Typold Sample Text

Typold originated out of the desire to improve geometric forms and push beyond previous achievements through collaborative working methods and knowledge sharing. The result is a finely balanced modern sans serif constructed from mathematical inputs, typographers needs, and the natural hand and eye of an artisan.

Carrig Pro Sample Text

Carrig Pro is a refined and elegant serif. Classed as an Antiqua, Carrig Pro is borne from a hybrid of influences that range from early Roman inscriptions to type of the Pre-Modern era, giving Carrig Pro a distinctive character all of its own. Carrig Pro will appear instantly familiar and friendly and could well be the perfect typeface for those designers seeking to convey a message with a distinctive and prestigious air.

Typographica’s Favorites from 2016

While the list might be a little bit late, what Typographica lacks in punctuality it makes up for in quality. Stephen Coles’ curated list of Favorite Typefaces of 2016 highlights the good from last year, not necessarily the hot. Fontspring has more than a handful of fonts on the list, but our favorites include ones we don’t carry: Neue Kabel, Lubaline, and everything from David Jonathan Ross.

The Future of Typography?
 

The Future of Typography?

In this interview from Khoi Vinh, Dan Rhatigan from Adobe Type shares the vision behind variable fonts and theorizes about their future use. We’ve shared a few articles on variable fonts already, but we appreciate Dan’s measured reaction to this new tech and his patience in seeing it roll out to software applications. We’re excited to see how variable fonts continue to carve out their niche.
