Trending Typefaces and Type Styles 03
Made Somewhere takes a deep dive look into an array of modern typefaces with subtle features, including ink trapping and spreading.
The following typefaces GT Pressura, PolySans, and Clifton are visually striking and distinct, yet flow with ease and clarity.
GT Pressura by Dominik Huber and Marc Kappeler
GT Pressura is inspired by metal-type printing history as well as engineered letters stamped onto shipping boxes. It uses the visual gesture of ink spreading under pressure as a stylistic device, offering an alternative to more spindly typefaces of the digital age.
PolySans by Milos Mitrovic
PolySans is a fresh take on mid-20th century classics, visually distinct from its predecessors by a subtle soft-edge inktrap feature. While the Roman styles embrace conservative proportions and dynamic, its exaggerated italic forms break all genre rules to a degree where its concept almost takes the shape of a script serif, but still calmly rolls back to its non-italic interlocutor. PolySans comes in proportional, monospaced, and wide cuts which makes it highly versatile companion to any design task.
Clifton by Yoann Minet
Clifton – inspired by the Athenian typeface of the British Type Foundry of 1896. Structured with both finesse and contrast, this typeface exudes confidence and style. Its distinctive character and slender style makes it a unique choice for added depth and engagement.
