A contemporary family from Commercial Type, a connected script by Lián Types, an ambitious sans from Hoftype, a roughed up family by Fontfabric, a hard-working serif from House Industries, a sophisticated sans by Typetanic, a historical stencil face from Storm, and an expressive family by Andinistas.



Commercial Type: Darby


Designed by Dan Milne & Paul Barnes



A contemporary family of two related sans serifs: one is the functional Darby Sans; the other a refined display version for large sizes, where the contrast is dramatically higher.


Lián Types: Selfie


Designed by Maximiliano Sproviero



Selfie is a connected sans serif based on vintage signage scripts seen in Galerías of Buenos Aires.


Hoftype: Foro Sans


Designed by Dieter Hofrichter



Foro Sans is the matching friend of the popular Foro family. It consists of 16 styles and is well suited for ambitious typography.


Fontfabric: Nexa Rust


Designed by Ani Petrova, Svetoslav Simov, Vasil Stanev & Radomir Tinkov



Nexa Rust is a rough version of the already popular Nexa and Nexa Slab families with additional Nexa Script and Nexa Handmade fonts.


House Industries: Velo


Designed by Christian Schwartz, Mitja Miklavčič & Ben Kiel



Superelliptical shapes and sturdy serifs will keep pace with contemporary culture with an aesthetic agility that will never go out of style.


Typetanic: Gibbs


Designed by Gregory Shutters



Gibbs is a tough, sophisticated sans, named for prolific maritime architect William Francis Gibbs and inspired by his greatest design, the record-breaking mid-century luxury liner SS United States.


Storm: St. Croce


Designed by František Štorm



St. Croce is based on worn-out lettering on tombstones in the St. Croce Basilica in Florence.


Andinistas: Bemol


Designed by Carlos Fabián Camargo Guerrero



Bemol features craftsman style, worn edges and a highly spontaneous look.
