Alegreya is an open-source serif typeface designed by Juan Pablo del Peral. It was chosen by ATypI as one of 53 “Fonts of the Decade” at the Letter.2 competition—an impressive accomplishment for a font that is available for free. I rarely see Alegreya used on the web, which is surprising because in my opinion it is one of the absolute best fonts available on Google Fonts.
Based on font usage data on Typewolf, as well as site submissions designers have been sending me lately, these are the 10 fonts that I predict will be hot in 2019. When you subscribe to my weekly type roundup newsletter, I’ll send you a free PDF with a list of my predictions.
