Hire John the Writer John Ellis is a Toronto writer and creative director, specializing in corporate content for web, mobile and print. This Letterpress inspired Capital P was created from a typeface called P Bradley, which was designed by William H Bradley in 1894. Nitti Grotesk is the proportional companion to Nitti and part of a larger collection of grotesque-inspired typefaces. GT Sectra is a contemporary serif typeface combining the calligraphy of the broad nip pen with the sharpness of the scalpel. Parmigiano Typographic System (named after Parma, the city where Bodoni established his printing house) has the stated ambition to be the most extensive family of fonts ever to have been inspired by Giambattista Bodoni. Magma is a rare sans serif typeface family designed explicitly for use in both text and display applications.


February may have been a short month, but with it came a slew of new typefaces that we just had to share. Last week, we had a look at the Modern typeface and to continue this series of posts on font categories, today we’ll take a look at the beautiful Old Style typeface. Old Style (occasionally referred to as Humanist) typefaces are based on hand lettering of scribes and they first appeared in the late 15th century, before Modern typefaces. Old Style typefaces are considered to be the best type for large amounts of body text on paper. Both the Domaine Sans Display and Fine have exuberant detail and high contrast; whereas Domaine Sans Text is more robust and pragmatic for extended text-setting. I think for all of us, our design work can only improve when we become more aware of the different categories of fonts, their characteristics and similarities, and for what purpose they are most suited, whether we work in web or print design.


One way to become more conscious of typefaces is to make an effort to look more closely at type.
If you find that’s the case, you could consider using the fonts below for headings and sub-headings.
