Sometimes, super fancy or bold fonts just don’t cut it for the designs we are working on. Through trial and error, we keep messing up the design, and then we wonder why it just does not seem to look right. Maybe, just maybe the fancy font that we at first wanted to use is the root of the problem. Then we glance at our font library, and see that we have no nice but simple fonts to use. This has happened to us many a time, and we have decided to sit down and compile a list of tall, skinny, condensed fonts for future usage.

Astrid is a thin and tall decorative font that is unusual as well as quirky. It is a combination of strict lines and smooth curves, which is what the designer describes as ‘eclectic’. As the font stands out, it is good for logos, brand names, album covers and magazine covers.
T H I N S T A N L E Y by Denise Chandler

This font is a less formal one, but filled with much more fun. This is an all caps font that comes with an uppercase alternate where each letter has swirly tops. Use the swirls for emphasis or to give character to a specific word. Fun for group t-shirts, logos, banners, and labeling household items.

M I N T Y M A R C H by Skyla Design
Another condensed font by Skyla Design, Minty March is a serif condensed font. Although it is somewhat cute, it can be used for formal print. A suggestion would be to mix it with an elegant thin script font, as it would combine well. More suggestions would be to use it for cards, invites, logo’s, and birthday invitations.
C O Y O T E by Josh O.
Coyote is an uneven, handwritten, playful font. It is the best font for adding a personal touch to mugs, plates, bottles, journals and so on. Although all in caps, the lowercase is in small caps, thus allowing the user to play around with the baseline of the entire word or paragraph. Create unique specialised designs with this fun font.
T A L L A B B E Y by Tom Chalky
Lastly we have this font with an interesting back story. Tall Abbey was inspired by the handwriting of the designer’s partner. With a few tweaks into the body of the letters, this font came about. This font gives off a cozy country cottage vibe, and is great for cards, packaging for homemade products, or brand logos.
