Seven weights of Advent – three thin, three bold, and a good old reliable regular version. From Athens, Greece (not georgia) based designer Andreas Kalpakides (aka IndeGraphics.) What’s Advent like? A nice simple, elegant one – not too far off from Gill Sans maybe, but a bit more interesting. Quirky but not too out-there. More intriguing than Eurostile, but cut from the same cloth. Good to use for text, or even for display. Download Advent family OTFs,
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.

Peter Wiegel “Cat Fonts!” from Wolgast, Germany brings us this sans-serif TGL 31 034-1, a nice font that looks like a DIN ISO drafting template set of letters – the -1 is regular and -2 is italic version. Nice, clean, modern (to me, it is reminiscent of some emigre faces of the 90s) and easy to read. Download TGL31034-1 and -2 OTFs.
