There's no denying it: Art Deco fonts are totally cool and are the right choice for designers and design dabblers who want to bring a fresh and stylish look to their projects.
What Is Art Deco?
Art Deco, short for Arts Décoratifs, is a style of visual arts, architecture and design that gained popularity in the 1920s and 30s and fell out of fashion around the beginning of World War II. It is characterised by rich colour, bold geometry, symmetrical designs in exuberant shapes, and decadent detail work. It came to represent luxury, glamour, exuberance, and faith in social and technological progress.
Art Deco font styles, as you will see shortly, cover quite a broad range but all have a touch of that quality which makes Art Deco so popular even today.
