New Type

Veer recently announced the addition of several new type collections and exclusive individual typefaces to its growing collection.

TypeTogether, a collection of feature-laden fonts, has been expanded  with the addition of four fonts; Etica , Rue, Edita Small and Skolar. Etica, created by the well-known Italian design firm LeftLoft, is a strong and versatile sans serif that rests aesthetically somewhere between a grotesque and humanist style. It successfully combines masculine force with female delicacy and includes soft strokes and open counters, while Edita Small expands the existing Edita family with four new fonts designed to work perfectly at very small sizes.

Veer has also added other new collections and typefaces including:
Brownstone – Alejandro Paul’s latest original 21st century masterpiece is a soft, monoline sans-serif with ornate details inspired by the historic brownstone buildings of Brooklyn, New York. Brownstone joins the Umbrella collection. The draftsman-like letterforms couple with decorative frames and ornate details to reflect an old-meets-new aesthetic.

Facetype Foundry has joined Veer as part of its Umbrella collection, inaugurating the relationship with nine new type families. Facetype, founded in 2008 by Marcus Sterz and Andrej Waldegg, specializes in imaginative display types, with many exploring the use of multiple overlaying pieces to create unique multi-colour typography.

The Alphabet Collection draws inspiration from 20th century American pop culture. Michael Doret – founder of Alphabet Soup – designs typefaces reminiscent of vintage matchbook covers, theater marquees, enamel signs and mid-century packaging. His work has been featured in Time magazine and the KISS, “Rock and Roll All Over” album cover.

Dunwich Type founders – this collection has been created by James Phuckett. His most recent release, Armitage, is a sans serif type family in 12 styles, which evokes the vintage warmth of American typography from the late nineteenth century, with asymmetrical strokes and subtle flares.
