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,
AR Techni is a nice clean techno-inspired, rounded sans-serif face from type and Architectural Designer H.Arroyo from Cartago, Costa Rica.

Lane, from the prolific Apostrophic Labs is supplied in three versions – Narrow, Posh, and Upper. Narrow is just the nice, elegant plain jane none stylized version of this thin face. Posh adds the knockout stroke drop shadow look. Upper adds a funky underlined lower case variant to the mix, with underlined lower case vowels being the only thing different from the narrow version. Pretty funky when you need it to be, or just simple if that’s what you are looking for. Download the three LANE truetype faces.
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.
From Sascha Timplan of Stereotypes in Trier, Germany comes the creative commons opentype face St. Marie – a nice, elegant thin slab serif face with a little bit of chunky curve appeal. Ideal for text and large headlines where you want a nice thin slab, St Marie is versatile and good to have around. Download the St Marie OTF.
Salaryman is a very nice freeware extended sans serif typeface from Patrick Broderick at RotoDesign in San Francisco, CA. The font is supplied as upper case only, and has limited punctuation included in the Truetype face – but Salryman does have a full alphabet and numerals. Nice, Thin, Extended, slightly round at the ends, super legible up close and from afar – Salaryman is a great type choice for headlines. Reminds me of a slightly less refined version of the more angular Miedinger Light from CanadaType. Download Salaryman TTF.
