Whether you are an aspiring motion graphic artist, editor, graphic designer, or web designer, keeping an eye out for new fonts is essential to keeping your design aesthetic fresh. Who knows, you might discover a new font that is a perfect fit for an upcoming project. Every month we explore the web and share with you a few favorite fonts we discovered along the way. Our favorite font from March 2015 so far has to be ‘HAZMAT’, a bold eye-catching font that combines my love for both geometric and stencil-based designs. The font uses a distinctive stencil, using angular characters to give the font an energetic look and feel. Scroll down to check out ‘HAZMAT’ and the other great fonts we discovered this month.
“Elegant script typeface in two versions; Black and White.”
“Bambino Font Family is a typography project by Milos Mitrovic and affiliates. Bambino has an influence of 1920’s Futura like fonts and art deco look and feel. Combining it’s vintage character with clean geometric form and organic flow, Bambino is shaped to fit modern aesthetics. There are 12 fonts (six weights with italics) included in the family.”
“This is a typeface specially designed for logotypes, but can also be used in headlines, posters & signage. It has many OpenType programming features, that give a more playful and rhythmic spirit, creating an interesting geometric-sans and script mixture.”
“Violenta font family has been designed for Graviton Font Foundry by Pablo Balcells in 2015. It is a display, geometric typeface, with a condensed design and sharp angles that provides an aggresive and strong appearence.”
““Moho” is inspired by the Victorian sans shapes, movements and expressions of modernism art deco and constructivism, conceiving a decorative and elegant font, modern and readable display. This provides a retro look style of elegance of the 30s. Moho Condensed font family is straight, vertical, with joints and links or curvilinear or angular. Moho provides an innovation in the form of letters, to replace traditional forms of curves by straight or vice versa.”
“Created with the intention to be different from other stencils, the cut of the font has been designed to create eye catching and intriguing displays. HAZMAT works very well at small sizes for legible and detailed typesetting and is equally successful when used at bigger sizes for creating large format, powerful graphics.”
“Oozing of old large neon signs, Borgstrand is retro, strong and selfconfident. Being perfectly balanced in stroke, width and height, it is so versatile you can use it for anything; logos, posters, menus, signs, book covers, magazine headlines, and more.”
