Creative, quirky & beautiful decorative fonts

It would take one heck of a brave designer to actually use these fonts on a web page or print magazine. They’ve simply not been designed for clear legibility.

Creative, quirky & beautiful decorative fonts

Unlike other, more commonand usable fonts, each of these typefaces have their own individual and unique characteristics. Some might even say they’re a little bit eccentric and odd. I like to think they’re creative, quirky, and in their own way, beautiful.

So, please don’t use these fonts in anything that needs to be clearly read. Really, don’t do that. But if you’re designing a logo, a CD cover, a poster, or even some invites, and are looking to give your typography a touch of unique creativity, then these decorative fonts are most definitely for you.

Avanth Font Family (OTF)

Avanth is an uppercase font family that’s just brimming with personality. Every single one of the letters has been uniquely designed by using some simple geometric shapes like circles, squares and straight lines.

Dejavu Font (OTF)

The Dejavu font family has been designed to represent the passing of time. When the time shift is to the left this represents the past, the solid letter represents the present, and when the time shift is to the right this represents the future.
