Rene Bieder did it again, his wonderful taste in shaping typefaces delight us again with this release of Choplin, a geometric Slab Serif font, base on Campton. Rene describes his own font in this way:
Choplin is a modern and clear geometric slab serif with a sturdy heart. It was designed based on the Campton Family, with the same principles in mind: geometry, simplicity and neutrality. As a consequence, Choplin could be seen as an immediate companion to the CamptonFamily. However, during the process lots of details were changed in order to sharpen the slab serif character which resulted in a slightly different interpretation.
Similar to Campton, it is perfectly suited for graphic design applications ranging from editorial, corporate, web, interaction to product design. In addition, it has an extended range of alternative glyphs, ligatures and opentype features which provide flexibility and uniqueness wherever it is placed.
You can get the font with a huge discount of 85% off that’s mean $35 for 18 fonts. If you have followed Rene for some time you will know that this kind of offer never repeats, the normal price of this professional font is $250.
Rene Bieder the master designer behind Quandon, Gentona, Canaro and other lovely fonts, is launching a new geometrical Typeface derivated from Canaro: Campton.
Campton is a simple sans serif with a geometric skeleton, based on the mid to early twentieth century visual trend of achieving neutrality. Although, there are a lot of typefaces focusing on similar principles, tries to find its niche in the field of anonymous typefaces by combining simplicity with a subtle friendliness. It is perfectly suited for graphic design application ranging from editorial and corporate design via web and interaction design through to product design.

November is gone, but he left us with amazing releases on the type-scene, my favourite type designer Rene Bieder release a beautiful font Galano Grotesque (which you can get at $45 the whole family of 40 fonts), then we have revivals like DIN Next Slab wich is a beautiful din font with rounded edges and of course: Slab. The S-Core Type Foundry released a new variant of their fonts Circus and Magic: the Rough version. And Latinotype is following the Rough trend with their variant of Trend, the Trend Rough (yeah isn’t word play, is real, but beautiful). Better check by yourself this releases and choose your favourite typeface, click on the name to see details:
Galano Grotesque is a geometric sans in the tradition of Futura, Avant Garde, Avenir and the like. It has a modern streak which is the result of a harmonization of width and height especially in the lowercase letters to support legibility. Galano Grotesque aims to be a universal weapon not only because it works great in headlines, short and long copies but also because of its subtle neutrality. It comes in 10 different weights with matching italics and is equipped with a set of powerful opentype features including alternative glyphs, fraction, arrows, ligatures and many more. An extended character set, supporting Central, Western and Eastern European languages, rounds up the family.
During the design process of the alternative glyph shapes of Galano Grotesque, the interest of creating a standalone version emerged rapidly. This was the birth of Galano Grotesque Alt. Not only because of the legible and unique character created by the alternatives, but also because this could be the small copy embracing stylistic companion to Galano Grotesque. In addition to the alternative glyphs, the height of descender and ascender was increased, supporting structure and rhythm. When finishing Galano Grotesque Alt, it turned out to not only work great in small and long copies but also to be a great performer in headlines and short copies.
Finally the kings of the best fonts released this past year. It was very tough to choose the top 10, but this is how the market dictated the trend on this past year. Rene Bieder, Fontfabric and Laura Worthington are the great winners of this 2014, their neat, dedicated work deserves the first places of this list.
