@NickLutsko I will not rest until everyone I know listens to this 😂
We're just nuts about typography. Font maniacs, as we like to say. Ten years ago, when we began this business, you could count the number of web-safe fonts on two-hands. Today, thanks to the Google Fonts project and several other brilliant coding groups, your choices are endless. We celebrate by featuring our newest favorite font on the first Friday of every month! You can also learn about typography on the web and in print, plus view some of our favorite work!
Our new favorite for book and annual report layouts, Quiroga Serif began in 2007 with the name Quadratta Serif.
This typography was designed for continuous text, legible at medium and small sizes, with great saving of space, optimized for 6, 8, 10 and 12 points. The morphology is a mix between tradition and innovation; it has a vertical axis, thick serifs, tall x-height, light modulation and a lot of internal space between letters: key to improve legibility at small sizes.
Aria Pro is a luxuriously crafted display face, drawn from an inscription its creator, Rui Abreu discovered on the frame of a nineteenth century painting. Abreu calls the typeface “lyrical” — it is a font for headlines that sing their content rather than recite it in a neutral voice. Aria is expressive and musical, yet without becoming loquacious or bombastic — its economic and modest ornamentation keeps it feeling useful. We await its companion text family with keen anticipation.
We're always in the mood for a fun script. This one reminds us of Lobster, but works better than Lobster when the need for distressing a font arises. Number Five is pure Americana, suitable for titling, display, logo, signage, and editorial work. Its two versions, Smooth and Rough, are constructed similarly, yet imbued with distinct feelings and uses.
