    Can you believe it’s September? Personally, my favorite thing about this time of year—aside from the weather—is all of the Oktober Fest activities, that pop up around town. What’s better than drinking beer in the streets and eating way too many pretzels? So if you plan on having an Oktoberfest celebration this year, you might consider using Bajern to promote it. Bajern is inspired by German frakturs “with a twist of Sweden.” But someone can see more old style like “King Arthur”. Anyway it’s a font with german heart, and you can see Bajern almost everywhere, while walking around Berlin. Created by Anton Bolin, art director of ACNE company, from Stockholm, Sweden, right in this month, in  September 2017. I see, someone like beer much?

Tillana is a refreshingly informal family of typefaces for Devanagari and Latin. The fonts were first published by the Indian Type Foundry as an open source project in 2014. Coming in at 1,021 glyphs per weight, Tillana has all of the characters necessary to set a variety of European languages, as well as Indian languages like Hindi, Marathi, Nepali, and more. The Tillana family includes five styles, which range in weight from Regular through Extra Bold. Tillana’s Latin do not connect; this part of the family is a non-joining script type. The Devanagari part is one of the few “true cursive” designs currently available for the script. Characters from both writing systems appear as if they were fluidly handwritten, particularly the Devanagari. Tillana’s letterforms are slanted at a 10-degree angle. The strokes are show visible contrast, and the dynamic counter forms are one of the design’s most prominent features. Tillana’s Devanagari base character height falls vertically between the Latin upper and lowercase letter heights. The Latin characters have a small x-height and long ascenders and descenders. Lipi Raval designed the Devanagari components of Tillana and worked together with Jonny Pinhorn on the Latin. This project is led by Indian Type Foundry, a type foundry based in Ahmedabad, Gujurat, India, who design contemporary Indian typeface families.

       Ready for some Spanish coloritos? Sevillana is named after a folk music style widespread in Seville (Andalusia) in Spain. The typeface is inspired by the lettering of commemorative plates which can be seen on the house’s walls in Andalusia. Those ceramic plates are handmade and each one is unique. Individual handwriting may vary but the style is always recognizable. Sevillana is a generalized character based on that diversity. Designed by Olga Umpeleva, artist of Brownfox, independent type foundry, based in Moscow. They specialize in the design and production of Latin and Cyrillic fonts for print and for screen. Brownfox seeks to create quality typefaces according to the contemporary requirements of design trends and technical environment.

        Formal Scripts are great typefaces to suggest elegance, quality, refinement and luxury. They are used a lot in print publishing, but you don’t see many formal scripts used on the web. Isn’t it? Mostly because their tiny hairlines breaks and disappear when used at small sizes on the screen. Also, they usually have long ascenders and descenders, and the lowercase letters look too small when compared to most sans or serif fonts. More over, they are usually quite condensed, making them even more difficult to read. That’s why Pablo Impallari (work name Impallari Type), artist from Argentina, Rosario, designed in 2013 a script type, specifically tailored for web use, that can survive being set even as small as 13px. So let’s thank him and go using his Petit Scripts, because it’s gorgeous!
