I’ve been in a font rut lately. My go-to fonts are Brandon Grotesque and Mrs. Eaves, but for display type I need to be continually inspired. While I own hundreds of fonts, I get bored easily. I imagine it’s much like any one with a large shoe collection.
In search of my next must have fonts, I’ve been doing some “research”. We’ll call it that because it makes me feel better about my spending. Here are a few new and creative fonts I’m diggin’ right now.*
*Subject to change, considering I mentioned before that I get font bored. 😉
This creative pair of fonts gets its inspiration from New York City and its traditional historic architecture and skyscrapers. TT Knickerbockers Grotesk is a narrow contrast sans-serif with characteristic elements sending us back to the 19th century. There’s also a reference to antiqua fonts. In TT Knickerbockers Grotesk you will find unusual characters, stylistic alternatives and ligatures.
TT Knickerbockers Script is a brushpen script with a slight touch of aristocracy. TT Knickerbockers Script consists of 967 characters and also contains a huge number of contextual alternatives and ligatures.
Montecatini takes its cues from the elegant Stile Liberty travel posters of Italy in the early 1900s. The font features distinctive ligatures typical of the time when Art Nouveau emerged as a worldwide phenomenon. Everything looks better in Montecatini, from book jackets to monograms to packaging and logos—and the wide selection of ligatures make copyfitting a delight.
Luchador is a serif display typeface in two styles with layered ornaments that will pack your next creative project full with weight, character and charisma like a Mexican wrestler. The Luchador family consists of Luchador Regular and Luchador Oblique as well as an ornamental bonus – Luchador Lines. All styles have over 300+ glyphs and supports a great amount of international languages.
Ravensara Antiqua Stencil is display font family with 9 weights, from Thin to Extrablack with hightest contrast. This font was inspired by old style classic typefaces, such as Didone and Baskerville, and got a modern feel by getting rid of unnecessary details and adding stencil elements to it. Perfect for branding, packaging, headlines, posters, presentations, short texts.
This vintage font was inspired by traditional calligraphy and the wonderful mystic soundtrack of Wojciech Kilar. Additional decorative frames enhance the character of the font. In general, it creates a luxurious and elegant look in design. Aurora comes with Clean and Aged versions, beautiful uppercase and lowercase alternates, ligatures and loved by many end-swashes. It’s very well suited for logotypes, wedding invitations, and others.
