Our Predictions for Top Fonts for Packaging in 2021


According to the New York Times, some of the most popular phrases of 2020 were: Black Lives Matter, Unprecedented, Virtual Happy Hour, and Zoom. To say that 2020 is a year that will go down in infamy would be an understatement. The pandemic, heightened social awareness, and overall upheavals in the ways in which we conduct regular life have been forever altered. These global events impact virtually every aspect of life. In our case, we’ve looked at how it impacts design in general. 

Retail packaging design trends tend to follow suit with other emerging trends in fashion and design. Typography and fonts are no exception to this. 

We are breaking down some of our predictions for the top fonts for packaging heading into 2021:
