Dino dos Santos for DSType

Acta works brilliantly in display, headline and text styles—with individual optical sizes for each specialty. The family’s broad range of weights provides options for variation in tone across a publication’s sections and in response to changes in season or circumstance.

Neue Swift

Gerard Unger for Linotype

Gerard Unger’s Swift® typeface aims to strike a balance between design and functionality rather than to invoke a certain feeling. Its high, tapered joints and large counterforms hold up to news press standards and reinforce its linear nature.

Jordi Embodas for Tipografies

Pona beautifully sets text, adding depth and lyrical movement, all with an economical fit. Its display weights achieve a sympathetic voice with finer hairlines and adjustments in axis and gesture. Both sets come in a range of weights for matching the right detail and density to the medium.
