In an effort to get noticed, a lot of folks turn to the most obvi­ous item in their font menu: Impact™. In con­cept, it plays the role well. It is heavy and con­densed, yet still leg­i­ble, with short descen­ders that enable the user to stack head­lines big and tight. The prob­lem: overuse. No matter how loud it looks, a type­face can only shout so many times before it loses its voice.

For­tu­nately, when a pow­er­ful vehi­cle is needed to carry an impor­tant mes­sage, there are plenty of capa­ble, but less obvi­ous type­faces for the job. Have a look at our Extra Bold newslet­ter and see more heavy duty head­line options in the list below.
