An industrial sans by Scribble Tone, a homage to Spanish calligraphy by ReType, an art deco inspired sans by Typetantic, a crisp icon font from Symbolset, a space saving serif by Outras Fontes, a sans inspired by the golden era of surf by Kyle Wayne Benson, a retro-chic display face by Type-Ø-Tones, and a Bauhaus influenced sans by The Northern Block.

Scribble Tone: Analog

This new take on industrial sans serifs embodies the spirit of the solid state electronics revolution. Its energetic, generously wide proportions are balanced by confident, efficient strokes with minimal contrast.

ReType: Medusa

Ramiro Espinoza’s homage to one of the most renowned masters of Spanish calligraphy, Ramón Stirling, who was active in Barcelona during the 19th century.

Typetanic: Transat

A geometric sans serif typeface, with caps inspired by Art Deco signage found inside the “Gare Maritime” ocean liner terminals in both Le Havre and Cherbourg, France, in the early 1930s.

Symbolset: Gizmo

Balances professional, technical, and user interface needs with fun icons for food, weather, and coffee among other areas. Its lines begin and end in unexpected, yet well considered ways resulting in a fresh, unique take on the established outline icon style archetype.

Outras Fontes: Directa Serif

A text type family designed to save space with the maximum redability. Because of its general forms and proportions (a little bit condensed, big x-height, low contrast) it can be used in smaller sizes than usual for body text.

Kyle Wayne Benson: Tide’s In!

Inspired by the hand painted art born during the golden days of surf. Tide’s In!’s fresh, carefree, look makes you almost forget that staring at a monitor and not on the beach.

Type-Ø-Tones: Magasin

A high contrast display typeface inspired by the pointed pen calligraphy, yet with a retro-chic twist. It combines a sense of script with geometric and slightly condensed structure resulting in idiosyncratic curves softly connecting the vertical elegance of its forms.

The Northern Block: Corbert

A geometric sans serif typeface influenced by Bauhaus and the early modernist era. Precise circles are optically adjusted to create a clear, natural typeface with great legibility.
