Hailed as one of the greatest web fonts of all time, Proxima Nova is a complete workhorse with a total of 144 weights. The family itself consists or three main widths including Proxima Nova, Proxima Nova Condensed, and Proxima Nova Extra Condensed. Each of these widths come with supporting true italics.Stylistically, Proxima Nova straddles the gap between typefaces like Futura and Akzidenz Grotesk. The result is a hybrid combining humanistic proportions with a somewhat geometric appearance.
Futura is a timeless classic. Created in the 1920s this timeless typeface still looks as fresh today as it did almost 100 years ago. It’s not just a pretty face either, as Futura contains a total of 39 weights with beautiful obliques and logo-perfect outlines. Our favourite is Futura Bold Condensed used heavily by major brands such as Nike.

The result is a modern, clear and infinitely flexible interpretation of slab serif fonts.

Franklin Gothic and it’s related tribute typefaces are realise sans-serif fonts originally created by Morris Fuller Benton in 1902. Gothic was known as a modern term, meaning sans-serif and Franklin Gothic falls nicely into that category. Similar to Futura, Franklin Gothic remains to be yet another timeless classic in the world of type designer, and the digital version continues to look as modern today as it did back in 1902 when it was originally released.
Bringing together features from early European grotesques and American gothics, Kostas Bartokas’ Averta (Greek: ‘αβέρτα’ – to act or speak openly, bluntly or without moderation, without hiding) is a new geometric sans serif family with a simplistic, yet appealing, personality. The purely geometric rounds, open apertures, and its low contrast strokes manage to express an unmoderated, straightforward tone resulting in a modernist, neutral and friendly typeface. Averta is intended for use in a variety of media. The central styles (Light through Bold) are drawn to perform at text sizes, while the extremes are spaced tighter to form more coherent headlines. The dynamism of the true italics adds a complementary touch to the whole family and provides extra versatility, making Averta an excellent tool for a range of uses, from signage to branding and editorial design.
