New display typeface from Rosetta, Gridlite's specimen looks disarmingly simple. It's not until you use the type tester that the power and variation of Gridlite becomes apparent.
The specimen opens with it's most striking feature: modernist animations of letterform compositions. Each area is a simple typetester with controls activated on hover.
Simple specimen for a simple typeface. Monoid is an open sourcing coding font. The specimen's features are a coding preview area to test various language rendering. This show's real empathy for Monoid's intended audience; they need to see the font in the language they use the most, in a theme they use the most.
Another page-based scroll-hijacking specimen, but in a good way. The overlay section – showing the different weights overlaid a weight of your choosing – is particularly well done.
FS Millbank is a wayfinding typeface by Fontsmith. The specimen is more like a presentaiton than a traditional format. The user zooms in, out, and through the typeface's various applications, features and design details. Compelling viewing.
