I am a sucker for Sanrio. This swanky Little Twin Stars (kiki and lala) display typeface is a creation from 2006 by talented seamstress, artist and writer Choly Knight aka Shori Ameshiko. If you like nice tall elegant curleycue letters for your fancypants designs, this is a pretty decent choice. Download the Little Twin Stars TTF! Did you know Kiki can fly through the sky using the star on his back??
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/.
Josefin Sans Light is a nice fresh face from Typemade, a new independent foundry based in Monterrey, Mexico. “The idea for create this typeface was to make it geometric, elegant and kind of vintage, special for titling. It is based on 1927 Rudolf Koch’s Kabel, 1930 Rudolf Wolf’s Memphis, 1927 Paul Renner’s Futura. My idea was to draw something with good style, specifically that reflects the swedish design and their passion for good lifestyle, and by default all other scandinavian styles. The x-height is half the way from baseline to caps height, unlike any other modern typeface.” Download Josefin Sans Light OTF font.
Tall Films, from Graham Meade of GemFonts (who is also responsible for the earlier posted Easter themed font BUNNY) is a slim, sleek, tall face that has a lot of potential for use in headlines, movie posters, really any display work – legible and with some unique style of its own – it comes in six flavors – Tall, Fine, Oblique, Expanded, Expanded Oblique, and Fine Oblique.
