63% off Voltage by Laura Worthington Until September 12th, 2014.

Another display typeface by Laura with the usual heap of swashes, alternates, etc. that typifies her work. This one brings to mind Thirsty Script – more specifically the soft variation – by Yellow Design Studio. That’s not to say they’re the same, more that they both bring a similar throwback, industro-mechanical script vibe to the table…

Though Voltage doesn’t cover the same weight/style gamut that Thirsty does, it seeks to achieve a different type of flexibility – for what it is – via an incredible amount of stylistic alternates and opentype features.

80% Off Quire Sans Pro by Jim Ford (Monotype) Until August 12th, 2014.

Only on rare occasion does Monotype discount their wares this deeply. 10 weights + italics and all the pro fixings you’d expect, but for less than $100.

Quire is both economical and versatile; renders incredibly well both large and small, and manages to carry a sense of both seriousness and approachability. For immediate comparison, Quire brings to mind Whitney by H&Co. or even the regular width Benton Sans by Font Bureau.

 ”My goal was to make a design that might fit in anywhere,” says Jim Ford about his Quire Sans™ typeface. “I wanted it to be highly functional and sexy at the same time.” With one foot comfortably in the realm of oldstyle design and traditional book typography, and the other in evolving electronic media, the Quire Sans family does, indeed, fit in just about anywhere. As for sexy, someone once quotably wrote, “A great figure or physique is nice, but it’s self-confidence that makes someone really sexy.” Yes, Quire Sans is sexy, performing confidently in virtually any setting.

80% off Sailec by Type Dynamic Until September 6th, 2014.

Somewhere between the Helveticas, Futuras and Proxima Novae, exists Sailec. Sailec is neither approachable, nor offensive, but excruciatingly neutral. Which may fit the bill perfectly in cases where exhibiting any sort of character – even modestly – is undesirable.

7 weights + italics for less than $35.

Sailec is a very clean typeface inspired by type foundry of the International Typographic style. The low contrast makes it very interesting in display. The Sailec family includes 7 weights, from Hairline to Black, with their corresponding italics. Each font includes OpenType Features such as Stylistic Alternates, Proportional Figure, Tabular Figures, Numerator, Superscript, Denominators, Scientific Inferiors, Subscript, Ordinals, Ligatures and Fractions. It’s a totally neutral typeface.

90% Off Adagio Sans, serif or slab by Mateusz Machalski Until September 3rd, 2014.

18 styles (9 weights + italics) for  $27 per. You can score a pretty swell workhorse family here for less than $90. Which is about as ridiculous as it gets for such a functional, complimentary suite of type like this. Regardless of your particular tastes, I think you’ll find it tough to argue with what’s presented here.

The Adagio Family is a part of Mateusz Machalski’s, Warsaw Academy of fine arts Master Degree Diploma in multimedia studio, conducted by Professor Stanisław Wieczorek and his brave PHD Jakub Wróblewski. Adagio is a modern type family. It consists of 3 main varieties: sans, serif and slab. Each one of them has it’s own “true italic” set. All of the styles together have over 400 characters in 9 different thicknesses. The Adagio family was created mostly for company identities. The idea was to create a wide range of different varieties which are stylistically consistent.

75% Off Filson Pro by Olivier Gourvat (Mostardesign) Until August 3rd, 2014.

http://bit.ly/1o7VQPB

As far as geometric sans type goes these days, Filson seeks to deliver a little more distinction & character v. simply apeing the best in class. (Proxima Nova, Gotham, Soleil and the like…)

I don’t know how I feel about the wacky R and K situation here, but at least it feels fresh? Like DStype’s Estilo, but not at the expense of its general functionality.

Open counters & bowls; exaggerated curves and generally short & wide proportions all serve to capture a friendly, approachable appearance throughout.

8 weights + italics for not a lot of cash money dollars.

75% Off Andes Rounded by Latinotype Until August 16th, 2014.

Andes Rounded, designed by Daniel Hernández, is a display typeface that has neo-humanist characteristics. Its different terminals, among other elements, give it a look of mixed typography.

This typeface contains additional italic glyphs (a, y, z, g) that help to emphasise text or words. Andes is based on the design of Merced and both of them share several features.

Ahmet Altun is Running 90% Off both Halis Grotesque, and its rounded variation over myfonts again until August 14th, 2014.

Check it out if you’re into that mid-century geo-sans vibe that HVD blew up a few years back with their top 5 entrenched Brandon Grotesque.

At 90%, Halis covers a ridiculous amount of ground considering the damn-near-free discount price. Tough to argue with the value here, coming in at just shy of $20 for 32 fonts.

Peaches and Cream is a bold brush style script family of three weights, ornament set and an all caps font.

80% Off Modernica by Latinotype Until August 3rd, 2014.

Leave it to the folks at Latinotype to breathe new life into a typically tired/staid class of type. Modernica packs about as much character into a grotesque as you can without impacting its core functionality.

Modernica is an excellent tool that provides a large range of possibilities in design work. It is a sans serif font that contains eight weights plus matching italics. All Modernica typefaces include a set of small caps, ligatures, contextual alternates, modern and old style figures, superscript and subscript, numerators and denominators, among other OpenType features. 

Modernica is the extension of the Mazurquica family, a condensed grotesque font created to be used in titles looking for impact. Based on the Mazurquica structure, it was designed as a new font for both headlines and continuous text. Modernica seeks to go beyond the grotesque style, — a style that perhaps looks coarse on occasions, maybe for its excessive geometric feel — and instigate a more fluid and friendly structure while remaining solid in its use.
