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 July 2015 has to be ‘Catfish’, a monoline geometric script that has a classic and vintage feel to it. Scroll down to check out ‘Jules’ and the other great fonts we discovered in July 2015.
“Intro Rust is one of the biggest packages on the market, including 214 fonts. The font family is a rough version of the famous Intro. Intro Rust includes 4 sub-families – Intro Rust, Intro Script, Intro Head and Intro Goodies. It can be used to create almost all types of design projects like print materials and web design. Just use your imagination and your project will become more alive and vivid than ever with one of the Intro Rust fonts.”
“When Dupla was designed, its DNA shown the best of the typographic heritage from the XIX century types, the oldest san serif known, also named as “Grotesk”, a soft synonym for bizarre, unnatural weird.”
“Blog Script, the second collaboration between Carolina Marando and Alejandro Paul, after their successful stint with the Distillery set of fonts. This typeface comes in two weights, alternates for most letters, and a strong aesthetic rooted in individuality and freedom of spirit. Use it to be alone together, to tell the world that we’re still human, for now.”
“Hudson NY is a display font that gives you strong and bold typography with three different styles that make up the family, a regular, serif and slab serif. Hudson NY is an adaptation and progression of Roper Font, and like Roper font it comes in regular and a press versions, giving the user some cool options when creating artwork. The golden thread that ties this family together is its American sports and college styling, it gives Hudson NY an authentic look but at the same time there is a modern approach to the character set.”
“Titular is a condensed Sans Serif typeface that works well with headings, subheadings, newspapers, magazines as well as with logotypes, brands and posters. This typeface revives the spirit of old Woodtypes, but adding a contemporary flavour and Latin American seasoning. The family comes with 2 subfamilies: one regular and one alternative. Just like many of our faces, every subfamily includes 7 weights plus italics.”
“Catfish is a monoline geometric script with a touch of classic and vintage and can be used for various purposes such as logos, badges, t-shirt design, signage, labels, book cover design, posters etc…”
“Paintlay is a casual and laid-back brush script font. Bouncy baseline, upright strokes and soft forms are the main characteristic of Paintlay. What sets this font apart from others is the layers that include Base layer, two different highlight layers and two shadow layers.”
