up your blogging game:
- For branding and main image overlays
- Photo CTA’s (call to action – as seen in my cookie main image photo above)
- Internal page layout designs to sell services or products on your site
- To break up text on a page or post
- To create an ‘ad image’ to promote a sale or products in your blog post
- As an overlay on your Instagram Stories, Pinterest, or other social media images
My Favorite Modern and Script Fonts
- Adora Bouton luxury script
This light and wispy modern calligraphy script font is absolutely gorgeous! It is the crème de la crème modern calligraphy font with contemporary, sophisticated accents.
- Miller Salt Script
It’s two hand written dry brush scripts in one. You can use these fonts together or separately. Just replace the letters you need to make your design look perfect. Note: I used Miller Salt for the word ‘gorgeous’ in the main blog post image above.
A chic, modern font with a thin minimalist edge is probably my favorite at the moment! The realistic hand-lettered style is perfect for blogging, social media, branding, main image overlays… pretty much anything and everything! haha
Introducing a classy, contemporary pair of script and serif fonts. With a stylish didot-style serif font and a free-flowing, expressive script companion. Silver South offers beautiful typographic harmony for a diversity of design projects – probably my second favorite font right now! Note: I used the Silver South serif font for the ‘HELLO’ in the main blog post image above.
The Malisia Script has that kind of flowy modern, clean script vibe that so many love. This font also contains several ligatures and alternate style stylistic sets for those of you who have software that is able to work OpenType (Photoshop / Illustrator / InDesign) fonts.
A clean and classy signature-style font set, perfect for creating authentic hand-lettered text quickly & easily. I like the playfulness of the exaggerated strokes and an extra bouncy baseline.
Quas is the perfect serif typeface to create sleek and elegant headlines and logo designs. It pairs well with both script and sans-serif fonts and features multiple weights and styles. Plus it has a stencil and regular format (seen below) which is lovely!
I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing my favorite modern and script fonts + how to use them! Hopefully I’ve inspired you to do something a little bit more ‘fancy’ with your blog and branding!
