Versace ain’t the only ones with a fall collection, peoples! We’re happy to introduce seven new designer typefaces. Get a load of ‘em below, or dive right into the Text tool and find your favorite.
Lato is serious, but inviting. Lato is strong, but flexible. Lato is stable, but transparent. We chose this one because it represents everything a designer needs in a reliable, adaptable typeface. Designer Lukasz Dziedzic originally conceived of Lato as a corporate font, which means you’re locked and loaded for branded materials, official communications, or any other project that calls for a trustworthy, friendly tone.
2. Bodoni XT
For three days, a man in a dark hat has been following you through the streets of Rome. He’s watching, he’s waiting, he’s hiding under that goofy hat. When you’ve had enough, you turn on your heels in an alleyway made of stone and shadow and say “What’s your deal, Signor?!”
He hands you a card, where you see Bodoni XT for the first time. The plump, quirky letters held together by a happy series of boings and hops. Those sharp numbers that you swear you’ve seen before. It’s the kind of font you’d want to tour across the European countryside with, and it’s yours.
You know that feeling when you wake up on the first morning of a three-day weekend and your own personal barista (who is also Tom Hanks) hands you the best cup of coffee you’ve ever had? That’s CoffeeBreak. Designed by Carlos Fabián Camargo Guerrero, CoffeeBreak captures the spirit of everything warm and good in life. It’s also a super versatile script that is at once fun and elegant, perfectly suited for all kinds of projects.
4. Grand Hotel
Grand Hotel’s a bit more of a sophisticated fellow than the CoffeeBreak script, but not quite as formal as the ballroom beauty known as Lavanderia (more on that next). The name is no accident. Though the font predates Wes Anderson’s 2014 The Grand Budapest Hotel, the tonal similarities are like, eerie y’all. When you want something that combines the whimsy of a fine novelty bakery and the classic innocence of a 1930s café, Grand Hotel is your perfect choice.
By 11:15, nearly two hours after her own party had started, Lavanderia’s arrival remained something of a rumor, a myth, an occurrence that had fallen from a promise to a fragile expectation held only by the night’s most hopeful.
At four minutes until the hour, their patience was rewarded. Eyes locked. Time stopped. Lavanderia had arrived. So pure was her elegance that it seemed to radiate and polish everything around her. Lavanderia turns a glance into a gaze, a typeface into a tableau. She’s the font for everything fancy. Designed by James T. Edmondson; waiting for You.
6. Laughing Gull
Distinctly nautical with an undeniable sense of humor, Laughing Gull is a new typeface from designer Amy Dietrich. Laughing Gull’s like that friend whose stories always make you smile, you know the one. Fun follows Laughing Gull wherever it goes, and that means your future projects.
Don’t hold back. Have fun.
7. Nexa Rust
EMPEROR READABILITY AND CAPTAIN COOL HAD A BABY. THE BABY’S NAME? NEXA RUST. IT’S THE BIGGEST, BADDEST, ALL-CAPS-AND-LOVIN-IT FONT FOR BEING WARM AND ROUGH AND FOR GETTING POINTS ACROSS. IS IT READABLE? PSH, WHAT KINDA CRAZY ARE YOU TALKIN, FOOL?! WITH A STACKED SHADOW BUILT RIGHT INTO THE FREAKIN LETTERS, KICK AMBIGUITY TO THE CURB.
