FONTFACE - The Fontspring Font Review

The Latest

Uninsta by The Northern Block


Uninsta is the latest sans from the prolific Northern Block foundry. Sometimes you need a sans with character and this one has it in spades. Full of OpenType features and kerning pairs with nine weights make this a workhorse family. And 18 fonts for $28? You know what to do...

Directors Cut Pro by Type Innovations

Directors Cut Pro

Directors Cut Pro fits a unique profile not seen in many serif fonts. It has a sweetness, a charm that warms up the text without overdoing it. Type Innovations built a winner but we'd love to see it in a broader range of weights (hint hint!).

Directors Cut Pro 6 fonts $69 $14 Single $169 $34 Family Preview Online

Chameleon by Fontforecast


Offering families of coordinating fonts is a growing trend. Building on that theme, Chameleon has three families on completely different wavelengths that work and play together really well. And you can't beat the introductory pricing on this one.

Chameleon 16 fonts $10-$30 Single $74 $37 Family Preview Online

Industry by Hold Fast Foundry


This crisp mechanical sans takes us back in time to a harder, grittier era. A solid family for hip and trendy logo work, Industry should fit nicely in your font toolbox.
