Introducing Futura Now: The definitive version of an iconic family.

Futura Now is the definitive version of the definitive geometric sans, re-digitized based on Paul Renner’s original designs and updated to provide a more contemporary typographic palette.

Meet FS Rosa

Serif typefaces are sometimes seen as serious and overtly intellectual, a more somber sister to their laid-back counterpart, the sans serif. But FS Rosa breaks away from these conventions by combining the classic elegance of a serif with warmth and frivolity, created by its round letterforms and curves. 

Meet Macklin.

Malou Verlomme’s Macklin superfamily is a gently irreverent take on the display type of the late 19th century, with an elegant twist that updates these letterforms for modern use. Choose one style, or use the entire variable family as a type toolbox.

Veto Sans and the art and craft of Marco Ganz

“Typeface design is not an art. It’s a craft,” says Marco Ganz, the designer of Veto Sans. “People are familiar with letters. Letters have a purpose. Art has no purpose beyond making people think or wonder.”

Meet Placard Next.

Placard Next is a reimagined version of a 1930s poster design, that takes all the original quirky details and refines them for digital use. Its condensed versions pack an instant typographic punch when used at large sizes, introducing some unusual flavor to posters, headlines and anywhere else designers need to make a statement.

A digital-ready Chinese sans-serif is born.

Many Chinese typefaces have a reputation for looking dated and not reading easily on small screens— not M Ying Hei. It checks all the boxes that it’s forefathers can’t.

Tazugane Gothic.

The first Japanese typeface from Monotype is a humanist sans serif, designed to work in partnership with Neue Frutiger. Tazugane Gothic sets out to introduce a new typographic standard, allowing designers to comfortably set Latin and Japanese characters alongside one another while maintaining visual harmony.

Meet Hope Sans.

Hope Sans has been selected by the judges of the 22nd Annual TDC Typeface Design Competition to receive the Certificate of Typographic Excellence. It will be included in the Annual of the Type Directors Club, “The World’s Best Typography,” and will also be shown at the 65th Awards Exhibition (TDC65) in New York City.

Introducing Sagrantino.

Sagrantino is a non-connecting script that traces its roots back to hand-drawn letterforms, and the connection between pen and paper. Named after the Italian wine, Sagrantino is bold and full of flavor, while embodying a sense of freedom and fluidity. Its quirky character shines at larger sizes – making it perfect for headlines, posters, or anywhere type is needed to really make a point. The family is available as OpenType Pro fonts, and has an extended character set that supports most Central European and many Eastern European languages.
