Since most of what you consume online is written in text (content), it helps to create designs that complement the kind of stories and insights you’re sharing. For blogs, it’s slightly easier, since most use the same type of fonts all around. However, if you’re a passionate designer building your own portfolio, great typography could be the meaningful addition to capture attention and make others take notice of your excellent design skills.
There exist great online tools that you can use to learn about the kind of fonts other websites are using. Although, sometimes, you’ve got an idea already in your mind and all you need is some resources to help you fulfill that idea. In this particular scenario, it’s in regards to hipster fonts. Hipster typography is usually considered as free-flowing fonts that are ideal for use in videos, interactive infographics, and other dynamic media environments. That’s not to say that they won’t work with your content pages; you can arrange and achieve anything and everything if you’ve got the determination.
We handpicked these fonts and spent several hours of weeding through different types of hipster fonts, and have created what we believe is the most up to date, and indeed the most impressive collection of hipster fonts on the web. Although, that is not to discredit those who’ve tried to make these lists before. We love to support content creators, which is just another reason why we put so much effort into producing these collections for all of our community members to enjoy. Typography designers reading this post are more than welcome; we encourage you to share their own hipster fonts in the comments. Custom work is always beautiful, and there needs to be support for those who create and share freely.

Mono fonts have always had that static feel about them, but Monohipster enhances it through bends and intricate twists that make this font a beautiful choice for bikers, rock bands, and hipsters who love to add a little bit of toughness to their designs.

It’s hardly a secret that hipsters enjoy their dose of psychedelic treats; marijuana, magic mushrooms, sometimes even synthetic drugs like LSD. If you have ever been traveling you will know how much people try to avoid locations where it is full of hipsters, the vibes there although not dangerous tend to be quite smoky and not so appealing to the regular traveler who wants to chill and relax. Everyone has their own way of living the life, and we’re certainly not judging.

Catholic School Girls
The names for some of these fonts might seem a little bit of the rails. But suppose that everyone has their take on what a hipster font would be like. Catholic School Girls is more of a girly/trendy handwritten font to be used in comics or fun projects. Not so different from the previous font either, though with a little bit more added curves and such. A good use example would be writing digital invitation letters or sending messages to your friends.
Architext will suit formal projects for architects and those with pencil precision for detail. The letters have been individually handwritten, and have a sense of formality to them.

The letters are tightly tied together, and feature a colored in letter spacing, but enough to leave some empty spaces out to add that funky feel to it.
