Shift, an American slab-serif perfect for both taking the spotlight & sharing the stage

Shift is inspired by American slab-serifs from the late 19th century. The lighter weights, with flared terminals and prominent pointy serifs, take on the personality of a typewriter face while the heavier styles, with smaller counters and only thin spaces between characters, act more like an Egyptian for titling use. Shift’s unique flavor makes it a great choice as body copy in sizes down to 14px or as a display face in the spotlight.
Shift won an award from the TDC for Excellence in Typeface Design and was included among Typographica’s Favorites of 2012.

Fort, A sans-serif with a flexible voice and durable qualities

2012 – Jeremy Mickel
Fort is a contemporary grotesk, inspired by years of working as a graphic designer and the constant need for sans serifs with a flexible voice and durable performance. Its unique features are the squared shoulders and counterforms in round characters, subtly redrawn slanted italics, and consistent texture across all weights. Neutral enough to take on information design, corporate identity, and small text sizes, Fort’s refined details and personality shine in display.

Hey, MCKL?

So… I was wondering… does Shift have Opentype features?

Sure does, alternative numerals, and three stylistic sets.

Fort has just as many.

Like what!?

Three stylistic sets and old style numerals.

Can you help me set it up on my blog?

hahaha

No! Check out Webtype’s blog post.
