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.
Nobile from Vernon Adams – a furniture restorer, woodcarver and typeface designer – via newtypo is licensed under the SIL Open Font License. Nobile is designed to work with the technologies of digital screens and handheld devices without losing the distinctive look more usually found in fonts designed for printing. Going back to William Morris’s baseline “Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful”, the aim was to design a font that could function well, have good legibility on screen yet also be good loooking, not only at larger display sizes but also right down to small text sizes.
