Geometric typefaces have been building up their popularity from the very first beginning which was in 1920.

With all of that and with their minimalistic look these fonts bring us modern and futuristic vibes. However, not only tech and scientific designs can be made, they are also great for logos and business cards which display the strength of their structure. So if you like minimalism and geometric shapes this type of fonts are great for you and for enriching design in 2018.

They are great for web design, photography and mostly they are all sans serif fonts which do not require much work but on the other hand they are go-to type trend 2018.

Retro is always on top when we talk about fonts, so is this year too. Their popularity is always incredibly high.Basically this style was used in photography by adding filters on photos so they would look more old and by that and because of social media this trend continues in typography. It is perfect for getting back to the past and bring back to life some old memories. To make a font such as this, you have to take more time and work with various textures, shadows, rust, dots and lines. If you need inspiration you can always look back in 70's-90's photographs. Conclusion, you can never go wrong with retro font.
