Recursive Sans

An amazing variable typeface under development. Not just a typeface, but a 'typographic palette for vibrant code & UI'. Another specimen that tells the features and benefits of the font through interactive and instructional design patterns. Continually inviting the user to get their hands on the typeface, rather than passively observing.

Georgia Pro and Verdana Pro

Superb simple specimen for the web's favourite typefaces: Georgia and Verdana Pro. The best bit about this specimen? The text is all set in web fonts. And it's crystal clear and sharp as a result. Georgia Pro looking especially good.
