New Fonts, August 2011

August came heavy with new fonts this year. With the introduction of Canada Type’s catalog to our offerings, new script faces from Sudtipos and Three Islands Press and more you’ll have to read about in our coming newsletter, we’ve seen a lot of good work come in.

And even though these Web FontFonts technically arrived in July, it’s about time they were introduced as all new, especially since they now come with a set of comp fonts: FF Sero Web, FF Tundra Web, FF Nuvo Mono Web, and FF Signa Stencil Web, with and without serifs.

FF Sero Web by Jörg Hemker

FF Sero combines the striking forms of an American Grotesque with the legibility of a Humanist Sans Serif typeface. It has open contours, a distinct x-height and a homogeneous grey scale value. During the seven years of development the classic letter forms have matured and turned into a balanced, sovereign typeface. Eight harmonized weights and an extensive character set allow for a flexible and versatile typography. Cyrillic and Greek characters provide an extended language support.

FF Signa Stencil Web & FF Signa Serif Stencil Web by Ole Søndergaard

FF Signa is a typically Danish typeface, rooted in architectural lettering rather than book typography. Concise letterforms and a minimum of detail produce clear and harmonious word images. Designed for the Danish Design Center, it is used there for printed material and exhibitions as well as the internal signage system. There are Condensed, Extended and Correspondence versions, and in 2005 FF Signa Serif joined the family. In 2011, Stencil variants were added.

Also, we’re quite pleased with the response FF Mister K is getting, and pleased more to announce a new sibling to the family, FF Mister K Informal.
