Modern calligraphy fonts have been all the rage for several years now, and it’s been really interesting to see how this typography trend has evolved since it first came onto the scene. Typefaces that are inspired by traditional calligraphy have been around for years, and there are so many beautiful ones to choose from, but many of today’s calligraphy-inspired fonts have a modern sensibility that’s unique to the currently trending aesthetic. It’s a look that’s chic and sophisticated yet casual and carefree at the same time, and I’m absolutely lovin’ this look.
When more modern calligraphy style typefaces started coming onto the market, fonts like Asterism by Great Lakes Lettering and Nelly Script by Tart Workshop led the way. Over the past couple of years, more textured, brush-style fonts like Madina Script and Northwell, both by Sam Parrett, have been all the rage.
Now, we’re starting to see the next crop of hot fonts emerging, and these modern calligraphy fonts have a look that’s more monoline or, at the very least, with more of a subtle contrast between thick and thin line weights. These fonts are casual yet chic, sophisticated yet carefree, totally gorgeous, and perfect for modern wedding invitations and stationery designs. Coupled with a Didot-esque serif (another trending font style), these casual calligraphy script fonts are simply perfect.
Here are 5 examples from the current crop of chic calligraphy fonts, and I want them all! Yeah, I’m a little greedy when it comes to pretty fonts. And by “a little”, I mean a lot.
