10 Rounded Fonts for Offbeat Designs

The physical world might be converging to sleek styles but the creative world bows to no rules. Rather, it morphs itself to fit in the ever-changing human sentiments in a way that leaves us tongue-tied. Below are some fonts that can be categorized as rounded, and are so awesome that you’ll be compelled to use them.

1. Ghost Cove

Quite aptly named, Ghost Cove by Anthony James, certainly awakens the imagination. Even as a static image, you can actually trace the formation of each letter – the emphasis on the top-left corners as the letter begins up to the light trail on the bottom-right, as it comes to a halt.

It is free for both personal and commercial use.

2. Synthesia

Designer Cahya Sofyan found inspiration in the bass sound of the Minimoog to create this typeface. In Cahya’s words, Synthesia is a representation of this “fun, dynamic and vintage” sound.

The font is freely available for both personal and commercial use.

3. Cebo

Short, simple and minimalistic (just like its name), Cebo can be quite an attention-seeker when used creatively. Designed by Khurasan,  the font comes in 5 variations of light, twin, expand, shadow and bold.

It can be used for both personal and commercial use for free.

4. Perfograma

Guess what inspired designer Asen Petrov to create this font? The computing machines IBM Harvard – Mark 1 that read instructions from a 24-channel punched paper tape to execute instructions. Surely, inspiration and creativity have no limits!

Perfograma is a free typeface and can be used for personal and commercial projects.

5. Futuracha

Futuracha = Futura + Cucaracha (cockroach in Spanish)

At first glance, the font might look weird (like the meaning of the name) but when used smartly, it can create stunning effects. Team Holy has based the design on the foundations of the futura book. The font includes Greek and Latin letters, numbers and symbols.

The sad news is, this font was free for 5 years, and finally the makers have realized its worth. The only way to get this now is to purchase it from their website. There are four types of licenses beginning  from 25€.

6. Hamurz

Hipster is Hamurz. No, I meant Hamurz is Hipster. No matter how you put it, the essence remains the same. Creator Bagus Budiyanto has designed three variations of the font: clean, rough and vintage. While the clean style works great for body content, the vintage style speaks for itself, and works great for logos.

10. Quito

Created by Fabian Korn, the designer who gave us the famous font from Black Panther, Quito alone is enough to catch the eye. Speaking of round fonts, this is the perfect example of the type – round and clean. It is said to have been inspired from a South American tribe.

Quito can be used for personal as well as commercial projects for free.

So, that’s it. Too many good things together can be overwhelming which is why we’d take a break from the list for now. So, which typeface are you going to choose for your next project?
