Creating new fonts is only half the work. The other part is sharing and showing them off. That is the function that the blog performs for us…as a playground and workshop to test and share things in progress. 

We have discovered a few code solutions that will allow us to emebed these samples on the site and we are sharing those samples below; as well as some more customized options seen on some of our more recent blog posts, like here.

Lydia title card
Lydia is a new sans serif that was originally used for display purposes.

Although it only included an upper case character set, we are working to provide a complete character set for all uses.

Ballpoint Sans title card, a new sans serif font
Ballpoint Sans is derived from our other font, Ballpoint Regular.

This is a utility sans serif that is suitable for all uses from typesetting to display.
