3. Gultic Font Envato Elements
Typefaces that blend Seventies curves with Art Nouveau fluidity will be big news in 2023. Gultic Font combines eye-catching vintage and retro elements with a clean sans serif display style, striking the perfect balance between old and new.

With Seventies editorial typefaces set to be a big trend in 2023, elegant and refined Distingué is sure to bring refinement to your magazine and website designs. A typeface that wouldn’t look out of place on the credits of The Godfather, these retro fonts bring old-world, luxurious charm to any design.
5. Stima Envato Elements
Scripts will go stripped-back and simple in 2023, losing any excess fuss and flourishes. Stima is a minimal script font with a super-stylish mood; use for giving sartorial flair to signatures, logos or quotes.

Chunky, squishy and slightly slanted, Fatlip is a great example of the friendly-retro font styles that are set to be popular across branding and websites in 2023. Characterful and handwritten without compromising on legibility, these fat display fonts are irresistibly huggable!
9. Engeraly Envato Elements
With serif typefaces having dominated graphic design for the last couple of years, we’ll start to see a gradual move towards serifs that feel cleaner and more minimalist in mood.

10. Rustea Envato Elements
Retro and simple, typefaces like Rustea give a nostalgic nod to earlier decades—a major font trend for 2023—while maintaining crisp lines and excellent readability. Pair these simple retro fonts with strong colours and photography for a bold, impactful look.
