Four Rising Stars
Every month we add new, innovative fonts and sign up new foundries. In this 30th issue of Rising Stars, we want to show you 4 of our top-selling new fonts.

Machia
Machia is a handwriting script with more than enough ink. We like all three weights: Machia, Xtra One, and Xtra Two. Xtra Two includes fleurons and ornaments.

Brubeck's Cube
Inspired by homemade garage sale signs, Brubeck’s Cube is a fun, hand-illustrated design, a poster font that communicates clearly in a humanist style. Use it to create 3D effects with a stylish color palette.

Crazy David 2
Crazy David 2 from 066.FONT, a small type design foundry in Poland, makes alternative fonts like this grungy punk design.

Cyan
Cyan is designed with geometric Roman proportions. Unlike Trajan, Cyan has lowercase characters in the regular version. Cyan’s weight is similar to Trajan’s but the horizontal strokes are slightly bolder, resulting in better legibility for small sizes, especially for lowercase characters.

Follow-Up

Last month we featured High Society as one of our four Rising Stars. Currently #13 on the MyFonts Best Sellers list, High Society is based on a delightful, delicious, de-lovely offering from Blandford Press's 1946 tome, Lettering for the Commercial Artist. It is an elegant swash design with a retro appeal.
