Embossanova font family


Designed by Stephen Boss in 2011

Emboss Fonts

In the heady atmosphere that dominated the world of typography in the mid-1990s, the American Stephen Boss founded his Emboss Fonts label. As Boss had become accustomed to using brush and quill in his youth, even today he very often eschews the use of a computer to design his fonts. Many of his early fonts evoke the spirit of the 1990s although Emboss Fonts now also includes a range of typefaces with a more traditional design.

You can find out more about the typefaces of the Emboss Fonts Library in the following.

Babalon
The rounded design of Babalon, whose characters have been reduced to just a few curves, gives the uppercase letters an unusual, drop-like appearance.

Chubbét
A first glance, this font – a sans serif derived from Renaissance Antiqua – may appear to be simply another ordinary working typeface. But look again and many tiny irregularities become apparent that provide the font with its distinctive vitality.

Crossell
Crossel was inspired by linocuts and the style of older comics, is available in three weights and is particularly suitable for use in headlines and short texts.

DNA
DNA with its bizarre rounded letter forms linked by a central line is ideal for music-related projects, for example.
DNA


Draminex
With an eye to the ridiculous, Boss claims this font is the result of a bout of sea-sickness. The vertical lines represent ships’ masts and the horizontals are the coastline.

Elefont Emboss
With its letters composed of various forms, Elefont Emboss is plump, brash and heavy – but all in a positive sense.

Embossanova
One of the few serif fonts in the Emboss font library. Although it is derived from a traditional antiqua font, Embossanova still clearly emanates the typographical spirit of the 1990s.

Eurydome
When creating Eurydome, Boss was inspired by the sans serif font Venus™. This conspicuous typeface is suitable for use in many headline contexts and is not without a certain graceful elegance.

Fax Font 98
The name says it all. This font looks as if it is in a text that has just been transmitted by fax.

Oolala
The fonts used in older French posters stood model for Oolala. The font reflects the vibrancy of the Art Deco movement.

Phervasan
In spite of its small matrix, the pixel font Phervasan is still readily legible. An ideal partner for DNA in electronic music-related projects, for example.

Thai One
Bring a touch of the Orient to your projects using this typeface that imitates Thai characters.
Thai One


Tobago
Tobago has uppercase letters only. The design is used to differentiate between majuscules and minuscules. The bold capitals are more reminiscent of a sans serif font, while the minuscules appear inspired by manuscript.

Zyncho
Although the rectangular character of Zyncho, inspired as it was by playing cards, is quite apparent, finely drawn line extensions provide the font with its own, individual vitality.
