Beatrice Display
Very interesting! Good personality.

Beatrice is a new kind of typeface. The family is an exploration of contrast methodologies, combining various aspects from the canon expansionist systems, inverted contrast, and the contrast behavior of standard sans-serif grotesks. These methodologies were dissected and used as cornerstones in building our own system, with the final result landing largely in unexplored territory. Built on the foundation of a traditional American Gothic but with tight-as-can-be spacing, the superfamily spans a robust set of weights and includes 2 optical sizes: a super high-contrast, tightly packed Display cut, as well as a standard low-contrast cut, designed to function beautifully in a wide range of optical sizes.

"Equity" font at Typography for Lawyers
Intro­duc­ing Equity, a text font I’ve designed, inspired by legal typog­ra­phy and the needs of legal writ­ers.

Equity is mod­eled on one of my favorite fonts of the 1930s, Mono­type Ehrhardt. Like Times New Roman, Ehrhardt was made under the super­vi­sion of Stan­ley Mori­son. Morison’s goal was a hand­some face in the Jan­son style, but with the space-saving fea­tures that had made Times New Roman such a hit. So Equity is rooted in the virtues of clas­sic, ele­gant let­ter­press typog­ra­phy.

"Concourse" font at Typography for Lawyers
Intro­duc­ing Con­course, a sans serif fam­ily that takes inspi­ra­tion from the great geo­met­ric sans ser­ifs of the 1930s, but that doesn’t skimp on ver­sa­til­ity, warmth, or per­son­al­ity.

Con­course was orig­i­nally intended to be a revival of Metro, an under­rated sans serif of the the early 1930s. (Metro was also the first type­face by future type-design hero William A. Dwig­gins.)

But when I revis­ited sam­ples of Metro, I real­ized that even though there was much I still liked about it, there was just as much that seemed dated and uneven. Concourse needed to go its own way. And it did.

Jessica Hische — Brioche Font
Designed by Jessica Hische, it’s a versatile roman, modeled after a cornucopia of 19th century samples with the inclusion of, as Ms Hische puts it, “Some special swashy characters!” It’s perfect for (again borrowing from Ms Hische), “Weddings, snobby cocktail menus and anything remotely old-fashioned.”
