Vernon Adams, from Reading, UK is a super productive (one a week is his goal!) web font designer has brought Six Caps to light, a very nice narrow sans-serif caps only face that reminds me of some old wood display type but also has a modern streamlined feeling. In some ways it reminds me of a good old angular tall stand-by; Agency Compressed from Font Bureau with refined, smoother composition. Download the truetype Six Caps font and start capping and be sure to check out Vernon’s web-site for his new faces at http://code.newtypography.co.uk/.
Horst Roman Gothic from Cincinnati, Ohio based logo and type designer Christopher Horst “Horst is a world renowned logo designer, known best in the heavy metal community. He is most versed in, but by no means limited to metal, and he is eager to help you with all your text-based needs.” This one has a nice metal-edge with a gothic feel. Not a full upper lower case setup, but enough letters to set a headline or band name, etc. Check it out! Download Horst Roman Gothic TTF.
Freeway Gothic, a very legible free font from American freeware type designer Tom Oetken. It’s Nice, thick, heavy and bold. It sort of captures the spirit of Font Bureau’s Interstate Bold but is a little more extended with a slightly less polished appeal (to me, that is a good thing – i appreciate a font that isn’t too polished). Maybe this face would work great on a highway sign, or any sign that someone needs to read while speeding past. zoom. zoom. Download Freeway Gothic truetype font file.
Orial Bold, suppplied in Truetype and Opentype formats from Pekalongan, Indonesia based Salman Boosty captures the straight-laced geometric spirit of a simple sans serif face similar to Franklin Gothic and infuses it with beautiful organic floral details. Upper case letters have the vines and leaves growing outside of the letters and in the Lower case they are internal. Salman seems to have started with something plain and common and created something unique and interesting. Great to use in headlines or for display use – drop caps, posters, magazine covers, etc would really look great adorned with this face. Download Orial Bold OTF and TTF fonts.
An overall very nice sans serif and slightly grotesk and slightly rounded opentype typeface, Quicksand is sure to fill the needs if you seek a nice neutral contemporary face for easy to read signage, text, headlines, etc.. (it feels like a marriage between news gothic and vag rounded to me). Supplied in seven styles- Bold, Bold Oblique, Book, Book Oblique, Dash, Light, and Light Oblique – Quicksand had a lot of options! I especially like the Dash style. This diverse face was created by Freelance graphic designer Andrew Paglinawan from Quezon City in the Philippines. Download Quicksand OTF.
