10 favourite modern sans-serif font collection for 2021

Over the past few months, I have come across many great free sans-serif fonts. Here are just some that I've used in my most recent projects.

Sometimes it can be difficult to find perfect font, but you really don't need large collection. Choosing the right typeface can have large impact on overall feel of the design. Depending on the project, I only rotate few of them at times.

1. Plus Jakarta Sans

Plus Jakarta Sans Plus Jakarta Sans is a versatile modern type family designed for +Jakarta City Branding in 2020, where each glyph has its own varieties with its own different characteristics.

2. Noah

Noah Noah is a great geometric sans which provides 4 styles for free. With sharp details and a distinctive arrangement, it further extends the limits of the x-height, providing unparalleled flexibility.

3. Spartan

5. Swansea

6. Kumbh Sans

Kumbh Sans Kumbh Sans is a geometric font envisioned to serve as a multi-purpose font in modern web and mobile applications. Currently I use it on my site for text.

8. Manrope

Manrope Manrope font is free for personal and commercial use. It's open-source and was recently converted to a variable font.

9. Strawford

Strawford Strawford is another great font from Atipo Foundry. You can get it by paying what you want starting from 15EUR.

10. Lexend
