Freight Micro from Phil’s Fonts

Freight Micro

Today we’re delighted to welcome Freight Micro to the Typekit library. This third member of Joshua Darden’s Freight superfamily (see also: Freight Sans, Freight Text) from Phil’s Fonts was designed for small sizes in print. On screen, its open, angular forms feel textured and rhythmic at small sizes. For larger headers, its sharp angles appear crisp and dynamic.

Styles of Freight Micro
Top to bottom: Freight Micro Medium, Book Italic, Black Italic, and Light

Freight Micro is available in six weights, each with a matching italic. Its four basic styles (Book, Book Italic, Bold, and Bold Italic) have been manually TrueType hinted to render well at text sizes, and the remaining eight styles are served with PostScript-based outlines for smooth rendering at larger sizes.

Upgrade to a Portfolio plan or higher to use Freight Micro. If you’re already a paying Typekit customer, enjoy the new typeface! If you’ve never given Typekit a try, sign up (it’s free!) and upgrade to a paid plan whenever you’re ready.
