Fontfabric’s Intro Script family is both trendy and friendly. The soft hand-crafted script becomes more and more delightful in thicker weights. The family includes 3 sets of “Goodies” which offer banners, patterns, and upbeat catchwords that will brighten anyone’s day.

Nicholas Sample Text

Nicholas by Shinntype is a hefty retro-inspired serif that is anything but clunky. As we witness a rise in the popularity of wedge serifs, Nicholas is a perfect fit. Designed to be tightly kerned without touching, these letterforms are tailor made for visual harmony and readability.

Ergonomique Sample Text

Paulo Goode’s Ergonomique is a set of 18 spurless humanist sans serifs. Ergonomique’s sleek modern look is enhanced by nuanced details like slightly angled terminals and a semi-wide appearance. This versatile family is ideal for display purposes, but still reads smoothly in larger portions of text.

The Boardwalk Avenue collection from Fenotype offers a set of display fonts that look equally as dapper independently as they do collectively. Boardwalk Avenue offers three distinct styles (a casual monolinear script, a high contrast serif, and a sturdy serif) in two weights for a total of six handsome fonts.

How Gotham took over the world
 

How Gotham took over the world

Gotham has had a sharp rise to ubiquity since its public debut in 2002. Though we’re now seeing serifs come back into fashion, see how this minimalist font became so prominent in culture.

Font detectives

When fraud is made evident by the use of anachronistic typefaces, it’s all in a day’s work for Thomas Phinney, font detective.
