Fashion conscious but not too exclusive, sophisticated but still fresh, Al Fresco brings plenty of inspiring emotions to a designer with a logo to style. European flair and romance abound in the main face and the accompanying swashes and ligatures. Designer Laura Worthington used the word 'Irresistible' as a template and this theme shines in an ever-so-tempting font.
It's caps all the way with this deceptively decorative Antipixel package. Side by side the four weights give a surprising degree of variety, while the elongated letters and charmingly irregular edges suggest everything from Tim Burton movie credits to the label of your skinniest jeans.
03. Bella by Face37
Exclusive to HypeForType, Bella is a classical Didot-inspired beauty suggesting the best of Paris and New York in a single package. Broad strokes and slender curves invoke the impact of vintage headlines, while the minimalist 'stencil' version is an exercise in geometrical perfection. You’ll want to find reasons to employ this delectable award-winning font.
Introducing a serious slab that keeps its cool from Thin right up to Ultra black. This quietly confident companion to Breakers Sans is perfect on the page and raring to go with colour. Spot on for big headers and a breeze for your bold branding.
05. Etch by Produce
Slim grooves, symmetry and perfect spacing are everything in this tribute font to the etched letter plates of yesteryear. Like a ride in a classy hotel elevator, Etch can add a fun and effortless vintage vogue to the job at hand.
Good design doesn't age and the Renaissance influence on this classic-looking serif proves it. Tall x-heights mean every letter makes the most of its space, and while prose flows elegantly on the page, for logo work the accompanying detailed italic is well worth exploring.
Every character in this font is a work of space-age art. The numbers are a futurist dream and the natty outline function brings a whole new level of detail. High impact yet hypnotic, Lunetta's curves, parallels and clever use of space all serve to hold the eye in admiration. What better gift for a logo designer?
A Hype for Type exclusive, this cool stencil font is built on charisma. The unfussy but detailed design looks very at home in a smart urban setting. Think menswear, cycle shops and super-fine stationery for starters.
