Friday Five Fonts: Acta Symbols by DSType and Sweet Sans by Sweet

New Fonts, June 2011

We love new fonts. Earlier this month we showed off new stuff from DSType, Typolar, and Red Rooster. In case you missed it, or for some oddball reason aren’t subscribed to our newsletter, you can subscribe and check out old announcements in our Newsletter Archive. Acta, from DSType, was just one of many new releases thus far in June.

Download Acta PDFs: Large (4.2 MB) and Small (446 KB).

Because we’re greedy for new fonts, and because there’s still a whole two days left in June, we’ve just gone live with another update. Check out what’s new on the New Fonts page for June. Among them comes the new superfamily from Font Bureau and Cyrus Highsmith: Salvo.

We’ll be looking at these new releases more closely in our next newsletter.

New: Coranto 2 Headline from TypeTogether

Last month we released Coranto 2 from TypeTogether. Designer Gerard Unger based the new family on his earlier DTL Paradox, tailoring this new variation to the newsprint medium: extremely legible, professional and approachable, with a taller x-height and more robust forms than its parent. It also maintains a detailed elegance that modern printers can more easily translate to the page than in past eras, adding to the typeface’s versatility in media beyond print.

Quickly on the heels of the first release comes Coranto 2 Headline. TypeTogether added three styles to the family, now available at FontShop: Headline Regular, Headline Semi Bold, and Headline Bold. These new styles have an even taller x-height, and are condensed to save space. They can be purchased individually, and are also included in a new family package which contains all seven styles.
