7 Free Bauhaus-Inspired Fonts and Design Assets

Bring the Bauhaus aesthetic to life with these complimentary Bauhaus design assets, color palettes, and fonts.

Bauhaus was a revolutionary movement that transformed how the modern world thought about form and function in graphic design, but also in everyday objects. At Shutterstock, we’re big fans of Bauhaus, and we’ve covered easy ways to work the iconic geometric Bauhaus look into your Illustrator designs, as well as the history behind the theory. It’s no stretch to say it’s one of our favorite design movements.

With this article, we wanted to round up some of our favorite FREE Bauhaus-inspired fonts and design assets so you can bring your mod design vision to life.


1. Free Geometric Backgrounds

Eight bauhaus design examples

One of the pillars of Bauhaus design is sticking to geometric shapes as you think about your designs. This pack contains eight free seamless geometric backgrounds that you can use in a variety of applications such as Shutterstock Create, Photoshop, or Illustrator.


2. Free Rainbow Color Palettes

Red, yellow, light blue, and dark blue geometric shapes

Most Bauhaus design employs a primary color scheme. We’ve rounded up these free color palettes inspired by the ROYGBIV colors of the rainbow.

This can help you push the limits of color in your Bauhaus-inspired designs and bring them to the 2020s.
