Hera Big (Serif Font): Tuesday Type Treat

Hera Big is a serif font designed by Pagan & Sharp, a small studio based  in Brooklyn founded in 2011 by Juan Carlos Pagan and Lucas Sharp. This font family unapologetically celebrates the ball serif. It would look amazing set large on the cover of a magazine.

Hera Big is a type family in eight weights and 16 fonts. The family explores the motion and fluidity of the ball serif, in an evolution from its previous identity as a counterpart to the slab serif. Informed by great fat-faces from Figgins to Lubalin, but never deferring to precedent by default, Hera is a fresh mix of originality and organic form, never sacrificing function for beauty.
