There are over 2,200 fonts in my digital font library at the moment. They include all-time classics, well-done newbies and outstanding specialities.
In this blog article I want to introduce you to six of the fonts that I currently like most:
Noyh is quite a new font which was developed by the Thai Chatnarong Jingsuphatada and published by Typesketchbook. It has a huge bandwidth of different styles (72 to be precise!) and combines a geometric, cool look with subtle round edges. This gives Noyh a nice and modern touch. Currently, Noyh is my absolute favourite in my font library.
By the way, a new, more rustic alternative has joined the family quite recently: Noyh A.
Combined with Noto Serif Bold (set in majuscules), Noyh looks wonderful, see an example here in one of my latest client projects:
2. NOYH SLIM
3. NOTO SERIF
I mentioned Noto Serif in point 1. But also on its own, Noto Serif is lovely. A classic elegance, dominant and strong though thanks to quite a high x-height. This makes Noto Serif perfect for reading especially in small sizes and on screens. (PS: Noto Serif was designed by Google Inc.)
The Viennese typography studio Typejockeys describes their font Aniuk as "quite a cool font family", which it definitely is. Aniuk was designed by Thomas Gabriel and I like the very well executed mix of strength of character, round shapes with a serious touch. When looking at it, you might discover that a lot is bent upwards, making the font kinda smiling at you. And this puts a smile on my face as well.
Akko was created by Akira Kobayashi back in 2011, 2015 it underwent a facelift. I used Akko in the course of a magazine redesign in summer 2017. I bought the font on Fontshop and instantly fell in love with Akko (in my blog post of 19 June 2017 you can find out why). The technical understatement combined with a distinctive look makes this font an all time favourite for me.
Another great piece of work by Typejockeys is Henriette, the reinterpretation of a classic. Something for retro lovers and geeks!
