Best Adobe Fonts

Typography and font may not seem like the most important part of a design project, but the wrong font can have almost disastrous results.

Font is one of the first things a consumer picks up on, and if that font is unreadable, or doesn’t convey the right tone, they look away.

Unfortunately, picking that exact right font is rarely an easy choice, especially if you have a lot to choose from.

When scrolling through all the fantastic options available on Adobe Fonts, it’s easy to get lost in the list.

Which can lead to choosing a sub-par font, simply because we no longer have the capacity to look anymore.

To help you narrow down your search, we’ve compiled a list of some of the best fonts available on Adobe Fonts.

What Is Adobe Fonts?

Adobe Fonts is an online library of fonts, available to those with a Creative Cloud subscription. Formerly known as Typekit, Adobe Fonts offers access to some of the best fonts around.

With Adobe Fonts, a designer has thousands of fonts from a vast range of talented designers right at their fingertips.

All kinds of font styles are available, from the formal to the fun, the academic to the archaic.

How To Use Adobe Fonts

If you have an Adobe Creative Cloud subscription, then you’re essentially ready to use Adobe Fonts. Simply toggle the switch when you want to activate a font, and you’re ready to go.

When you’re done with the font, you can either toggle it off, or leave it active.

All the fonts on Adobe Fonts are available for both commercial and personal use. Adobe Fonts uses Open Type licensing.

One of the really great things about Adobe Fonts is that it’s included in many Adobe subscriptions. This gives you easy access to a library of fonts like no other.

For the creator who is looking to take their work to the next level, this is an invaluable resource.

Some subscriptions only offer limited access to the font library, but the majority of Creative Cloud subscriptions allow you to use the full amount.

So, if you want to use Adobe Fonts, you simply need to purchase a subscription, find a font you want, and start designing.

The Best Adobe Fonts

1. Acumin

Acumin is one of the most popular fonts offered, because of the elegant versatility this sans-serif typeface provides.

Designed to be easy to read at all sizes, the clean style is balanced perfectly to pair with a vast range of more complicated designs.

It’s available in 90 different styles, with five widths, nine weights, and matching italics. A truly great font for any design that values readability and simplicity.

2. Cormorant Garamond

Garamond is a recognizable name even for those who don’t know fonts at all, and the Cormorant Garamond is a delightful play on the classic design.

It’s ideal for large posters, with a stylish ease that keeps the typeface modern. With ten styles available, this is a font with a classic look, which can either take center stage, or slide into the background.

3. Orpheus

A refined typeface with a 1920s twist, Orpheus is perfect for creating designs that are both vintage and contemporary.

The four styles available work best when paired with a low-key font, to allow Orpheus to really shine. It’s ideal for entertainment design, but also goes well with luxury retail. 

4. Lust

Lust isn’t exactly a shy and retiring font – this is about big, bold, and fabulous. The lush curves are combined with sharp and sudden serifs, for a typeface that’s hard to look away from.

And that’s exactly what Lust is for. Designed to be displayed loud and proud – the focal point of your design – Lust is about catching the attention and keeping it.

5. Neue Haas Grotesk

One of the most popular fonts available on Adobe Fonts, Neue Haas Grotesk is designed to work with just about anything.

Intended as a callback to the original Helvetica, Neue Haas Grotesk is sans-serif perfection. The lines are bold and very easy to read, and almost any typeface looks chic in combination.

If you’re new to Adobe Fonts, Neue Haas Grotesk needs to be one of the first fonts activated.

6. Brothers

Brothers is a typeface modelled after circus advertising, and an eye-catching design pulled from the turn of the century.

This is a font that works best in capitals, designed to call to you from a distance. The old-fashioned styling is perfect for companies who deal in craftsmanship and hard work, but it’s also playful.

Use for designs that don’t have to take themselves too seriously.

7. Granville

The six types of Granville available from Adobe Fonts play on a mixture of thick and thin. The easy construction gives it a timeless appeal that can work with a vast range of designs.

It’s both simple and complicated, and can be dressed down or up depending on pairings.

8. Lapture

Lapture is an immediately recognizable font, with a fun design for headings. In bold, it’s strangely old-fashioned, with the unusual edges giving it a distinct look.

In regular, it has a different appeal. Somehow modern, with a refined elegance thanks to those blackletter shapes and roman lettering. Pair it with something simple, so that Lapture is able to speak for itself.

9. Aktiv Grotesk

The forty-eight styles of Aktiv Grotesk (including italics) makes it another option that should be one of your first activations on Adobe Fonts.

This is a typeface that supports almost anything, with a simple warmth that allows for clear and concise messaging.

Once you start to use Aktiv Grotesk, you’ll soon come to rely on the easy readability and bold elegance to guide your designs.

10. Termina

Termina is a font with wide proportions designed to be readable at almost any size. It looks incredible for modern designs, and manages to be loud without shouting.

Particularly good in capitals, Termina has an immediate appeal with a twist of the retro. Use it for all things media: movies and music are particularly good matches for Termina.

Final Thoughts

The Huion Kamvas Pro 13 has several advantages over the previous version of this tablet. For one thing, it’s significantly more durable thanks to its aluminum-backed construction.

The glass is also more scratch-resistant as well as anti-glare, so it’s a win for the Pro 13 both in terms of durability and eye protection. 

However, unlike the previous version of the tablet, the Kamvas Pro 13 doesn’t support Android devices. It’s also not compatible with versions of Windows or Mac before Windows 7 and Mac 10.12.

So, if you’re looking for increased compatibility, the Kamvas Pro 13 might disappoint. 

Overall, though, we have been impressed with the quality and functionality of the Huion Kamvas Pro 13.

It’s lightweight, space-efficient, and highly ergonomic thanks to its tilt-adjustability, adjustable stand, and pen holder.

Plus, the included battery-free pen provides a selection of 8192 drawing levels for artistic flexibility in addition to a complete sRGB color range. 

The main issue we found with the Pro 13 tablet is the fact that it doesn’t work unless connected to a power source or PC via HDMI or USB.

This means that the tablet can’t easily be used on the go, limiting its portability and practicality.
