Looking for some excellent modern fonts? Look no further.

I love Modern Serif Fonts!

I’m not one of those people that think that serifs mean something is old our outdated. I believe serif fonts are readable, legible, and can come off in a very classy but sophisticated way. Here are some modern serif fonts to consider!

georgia-modern-serif-fonts

Georgia has a classic look, but it is clearly a modern alternative to some other outdated and overused serifs. Georgia is designed for clarity on a computer monitor even at small sizes, partially effective due to a large x-height.

bree-serif-modern-serif-fonts

Bree Serif is a unique but not overly frilly slab serif that has just enough character to really give it a unique feel, without it being overly stylized.

didot-modern-serif-fonts

Didot has some hairline elements in it that can disappear it smaller sizes, but it is nonetheless a high contrast, modern serif winner that is an important addition to the font lovers arsenal.

Museo Slab is a ridiculously good looking slab serif with a ton of heart and an endless amount of ways to pair it. As a title font it has character and panache.

bodoni-modern-serif-fonts

Bodoni feels a bit more classic than modern, but it’s versatility as a classic font earn it a place on the modern serif fonts list as it’s uses could be very modern indeed.

baskerville-modern-serif-fonts

Baskerville is another case of classic with modern uses. Don’t be afraid of going classic in a modern setting.

rockwell-modern-serif-fonts

Rockwell is a seriously cool serif font with a bit of a hipster vibe, and a diverse array of uses limited only by your imagination.

ugly-qua-hipster-fonts-vintage-modern-serif-fonts

Ugly Qua is probably my favorite font on this list perhaps because of it’s tastefully unique character – if you like this, you may like our ‘hipster fonts‘ post. It’s a display serif perhaps, and it’s uses could be in a place where you’re looking for a vintage font, but perhaps in a place where elegance is key it would play well as a refreshing juxtaposition.
