Dina Stencil (TipografiaRamis)

Decima/ Decima Mono (TypografiaRamis)
The letters of the designed sans serif Decima by Ramiz Guseynov have a very technical character in the upright styles. Elements of a handwritten font, which are expanded in the cursive, add an interesting contrast. Decima is available in three weights. A second variant, Decima Mono, picks up on the shapes of Decima but is designed so as to be monospaced.

A number of letters have alternative characters that are designed so as to rule out confusion. Aspira is available in numerous styles with various weights and letter-spacings.
Large, triangular serifs characterize Sergio from Julia Joffre. Thanks to its very large x-height, the font is also perfectly legible in the smaller sizes, while the individuality of the font is fully on display in headline sizes. Sergio appears at once rough and friendly, historic and modern. You will love this diverse and well-equipped font, as well.

Aint Baroque (Nick’s Fonts)

Are You Shaw (Nick’s Fonts)
The decorative Are You Shaw from Nick Curtis, designed entirely of lines, is most effective in the larger font sizes.
Fordor Incised (Nick’s Fonts)
Fordor Incised from Nick Curtis is a reinterpretation of the Black Letter Tudor Black. Equipped with a strong inline, this solid font exudes splendor and elegance.
Plus de Vagues (Nick’s Fonts)
Plus de Vagues from Nick Curtis is a living and organic font, which seems unable to decide whether it wants to be an Antiqua or a calligraphic script. With its playful character, it speaks of a fantasy world of heroes, castles and challenging quests.
