Fonts that I like to use frequently

While there are a lot of free fonts available on Google Fonts1, there are a few fonts that I think are special.

1. Epilogue

2. DM Sans

If you like Circular Std (used by Spotify and Netflix), you will like DM Sans. I think it is the closest equivalent to Circular.

3. Manrope

I like Proxima Nova. While Manrope is not exactly similar to it, however, it surely gives me the same vibes.

4. Poppins

Poppins is a geometric font with a typical ‘a’ - very clean and beautiful.

(APIC Blocks also uses Cal Sans by for headings - really goes well with Poppins.

5. Lexend

Lexend font was created to improve reading experience. Learn more on

6. Outfit

Outfit has a typical ‘t’ and in general a playful character. Yet, it comes out to be very readable.

Other Fonts

A few other fonts that I like:

  1. Mukta for Devanagari
  2. Hammersmith One for headings
  3. Space Grotesk
  4. Inter (very good font, however, as a result also heavily used)

Also, a special mention to Monospace fonts that I frequently use:

  1. Roboto Mono
  2. DM Mono
  3. Space Mono
  4. Courier Prime (better version of Courier and Courier New)
