Supria Sans by HVD Fonts

Hannes von Döhren’s contribution to the grotesque sans genre is a functional, beautiful family called Supria Sans and Supria Sans Condensed. The family has enough weights and styles to be useful for many projects. Interestingly, each font has both a matching oblique and italic, further extending the usefulness of the face.

The Creative

Sogo Japan

The incredibly talented type designer Neil Summerour launched the Sogo Japan site shortly after the earthquake disaster. The website helps people (and designers in particular) direct their donations to Japanese organizations that can deliver the most effective help. Donors who contribute $30 or more are rewarded with a custom version of his fantastic Angel Script font.

Sogo Japan was designed top to bottom with his own Akagi font family, a workhorse humanist sans with 10 weights and matching italics.
