Now my feelings about didones are more than evident. After some years of roman-abstinence (1) I present Heroe, an interesting combination of elegance and sensuality. Heroe, spanish for hero, takes some aspects of roman typefaces to the extreme like my main inspiration, the great Herb Lubalin, did in the majority of his works: Thins turned into hairlines, altered proportions (for display purposes), unique ball terminals, poetic curves and a graceful way of placing them together on a layout. Its classy style makes the font perfect for a wide range of uses. Imagine Heroe Inline (my favorite) dancing over a bottle of perfume; printed on the cover of a fashion magazine; lighting wedding invitations up. Its partner, Heroe Monoline, may help you to make more elaborated pieces of design. Just combine it with Heroe, or Heroe Inline and see how perfect they match. The difference between Pro and Std styles is the quantity of glyphs. While Pro styles have all the decorative characters available, Standard ones have only the basic set of them. Heroe Monoline Big and Heroe Monoline Small where made for better printing purposes. If you need to print the font in small sizes, then your choice should be Small. Heroe Monoline has the same alternates (and open-type code) as Heroe Pro and Inline, plus some decorative ligatures.

Geogrotesque Stencil is the newest member of the popular Geogrotesque family, it has been thought as a display typeface, but it goes one step further and tries to solve some of the typical problems of stencils fonts. Most stencil fonts don't have a wide range of weights, Geogrotesque Stencil has a range of 7 weights. Another characteristic of this type of fonts is that the cut usually does not adapt well to the size or the use of different materials, generally it has a wide cut that works well in small sizes but in larger sizes is not very elegant, on the other hand a thin cut does not work in small sizes and affects the reading. Geogrotesque Stencil tries to solve these problems with 3 levels of cut (A, B and C). The thin cut (version A) matches the stem width of the Thin weight, in version B is twice as wide and in the version C is three times more wide. The cut maintains the same width through all weights and are not rounded, also other details have been modified for this stencil version, such as the “notch” of the n, a, b, d, p and q, or k where the horizontal arm disappears, these adjustments allow a better functionality of the typeface. The cuts not only allow a better performance when printing at different sizes, but also allow you to use the version A, B or C in accordance to the rigidity of the material you have, for rigid materials use the version A where the cut is more thin and passes unnoticed, while for lighter materials you can use the version C where cuts are wider and help keeping the material more stable. The type family consists of 21 styles, 7 weights (Thin, UltraLight, Light, Regular, Medium, SemiBold and Bold) available in 3 versions (A, B and C) in Open Type format with support for Central and Eastern European languages.

Eduardo Danilo’s dramatic redesign of El Universal, a leading Mexico City daily, introduced Cyrus Highsmith’s Zocalo. The original text, and display series was tuned for distinct character frequency and repetition when set in Spanish. Nicholas Kis’s oldstyle and Chauncey Griffith’s classic newsface Ionic No. 5 inspired the sturdy text while the “energetic character of Mexico City” influenced the display. Zocalo Display has sharp, slightly bracketed & tapered serifs, plus a higher contrast between thick and thin strokes, giving it great elegance and sparkle. Its crisp and energetic details shine forth in headlines and titles. In medium sizes, Display lends a vibrant panache to callouts and pull-quotes.

Choplin is a modern and clear geometric slab serif with a sturdy heart. It was designed based on the Campton Family, with the same principles in mind: geometry, simplicity and neutrality. As a consequence, Choplin could be seen as an immediate companion to the Campton Family. However, during the process lots of details were changed in order to sharpen the slab serif character which resulted in a slightly different interpretation. Similar to Campton, it is perfectly suited for graphic design applications ranging from editorial, corporate, web, interaction to product design. In addition, it has an extended range of alternative glyphs, ligatures and opentype features which provide flexibility and uniqueness wherever it is placed.
