Sonder Sample Text

The warm and welcoming Sonder family consists of a classic brush script and a strong sans. Sonder Script has a generous x-height, standard ligatures, and contextual alternates to keep things bright and energetic. Sonder Sans is an all caps font with varied widths that is anything but boring. Textured or clean, this family will brighten your winter day.

Neato Serif lives up to its retro name with its playful ball terminals and quirky swashes. The high-contrast hand-drawn letterforms have a subtle texture for a bit of a weathered vintage look.

This sequel to W Foundry's super-clean sans is a slab that looks great in any format. With a narrowed structure, Kappa Vol. 2 remains extremely readable, and feels sturdy and stabilized in bold and thin weights.
