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.

Stencilcase TTF is a nice hand drawn/stencil look ‘toyware’ font from Robot Johnny (John Martz), a cartoonist and illustrator living in Ottawa, Ontario Canada. He also is responsible for the creation of the quirky fun Fruity Drink type face that was posted a few months ago. Johnny says “Remember those little plastic lettering stencils? Now you can more easily make little cruddy letters with this font. Two weights for your fonting enjoyments – regular and extra chunky (er, bold, that is).” That pretty much sums it up – the regular version is a little more scratchy looking and open, the bold adds some weight to the face and closes it up a bit.
