Diamonds (Display Font): Tuesday Type Treat

Diamonds, designed by Hannes von Döhren, includes 11 weights. This super contemporary display font family takes full advantage of the geometric trend in design right now. (Bonus: MyFonts.com is offering the whole family for 30% off right now.)

The Diamonds type family was designed by Hannes von Döhren in 2012. It is an experimental search for new geometric letterforms, which are still easy to read and generate some unexpected attention. Hannes wanted to create a straight and clear typeface but pull away from the path of classic and well learned letter shapes.

The Diamonds type family is equipped for complex, professional typography. The OpenType fonts have an extended character set to support Central and Eastern European as well as Western European languages. Each font includes alternate letters, fractions, scientific superior/inferior figures and a set of arrows and geometric forms.
