Trend Rough

Daniel Hernández and Paula Nazal Selaive for Latinotype

Sporting a convincing texture typical of the uneven ink seen in polymer plate letterpress work, Trend Rough offers a full chromatic set of stackable effects, including solid, inline, two shaded sets, and combined solid with hatched shadow. Times two—Sans and Slab, plus geometric shapes and catchwords. *Get your hands on the amazing introductory offer, which applies to whole family and ends on March 12, 2015.

Ciutadella Rounded

Eduardo Manso for Emtype

The friendly technical sans has gotten friendlier. Eduardo Manso has gone to great lengths in expanding the family to make Ciutadella Rounded, a face with truly round terminals in every weight—no small feat. Compact and display-focused, this one's definitely a prominent pick among the DIN Alternatives.

Auberge Script

Alejandro Paul for Sudtipos

You may ask yourself as you learn that this typeface is based on 17th century calligraphy manuals: 'Who actually wrote like this, and for what purpose?' Far from everyday penmanship, writing masters used such hands for court documents, and other applications commonly adapted to engraving plates. Awarded as a selection at Tipos Latinos 2014. *There are fantastic reductions to be had on all weights. Offer ends March 15, 2015.

Tepu

Sergio Ramirez Flores for Latinotype

Tepu is a family of highly recognizable general-use icons made in three variations: solid, outlined and reversed out of a solid background. The sets are immediately at home in maps and other wayfinding systems, screen interfaces, and whatever else editorial could possibly throw at them. You can get a great discount on any weight and package until March 12, 2015.

Carnas

Dieter Hofrichter for Hoftype

Dieter Hofrichter's blunted, spurless Carnas typeface maximizes its counter-forms by pushing its strokes outward, each character forming a straight-sided or superelliptical structure. The face treats the passing eye to a subtle diagonal jostling as tensioned upper-right and lower-left curves create radial symmetry.

Shop Carnas




Modernica

Javier Quintana Godoy for Latinotype

Modernica's wide caps sit at the edge of what's reliably considered reverse contrast—its thick horizontal and thin vertical strokes are near equal when measured. The eight-weight family is an extension of the compact Mazurquica family, and also includes an Office variant. *You can get a great discount on any package until March, 12 2015.
