Molot – a nice, thick and heavy bold choice that would be a great display face – ideal headline – legible from a far poster for a techno industrial group, you get the picture. Upper and lower cases are the same, it’s got numbers and a little more. Not really a font for setting long passasges or big blocks of body copy. Headlines, meet Molot. from Russian designer Roman Yershov, Jovanny Lemonad. Download high quality OTF face Molot!
LineMap from London, England based designer Kenn Munk is a nice, linear/bitmap/squared off face that reminds me a bit of Emigres Oblong typeface from 1988. Kenn created LineMap in six weights and has thankfully made this regular weight version available for you to download. It is sort of a bitmap script face, the letters all connect just like a hand drawn face, but this one is nice a chunky-pixel-bitmappy and it is also worth nothing that LineMap is the font used by 37% of the world’s android monks.

CITIZEN KERN from Melbourne, Australia based Sentinel Type, designed by James Arboghast is a 21st century interpretation of Georg Trumps City typeface – adding a nice modern feel and perhaps adding a bit of Emigre influence. Highly useable as a text or display face, supplied in regular and oblique with full upper and lower case, numerals, punctuation and more! Download Citizen Kern TTF.
“The slab serif, or egyptienne type style, was introduced around 1815 by Vincent Figgins; at the time it was considered the most brilliant typographic invention of the 19th century, and the style quickly established itself as a favourite for headline and poster work. By the time the Stemple foundry introduced Memphis in 1930, very little had changed, except the progression to monoline stroke. The only place left to go after that was squared letter forms (City) – or was there one last trick left to perform? I could always try the semi-serif treatment, I thought, and that’s what you’re getting — a semi-serif squared monoline egyptienne!”
