New font: Zeitung

Zeitung

Good news! Today we released Zeitung, a new sans serif font family. And that’s good news for various people.

Zeitung's zeitung

Type lovers will have their day made when they look at that lowercase e in the Black weight, will be happy there is a new style to bring their message across, and will enjoy playing around with the interactive newspaper on our homepage.

 

Zeitung specimen

Designers will appreciate the versatility of this extensive sans serif font family, its thorough execution, and all it’s features. If 8 weights and 5 figure styles are not enough, then maybe optical sizes or grades will meet the demands. Besides of the standard Zeitung font family, Zeitung Micro is developed especially for smaller point sizes. Screen typography requires optical sizes at larger point sizes than print, so web and app developers won’t be left in the typographic cold. Grades can be very handy for selecting the optimal weight, especially on screens. The way letters are displayed on screen can vary a lot between different circumstances. Maybe the interface of your next app requires a different grade of the text than your latest website? Zeitung allows you to change the weight of your text without any reflow of your text. Zeitung will help to bring your message across in many different circumstances, from large text in print to small type on screens. Zeitung has many features.

 

Relax, keep it flex

Pioneers, the most demanding users, the ultras, the geeks, and all those others who don’t take things for granted, will be happy to meet and greet Zeitung Flex™. With its almost endless amount of weights, Zeitung Flex™ takes you anywhere between Thin and Black. Either in case only one, but exactly that specific weight is needed, or when all weights should play a whole new game together. This game can be played not just somewhere in the future, but already today, on everybody’s computer. Flex fonts are not just supported by the most recent browser, but also by all those older browsers. Zeitung Flex brings unlimited styles all over the web. In the future, and also already today. What’s even better is that Zeitung Flex™ also brings these possibilties now to desktop apps like Adobe InDesign and Adobe Illustrator. With the help of CC-Extensions you can easily apply and combine those styles. This can be handy for selecting just a single, but exactly the right grade of text for your next project. Or this extension allows you to apply some of those fancy effects using all styles from Thin to Black on a line, paragraph or complete document. Relax, you can Flex.

Please welcome Zeitung.

New Font: Liza Lettering

Liza_Lettering_Preview

Lately we were wondering about the fact that despite the concept of a typewriter dates back at least to 1714, not much changed in the meantime. Why is that? Why do we accept digital type to be as primitive as it is? Why don’t we just make a lettering ourselves, instead of pressing keys?

As soon as we do not accept things to be as they are, everything becomes possible. Just try it out yourself. Say hello to Liza Lettering™.

Love is stronger than hate

You gotta love hate

Is there something you only love, without hating it a little? Can you hate something completely, without any love? Can love exist without hate?

 

Exactly 100 years after Edgar Rubin created his famous Rubin’s vase – the godfather of all figure-ground illusions – this poster is published as a typographic tribute to the Danish professor of psychology. If cannot read anything, you still have a nice heart to look at. Silkscreen printed in a super bright red color, this übersized poster requires some empty wall space. Seriously, this poster is pretty big.

 

This poster is an example of a (typographic) figure-ground illusion. These kind of optical illusions have a long history, we didn’t invent the concept. Read more about these kind of optical illusions in Everything is black and white.

Underware Latin Plus

Latin Pluzzz

Language support is one of the most important aspects of a font, together with the look and feel as well as the technical state & performance of course. You do not only want to know if a font supports a certain language, but also if it looks any good in that language. Those two can vary quite a lot.

 

After years of researching and improving our own character set with its accompanying language support, we are happy to reveal Latin Plus today. Well documented, pairing diacritics to languages, translated sample texts and offering the possibility to explore which of the Latin Plus languages are supported by the fonts on your computer.

 

Welcome to Latin Plus.

Hosted webfonts at Webtype

underware-webtype

It’s been nice to see our fonts being used across the internet since we started selling webfonts some years ago. Our self-hostable webfonts are finding their ways from the happy medium up to the corners of the web. Meanwhile we are developing more tools to let you customize webfonts in a way which fits best to each specific occasion. Our recent library upgrade already reckoned with more of such possibilities. Eventually these tools will become automatically available in your account.

 

Underware Is Now on Webtype
While some prefer self-hosted webfonts, others might prefer a hosted service. Those people will be happy to hear that this is reality as of today. A hosted service also paves the way for easy accessible free trials, for testing the real font files in a real-life environment in your upcoming project. Therefore we are pleased to now offer hosted webfonts through Webtype.

New font: Sauna Mono


Sauna Mono, one size for all

 

As from today the type family Sauna has a monospaced companion: Sauna Mono. Unlike most monospaced typefaces, Sauna Mono has a lot of flair. Although every character has the same width, Sauna Mono doesn’t feel forced into a box. Instead every character remains as warm and characteristic as the other Sauna typefaces. Some swashy characters give a lot of charm to this typeface, especially the italic lowercase characters. Their strokes fly all over.

 

Monospaced fonts are nowadays mostly used by programmers for coding, or to present complex information in a well-organized table. And mostly you need a timid, clear typeface for that. As a consequence most monospaced fonts are… well, timid and clear. Sauna Mono is everything except timid and clear. It’s expressive jazz on a dubstep beat. It’s Tarzan on a Swiss grid. Who said monospaced fonts are boring?

 

 

If you look for a reason to fall in love with Sauna Mono, we’ll give you a helping hand: just look at the long, swashy strokes of some lowercase letters. Those give a lot of charm to the family. Who wouldn’t like to fall in love with an f like this?

 

 

With this new addition of 4 monospaced styles, the Sauna family grows to a total amount of 15 styles. These additional fixed-width fonts make the Sauna family utilizable for more complex tasks. Typesetting tables of an annual report made within a knotty corporate identity for example.

 

Introduction offer

Sauna Mono is now available as a desktop font as well as a webfont in our shop. You can save €25,– by ordering all 4 styles at once. Even better: because Sauna finally has a new buddy, you can give one Sauna Mono for free to one of your friends if you buy the complete Sauna Mono package yourself. This introduction offer runs until 12 July.
