Apercu Pro Bold

Aperçu was started in December 2009, and has been trialled and tested through a number of design comissions taken on by The Entente through 2010. The conceit behind Aperçu was to create a synopsis or amalgamation of classic realist typefaces: Johnston, Gill Sans, Neuzeit & Franklin Gothic.

Since its release in August 2010, Aperçu quickly found its position in the market, being used across a variety of different media and sectors around the world in both print and web. It has been utilized by institutions such as MOMA, De Wiels, Zeit Magazine and the Walker Art Center. 

It seemed a fitting point to look at extending its supportt for Central Eastern European and Cyrillic-based languages. Now with more than 530 characters per weight, Aperçu Pro arrives.

Lato Ultra Bold

In the last ten or so years, dur­ing which Łukasz has been design­ing type, most of his projects were rooted in a par­tic­u­lar design task that he needed to solve. With Lato, it was no dif­fer­ent. Orig­i­nally, the fam­ily was con­ceived as a set of cor­po­rate fonts for a large client — who in the end decided to go in dif­fer­ent styl­is­tic direc­tion, so the fam­ily became avail­able for a pub­lic release.

When work­ing on Lato, Łukasz tried to care­fully bal­ance some poten­tially con­flict­ing pri­or­i­ties. He wanted to cre­ate a type­face that would seem quite “trans­par­ent” when used in body text but would dis­play some orig­i­nal traits when used in larger sizes.

He used clas­si­cal pro­por­tions (par­tic­u­larly vis­i­ble in the upper­case) to give the let­ter­forms famil­iar har­mony and ele­gance. At the same time, he cre­ated a sleek sanserif look, which makes evi­dent the fact that Lato was designed in 2010 — even though it does not fol­low any cur­rent trend.

Proxima Nova Bold

Proxima Nova (2005) is a complete reworking of Proxima Sans (1994).

The original six fonts (three weights with italics) have been expanded to 42 full-featured OpenType fonts.

There are three widths: Proxima Nova, Proxima Nova Condensed, Proxima Nova Extra Condensed. Each width consists of 14 fonts—seven weights with matching italics.

Proxima Nova straddles the gap between typefaces like Futura and Akzidenz Grotesk. The result is a hybrid combining humanistic proportions with a somewhat geometric appearance.

Open Sans is available in a large number of variants for a font with an open license.

There are 5 variants for weight (300 Book, 400 Normal, Semi-Bold 600, Bold 700 and Extra Bold 800) and each one has a italic version, totalling 10 variants. There's also a separate font called Open Sans condensed with 3 width variations.

Source Sans Bold

Adobe has released a new open source font family by the name of Source Sans Pro.

You can check out and download the various font weights and styles in both OTF and TTF formats from Adobe.

There’s a PDF glyph sample available as well. Both Adobe Typekit and Google Web Fonts are serving up hosted copies, if you’d like an easy way to use Source Sans Pro on your website.

Source Sans Pro makes a nice headline font on the web, with a nod to classic News Gothic headline fonts of the early 20th century.

Adobe typeface designer Paul D. Hunt created Source Sans Pro. “I was drawn to the forms of the American Type Founders’ gothics designed by Morris Fuller Benton…. I have always been impressed by the forms of his News Gothic and Franklin Gothic,” writes Hunt on the Adobe Type Blog.

The goal behind Source Sans Pro was to create a font that’s “both legible in short UI labels, as well as being comfortable to read in longer passages of text on screen and in print.”Adobe’s plan is to use the new font in its open source applications, and indeed Source Sans Pro is already part of the WebKit-based code editor, Brackets.

An earlier incarnation was used in the Strobe Media Playback framework. (in Strobe, Source Sans Pro is known as Playback Sans).In addition to the font itself, Adobe is releasing the underlying source materials so that anyone who’d like to can modify Source Sans Pro to suit their whims. Source Sans Pro is available under the OSI-approvedSIL Open Font License.
