@NickLutsko I will not rest until everyone I know listens to this 😂
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.
Meet Ollie, a casual signage script whose friendly, bouncy exterior belies a heart of sophisticated OpenType programming. This font is designed to make the most of OpenType savvy applications, and as such is recommended for professional design use. Or to put it another way: Make sure that contextual alternates and ligatures are always turned on!
Aphrodite, available in Pro, Slim and (our favorite) Contenxtual, is an amazing handmade font full of alternate and ligature forms designed by Sabrina Lopez and Maximiliano Sproviero.
The award-winning Hipster Script by Alejandro Paul is based on a style of hand lettering that was created for advertising in the 1940s and 1950s yet stills looks fresh today. While the lettershapes have their roots in copperplate script styles, it's the tool that made the difference.
Hera Big is a type family in eight weights & 16 fonts. The family explores the motion and fluidity of the ball serif, in an evolution from its previous identity as a counterpart to the slab serif. Informed by great fat-faces from Figgins to Lubalin, but never deferring to precedent by default, Hera is a fresh mix of originality and organic form, never sacrificing function for beauty.
