Another nice legible elegant face that’s been floating around a while with no real trackable origin – from ‘rda_dgsn’ is all i really know. Some people say it looks like Myriad Pro from Adobe a bit too much, but I like it just the same. Download the four styles (bold, bold italic, regular, and italic) that make up GranDesign Neue Serif TTFS. Anyone know any more about where this font came from?
Seven weights of Advent – three thin, three bold, and a good old reliable regular version. From Athens, Greece (not georgia) based designer Andreas Kalpakides (aka IndeGraphics.) What’s Advent like? A nice simple, elegant one – not too far off from Gill Sans maybe, but a bit more interesting. Quirky but not too out-there. More intriguing than Eurostile, but cut from the same cloth. Good to use for text, or even for display. Download Advent family OTFs,
From Pablo Impallari (design, argentenia) with the help of Igino Marini (spacing and kerning, italy) comes the Cabin family. Pablo is also behind the Lobster Font i posted a while back, Cabin is a nice serious sans serif typeface that comes in 8 styles – Regular, Italic, Medium, Medium Italic, SemiBold, SemiboldItalic, Bold, BoldItalic. Upon first impression Cabin has a very typical humanist sans-serif feel, smooth with curves, thin and light but still authoritative. It’s not Helvetica or Gill Sans, although some people who don’t look too close may confuse it. Cabin is elegantly modern and refreshing and highly useable for print and web designs and it’s a great alternative to fonts people see every day. (and check out that @!!) Download Cabin TTFs.
A typeface by London, England based “FACTORY” designer Peter Saville, I am not sure if this is actually from him or if someone just took it and recreated it under the influence of New Orders 1981 album “Movement”, but it’s a great face – i especially like the lowercase f’s ascender and angular side, the circular counters and unique stubby semi-serif on the lowercase contrasting the straight sans heavyness of the uppercase.

Cantarell was designed by Dave Crossland from the University of Reading as a contemporary Humanist sans serif face, and was developed for on-screen reading; in particular, reading web pages on an HTC Dream mobile phone. It is a TTF in four styles with Regular, Regular Bold, Oblique and Oblique Bold. Check out that crazy italic lowercase f! Download Cantarell TTF
