7 Engaging Presentation Fonts to Explore – From Growler to Tangerine

By John Rode on September 5, 2012

An interesting presentation font can boost the level of engagement of your presentation. The effect is subtle, but your audience will appreciate a font that matches the mood and personality of your presentation.

Trouble is, there are so many fonts to choose from. So, we picked out seven favorites to share with you, all of which are available for free in SlideRocket.

If you choose the Irish Growler font you’re already thinking imaginatively about your presentation. We love the way it has a handwritten look to it, yet it’s still easy to read. As a presentation font it’s good for labels, titles and generally for informal presentations.

The tall “ascender” on some letters is what gives Tangerine its elegance. Tangerine font is a good choice for short text and titles, and we recommend using it at larger font sizes. Tangerine is a calligraphy font that traces its roots back to italic fonts from the 16-17th century.

While I may not trade a Pigiarniq for a Droid Sans or an Amasis for a typical presentation, it’s readability makes it a smart choice when using small fonts. Pigiarniq font was created for the Inuktitut language (an Eskimo–Aleut language) which didn’t even adopt a written language until the 1860s. Who knew?!

This is a GQ kind of font. No, really, its design was originally commissioned by GQ magazine. The font is at once fresh yet “established”, making it a good option for companies looking to differentiate themselves without scaring away prospective customers.

It’s urban, it’s grungy and it’s bold. The Capture It font is one of our favorites for when presentations need to demand attention with a bit of an edge. Straight outta Hungary by designer Koczman Bálint, this spray can font is one of the most readable of the gritty fonts that are out there.

Not nearly as futuristic as its name implies, the Droid Sans font is a great choice as a workhouse sans serif presentation font. Conservative yet open and friendly, this is a good go-to font for almost any presentation.

I tend to shy away from serif fonts, but Amasis is one I can get behind thanks to its subtle use of the serifs (those little decorations on each letter). Designers will tell you this font has an industrial look but with a delicate elegance. I guess I’ll buy that…

    History lesson anyone? Amasis is a humanist slab serif typeface designed by British designer Ron Carpenter in 1990. The design takes a humanist approach rather than the geometric approach seen commonly in slab serifs. Amasis is a highly legible font on screen and for that reason was chosen as the default font for the Nook eReader.

    I’m planning on doing an English Novels with Innovative Writing undergrad degree training course, beginning in 2010. Initially, I would like to study British, but lately I’ve made the decision I would much better suited to English Literature with Creative Composing. Are there any universities that are especially good for British and creative writing? A lot of the universities I had formed previously been looking at no longer offer the program, and The Moments University Information only offers an English little league table. All of the answers valued! (-:.

    What are the core or basic lessons taught Writing classes? Main things We learned on the subject of was Freytags Pyramid. I was told it’s not an across the board learning device. What exactly is? Now i’m really inquisitive. In poems I was taught, ‘if it means too many things to many folks it does not show for it’s mark’. I have since learned that good writing has a tendency to bring out different reactions in different people and different interpretations. How do learning about innovative writing (creativity is so individualized) be standardised?.
