Every month we add new, innovative fonts and sign up new foundries. In the September 2006 issue of Rising Stars, we show you our top-selling new fonts.
Cyan is designed with geometric Roman proportions. Unlike Trajan, Cyan has lowercase characters in the regular version. Cyan’s weight is similar to Trajan’s but the horizontal strokes are slightly bolder, resulting in better legibility for small sizes, especially for lowercase characters.
Machia is a handwriting script with more than enough ink. We like all three weights: Machia, Xtra One, and Xtra Two. Xtra Two includes fleurons and ornaments.
Crazy David 2 from 066.FONT, a small type design foundry in Poland, makes alternative fonts like this grungy punk design.
Inspired by homemade garage sale signs, Brubeck’s Cube is a fun, hand-illustrated design, a poster font that communicates clearly in a humanist style. Use it to create 3D effects with a stylish color palette.
