@NickLutsko I will not rest until everyone I know listens to this 😂
St Friska, based on old movie title lettering, is made just for headlines. It comes with a slight touch and feeling of art deco but it’s designed to be contemporary in 2010 and beyond. Friska comes with a big bunch of OpenType features, so a designer can play with it like Lego, using it alongside old or new typefaces. It has stylistic sets and lots of ligatures.

In addition, Romeo has an affordable set of ornaments, connectors and catchwords to complete this attractive display system.

Graphic designers with a lust for lettering are constantly seeking scripts balanced neatly on the sweet spot suited for exuberant editorial work and messages of cheer. Neither frivolous nor strict. Gioviale, satisfies that need.
Your work may call for a script that is handsome without being overly formal, that is merry, playful, and, like a good Italian pastry dough, hasn't been overly handled until it is left stiff and flat. Use Gioviale to create something tasty, al dente, a touch ornate yet fluent and full of life. Its versatility is exemplified in its greater readability at small sizes compared to other scripts, as well as the included alternates and swashes.
Trend Hand Made is a font made of layers, taking as a basis a sans and a slab font. It is the result of observation, search and study of the last global trends.

It is a typeface designed to be used without need to add anything external to it, because it has all components required for this.
Lately we're doing a lot of print campaigns, and have been favoring Bebas, League Gothic and Arvo. Looking to mix it up, we gave this a try and loved it! Cyntho Slab is a modern geometric slab serif with eight weights varying from Thin to Black and featuring extensive language support including Cyrillic and Greek scripts.
Unlike most geometric slab faces, it offers optional upright and real italics, wrapped in OpenType ‘stylistic alternates’ feature, or stylistic set #02, where sets can be applies separately. The small caps are included as well. This typeface is great for use in magazines, posters, advertising, corporate identity, and more.
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.
