Our favorite font family just got better. Questa now has a slab family and the full Questa family now covers any style you could imagine. A great corporate typeface that also works for more casual and modern usage, Questa Slab would make a great addition on its own as well, whether for text or headlines.

How many styles can you get out of a single font? Blonde Script by Indian Type Foundry says “a whole lot.” A script where the stylistic alternates are actually different, you really get a real good bang for your buck with this font. Our favorites are the small caps characters, which add some hand drawn sans flair.

Bunyan Pro Sample Text

Bunyan Pro is the synthesis of Bunyan, the last face Eric Gill designed for hand setting in 1934 and Pilgrim, the machine face based on it, issued by British Linotype in the early 1950s — the most popular Gill text face in Britain from its release until well into the 1980s. A classically styled Serif, it nonetheless has more of a timeless appearance and would work equally well in modern text.

La Parisienne Sample Text

Modern calligraphy is great, but it has one main flaw: It’s hard to read. La Parisienne by My Creative Land is a 6 font family with a mix of script and sans, and fills the same niche as modern calligraphy but with a much more legible appearance. If you’re focusing on your message and important info rather than just looks, you should give this one a try.
