We shine the spotlight on a lot of different kinds of font from time to time here at HypeforType, but sometimes it’s worth asking what you’re keeping under a spotlight.
There are a lot of different ways to browse our selection, but we keep tabs on which fonts are most popular. These are the fonts you guys are most likely to buy – and why? Well, we’ll let our readers be the judge. Take a look…
An exclusive font to our site from the expert design skills of Face37 – one of the best font fountries working today – this Didot-inspired font is a great contemporary serif and stencil building on classical lines, evoking classic magazines and headline articles.
A font eight years in the making, Quainton is a beautiful reinvention of a classic font style, with slim, clean lines and striking artistry that speaks to an art deco sensibility. If you haven’t investigated Quainton yet – why not? Now is the time.
A beautiful layered all-caps font, Idler hearkens back to the classic cinema signs of yesteryear, creating a hopeful ambiance which looks to the future even as it stays rooted in a simpler time. Simply classic.
Another multilevel type system, Turnright Bevel is a great font on its own which becomes something truly special when paired with Turnpike Display. This one deserves to be singled out as a designers’ dream; for that reason, it’s supplied exclusively as a vector font.
Few typefaces allow for the kind of flexibility in line weight that Publica Play can offer. At lighter weights it’s a beautiful, clean sans with just a little bit of character incorporated; at heavier weights the character comes to the fore. The result is an incredibly flexible font for almost any purpose.
With ten uprights and ten italics, there’s a lot of flexibility to Geometrica, too – we’re spotting some patterns in what our customers want right now! The inspiration is simple; upper case/lower case and small caps characters keep the same proportion. The result speaks for itself.
A strikingly clean sans, F37 Ginger is the second of Rick Banks’ creations to make it to the top 10. The font gives modernist Swiss font work a contemporary geometric twist designed to bring it up to date in a second – and it certainly pops off page or screen as a result!
What’s next? How about a flexible font family in the calligraphic school, with many variations for slightly different takes on elegant handwriting drawing on all kinds of inspirations from lettering books to designers’ work. This is a great addition to any toolkit.
Modernism is the watchword for this font, with a design that emphasises round curves and harmony in its design. The result is characterful at any weight, standing out easily and crisply. A fantastic condensed sans for use when you need to catch the eye.
