Nefelibata Sample Text

The display font world is seeing somewhat of a renaissance, with top font designers introducing new variations and ideas into the mix. Nefelibata has a unique look to it, which fits the dreamy posters perfectly. It's a simple family, but comes with rough variations for almost every weight, just enough to add interest.

Blooming Elegant Sample Text

Elegant is a perfect description for this new font by Nicky Laatz. It follows the shape of much of the new modern calligraphy, without the roughness or the hard-to-read characters that accompany many of the style's fonts. Add in a simple all-caps sans and a very cute hand drawn variant, and you have everything you need to design invitations, greeting cards, posters, signs, and more!

It's fitting that Cheddar Gothic by Adam Ladd has cheese in the name, as I feel this font works especially well for food-related advertising. It has vintage themes and nice blocky letters, making it perfect for display use. The added serif style allows for more variation as well, letting you subtly mix styles and keep your themes fresh.

Designing Stranger Things

This Wired article takes you through the design process of the title sequence of a great new show from Netflix, Stranger Things. The choice to use the retro ITC Benguiat perfectly sets the mood, and transports you immediately back to 1983.

Sarah Hyndman, author of a book about the psychology of type, Why Fonts Matter, has a new event scheduled to look at how label design and typeface choice influence our perception of how wine tastes. I might just stay home and run my own experiments later tonight.
