Tablet Gothic

Veronika Burian and José Scaglione for TypeTogether

Tablet Gothic’s fully loaded. In seven complete weights that stretch across each of its six (!) widths from Compressed to Wide, you’d be hard pressed to find a space where the ebullient sans isn’t a natural fit. Its intermediate weights are comfortable for long reading, with lighter and heavier cuts better suited to larger headline or other display settings.

Burlingame

Carl Crossgrove for Monotype

Burlingame® typeface takes the best of the square tech sans genre, and updates its forms for better handling on screen as well as at small sizes. The result is a bright, linear family prepared to represent forward-thinking ideas. Nine weights in two widths: normal and condensed.

FF Hertz

Jens Kutílek for FontFont

Bookish, full of subtle and unexpected delights, Jens Kutílek’s typeface FF Hertz™ was made for long text. Its finely graduated weights allow the designer to dial in just the right page density. This can be done, by the way, without danger of reflowing the text as it’s a uniwidth design.

InterFace

Bruno Maag for Dalton Maag

InterFace was developed by Bruno Maag to serve Britain’s Southeastern Rail lines, setting signage, marketing copy, and even the logo. The compact and flexible grotesque comes in six full weights. Its character set includes support for Greek and Cyrillic-based languages.

Calluna Sans

Jos Buivenga for exljbris

This graceful humanist sans was developed as a companion to Jos Buivenga’s popular Calluna, drawn in five compatible weights, each with italics. And thanks to exljbris who offers free weights of all of its typefaces, you can experience a full version of Calluna Sans Regular right away.
