Tired of Times New Roman?

June 22, 2017 , In: Inspiration

You’re not alone. As fonts go, Times New Roman has been around since the 1930s. It’s been distributed with every copy of Microsoft Windows since Version 3.1, it’s a default for formal documentation and traditional typefaces, and if you’re reading a book, it’s probably printed in Times New Roman.

It’s hardly a surprise, given the font’s characteristic serif style and legibility, but it’s become so ubiquitous that its frankly rather unappealing when it comes to adding some panache to your projects.

In this article, we’re going to look at five fonts that provide refreshing alternatives for those tired of Times New Roman.

Adriane Text

Adriane Text Font

Don’t let the name fool you – Typefolio’s Adriane Text is far from a French baby. Instead, it’s a crisp strong Serif font comprising of exceptional true italics, all without being too flamboyant. Adriane Text manages to present itself as a formal, decorative font without being excessive in its flourishes.

Grab it here.



Carrig FontFor something more stand-out without stepping too far away from the traditional type of Times New Roman, Paulo Goode’s Carrig is an eye-catching alternative that would look fantastic in any books, and up front and center within any headline that demands a distinctive Serif.

Maga FontIf your problem with Times New Roman was a lack of a certain vintage flair, Maga’s the answer to your prayers. An interesting font that doesn’t look out of place on a formal document and yet would make for an excellent header or logo typeface, what Maga boasts is versatility.

Check it out for yourself.



LibertadA departure from the Serif fonts above, we bring up Libertad because it’s a balanced and dynamic font that we think looks as clean on the page as Times New Roman does. This is a lovingly created font that strikes a great balance regardless of its weight. A recommended purchase for those wanting a font that’s truly a league above all others.



AccoladeThe perfect blend of everything we’ve discussed above, as serif fonts go that can succeed Times New Roman, Accolade might well be the champion. It’s has a lot of the same characteristics of its forefather, such as its respectable neutral presence, but there’s something softer and more natural about the font that keeps it original.

The Times, They Are A-Changing

We’d be surprised if none of these fonts captivate you as an alternative to Times New Roman, but if we’ve not quite hit the mark here, we likely can in other areas.
