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/.
Lane, from the prolific Apostrophic Labs is supplied in three versions – Narrow, Posh, and Upper. Narrow is just the nice, elegant plain jane none stylized version of this thin face. Posh adds the knockout stroke drop shadow look. Upper adds a funky underlined lower case variant to the mix, with underlined lower case vowels being the only thing different from the narrow version. Pretty funky when you need it to be, or just simple if that’s what you are looking for. Download the three LANE truetype faces.
Looking a bit like Gill Sans with less quirkyness, PT Sans was designed by Alexandra Korolkova, Olga Umpeleva and Vladimir Yefimov from Saratoga, California based Paratype. PT Sans is the first pan-Cyrillic public font family. Featuring 8 styles that include PT Sans regular, bold, bold italic and italic, PT Sans narrow and narrow bold, and PT Sans caption and caption bold.
PT Sans family was developed as a part of the project “Public Types of Russian Federation.” The fonts of this project have an open user license and can be freely distributed. The main aim of the project is to give possibility to the peoples of Russia to read and write in their native languages. The project is dedicated to the 300-year anniversary of the civil type invented by Peter the Great in 1708–1710 years and was realized with financial support from Federal Agency for Press and Mass Communications.
Beside standard Western, Central European and Cyrillic code pages the fonts contain characters of all title languages of the Russian Federation that make them unique and a very important tool of modern digital communications.
