Speaking to type designers Terrance Weinzierl at Monotype and Fernando Mello at Fontsmith for our How To Design A Typeface feature, it was undecided what typefaces are expected to trend in 2017.

Geometric sans serifs had its time in the limelight, and Terrance expects this to continue. Fernando believes its over for neo-grotesque and neo-geometric. Whatever the case, we’re still seeing casual brush script typefaces emerge, with a returned connection to human creations.

Here are some of the latest typefaces released by foundries or individual designers including Fontsmith and Monotype.

The typeface families in this feature aren’t free, but you can check out our feature of 28 free fonts if that’s what you’re looking for. We know they are 'typefaces' and not 'fonts', but for SEO purposes, we’ve chosen to use the word font in our headline.

Feel free to let us know if you’ve released a new typeface as we look to expand the list.
