1. Bool font
The Bool is different from regular fun fonts. At first sight, it looks pretty geometric and cool, but let’s take a closer look.
First, some of the font’s counters are shifted, e.g., the letter B’s counters are closer toward the center and the right, which gives it a bit of a cross-eyed, fun look. The middle crossbars are thinner than the overall stroke width, giving the type a cartoon character.
Examples are the letters G, E, and F. Finally, the A’s crossbar is lower than usual, making it a friendly typeface. These fun characteristics are more pronounced in the bolder font weights, from Semibold to Black.
2. Lace font
Lace is a typeface in handwriting style. The thinner font weights, such as Extralight and Light, have a pen quality, whereas the bolder styles feature a marker-style stroke.
Each letter is drawn in one line creating fun loops.
Many of the letters of this typeface end in an upward stroke, giving the design a friendly look.
3. Sway font
The Sway font is a complete alphabet in uppercase letters only. This type is excellent for display text on posters but not particularly easy to read as body copy. Sway has a funky, futuristic style but, at the same time, looks modern and fun.
Sway’s letters are set in particular angles, giving letters a design pattern that makes them easy to use for logos.
4. Vole font
Vole is a typeface in upper and lowercase letters, including the extended Latin alphabet. Its primary design feature is the rounded counters that allow the strokes to bleed into each other, giving the type a bit of an ink character.
It is overall a geometric font with a Bauhaus font aesthetic. For example, the letters b, g, n, and r are missing the usually extended stems, adding to the rounded and fun feel throughout the typeface.
Vole is great for kids’ branding and especially cute when set in all lowercase.
5. Bau font
The Bau font is the predecessor font for Vole (see above). The typeface’s letters are based on circles, giving it a modular and fun quality.
Its i-dots are larger than standard dots, which adds to the friendliness of the design.
6. Skay font
Skay is another handwriting-style font that comes in nine weights. Especially its bolder weights are considered fun and friendly, in addition to having an organic personality. One famous example that uses this type of font is the Skims logo.
This type only has uppercase letters and numbers and is part of the bubble font family
7. Slye font
This type is not easy to read as text, but it’s cool and different. It showcases a personality that wants to be bold and stand out.
Slye is best used for posters and logo design, but it’s also fun to mix this font with another font. For example, if you want a specific letter to stand out more or communicate an aspect of “being split” or “different,” then this is an original choice.
8. Pout font
Reverse-contrast fonts have become popular over the past five years, and Pout is part of that design family. Reverse-contrast fonts are those whose strokes are thicker on the horizontal axis; usually, the vertical strokes are bolder.
The reversed design gives this font a quirky look, making it the perfect choice for logos and fun titles.
9. Rail font
The Rail font is similar to Bool (very top)—its counters are also shifted towards the centers. All crossbars are very thin. Rail comes with the alphabet in Latin characters and stylistic sets, for example, alternative designs for the lowercase letter i.
Stylistic sets are a design feature that makes it easy for designers to add more fun to any design, may that be for logos or funky titles on cards and t-shirts.
10. Goji font
The Goji font is a safe choice when it comes to picking a fun font for a project. It is a rounded geometric typeface, making it, first and foremost, a friendly font. However, since Goji also has additional letter designs, e.g., for the uppercase letter O, designers can easily create a fun design for kids’ creations.
The aspect of “fun” can be supported easily by picking the right color palette. Lighter and brighter colors, such as yellow, pink, a light green or bright red, help to get happiness across.
General note: Stylistic sets of a font can be accessed in design programs such as Canva, Figma, and Cricut. If you’re downloading and installing these fonts on Word, you can only type in the font’s regular letters.
