The formal showing of this specimen shows web typography at its best. Beautiful type, quality educational content, and imaginitive layout.
This is a great specimen. Every panel is editable meaning you get to play with the various sizes, weights and settings in context. The specimen is further bolstered with full character set, language support, opentype features, and a downloadable PDF specimen.
A single colour specimen that mixes geometric shapes with individually typeset single words in the many different weights. The specimen closes with a glyph set and demonstration of the many features of the typeface.
An interesting specimen, but if only this was in web fonts! Stacked images of various incontext settings are really what sells the typeface here. Alternating black and white, large and small text across the various weights have striking appearance.
All Newlyn's specimens follow the same, templated (but slick) design. Simple cues, such as the flashing cursor, invite users to interact with the specimen further.
This is a fun specimen. Beautifully designed to match the feel of the typeface, the specimen initially takes you through the origin and inspiration of the work. There's a lot to dig into here: a long form essay, beautifully designed little panels of type features and testers.
