A space saving serif by TipoType, a geometric sans from FontFont, a handpainted face by PintassilgoPrints, a workhorse family from Typotheque, an elegant serif by Nootype, a legible slab from FontFont, a contemporary gothic by Talbot Type, and a chic serif from Typonine.

TipoType: Quiroga Serif

Designed by Fernando Díaz

Quiroga Serif is designed for continuous text — legible at medium and small sizes, with great space-saving. Optimized for 6, 8, 10 and 12 points.

FontFont: FF Mark

Designed by Hannes von Döhren & Christoph Koeberlin

New meets old meets technic, FF Mark is not an average geometric sans. Strong, simple, bold and created with utmost consideration and precision.

PintassilgoPrints: Brush Up

Designed by Ricardo Marcin & Erica Jung

Swiftly painted on paper and carefully translated into a font.

Typotheque: Lava

Designed by Peter Biľak

Lava was designed for magazine use, but far transcends its original application. It’s a no-nonsense workhorse typeface that can handle large quantities of text with ease.

Nootype: Felice

Designed by Nico Inosanto

Felice is an elegant serif with a humanistic touch.

FontFont: FF Kievit Slab

Designed by Michael Abbink & Paul van der Laan

FF Kievit Slab is not just the Sans with slab serifs attached. It has been carefully adjusted and fine tuned in width and contrast to help make it an extremely legible typeface.

Talbot Type: Kilburn

Designed by Adrian Talbot

Kilburn continues in the fine tradition of fonts such as Franklin Gothic, News Gothic and Trade Gothic offering a contemporary interpretation of the condensed sans-serif — functionality with personality.

Typonine: Nocturno

Designed by Nikola Djurek

Engineered for chic, highly elaborate typesetting. Nocturno is broad-shouldered and heavy-armed: the rolling, dark silhouettes of its characters create a soothing yet forceful impression that serves to anchor words, no matter where they appear.
