New fonts from TypeCulture
Typekit is happy to introduce TypeCulture as our newest foundry partner. Designer Mark Jamra is now offering a number of new families at Typekit for web, with select styles available for Creative Cloud desktop sync, and a few more font families to come soon.
Expo Sans performs wonderfully in both display and text. Its contemporary humanist proportions and letterforms read well at smaller sizes, while it has a decidedly quirky edge when set larger, thanks to unique glyph characteristics like triangular i-dots and angled terminals and crossbars. Expo Sans is also available in a Condensed width. Multiple styles of each are available for desktop sync.
Latienne is a serif face inspired by the 19th century Latines, with a gentle, slightly playful character. Go all-out with the swash caps if it’s a big, swooping header you’re after, or scale it down for body text. The triangular serifs give a sense of gravity to the letters. Select styles are available for desktop sync.
Tacitus is based on a fifth-century brush-written letterform (the Capitalis Rustica) and painstakingly adapted for our modern alphabet. The all caps typeface has soft brushy edges and gentle curves, while retaining a rigid verticality exemplified by its condensed width. Meanwhile, Alphatier takes inspiration from runes, shorthand, and archaic letterforms — among other sources. While it’s an experimental departure from most traditional letterforms, the result is casual, loose, and accessible.
We’re excited to welcome TypeCulture as a new foundry partner, and this set is just the start — more fonts are coming soon. If you’ve never tried Typekit, sign up and take a look around, and upgrade to a paid plan when you’re ready.
