ff marselis
Featured FF Marselis by Jan Maack

We’ve seen a fair amount of typefaces pop up over the last couple of months, but here are few of our favorites.

ff marselis
FF Marselis by Jan Maack

FF Marselis crossbreeds geometric and humanistic forms, creating a freshly dynamic sans serif family. All of the counters in the typeface are open; this aids readers’ eyes quickly flow across lines of text, without experiencing hang-ups.

Aranjuez Pro by Alejandro Paul/Sudtipos

Aranjuez is the latest Koziupa and Paul adventure. This time, they max out on calligraphic art deco, then add a healthy dose of the thick-and-thin mantra that’s been so trendy for quite a few years now. The result is neo-psychedelia in an upright cross-breed of pseudo-wood deco and ornamental calligraphy, complete with alternates, swashes, endings, playful contrast treatments, and even background possibilities.
