Give your work a cosmopolitan feel with this New York-inspired font

It's always a good idea to keep your design armoury well-stocked with fresh fonts, and the latest typeface from London-based type foundry Fontsmith looks like a the perfect addition to your collection of professional fonts.

FS Irwin is a text-oriented, humanist sans-serif. It was created by Fontsmith's senior designer Fernando Mello, and inspired by New York and his time studying typeface design at the Cooper Union's five-week Cooper Condensed Program.

Jim McCauley

Jim McCauley is a writer, performer and cat-wrangler who started writing professionally way back in 1995 on PC Format magazine, and has been covering technology-related subjects ever since, whether it's hardware, software or videogames. A chance call in 2005 led to Jim taking charge of Computer Arts' website and developing an interest in the world of graphic design, and eventually led to a move over to the freshly-launched Creative Bloq in 2012. Jim now works as a freelance writer for sites including Creative Bloq, T3 and PetsRadar, specialising in design, technology, wellness and cats, while doing the occasional pantomime and street performance in Bath and designing posters for a local drama group on the side.
