Slick and speedy, Stripes Headline is the funky new font from Thinkdust foundry. Part retro 60s look, part optical illusion and part speed lines, Stripes is full of energy and ready to party. As the name suggests, Stripes is a perfect headline font, setting you up for design work that looks mobile and full of life.
Caslon Gotisch is a fan of old castles, haunted manors and church gargoyles, preferring the horror classics such as Frankenstein and Dracula to modern takes on the genre. Based on a blackletter font by William Caslon, first published in 1763, this font is more nostalgic of its time than it is a vintage take on the past. Updated for modern machines, with plenty of useful ligatures, Caslon Gotisch is great for a genuine gothic look.
BD Qualle is a cheery little font that just wants to be your friend, bouncing along and sticking with you through thick and thin. Definitely not a fairweather friend, Qualle is exactly the sort of font that loves to get out the raincoat, boots and umbrella and go jumping in puddles to help brighten up the rainy days.
Gabor Pro is suave and sophisticated, not content just with being rich and fashionable, but also interested in intellectualism. As much a student as a purchaser of the fine arts, Gabor understands that there is more to life than owning pretty things, and that making them is an end in itself. Finely dressed and with a flourish, Gabor Pro is the font for design work that needs a lot of class.
Basik is like many fonts’ baby sibling, cute, simple and strangely round. A font with all the noise and messiness cut out of it, Basik focuses on clean lines and legibility, reducing the work that goes into every stroke of every character as much as possible, while still aiming to be unique in its design.
Twist is the font with the zany plans that somehow always seem to work out, one way or another. Taking turns you never expect and that never seem logical, when you zoom out and look at the bigger picture you see that it all fits together quite neatly, until you can’t be sure if it was planned ahead of time or just pure luck. There’s never a dull moment with a font like Twist.
Box is a bit of a square, too straight edged to really be cool, always toeing the line. Just because it doesn’t hang out with the in crowd though, doesn’t mean that Box doesn’t have a lot of personality. Box may not have a lot of layers, but that just means that you can trust it to wear its heart on its sleeve – on the inside it’s just as reliable as it is on the outside. Funky and retro, living the life it loves, Box is a great font for big impressions and a quirky look.
Lith is the font that hides at the bottom of the garden and only comes out at night. Preferring to live amongst weeds and thorny, overgrown bushes, Lith will whisper to you when you come near, urging you close enough to grab you and pull you in. Otherworldly and haunting, this typeface also captures an element of the fantastical, evoking curiosity and terror at the same time. Use with caution.
As much ‘delightful’ as ‘delicious’, Delicious Pro is elegant and classy in a young, modern, trendy way, flaunting everything it’s got and living for today. A party hard sort of font with a carefree attitude, Delicious nonetheless has a bit of a cruel streak, the occasional soft appearance turning to a knife point finish. This is just the sort of vigour that keeps Delicious Pro interesting though, and gives it the liveliness that sets it apart from the crowd.
Moderna Condensed is a fan of the simple way of life: do what you do, and be happy. There’s no stress and no hard work with Moderna, just a sense of ease and contentment. Designed primarily for short blocks of text and headlines, Moderna Condensed has the option of fitting in anywhere you need it to be.
Festival Script Pro is wealthy and glamorous, and likes to show it off. Glistening in the finest, and refined, swashes, with characters that are perfectly cut to fit its curves, Festival is the prima donna of the ball, demanding the attention it rightly deserves. Not one to throw a tantrum, Festival doesn’t need to scream and shout to get attention, it simply has to walk in the room, elegant and proud, for heads to turn.
Blink and you miss it: Thirsty Soft is here and gone again in just 2 weeks, so you’ve only got a limited time to get it. To help you out, HypeForType has reduced it to just £5, so if you were unsure before, you can’t be any more. Thirsty Soft is the smoother, rounder cousin to Thirsty Script, another great by Yellow Design Studio, offering a creamy script which flows easily in its ligatures. Easy going and relaxed, Thirsty Soft just floats along on whatever tide pulls it, so make the most of it while it’s here, because it’ll be gone before you know it. Continue »
