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.
