20 Serif Fonts of 2022

Graphic Design20 Serif Fonts of 2022

If colors have meaning, so do font styles. And today, we’re taking a peek at the top picks for serif fonts this 2022.

Probably a bit late, but it’s an excellent way for you to do your rebrand or just start making your brand look professional, intellectual, and have authority in the industry. You can use them in all your documents or as your logo design.

Join us as we peek at this year’s serif fonts below.

Serif Fonts and Branding

Serif fonts are, what one could say, the classics of font styles. Serifs first appeared in 1780, created by two designers: Firmin Didot and Giambattista Bodoni.

From their modern serif design came slab serifs in 1815 called Antique. Slab serifs lack the curves that make modern serifs distinct.

And now, we have digitized both to help you better establish your brand identity. And like color psychology that says colors have meaning, fonts have meanings behind them too.

Serifs have multiple meanings. Add a feel of culture and class to your brand with various serifs. Some of the common ones also have personalities like:

  • Playfair Display = Formal
  • Libre-Baskerville = Traditional
  • Georgia = Reliable
  • Times New Roman = Sophisticated
  • Frank Ruhl Libre = Classic
  • Antic Didone = Respectable
  • Gilda Display = Authoritative

Either way, if you want your brand to look more professional, trustworthy, nostalgic, or old, this is the font you use. Some famous brands that use this font style are:










The New York Times

Tiffany & Co.



Each of these top-tier brands is well-known in its respective industries as one of the authority. Brand yourself like them and use serif fonts.
