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.

Capsuula — from Nitra, Slovak Republic based graphic designer Henrich Fichna (haef) is a very nice, clean legible sans-serif design that would feel equally right used for text or simple headlines- or maybe a presentation would benefit from a nice simple typeface like this. Reminds me a little of some emigre faces from the 90s or a smoother version of this nice face from Betatype called Pill Gothic. Click to Download Capsuula TTF.
