I Love Typography

This Week in Fonts

A versatile sans from TipoType, a dynamic script by Sudtipos, an extreme display face from Hoefler & Co, a quirky hand-drawn family by Thinkdust, a geometric sans from Mint Type, a pair of playful stencils by Font Bureau, a multi-sources-inspired titling family from Kyle Wayne Benson, and a robust stencil by House Industries.

TipoType: Libertad

Designed by Fernando Díaz

Libertad is a sans-serif that mixes humanist and grotesk models.

Sudtipos: Abelina

Designed by Yani Arabena & Guille Vizzari

Abelina can be used in display sizes for titles where part of the central premise is to emulate certain features of gestural handwriting.

Hoefler & Co: Nitro & Turbo

Most type families begin with a roman font of moderate weight, and build outwards toward their peripheral bolds and italics. Nitro starts from the extreme — an aggressively sloped italic of massive weight — and adds an equal and opposite form, a backslanted style called Turbo.

Thinkdust: Nanami Handmade

Designed by Alex Haigh

Nanami Handmade comes in two styles — a solid and a hand-drawn, each of which has eight weights — and carries a quirky, mischievous charm.

Mint Type: Proba Pro

Designed by Andriy Konstantynov

Proba Pro is a geometric sans with lowered x-height, prominent ascenders & descenders, and subtle humanist touch.

Font Bureau: Tick & Tock

Designed by Cyrus Highsmith

Tick & Tock play the same game in two different ways; they’re distinct typefaces that see themselves in each other.

Kyle Wayne Benson: Good News Sans

Designed by Kyle Wayne Benson

The inspiration for Good News Sans is rooted in early twentieth century titling, gothic woodtype, geometrics like Futura Display, poster fonts of that era, and strong lowercase sets like Din.

House Industries: Yorklyn Stencil

Designed by Ken Barber

Yorklyn Stencil’s robust curves and deceptively delicate breaks will withstand a wide variety of harsh conditions with unprecedented aplomb.
