These font articles are rare but I try to gather in them the best new fonts that are launched since the last article or haven’t been included in the previous ones.
Okay Type: Harriet
A rational serif family, a contemporary reflection of the serifs popular in mid—20th—century American and English design.
Hoefler & Frere-Jones: Tungsten
The New Tungstens, a set of four different widths, each in eight weights. A compact and sporty sans serif that’s disarming instead of pushy — not just loud, but persuasive.
Jörg Schmitt: Ingrid Mono
The birth of the monospaced types dates back to the past. There was a need for the creation of typesets for typewriters. The difficulty was to align the different glyphs in the same width.
Lost Type Coop: Dude
A reverse contrast cowboy font thats got true grit. It’s not about weight, its about style. Twelve different serif styles inspired by country musics legends.
Sudtipos: Poem Script
A mixed collection of interpretations conjuring a late nineteenth century American pen script style.
The Northern Block: Baufra
A humanist sans—serif typeface, based on the sans—serif typefaces of the early 20th century.
Based on the lettering on the original Norwegian phone booths, drawn by architect Georg Fredrik Fasting in the 30’s. A general purpose geometric sans serif in three weights.
Contrasts convex with concave curves, sculpting letterforms instead of adhering to the traces of a physical tool.
Soft, ample letterforms are casually constructed and the end result produces a typeface that changes color as it varies in size — allowing the type family to work well in both text and display settings as long as attention is given to size.
It’s no-nonsense construction bears many influences from Gill Sans and Frutiger while stubbornly blending my own humanist touch.
Borutta: Wood Type Collection
Wood Type Collection from Borutta is a set of wonderful, warm and weathered hand made typefaces. The inspiration for this collection comes from a wooden letter blocks and other old technologies used for printing.
Font Bureau: Serge
A frisky, acrobatic face that dashes off decorative blurbs, signs, and headlines with a lively, angular zest.
Rene Bieder: RBNo2.1
A condensed sans serif typeface with a technical and geometric appearance.
Art. Lebedev Studio: ALS SyysScript
Handwriting of a strong Carelian personality revived.
