Great New Fonts From URW++

We're very proud to announce the addition of some great new fonts to our collection from the folks over at the URW++ Type Foundry.

Below are some of the great new fonts available for purchase:


Cut Off

The Cutoff™ Pro typface family was designed by Fulvio Bisca as an elegant, unusual and legible semi-serif with contemporary flavor. Cutoff Pro features a balanced and readable design good for publications, in text and headline sizes. It has an extensive character set including support for Greek and Cyrillic.



Alcuin Pro

URW Alcuin Pro typeface was designed by Gudrun Zapf von Hesse and produced by URW++ . Alcuin Pro is an elegant, calligraphic style featuring OpenType typographic features including true small caps, old style figures and more.



Filo

The Filo™ Pro font family is a very beautiful and highly legible typeface family with regular, medium and bold weights. It was designed by Saskia Noll to render well in text sizes and as headlines. Filo Pro is a modern interpretation of the humanistic serif: not too dominant, with soft and organic forms. Filo Pro comes with an extended Latin character set including a large number of beautiful ligatures as well as small caps and different sets of figures.



Neustadt

The Neustadt™ font family was originally designed as a corporate font for Sport 2000, one of the leading buying groups in the European Sport Retail Industry. The characters have smooth curved spines and little contrast combined with a big x-height. These characteristics make Neustadt perfectly usable for many applications in text and headline sizes.


 
 

Today is the day for our big announcement: Comic Sans Pro is here!

April 1, 2011 – The type enthusiasts at Monotype Imaging are pleased to announce the Comic Sans® Pro typeface family.

Featuring elements such as speech bubbles and cartoon dingbats, Comic Sans Pro extends the versatility of the original Comic Sans, designed by Vincent Connare for Microsoft in 1994. “Hats off to Monotype Imaging for enlivening Comic Sans and getting it back to its roots as a comic book lettering face. Now everyone can write with more panache – and look even more like a pro using swashes, small caps and other typographic embellishments,” said Connare.

“Every day, millions of people rely on Comic Sans for countless applications ranging from scrapbooking to school projects,” said Allan Haley, director of words and letters at Monotype Imaging. “Comic Sans is also a favorite in professional environments, used in medical information, instructions, ambulance signage, college exams, corporate mission statements and executive reprimands – even public letters from sports team owners to their fans. Breaking up with your spouse? Why not write a letter in Comic Sans Pro, embellished with a typographic whack!, pow! or bam! Comic Sans is everywhere, and now it’s even better.”

The Comic Sans Pro family includes regular and bold fonts, in addition to two new italic and bold italic fonts drawn by Monotype Imaging’s Terrance Weinzierl. “Our aim is to put the ‘fun’ back in ‘functional.’ We can’t wait to see Comic Sans Pro used in everything from second wedding announcements to warning labels,” said Weinzierl. “Long live Comic Sans!”


Comic Sans Pro contains a versatile range of typographic features including swashes, small caps, ornaments, old style figures and stylistic alternates – all supported by the OpenType® font format. In addition, Comic Sans Pro includes a set of ornaments and symbols, including speech bubbles, onomatopoeia and dingbats, pre-sized to work well as bullets.

Based on the OpenType cross-platform format, Comic Sans Pro is available as individual fonts or as a complete four-font family pack. Each font contains more than 1,000 characters. In addition to the OpenType features, the fonts include the WGL Pan-European character set, which supports western and eastern European, Cyrillic, Greek, Turkish and Baltic languages. An OpenType-savvy application is required to access the OpenType advanced typographic features.
