September 2006 Rising Stars

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

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

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

Crazy David 2 from 066.FONT, a small type design foundry in Poland, makes alternative fonts like this grungy punk design.

Brubeck's Cube

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.

    Love Cyan. Always on the lookout for elegant fonts. Trajan’s been done to death. A U/L alternative is definitely welcome.

    Any plans of italics?

  2. […] Saw this slick new font on MyFonts blog this morning. The design of Cyan was inspired by features found in classic Roman and styles like Trajan and Bodebeck. […]

  3. Schöner Newsletter bei myfonts

    Wer sich bei myfonts.com anmeldet, zB. um sich von dort ein paar der kostenlosen Schriften herunterzuladen (von denen es durchaus ein paar ansehnliche in deren Schriftarchiv gibt), der muss sich dort mit seiner E-Mail anmelden.
    Schöner Nebeneffe…
