TXT101 Review at Typographica

TXT101 Review at Typographica

“TXT101 is lorem ipsum for lorem ipsum. A winking, 52-style family in four weights, TXT101 provides a visual alternative to placeholder text. It’s a mock font that mocks not.”

A great TXT101 review has been spotted over at Typographica, written by André Mora.

“Once you get the hang of it, you can combine styles and create unique rules and borders. Mix up the weights, and you’ll find that TXT101 doesn’t just set text in the abstract, it can finish off a real page with a fully realized frame. Now, what’s Latin for: ‘Fake it ’til you make it’?”

Type Release: Armature Neue Sans By Bob Aufuldish

Armature Neue Sans

New typeface from designer Bob Aufuldish.

Armature Neue Sans is the clean and quirky sanserif counterpart to Armature Neue. Armature Neue is itself a redesign and expansion of the four-font Armature family original released in 1997. The updated Neue families each consist of twelve weights, including eight new cuts: Extra Light, Light, Extra Bold, Black each with matching italics. Although intended as a display face, a number of OpenType alternates are included that help regularize the type for text settings.

Carouge Pro, A Typeface with Range

 

Cryptic - Carouge Pro

Carouge Pro by Andre Simard now graces our virtual typeface shelves. With sixteen fonts from Ultra Thin to Ultra, Carouge Pro offers an amazing range. It’s pretty much our favorite typeface to use when tapping out messages these days. From the type designer himself:

When I designed Carouge, I wanted to create a typeface with a sober appearance and a dash of audacity. Carouge provides a fine balance between two different worlds.” —Andre Simard
