We know you’re busy and the Internet is a crowded place, so we’ll try to give you a little reminder on Fridays of what’s going on out there. Below please find five recent FontShop-related threads that you may have missed.


FontFonts Are Here!

A new batch of FontFonts have arrived! FF Franziska, new additions to FF Max (now including a Condensed width and support for Cyrillic), FF Mister K (with a new variant, Splendid) and new FF UI Icons are all now available. A heaping bunch of continuing promotions from FONTYOU, Cocijotype, Laura Worthington, Abdo Fonts and more now at FontShop.

Using Type: Substrates

David Sudweeks continues his Using Type series which looks at the typographer’s process at the beginning of a project. He elaborates on the type of paper and other substrates to consider during this process.

25, Still Alive!

All of us here at FontShop want to thank AIGA SF and San Francisco Design Week for allowing us to take part in the super fun Studio Tours and celebrate our 25th birthday this past week. It was a blast seeing old friends and making a bunch of new ones.


We’ve delivered our most recent newsletter this week which includes all of the new FontFont releases and a new design HWT Artz by Erik Spiekermann and published by Hamilton Wood Type. Make sure you’re receiving them in your inbox. They maybe getting lost in the promotions section. If you use Gmail then you can drag and drop the FontShop Newsletter from your Promotions Tab to your Primary Tab.
