Font of the Week

About Fruktur

This week we are featuring a unique marketing font, Fruktur. Fruktur is a playful display font with a warm feeling. Fruktur takes inspiration from the construction of Blackletters. As we have mentioned in the UnifrakturMaguntia issue, Blackletter is a font style that originated from Western Europe in the 11th Century.

Blackletter has several styles—all share common characteristics of sharp angular lines with significant contrasts. This is where Fruktur differs and takes a more friendly, modern, and legible route - the strokes are thick and pleasant to the eye, with a luscious and brushy vibe.

How to use Fruktur for logo?

A unique and eye-catching font, Fruktur’s thick, brushy strokes have a distinctive warm tone that feels more casual and urban. Its strokes are thick and legible, perfect for logos.

How to use Fruktur for marketing and branding?

Fruktur’s thick strokes are fantastic visual textures for swag, packaging, social posts, and animations. Since it has more “color” and black shapes by having thick strokes, it should not be used in paragraphs and should be used in large display sizes for posters and graphics.

Typography Jargon Buster!


Ligatures are unique characters created from multiple letters of common letter combinations to improve readability in a font. or example, the letter “f” has a high frequency of occurring with “i” and “l”, as in words like “figure” and “flower.” To improve the readability in these specific cases, “fi” and “fl”, would be combined to create a unique character that would replace the two letters when typed together.
