A curated list of digital specimens
of the highest quality. Updated daily.
Turbine is a neo grotesk with distinctive curves and open apertures. This is quite some specimen. Starting with a quick introduction and type tester, it moves on to a long list of branded samples in the same two-colour palette. The Process section is a particularly good read.
This is a deceptively simple specimen that, on further investigation, reveals different features in interesting ways. The type tester's controls are a little unusual. Clicking the 'read more' about the font opens a treasure trove of an article outlining the typeface's origins, inspiration, and design
What a fun specimen! Bright, bold typographic illustrations pepper the content explaining the typeface's features. Really refreshing design.
A specimen that reads like a product page, including often used conventions such as the alternating image and paragraph combination. Where this specimen breaks with convention is the navigation stuck to the bottom of the page.
A heavily stylised retro illustration opens the specimen before leading onto more conventional design patterns. It's a shame the aesthetic wasn't carried through to the features or back story of the typeface.
This is a really cool collection of specimens (as a catalogue, I suppose). Presented in a passive, scrollable format, the controls for manipulating the content ever-present at the bottom of the interface.
Super simple specimen from Paratype which has glyphs and languages as different sections. There is a tool menu (which is a little obfuscated) and in here are the usual controls to manipulate the text.
This is a really interesting user interface and specimen format. It's a type specimen coupled with a lengthy article in a refreshing interface for swapping between the two.
Tiny stacked type testers with variable font axis controllers. Simple but effective.
A simple digital equivalent of a flyer, I suppose. Stacked images of type samples for Haste. The larger weights particularly good.
Refreshingly simple. A full page type tester with three variable font axis controllers. That's it!
An in-depth specimen trying hard to display the many features and possible applications of the typeface.
