Typographers of the creative world rejoice! Christmas has, sort of, come early this year: Adobe and Montoype have just snuck down the chimney, glugged the port, polished off Rudloph’s carrot, and deposited 665 new fonts from 41 type families under the tree. It’ll be like unwrapping a shiny new Playstation 2 all over again. Remember how good that felt? Being 10? Not having any real understanding of the full and crushing weight of the anxieties and stresses that were soon to wash all over you, day in, day out? Today’s like that, all over again.
Slotted into every Creative Cloud subscription, the new typefaces are available to use now, so there’s no excuse to put off starting that project you’ve been pondering for years. “What,” you’ve said to yourself in quiet moments late at night, “typeface would I use though?” Seek, and you shall find. The new additions include ITC Benguiat, which is better known as the Stranger Things font, the classy retro stylings of ITC Avant Garde Gothic, and the London Underground inspired Gill Sans Nova.
You can browse all the new additions right here. Happy font-hunting everyone.
