Three Rising Stars
Every month we sign up new foundries who provide new, innovative fonts. In this 6th issue of Rising Stars, we want to show you three of our top-selling new fonts.

Kartago is inspired by the inscriptions in the Roman ruins in the city of Cartago in Tunisia. Water Brush is great for casual uses as well as sophisticated events. Clayborn is a newly available font from designer Frank Baranowski. Click any of the samples to find out more:


Water Brush



Clayborn is a bold typeface for headlines and display text. The block-like and roughly shaped characters make this font very useful for building walls of text.

Clayborn is designed by Frank Baranowski, who started transkrypt as a website to showcase experimental projects with typography.
