New Font Release - 03.26.2014

New Font Release - 03.26.2014

Extreme Sans by Alex Kaczun for Umbrella Type

The inspiration for Extreme Sans came from the rounded alpha numerics which appear on license plates. Alex always hated the mono-width proportions and tabular look of these letters, but he liked the overall compact letter form and rounded edges. This enormous family of fonts can solve any typographic need and the best part is, it's easy on the eyes.

Font Feature - Glenlake

Font Feature - Glenlake

Filmotype Glenlake by Mark Simonson for Umbrella Type

Having disappeared from graphic design history, Filmotype Glenlake reappeared in 1994's "Ed Wood" with a starring role in the opening credits. The font however was initially named after a lake north of Chicago near the home of Filmotype's founders Al and Bea Friedman. Initially designed and released in 1955, this gothic sans-serif was re-mastered and expanded with exacting precision and includes a full international character compliment, automatic fractions, ordinals, an all-caps setting, and a suite of alternates in dynamic OpenType format.
