Cedar branches out with five new weights

Since its January debut on Future Fonts, Cedar has grown from three weights to eight! The typeface’s unique angular logic yields dazzling graphic forms in the extremes, from the whittled-down Thin to the sturdy Ultra.

The typeface is still under development—italics and character set expansion are planned for future updates. Snag version 0.2 now, and Future Fonts will keep you up to speed with free updates as Cedar continues to grow.

Ballast packs a punch

Ben Kiel’s new typeface Ballast is here, hot on the heels of the release of Cedar. Version 0.1 of both typefaces are available exclusively from Future Fonts. Ballast’s strong but playful voice comes from a unique strategy to shift weight into balance while maintaining tight clearances. Bulky shapes pack into spaces carved out of other strokes, creating curled counterforms that provide a diversion from the monotonous rhythm of slab serifs.

Aglet Sans: just like Aglet Slab—but less so!

(Less serif, that is.)

Aglet Sans is the new streamlined companion to our previous release Aglet Slab, sensitively redrawn but springing from the same ethos: roundness is a disposition, not mere ornament. Narrow and straight-sided, Aglet Sans playfully exploits a system of angles and corner radiuses to arrive at a vocabulary of shapes that becomes more diverse and intriguing as it grows heavier, and feels as at home in editorial design and corporate branding as it does on the web. Try & buy Aglet Sans

A new serif typeface: Study

Our newest typeface has been waiting fifty years to be finished.

Study is based on an alphabet concept by designer and engraver Rudolph Ruzicka, first published in 1968 but never completed as a typeface. Now our own Jesse Ragan has reimagined it as a stunning 12-style family, full of unexpected twists and turns.
