New FontFont web fonts

More FontFont fonts are now available to host on Typekit — including five new designs: FF Sero, FF Tundra, FF Nuvo Mono, FF Signa Stencil, and FF Signa Serif Stencil. In addition, FF Profile, FF Info Correspondence, FF Dolores, FF Gothic, FF Kipp, FF OCR F, FF Sari, FF Utility, FF Zwo, and FF Zwo Correspondence are now available as web fonts.

FF Sero

Top to bottom: FF Sero Web Pro Medium Italic, Light Italic, and Regular (source text)

Smooth and straightforward, FF Sero’s modest mix of grotesque and humanist qualities make it the right solution to a variety of design problems. This brand new family’s maturity is most evident when several of its many styles – eight weights, each with an italic, plus small caps – are used together for compositional textures capable of both calm and contrast.

FF Tundra

Top, left to right: FF Tundra Web Pro Light, Regular, Medium, Demibold. Below: Extra Light Italic, Bold (source text)

Designed for continuous text, FF Tundra exhibits many qualities of a workhorse text typeface — a high x-height, moderate contrast, and unique letterforms that, put together, produce beautiful word shapes and consistent typographic color. Being a narrow face, Tundra’s text weights set economically, and its Bold and Extra Light weights can work at display sizes. Eighteen styles overall — six weights, each with an italic, plus small caps.

FF Nuvo Mono

Top left: FF Nuvo Mono Web Pro Extra Bold. Code: Regular and Italic. Below: Medium Italic, Black Italic.

Anyone for fancy view source? FF Nuvo Mono seems to have been inspired in equal parts by circuit board, typewriter, and humanist hand. It is warmer, cleaner, and more massive than other monospaced fonts, to say nothing of its versatile stock of styles (five weights, each with an italic, plus small caps) or its extended family (Nuvo Mono is a monospaced counterpart to the FF Nuvo family, available in Typekit’s subscription library).

  1. This is good stuff but is there a way to preview the fonts in a browser? hasn’t been updated in some time.

  2. Love the color scheme in the CSS screenshot. Is it an existing text editor theme or your own?


    1. I’d like to know too!

    2. Tim Brown says:

      Sorry, I don’t quite remember where I found this color scheme. I vaguely remember eye-dropping colors individually, but it looks a lot like Specials Board — maybe I manually copied one of those other editors’ themes that were its inspiration.
