Great looking monochrome colour palette for this striking specimen for Sebenta. Big, full width type displayed in stacked layouts of components with text long and short, large and small.
A catalogue specimen, but a sensitive reimagining of a printed specimen to digial form. More traditional in its approach, the specimen leaves no stone unturned; it is comprehensive. A full glyph preview, download the printed PDF, and an accompanying long-form article on the history of the design.
Handwriting fonts can be difficult to produce good specimens for. Especially those which have inbuilt features such as auto-ligatures and interesting alternates to mimic the inconsistency and quirks of human-made lettering. This specimen for Goskar does a good job at highlighting those features on a backdrop of a useful specimen.
Simple and functional specimen for Alkaline, but it's those designs in the carousel that really sell it. Bright and carefully designed, It'd be great to see more of them in context with the font features.
The type tester in Owners is really a hero image. Letting the type do the talking with some simple controls. This specimen really does take advantage of every available pixel with very long scrolling page with multiple type testers.
The striking element of this specimen for Deia is the mosaic of coloured panels featuring different weights and styles for different types and length of content. Nicely done.
There is much to get excited about with this specimen. Interesting rethinking of conventional components such as the opening hero carousel. But it's the explanation of the features that really stand out.
Java Sans is an experimental typeface and this playground specimen really demonstrates it. Change all kinds of metrics from points, stroke with, brush shape, and animation speed.
This specimen is all business and really well done. It's about giving the user all the tools they need to make a good decision and making it easy to buy. The switchable opentype feature components are particularly good.
