They say that it takes two to tango, but Superb is a font which sashays stylishly across the page under its very own power. It doesn’t need back-up, call off the cavalry; this font stands up to any challenge alone, and looks fabulous at the same time, kind of like Charlie’s Angels, or James Bond. And if Superb is 007, then OpenType is its martini (shaken, not stirred). With the charm and sophistication of a seventies Roger Moore, Superb shows off a dazzling array of OpenType options without breaking a sweat.

Straight-faced and stony, Modernica tells it as it is. Not because it’s cruel, or because it’s nice, but just because that’s the way things are, and Modernica is a font that likes things to be simple. Many people misunderstand Modernica, thinking it lacks personality, but those who know it well see a font with a refined taste and love of the finer things in life. Modernica’s hard exterior hides a soft centre, a stern business-font who likes to get home and play with the kids.
Modernica is great for print and text formats that aim for seriousness without boredom. Each typeface includes Open Type features for every occasion, including small caps, modern or old style figures, ligatures and much more to give an otherwise dry piece a sense of enjoyment.

Optilus is a font with a few tricks up its sleeve and a rabbit in its top hat. Always looking to dazzle and amaze, Optilus’ main trick is never appearing the same way twice, with plenty of family members to step in at a moment’s notice and change the look just so slightly. Playing with a sense of identity and optical illusion, Optilus and all its family members are always ready to try something creative; perfect for colourful and expressive design projects.
Zennat is as pragmatic as it is steady-handed, always looking for the most efficient solution, if not the easiest. Zennat can endure a lot, so it doesn’t mind being a little cramped if it means fitting everything in, all it asks is that you let it take its time and excuse a little bit of untidiness.
When it does get a bit of breathing room, Zennat knows how to make an impact, letting loose with all its might and making an impression that won’t be forgotten. Although it can dress up nicely, Zennat is equally at home in its rough and untidy self, and can even carry on going when worn down to the core. Ideal for making an impact, either big and bold or compressed and efficient, Zennat is great for logos, headlines and graphics.
A fan of the Classics, Servus Slab likes to imagine itself back in the days of Rome, reliving their ancient days of glory, reading the works of great early thinkers. Although it has its mind on the past, Servus Slab doesn’t have its head in the clouds. Down to earth and pragmatic, Servus Slab is a font that likes to see things done properly, going the extra mile to make sure that no detail is missed. Well educated in etiquette and form, Servus knows a little bit about everything, and can fit itself into any occasion with a decent understanding of how to proceed. Use Servus in text or print formats for a classic and traditional edge.
Genica is a font with a smile on its face. It will take your hand and run laughing into the sunny afternoon, and before you know it you’ll be laughing too, frolicking in the long grass and letting your troubles wash away.

This is a display typeface built to delight, and it lives up to that mandate with fanfare. Brighten up your day with Genica Pro by Ndiscovered, available now at HypeForType.
A wonderfully eclectic font, Mangerica doesn’t ascribe labels or fit in any predefined pigeon holes.

Mangerica by Ndiscovered is now available at HypeForType.
