Move fast and break stuff

With Linotype Albatross, Hans-Jürgen Ellenberger has played with flames that come out of the exhausts from Michael Schumacher's Ferrari, or the hot rod cars in America, or at tractor pulling contests. This gives this sans serif face a speedy and wavy flavour. It fits ideally for speedy headlines like for bikers couriers.

Please handle with cake

ITC Farmhaus is the work of British designer Tim Donaldson and is, in his own words, "Neil Young meets Paul Renner." Donaldson borrowed the perfect circles and clean lines of Renner's drawings for Futura and gave them jagged edges and uneven, thick strokes. Farmhaus contains one set of capitals and two sets of lower case letters.

No cross railing lest suddenness happens

Freak out and drink all the liquor

Wisteria was designed by Michael Stacey and appeared in the ITC library in 1995. It is a robust script font with doubled strokes which look as though they were written with a broad split pen tip.

Tether even a roasted chicken

The impulse behind André Maaßen's design of the Anno typeface was the design of a New Year's card for the year 2000 (Anno 2000). His desire to create the perfect printed image developed into a family with four styles: Anno 1, Anno 1 Italic, Anno 2, and Anno 2 Italic. Anno 1 and its Italic are semi-classicist typefaces, with a high degree of stroke contrast, while Anno 2 and its Italic are... Read More

Set goods afire, paste at will

In your mind, you know what the letters should look like. That’s why FF Fontesque’s funhouse-mirror–style distortion is so successful at disorienting and drawing in the unsuspecting onlooker. The typeface keeps it loose with extreme proportions, unpredictable character axis, a bouncing baseline, and wild variation of stroke weight. The designer, Nick Shinn, argues that all the irregularity only... Read More
