Nothing sets your brand tone more than a great font. Finding the perfect font in a sea of choices can be overwhelming. So today, I’m rounding up a few of my favourite serif fonts that are sharp and elegant.
Do you recognize this pick? It’s the serif font used in my personal branding for Vanessa Bucceri Creative. You can see how it looks throughout my site. The low contrast of the letters feels chic, simplistic and stylish. Love it as much as I do?

Sometimes Times is inspired by old-style serifs and mid 90’s culture – perhaps that’s why I love it so much! I can’t get enough of the fluidity combined with sharp serifs. This font is sexy while still being classic and extremely legible for a professional brand.

Swear Display was a new font find for me and my most current obsession. Every once in a while, I come across a stunning font that I want to use in a project immediately. This one feels a little playful and is perfect for an elevated, premium brand that doesn’t take itself too seriously.
Swear Display is available through Adobe fonts here.
Next up, Migra by Pangram Pangram Foundry. Can you see the influence of migratory birds on this type design? This font is sharp and spiky, perfect for a luxury brand that is to the point and gets things done.

Sometimes premium fonts just aren’t in the budget. If that’s the case, there are some great free alternatives out there. Here are two of my picks for a fierce and elegant brand wanting a high-end look.
This font really hooks you in with its pointy serifs. The stroke thickness has some nice contrast so overall this font feels creative and bold. The extended width of the letters gives this font a strong presence. If you’re a mature brand looking to be memorable, this might be a good fit for you!
Messapia is an open source font, free to use from Collletttivo.
Junge is an elegant choice for display or text copy as it reads well in all weights. Refined and subtle, this font makes a great pick for a brand looking to make a great impression with its typography.
